A New Year's Special & A New Version!

“The world is changing: I feel it in the water, I feel it in the earth,and I smell it in the air.”

Full bright TREEBEARD LE in its natural habitat.

The  ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Team went deep into J.R.R. Tolkien's Fangorn Forest to bring back our 2018 New Year's Limited Edition, TREEBEARD.

The oldest of the Ents in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Treebeard was a tree-like creature, "a shepherd of trees," and as the wizard Gandalf said, "the oldest living thing still walking the Sun upon this Middle-earth."

As Ents do, Treebeard came to resemble the plants he herded, and the  ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ TREEBEARD is no exception. This LE is genetically designed to guard your grow in the coming New Year!

Like its namesake, ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ TREEBEARD is strong and slow -- high potency, slow growing indoor/outdoor plants. Although the "real" Treebeard was four meters tall, these are medium large plants at 1.925 meters tall and wide, and feature subtle sprite-like Entwives FX.  

(Entwives, you ask? Hey, we're NOT going to read LOTR to you! Go buy the Cliff Notes! Watch the movies! Google is your friend. Does this mean there's a LOTR set heading our way in 2018? You tell us!)

Two seed packs are on sale for L$420 and 10-seed bulk packs for L$2100 at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Central.


What's more, TREEBEARD is our first Version 4.19.905 release! So we've released a new HUD (Version 4.20180101) for your updating enjoyment!

Version 4.19.905 has several new features, but the most exciting is the new myGrow 2.0 web page link. Instead of the old hard to use single page list, the new myGrow is "paged" and provides several basic search filters to help you locate your currently growing plants. New version plants record more information about themselves: tint, glow, FX, and importantly, location. So for 4.19.905s, you're able to click a SLURL link on your myGrow 2.0 page that can transport you directly to that specific plant! (You'll still be able to see older version plants in myGrow 2.0. Those listings don't include FX, tint, and glow stats, and the direct teleport link isn't available.)

What's more, the myGrow 2.0 system encrypts your username and ID. Privacy, privacy, privacy! But as they say, better safe... Now, if somebody wants to see your myGrow page -- perhaps to figure out a buy or trade -- they'll have to get the link from you!

You'll find your personal link to myGrow 2.0 in the Help Submenu of every 4.19.905 plant as well as in the HUD Menu > Help Submenu of HUD 4.2018.

Additionally, we've added AutoPause and PassGroup controls to the plant menu. Now, AutoPause is available to HUD-phobic growers (who get no benefit from PassGroup anyway). but more importantly, this lets you fix any cross-ups when configuring a group with the HUD. (Yes, we all forget to click plants "HUD On" when setting up groups! 😜)

AutoPause and PassGroup are found in the new Special Submenu of plants' Advanced Menu. This meant moving the Banner button from the Advanced Menu back to the Main Menu to make room for the Special Submenu on the Advanced Menu.

Confused? Good! The bottom line is that you're now only two clicks instead of three from hiding hovertext banners! (Djeaux thinks this is the coolest part of the new version, but he doesn't like text banners.)

As always, the new version incorporates a lot of small, mostly behind the scenes changes to make the growing experience work better and provide you with easy access to the tools you need to take your breeding projects to the next level. And oh yeah, we sometimes change things just to make sure that growing ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ remains challenging and fun. (You figure out what that last sentence meant!  😁)

And remember, "it's always 4:20 somewhere!"

Heaux Heaux Heaux - Holiday Specials

The ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Team has a big pile of goodies for you under the tree! Based from our alternate shops at the 2017 RFL Christmas Breedables Expo as well as ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Central, we're bringing you lots of holiday cheer!


First... Our annual One-Of-A-Kind (OOAK) LE, RFL STAR OF WONDER. These large plants are 6.0 Superweed out of the box and feature an amazing "Royal Beauty" FX. The highest bid takes all 24 seeds that will ever be released, along with bonus gifts worth over L$4000 if purchased separately.

We're asking for a minimum bid of L$10,000 on this OOAK, with 100% of the proceeds going to RFL. Check out displays at our Expo locations and follow the Growers & Breeders Group for more details on this outstanding opportunity to get a unique strain and help out Relay For Life!

