    I got this from Troy Meyers in May 2017. It is from 'MC6945's spontaneous seeds (by Rick Lockwood). Another plant from this flask flowered earlier this summer, so it took about 2 years after deflask. It wasn't doing too well in the flask according to Troy. Seeds were sown in Oct 2014, and reflasked 3 times. Troy considered the flask to be problematic even after 3 years, but I told him that it is ok. After deflasking, I lost quite a lot. Many of them wasn't growing much in the beginning, but a few of them eventually started to grow (quite rapidly). You can see quite a variation in the size within this compot. I'm actually surprised that two plants already flowered even though they are fairly small.

    Naoki you're doing better with fisheri out of flask
    than I've ever done with established seedlings.
    It's a cutie for a first bloom.

    Nice, thanks for sharing. I don't do well with fischeri either. :( My plants are bigger but no flowers.
