However, just for arguments sake, where is "local" for pickup?

Sold a couple of the 'Eden Black' divisions! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
All packed and ready to ship! I honestly didn't expect these divisions to be ready before at least next season. They grew so well and they have really established themselves very quickly!

I'm a bit closer in Fayetteville, GA but, alas, I don't have anything you would be interested in.

Hi, I do not have a lot of these plants to sell but I currently have another one up for bidding on eBay.

Update: Something unexpected happened. The Eden Black started putting out flower stalks. So far, I can see 3. It is unexpected because they are grown indoors where the climate remains constant at around 70 - 72f year round. Well, maybe lowest mid to high 60s in the winter, but for the most part stable temperatures. The lights however are connected to a timer that follows our sunrise and sunset. I think the slight temperature change and the sunrise/sunset lighting are the factors that contributed to the flowering. This is the same flowering progress as my VFTs that are outside so I know the ceph's flowering does coincides with our season.

Yay! Yeah, as long as the photoperiod changes with sunrise/sunset, Cephalotus will flower. My Hummer's Giant and OG Black are both flowering right now as well. Hoping to cross them :D

I genuinely want to try OG Black but it's apparently hard to find :lol: I was reading its description not too long ago. How do you like it?

Also I do hope the photoperiod sparks stalks. I'd like to cross my EB and HG together. Sounds like you have the same idea lol. Possible large dark clone? Absolutely

I really enjoy it. It definitely colors up more quickly and more intensely than my FTS varieties, Western Venom, and the Hummer's Giants I'm growing. It seems quite vigorous too.
