    Good food for thought, that is most likely the case for my bellii. It was from BE, just before the announcement and I had considered myself "lucky" to be able to get it at all.

    Would this have occurred due the tissue samples having been "mericloned to death", so to speak?

    My bellii is in full sun though beige 50% shadecloth from 8-5year round, temps of 8-40C, constant high humidity (70%+), and always happy (about 2 years on).
