    Haha, no, it's a reference from a joke from debra wilson who does a great Oprah impression.

    Although, there's something I know she definitely owns, Dr. Phil.

    HOW CAN YOU CHOOSE WHEN TWO PLANTS MAKE SUCH DIFFERENT RESULTS?!

    I think I should just buy Borneo. I'm gonna need that much space.
    Fine.....but I've got dibs on Sumatra.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Trick question actually. They are both thorelii x aristo - from the same seed batch actually. One female (the top) and the bottom is male - but it goes to show you that even the same cross, same parents and same seed batch can yield very different results. I personally don't subscribe to the idea that the female has a stronger influence on the offspring.