We are also delighted to introduce our second holiday package -- HOLIDAY NUGZ. These little jewels are fun-sized, medium potency, medium growth rate outdoor plants with RED, GREEN, and BLUE foliage. These plants not only expand the WeeDable mini-plant series but also expand the "Radz" FX set as well!

"But wait, there's more..."

The ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Team also brings you a very special Special Edition (SE) set, and it's a real "Sneaky Santa!"  Enjoy  a visit from the JOLLY ST NICK who stashes GIFTS GALORE under the tree, and then unwrap 'em to find WISHES COME TRUE!
Generation 1 plants are JOLLY ST NICK, featuring a vintage Santa graphic. Santa leaves GIFTS GALORE in the 2nd generation, and WISHES COME TRUE in the 3rd generation. Like our other SEs, each generation has a chance of producing an alternate foliage in its offspring. But because Santa Claus is coming to town, these plants have a 100% chance of throwing the next foliage in the set!

All three varieties are medium potency, very fast growing outdoor plants featuring White Twinklies FX. And yes, Virginia, that FX is an extension of last year's Twinklies FX set!

Growers Notes (Caution! Technical information ahead!)
  • Previous SE sets (Mandala and Star Trek) present a 1-in-25 (4%) chance of throwing an alternate foliage when seeds or bricks are germinated. These are our customary SE odds and are built into every ovule, which makes it possible (since Star Trek) to update SE plants using the HUD 4.2017. In order to make every succeeding generation show alternate foliages, Sneaky Santa seeds have a one-off (4.19.904m) ovule. (You can verify this by the usual Edit > Content > Ovule Properties method.)
  • Plants with the 4.19.904m ovule will always produce offspring that follow the SE sequence, JOLLY ST NICK > GIFTS GALORE > WISHES COME TRUE. The sequence repeats beginning at generation 4.
  • Males are capable of passing the specific foliage they display and are also able to pass the White Twinklies FX. This is probably the best strategy for working the FX into other breeding lines.
  • Mutations such as dwarf, giant, superweed, or ultra will be lost in the next generation unless the grower chooses one of two paths. First, the SE Lock may be used to remove the SE system and lock in the parent's foliage forever. Or you may devise a plan based on the following information...
  • The standard upgrade ovule presents 4% rather than 100% odds of throwing an SE foliage. Upgrading Sneaky Santa plants using the HUD 4.2017 in CSLUT mode will replace the 4.19.904m ovule with a regular 4.19.904 ovule. Although the offspring will still have SE capabilities, the odds of getting an alternate foliage are greatly reduced, and mutation stats will be passed as usual.

Notes for Secondary Market Buyers:
  • A "pure" Sneaky Santa plant will show 4.19.904SE in the plant's stats after germination. It will also contain a 4.19.904m ovule. The odds of the offspring following the alternate foliage sequence are 100%.
  • A Sneaky Santa plant that has been updated with a standard ovule will show 4.19.904SE in the plant's stats, but the ovule inside will be 4.19.904. The odds of the offspring having an alternate foliage are 4%, the regular mutation rate.
  • A Sneaky Santa plant that has been "SE Locked" will show 4.19.904 in the plant's stats. It may have a 4.19.904m ovule or a 4.19.904 ovule (if it's been updated), but the SE system has been removed. The odds of the offspring having an alternate foliage are zero.

A Busy Month!

The Matrix w/Green Fog FX
October & November were busy at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Central! Starting on October 18, five new LEs were released in 31 days!

The Matrix came first. Steaming with Green Fog FX and the "falling numbers" foliage, this "large-ish" medium growth rate, medium potency indoor/outdoor strain featured a Gen 1 sound bite (Morpheus' classic red or blue pill quote from the movie) and came packaged in a "red pill."

Devil Weed w/Brimstoned FX

Sweet Leaf w/Freakified FX
Next up was a pair of medium-sized, fast-growing, high potency Halloween LEs: Devil Weed, our Halloweed strain with Brimstoned FX, and Sweet Leaf, our Day-of-the-Dead sugar skull variety with Freakified FX (a multicolored leaf). These were delivered as four seed packs (two seeds of each type).

Zom Bee w/Baby Beez FX 

As an extra "treat" for Halloween, the ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ
team released Zom Bee. Medium potency, very fast growing outoor plants, these little boogers featured "art by Gleaux" for both the foliage and "Baby Beez" FX.

