    Post and brag away. There can never be too many pic threads. I love to look at cp pics. I really like the first pitcher, it's amazing.

    Those are all great looking!

    Do you grow yours as highlands?

    Pretty much. I grow them in a greenhouse, so they are somewhat subjected to southern California conditions. I do have a swamp cooler, but no heating. So they don't get enough light/heat in the winter, but they survive and even manage to grow slowly. Winter temps are usually upper 40s to low 70s, but can approach freezing and even get a couple days of frost in the front yard (only once in the back yard in the 20 years I've lived here - no greenhouse at the time and some very unhappy plants). It usually drops down at least into the mid 60s at night during the summer, except for the hottest few weeks.

    I just like this picture of a lower pitcher from one clone and the upper pitcher from another. the upper pitcher is actually bigger in this case.

    Mine is hanging in there. I have resorted to putting my highlands and helis into an ice filled cooler each night since we have had above 70 nights for months it seems. My vent x xTM is too big to fit so it is looking rough at the moment. I don't recall having this problem last year. Sadly, I am starting look forward to fall.
