    It doesn't really matter what you believe in. We can never be entirely certain about the xTM clones, clone 1 has more macro traits and clone 2 has more lowii traits or it's the other way around (can't remember at the moment).

    Well we know for certain that lowii was the female parent. Havent you ever looked at lowii hybrids they are very variable. Like lowii x campy mine looks more like campy but my friends looks more like lowii, according to your reasoning two different plants mustve been used in producing the same cross

    Lowii hybrids are definetly variable but not nearly as much as the trusmadiensis that I have seen. Some look almost completely like lowii while other lean strongly on macrophylla. Keep in mind that this is also not black and white, it's a very confusing subject and will likely never be solved completely.

    I can explain that. The ones that look like lowii are lowii x macro the ones that look more like macro is macro x lowii as an example of this go look at the ask geoff mansell thread their male is a macrophylla x lowii but their female is lowii x macrophylla

    I'm talking about BE clone 1 and 2, I am pretty sure they are from the same batch of seed.

    What I am saying is that we can't be 100% certain, like I said one shows a lot more lowii and the other looks more like the classic lowii x macro.