Anonymous w/Gunpowder FX
Finally, to celebrate Guy Fawkes' Day and help us "remember, remember the fifth of November, the gunpowder treason & plot," came Anonymous, a medium potency, medium growth rate monster with flashing Gunpowder FX and a Gen 1 sound bite. Released at Westem's Patron Auction with "bonus bags" for winning bidders!

Whew! That's a lot of crazy cool LEs coming fast! And the holiday season is just beginning! And remember, we're running a "grower design contest," so you may have a chance to design an LE! Check out the Buzz for details -- pick up a copy at any of the newpaper machines at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Central!

13 October, 2017


HURRICANE LE has CAT 5 FX and is the newest V9.2017 with all the bells and whistles to love! It also has a sound byte that is inheritable to remind us that this HURRICANE is going to take alot of time to get right...and it has an added new "Overcast" TINT: 
We managed to raise (with the amazing support of our generous family of grower's support) $100,000.00 LINDENS!! That's around $400 USD...WOW
That will make a difference somewhere for a families in need.

Version 4.19.904 has been released!

Version 4.19.904 is now available in all fourteen Standard Varieties on sale at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Central! Both regular four-seed and 24-seed bulk packs have been updated.

A new HUD 4.2017 update (version 4.20170930) is being "pushed" to everyone who wears an older HUD 4.2017 and is also available in the free HUD vendor at the store. Remember, the HUD 4.2017 functions like a wearable Update Transmogrifier, so you can begin updating your existing grows.

The key features of Version 4.19.904 are:

  1. Some new hovertext stats features, notably the use of gender symbols (  and ♂ ) and the inclusion of the FX name in the visible hovertext;
  2. An AutoPause option to set plants so they will pause themselves at the last growth interval before they flower, which should make for fewer heartbreaks when you're growing plants to sell at auction or in pOT pLOT; and,
  3. A "PassGroup" feature that gives you the option to have female plants pass their HUD Group assignment number on to their offspring.
At this time, AutoPause and PassGroup options are accessed only through the Advanced Menu of the latest HUD. As a side note, both of these new features were suggested by growers. The ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™  Team listens!

Again, it's easy to update your plants to the newest version. Just grab a copy of the latest HUD -- either from a box of new Standard Seeds, from the free HUD vendor, or through the update process from your old HUD 4.2017 -- click the HUD Menu and switch the CSLUT On. If your plants are are already set up with "HUD On," you can use the HUD's Advanced > Update button to perform a bulk update, or you can click each plant and use the plant's Advanced > Update button!

ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ ŞųɱɱȇƦ Ḉŭᵽ Ḉőɱᵽȇţįţįőņ!

The ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Team is proud to announce the First Annual ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ ŞųɱɱȇƦ Ḉŭᵽ Ḉőɱᵽȇţįţįőņ! This event will promote creativity, advanced breeding strategies, and help inject a little excitement into what is usually a "slow" time in Second Life, and get us all through the SL "Summertime Blues."

Working from a common basic LE, breeders will compete for prizes (and bragging rights) in several categories:
  1. The MAD MAX award for the highest height, potency, and growth rate,
  2. MINI MED for the smallest weighted size,
  3. CHRONIC CRUSH for the highest potency,
  4. SPEEDY GONZALES for the fastest-growing hybrid, and
  5. DRIVEN SNOW for the highest generation achieved with statistically pure plants.

A special ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ ŞųɱɱȇƦ Ḉŭᵽ LE, CHARLOTTES WEB, will be released for a limited time. The basic CHARLOTTES WEB plant is very low potency, slow growing, and relatively small. The odds of all the usual mutations (superweed, ultra, bright, and foliage inheritance) are the same as all other 4.19.903 ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ plants.

Competitive breeding will focus on developing this LE to achieve one of the category goals listed above. During the contest period, competitors may hybridize or inbreed their ŞųɱɱȇƦ Ḉŭᵽ LEs in any way they choose.

The competition will run from 7 July to 15 August. Entries will be accepted no later than 7 PM SLT on 15 August. The location and method for submitting entries will be announced in the ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Growers and Breeders Group approximately one week before the competition closes.

