Yeah, unfortunately this particular clone is a bit weird, but it is in flower and the camera was on...

True and very different from all the dark ones too, I wonder whether there is an alba gene hidden somewhere in this particular clone.

I wish I could grow this species period ... mine grows so slowly it's actually getting smaller ...

Wish someone would make a hybrid between a dark one of these and a dark form of tonsum ... might get something easier to grow ?

Cheers,
Tim

So I gather from Todd & you that this species is hard to grow & flower?
