    Default I'm so weak

    I saw this guy at work yesterday, and the price was right so I had to have him. The only problem is there is no ID tag, so I'll need help with ID when it opens. My collection is now at 9 Catts. Thank God I don't have a lot of room.

    Quite a lot of buds there!

    Your best bet for ID is to contact the guy from whom you bought it. There are so many hybrids out there that accurately IDing is virtually impossible

    7 buds on 1 spike, you have to be an iron-man to leave it there.

    Good for you. I bet someone here will have an idea or two for you when the buds open.

    Cheers,

    I'm glad you agree....of course the $21.00 price tag added to the temptation. Hoping you guys will be able to help me ID when it opens. I'm so excited! I don't even know what color it is! I just hope against hope it's not the same mini catt I already have. *crossing fingers*