One entry will be accepted per contestant. The category of competition must be declared by the contestant. For example, if a plant is entered in the "Chronic Crush" category, it cannot be considered for "Mad Max," "Speedy Gonzales," or another category regardless of how it might place compared to declared entries in those categories.

Entries must display only the ŞųɱɱȇƦ Ḉŭᵽ LE foliage and FX, and inspection of the entry's parents must show no other foliage and FX but those from the original ŞųɱɱȇƦ Ḉŭᵽ LE. [In other words, plan your last few generations around "cleaning up" the foliage and FX!]

At the end of the contest period, competitors will submit one plant, male or female, paused between 90-99% maturity. [Some extremely fast growing entries in the "Speedy Gonzales" and "Mad Max" categories may need to be grown without food for the last statistical growth period to do this. For example, a plant with 20% growth rate would have to be removed from food at 80% maturity and grown at one percent default growth rate for about ten cycles to put it between 90-99%.]

The plant's stats will be used to determine its score. For Mini Med and Mad Max categories, the height and width of the plant will be averaged together to determine the overall size score. For Driven Snow, the plant with the highest generation and all stats (glow, brightness, height and width, potency, and growth rate) closest to the original wins.

Have fun!

Those "pretty much worthless" shake bricks are now worth L$ to you with the ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ SHAKEDOWN REBATE PROGRAM! That's right - we'll be awarding L$10 credit for every eligible shake brick you turn in during the SHAKEDOWN!

Not every shake brick is eligible for the rebate, so read carefully! There are four basic rules:

  1. The Shake Bricks have to come from a 4.19.902 or higher ovule. Bricks from recent version males that have timed out are fine.
  2. Older version males will produce the right shake brick if you update them with a 4.19.903b Update Transmogrifier before they time out. There's no need to run a Bridge. Just update the older male directly, and make sure it's carrying the 4.19.903b ovule.
  3. Old bricks really are worthless. The quick way to check is to right-click on the brick, go to "Edit" and then to "Contents." If you see a script (CSL SHAKE) inside the brick, it's not eligible for the rebate.
  4. The bricks must come from plants that you owned when they timed out. There is no aftermarket for old shake. Of course, you can buy old males from other growers, update them to the 4.19.903 ovule, and grow them until they time out.

To cash in your shake bricks, find the ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Shakedown Scales beside BiggBudd's counter at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Central. Place your brick on the top of the scales, and click the "Weigh" button at the base of the scales. Messages in local chat will tell you if the brick is eligible or not.

You can only weigh one brick at a time. If it's accepted by the system, your cash-out total will increase by L$10 and the hovertext over the scales will turn yellow. You can then delete the brick. (Of course, if the brick is rejected, you can delete it, too.) Then you can weigh another brick.

When you're done weighing your bricks, click the "Cash Out" button to receive your Gift Card in that amount. The system awards only up to L$100 Gift Cards, so if you weigh ten bricks, the scales will automatically give you the L$100 Gift Card! You can accumulate as many Gift Cards as you have time and shake to turn in.

A couple of final notes. When the Shakedown Scales are in use, the hovertext will turn yellow. If you click the scales while another person is weighing bricks, the scales will award that person what they're due. (Likewise, if someone forgets to cash out and the scales are showing red text, the next user to click them will reset the scales and send that person their Gift Card.)

Also, the maximum individual Gift Card the scales will give out is L$100. We do not plan to award larger Gift Cards through the Rebate Program, so please don't ask.

We hope this is a fun (and profitable) way for you to clear out accumulated shake bricks and old males from your inventory. So SHAKE YOUR BRICKS!


pOT pLOTs, Auctions, and the ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Advertising & Auctions Group provide an opportunity to re-sell plants and to interact with other Growers & Breeders. The ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Team provides this service at nominal cost, because we believe a healthy aftermarket and vibrant community help our business. We do not make much money from these activities, so it is essential that they enhance our operation and do not detract from it.

There has been some confusion lately about what is and is not acceptable for sale in pOT pLOTs or Auctions at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™  Central. The ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Team has spent a lot of time this week reviewing our expectations and rules to make sure they are clear and consistent.

We have made some changes in the "Auctions" page on this website. Additionally, there is a new "SELLING AT ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ AUCTIONS & pOT pLOTs" page that has specific rules for pOT pLOT pricing and version updates. These are not suggestions or guidelines; these are rules.

