    This first clone is 1.5" wide and I bought it from Ray Rand in 1983. The second is a bit smaller at 1.25" wide and I've had it since 2007. I tried an outcross, but it didn't take. Maybe next year.

    Mine is in spike, so thanks for the preview.

    Harry, "dimp" stands for "Died In My Possession", which is meant to put blame on the plant rather than the grower.

    I used DIMP out of context I think....it was not the plants fault as it was most definitely the grower in this case :(
