This variety of tectorum is not as fuzzy as the Ecuadorian and Peruvian forms, I believe that is because they were grown from seed in greenhouses here in California, which has prevented the trichomes from filling in completely. They are now growing in full fun with me, and the trichomes are quickly filling in. I believe these seed grown plants are actually tectorum Ecuador, but I have a policy of selling things as they are tagged when I receive them; these were simply "tectorum"