In a nutshell, the update requirements are:

  1. Female plants and seed bricks must show Version 4 or higher in their stats and must  be updated to Version 4.19.903b or higher.
  2. "Bridge" ovules are unacceptable.
  3. Male plants must show Version 3.02 or higher in their stats and must have a 4.19.903b ovule.
  4. Version 1 or 2 plants are not acceptable.
  5. Unopened "vintage" boxes of Version 2.11c or higher seeds are allowed for sale at Auctions, but only Version 4 or highere seed packs are permitted on pOT pLOTs..
  6. Boxed plants are not acceptable.

The left ones think I'm right,
The right ones think I'm wrong
And many people look my way

And in my quiet reflection I wonder why
Magic mirror won't you tell me please
Do I see myself in anyone I meet?
Magic mirror if we only could
Try to see ourselves as others would

Xarabeth's Experience as Amazon Warrior & CannabiSL in RP :)

Hello everyone;
I am Xarabethe, a newcomer to cannabis growing and CannabiSL. I primarily role-play as an Amazon Warrior here in Second Life, and recently our tribe took up growing cannabis as a way to enhance our roleplay experience, bring more fun to our lands, and meet new friends. It has been an amazing first few months, and Gleaux asked me to share our experience here on the blog. It’s a pleasure to do so; the CannabiSL community has been overwhelming in their support of our tribe’s venture, and we look forward to being a part of the group for years to come.

Before we get too far along with this story, let me tell you a bit about us and the lands we call home. Starhaven is one of five medieval-themed roleplay sims that comprise The Havens, which has been around for nearly a decade. We are a tribe of Amazons warriors, who protect the Havens from enemies and serve our Queen, whose palace lies in Moonhaven. The Amazons train in combat of course, but we also have fun with the everyday tasks that make role-play fun: hunting, gathering, crafting, and of course: farming. We in The Havens love sharing our lands with visitors, and several CannabiSL growers have already come by to see us. There is a landmark to our visitor hub at the end of this story…please feel free to drop by and say hello.

Like most roleplayers, we are always looking for ways to add more “fun” to our experience, and one day our attention became focused on a high plateau on the extreme western edge of our sim. This hilltop had stood empty for quite some time, but its unique character really cried out for some creative energy. We took a look at our various resources, and realized that we were lacking a dedicated farming area, and that a few more necessary elements of Amazon culture could also reside on that high piece of ground.

It was about this time that one of the Havens’ residents suggested we try growing cannabis; she had been growing at her home for a while, and thought it would be a fun way to increase activity in a near-deserted area of Starhaven, and also open up some roleplay trade opportunities between the sims. After the initial chuckles and bad jokes subsided, we realized that it was quite reasonable to believe that a tribe of primitive warriors certainly would have taken advantage of the natural resources available, and cultivated cannabis and hemp for various uses. Our tribal Healer, sister Atli, conducted some research and found that cannabis was indeed widely used in ancient times. Further, sister Sigrun determined that our garden should be named for the Greek goddess of the harvest, and thus Demeter Ridge was born.

We needed more than just cannabis for Demeter Ridge, though: we placed a vegetable garden in the centre of the plot, and sister Atli had the brilliant idea to add a “sweat lodge” near the extreme western edge. The sisters use this simple hut for spiritual revitalization…whilst enjoying relaxing steam from the hot coals enhanced with the aroma of their latest harvest. Of course, we also added a statue representing the goddess for whom Demeter Ridge is named; click on the statue and learn about both Demeter and how cannabis was used in ancient times.

Once the concept and basic design for Demeter Ridge was in place, we needed to decide which cannabis varieties to grow. Since Starhaven’s theme is medieval, we had to forego some of the stunningly beautiful graphic Limited Edition designs in favor of the “natural,” but still very colorful older LEs (Limited Editions). Indoor varieties were out of the question, as there was no electricity for lights in those days. One exception to this philosophy was Mandala, whose beautiful foliage and awesome mutation potential grabbed - and has held - our attention. Another was Andromeda: not only is it stunningly beautiful, but any plant named after a character in Greek mythology just seemed to be a natural fit for Demeter Ridge.

