After the DAVS convention in April, I decided I wanted to try some mini-sinn. Ordered 1 seed pod from Canada; harvested 1 pod from a plant I purchased at the convention in April.

Mind you, I h ave had NO EXPERIENCE with sinns, so had no idea what to expect from these seeds.

Less than 4 months later here is what I have. Don't know whether this is typical of these plants or not but I' m a plantin' and grin'n!!!

(!st) This is the tray of seedlings from a pod of Xanadu x self that accidently ripened;

(2nd) 36 seedlings potted from that batch.

(3rd) shows the total number of plants I got from a pod I ordered from Canada; must admit, I was disappointed in germ results -- but look 3 months FROM DATE OF SOWING I have these beautiful little blooms smiling at me!

I have no idea what to expect as I continue this growing adventure, but I know I have a new love!!
