Lamb's ear? Baby's breath? Which might you be referring to, and can you say more about what you have?

Edit: If you don't know, just describe the plant or post a photo.

I'd never heard of a plant called Lamb's Breath so I googled and all I got was stuff about Marijuana. https://www.google.com/?gws_rd...

There are a few Cannabis listed in the database with information: http://garden.org/plants/brows...

Welcome StevenB! I got a chuckle out of the thought of lambs' breath - I was thinking kind of milky? Please do let us know if your plant might be either lambs' ear or babies' breath and we can give you some ideas.

The other name for it is Lamb's Bread (medical grade) and it's not something that we should be talking about on ATP (IMO).

Greene, marijuana is now legal in both Washington and Colorado, slowly being decriminalized elsewhere, and I think it should be simply treated the same as any other plant in our database. How best to grow it, what diseases/pests does it suffer, etc.

Edited to add: I really think the original poster is likely referring to either lambs ear or babies breath, so whether marijuana should be a discussion subject is likely moot in this instance.

Deb ...

Until it is legal in more states, I disagree ... respectfully. The illegal grows up here have caused more problems to the environment than there is space to write in one post. There are plenty of sites where people can get info about how to grow the stuff. I'd rather see ATP stay out of that mess.

Smiles,
Lyn

Perhaps we should open up a general discussion perhaps in the Site Forum and see where folks weigh in? We discuss poppies, don't we? I don't see it as a political subject, just another plant on the planet. In any event, I'm a bit fearful of us running poor StevenB out of here by blowing his original post into something it quite likely is not. I see you've summoned Trish to this discussion - let's let her and Dave make a decision on how best to continue. Respectfully.
