I cant's shake from my mind the idea that i actually have the tall clone of the namwah, and the plant usually sold in europe are the tall ones, because i never see anyone mentioning namwah fruiting at 6ft for the first crop, like I see sometimes here in pics.

Does anyone know if there's a nursery in europe that seels TRUE dwarf namwah? I'd like to grow one, at the very least, for easyness to cover it during cold weather.
