A seed grown plant is a typical, plain and simple no matter what the parentage is. If I have two Maroon Monsters, and I cross them no matter what the seedlings look like they are typicals, even if they appear exactly the same as the parents. They are NOT Maroon Monsters. A true cultivar is a propagation of the exact original named plant, not it's brother or sister or cousin.
Fingers has proven over and over again that he cannot be trusted by using vague explanations, or politicians answers. Search this forum and you'll see that. Does he sell healthy plants? Yes. So if you're just looking for typicals, he's probably a good source. Can you trust that you're getting a cultivar? No, because seed growns are not typicals. By labeling a seed grown plant as a cultivar you're aiding the confusion with cultivars. Not to mention if you sell that plant as a cultivar, then that could be considered fraud. Your reputation will be no better than his. I have some cross seedlings sprouting as we speak that I know the parentage of. They will never be labeled as a cultivar even though their parents are cultivars, because they are not a cultivar. Regardless of their appearance. If I sell some which I'm sure eventually I will, they'll just be cool looking typicals. Why? They were grown from seed. Cultivars are clones, seeds are like babies. They have features of mom and dad, but they may have a feature from grandma or grandpa too.
Reputable sources got that way for a reason, because they are honest and fair. Not because they are just out to make a quick buck, but because they care about these plants and their conservation. Me personally, my reputation means more to me than making a quick buck, or falsely labeling a plant.
"It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it."
End rant. Happy growing everyone!
