    I was under the impression that you get a lot of seedling's of a particular cross and then keep the best get rid of the rest?

    I buy up to 10 seedlings of any one cross. 100 would be better buy $$$ & space don't allow. I've been fairly lucky with my purchases. A lot of research helps as to the parents, if new to breeding it makes it difficult. I have my 1st ever Catt cross flowering (1 plant so far) & bud 1/4 open now. I have 200 to flower. (approx')

    Default Seedling

    I haven't posted this pic anywhere as yet, just sent to friends. I will post a pic when it's fully open. Its 60mm across atm. The plant is in a 90mm pot, just gone up from a 50mm.
    If this is the worst flower there could be some good ones.
