Thank you. They will, but just might take a while for the tc.
On another note, I have a pup or 2 available that are quite dark. I have one saved for wstrickland1, but have another 1 or 2 available for trade. Let me know if anyone is interested...

I just bought one from Wellspring Gardens. It hasn't come yet but I'm excited to get it. I'll have to baby it along since it will need to come in the house in a few months anyway.

The good news is the one I got from them is not only doing great but it appears it is the real thing, which I'm learning is a rarity.

Nice!
That’s great to hear!
I’m building small collection to winter over in pots so that they’ll be ready to go in the ground in the spring

Yes, it arrived safely and has grown one new leaf. I'm leaving it in the same pot for a while until I can see that it is growing well.

How can you tell from such a small plant that it is the real thing?

My plant is starting to get along pretty good. Definitely not certain but all indications are that it's real

This was a few days ago. I am far from an expert and it hasn't matured/produced fruit but I think this is one of the few that can be ID'd at this stage. If it's not a TB then what on earth is it

And this came from the same peeps yours came from so I think that bodes well for you.

Mine didn't look as good as that. It only had one leaf and the starting of the second. The little squiggly top that starts a leaf. That leaf is out now. Yours looks great so I'm hoping I can keep it growing through the winter for next year.

I probably kept mine in a pot a bit too long but I got it during full swing of growing season. Yours will probably live in a container until next season I would imagine. Once it hit the ground it started growing very nicely. Good luck with yours.
