    Unhappy

    Just wondering, I have this one plant I might let flower if they are.. Its spring traps coming up are already starting to make me think this plant will be a beast this summer. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    not sure if the seeds will be an exact clone (i think they won't), but leaf cutting will be exact. if you want to propagate it, and be 100% sure to get a clone, leaf cuttings are best.

    Technoracer is correct.

    Cuttings and tissue culture propagation are considered clones.

    Seeds are not, as they take some DNA from each of the parents.

    not quite true. clonal intregity is influenced bygenotype, stress factors, cutting and transfering technique, and culture age [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
