and all others.
I was checking out Davi's new offerings on the LA, and I noticed this note.
"All plants are grown in the ground with increase from natural division only.....No greenhouse, no bap, no proliferations, or any other artificial means of propagation have been used."
I have read that proliferations are identical to the mother plant genetically and I have also read that they may not always be identical.
So I was not exactly sure if this meant that there were "no proliferations" grown and sold or if only meant that "no proliferations grown by artificial means were grown and sold."
So I have a couple of questions about that.
First are plants grown in pots considered to be grown in ground, or does in ground only refer to plants not grown hydroponically in some way. I guess my real question on that is are "in ground plants superior" and in what ways are they superior and what exactly does in ground mean... field grown?
My next questions is about proliferations, are naturally appearing proliferations inferior when grown to maturity than the parent plant in any way?
One more question totally unrelated to the above:
I have a new scape on one of my seedlings and it has some nice branching, but the first branch is down low, only about four inches or so from the ground. I had never given much thought to a branch being too low(most of my plants are older and don't have much lateral branching just recently over the past two years getting better plants), but I can see that if this branch does not shoot upward and allow the blooms to be up higher than the foliage that could be a defect. Is it possible the branches will be up higher on the scape after another year or so?
For some reason I had an image in my head of a scape with branches all up and down the entire scape as being something I would want, but now after seeing this one it may not be.
