Final Comments: Absolutely beautiful plant. She was grown with minimal care and wasn’t given much focus and still produced right about what I expected from a 5L pot with organic soil in the sea of green style grow i did. Will definitely grow her again. As all off Stones and portal strains, a big plus factor is always the stability and ease of grow. I barely ever have any issues that aren’t in some way my mistake.
