    Default Dated Tags?

    Hi everyone!

    I was looking at plant tags today (yes I do need to get a life!) and several are dated. What should I infer from those dates? Potting date? De-flasking date? Any ideas, is there some standard meaning?

    Thanks as always!

    Most likely potting dates, although they undoubtedly varies by the grower. The first one might also be acquisition date (assuming the grower didn't flask it himself)

    Thank you Jason! That is what I suspected, but then I read something about one of my vendors on O.G.R.E.S. today and got to wondering.
