I appreciate the input and taking time to respond. Anytime I can gather info from as many sources as possible its a good thing, chew the meat spit out the bones. Seriously, I really appreciate it.Just coming to watch the thread. Sound like your pretty hard on yourself for grower error but maybe those are just some plants better suited to, or had been breed to, grow outside. Seen much less healthy plants do better in flower.
Or not quite sure how old the seeds are really, but I do sometimes hear about the old weed that had little yellow flowers all over it. This might be one that could make its own gorilla patch in a few seasons if dropped in the right place...
