This is the reverse cross of the well known hybrid T. Lucille and possesses many of the same characteristics.  This cross tends to grow taller and thinner than a traditional Lucille, but the leaves are still very scurfy and densely covered in trichomes, while also producing a beautiful and ornate bloom.  Whether you get this cross or the reverse, this genetic combination is a must have


I only have one left, and it has two broken leaves 2-3 leaf layers down from the crest of the plant, they were shipped to me this way and they will not affect the long term health of beauty of the plant
