Laboratory-comment:
This strain is supposed to flower plainly earlier than other L. callosum var. callosum strains. That´s why we mention it separately and kindly ask customers not to intercross this strain with other callosum-strains which are later in flower. It seems essential keeping these clones apart from wach other.
