    Very nice plants BigBella!

    I too have noticed that sometimes B52s don't color up very well. I'm not sure what causes it. I mean, they're all genetically identical, but even in the same pot with the same exact growing conditions sometimes certain plants don't get color like others do. It's very odd.

    I also find that very strange, since most of the plants were identical in size and appearance when they were received; and it's only been with the passage of time that some variation has taken place. There remain a few plants which only gain a pinkish tinge to the leaves, regardless of the fact that they are all grown together under identical circumstances.

    Perhaps it's the whole "clonal integrity" concept in tissue culture -- though the variations also extend to vegetative divisions of original non-TC plants.

    Go figure . . .

    Thanks Butch. I am hoping that the plants increase in size as they did last Fall. They were capturing wasps.

    Love that B52. Fantastic. Mine never colored up too well either. I managed to kill it (and most my other vfts) this summer, so maybe the next one I get will look good as yours.
