    Each will be an individual clone. Whatever is produced cannot be called the original cultivar name however.

    They won't be clones. While all the genetic material will be from the 'one' parent, some alleles will double up and some lost in each individual offspring.
    And my comment on the low probability of it being the same cultivar earlier comes from the definition of a cultivar which is any plant that is identical in description to that of the cultivar, some brred true, most do not (as in this case, they do not) but always the chance an offspring can wi nthe genetic lottery.

    I find it endlessly entertaining to witness these arguments over what a clone/cultivar is or is not. Most amusing.

    The clone part isn't an argument right?
    The offsrping won't be anywhere near genetically identical.

    yes but thats not what he meant by clone. every seedling can be called a clone but that is not to say that the plants are clones of the parent plant, just that they are all different and unique (even if they appear nearly identical).

    It is entirely possible that I am simply ignorant of that definition, but can I be pointed anywhere where it is definded that way?
    Really just want to correct myself if I'm wrong.

    I wouldn't say amusing, but it's interesting to see people quibbling back and forth over totally irrelevant topics that are pointless.

    ANYWAY, let's get back to the topic at hand.
    What's their humidity right now?
