Default Re: Wording question on TARS 18171 African Rhino curator notes



The one which I had was quite interesting. Most notably, there were close to 100 pups which formed prior to flowering. Literally, the pups had their own pups, and the pups on the pups had their own pups. Never saw anything like it with any other variety. The pups did not increase in size until the parent plant flowered. The pups grew for a while and then sort of faded out. None seemed to have the vigor of the original plant.

The note, might be pointing to that lack of vigor in succeeding generations.

I didn't get to experiment further with this variety.
