Very nice, HDD!
Imagine how big they would grow for our Asian friends, who seem to be able to grow standard-sized crypts into whoppers.

Wow....awesome HDD, love them all, what name's? New hybrids?
The 3rd look like 'Frost bite' or 'Cosmic Strom'

Kerry, I use to grow nearly 4 feet 'Elaine' ...(^_*)

Hi Chanin they aren't real new I think they were the last ones Jim released before he retired from doing hybrids about 2 years ago..
Creme brulee
Fever frost (never registered)
Platinum blonde
Elaine gets huge here also...I gave away most of those

Hi HDD - Beautiful plants, but to me they are only thought food as I can't even grow the small ones. Thanks for the pics, all the best, Nev.
