Well, this is a cross I couldn't pass up. Last time it was listed was in 2021. More blue genetics , and now I'm set. If I get something decent, will purchase the named plants and make a ton of seeds. I paid half, for what it sold in 2021.......

Biggest plant and about 4 months old.




I will be content growing the seedlings for 3 months in solo cups and planting outside. It's a lot of work keeping up with the watering and feeding of the bigger plants. Light is only at 50% and they are getting huge already.

Best way i have found to combat the fungus gnats, is to suck them up with a shop vac. I do this everyday, to keep them under control.

About 5 months old.  LED is still at only 50% of full power. Too bad I don't have the room to repot, would turn it up to 75%.

Hopefully first week of April, it's nice enough to get the big plants outside and in the ground.

Potted up 6 of 7, Blue Jean Cutoffs x Every Knee Shall Bow seedlings. Suppose to be 70 tomorrow, hopefully another 3-4 weeks can get the big plants planted out. Would like to start more daylily seeds first week of April.

April wasn't nice enough to get anything planted outside. Two weeks ago, dug and extended the bed.



The original Yoga Man x EKSB seeds auction arrived crushed, only two seeds were any good that germinated. Seller is going to send replacement seeds this Summer. Another person had the same cross, so I bought another 4 seeds.



Bonus seeds



Bought another lot of Desire Of Nations x EKSB seeds.



The 9 seedlings on the left will be planted out this coming week. Making room to start more seeds.
