|I have had Dark Cloud for a while now and it has done very well. Grows fast and produces lots of babies. Like most of my semps, I have more than one pot.
Name: Kevin Vaughn

|The reason for the name Dark Cloud is that "every dark cloud has a silver lining" and that silvery grey center was the inspiration for the name.
The Germans have used it a great deal in crosses and it has given some of the darkest seedlings ever. This spring I should see quite a few seedlings from it.
