    Agree with Sriram- Nice job. A hard one to grow. Mine is struggling.

    they are difficult to grow for me too. I think they all come from the same parentage with "bad chromosomes"...same for violacea indigo, to much flasks and crosses from same parentage, it could produce vigorus progeny...and from some places they use too much bactericide/ fongicide...they can't thrive in you home.
    just my opinion.

    I have had it over a year and it is still alive. It is in the 4th location of my grow areas, hoping to find the environment it is happy with to grow a leaf.