After growing a generation or two of base standard varieties (Panama Red and Purple Haze in this case) to get comfortable with the harvesting and planting processes, we selected Royal Caramel as our first LE to grow – thanks to some great advice from a prominent CannabiSL grower. Our mentor explained how to breed a pure LE male with base (Standard) plants to produce more of the LE foliage variety, and we embraced this idea with enthusiasm. That practice continues today, and we are hoping to help revitalize interest in some of the “heirloom” varieties that still carry their own unique charm.

Needless to say, once we started growing cannabis on the ridge, interest in that area skyrocketed, as residents from across the Havens made the journey up the hill to see what the crazy Amazons were growing now.

Other sims within the Havens have started their own cannabis farms, and the Amazons regularly trade with and support growers in those lands. In the future, we hope to help establish gardens in each of five sims, featuring varieties which reflect the unique character and personality of that particular land. In Starhaven, we are hoping to experiment a bit with placing different effects on some of the “heirloom” varieties, and focus our energy on growing dwarves and giants of our favorite strains.

We are also hoping to create notecards that describe the role-play therapeutic effects and various uses of the varieties of cannabis we grow…again, in hope of enhancing the roleplay experience in The Havens.

In conclusion, I would like to say thank you to all of the wonderful members of the CannabiSL community who have helped make this such a fun and rewarding experience. I have chatted with many of your personally about how much you have meant to us, and please know that my words came from the heart. It has been an amazing first few months, and we hope that some great times lay down the road.

Webster's dictionary says something that is continuous and the same throughout and that is often thought of as a series of elements or values which differ by only tiny amounts <"light" and "dark" stand at opposite ends of a continuum>
We now have a choice of 9 slightly different choices for ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ plants!
  • Bright ranges from 0.0 to 1.0, where any value 0.5 or higher displays as full bright.
  • Glow ranges from 1% to 4% and represents additional brightness levels

  • Basic Inheritance
    Offspring values for potency, growth rate, lighting, width and height, brightness, and glow are calculated by averaging the parents' (male and female) values for each trait. These calculated genetic values can be modified by odds-based mutations. The foliage and effect of the offspring plant are odds-based.
    When a seed is germinated, certain characteristics and traits are randomly calculated, and new values may be substituted for those determined by basic inheritance. This introduces variability in the offspring. The most basic of these is the plant's gender; for Version 4.19.9 and higher plants, the odds of getting a male are one in 12 (8.5%).  Older versions have one in 8 odds (12.5%) of getting males.

    Having SO MUCH phun with the newest Special Editions (SEs), and the excitement I still feel after all these 5 years, it is a true love affair and I am happy we seem to be meeting your expectations as well,  finding that PHUN THRILL you first had too now months & years later.

    So here is my little story I wanted to share...before I bred her and lost stats!!!
    I had a Gen 1 Purple Haze that happens sometimes (rarely now with new update) It was a Mandala x Mandala and so it was a lovely purple haze with Rainbow Burst FX...so I bred it out to a Hendrix Haze & WOW, what an amazing FX for that foliage! It was so outstanding and the little purple haze was a 2 seeder so I got another 2-seeder and a 1-seeder AND the Hendrix Haze foliage passed one of them!!! OK...so I decided I would just go with that as a project & 3rd gen I got 2 more 2-seeders and one retained the purple haze foliage but here is where I thought I was astounded...after six generation, the Hendrix Hazes threw a PARVATI...which honestly at first I was sort of bummed out (wanting to continue my project) but SOON I realized
    that my little Gen.1 Standard Purple Haze that we all moan and groan over 
    had turned into a brilliant

    MANDALA! A new series & a new way to get it!

    The ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Team went to the Far East to bring back the first Limited Edition Set of 2017, MANDALA. This low potency, slow growing outdoor beauty is medium large, 2.25 meters tall, with an amazing meditative foliage and a hypnotic Rainbow Burst FX.

    But that's not all. MANDALA is the debut of a new breeding twist, Special Edition Foliage Mutations. It isn't a single LE; it's a set! But you have to work to get it...

    MANDALA seeds normally display the MANDALA foliage but are capable of throwing four other mutant foliages: GANESHA, PARVATI, SHIVA, and CHAKRAS. The sequence cycles over 16 generations with the mutants appearing about twice as often as dwarf or giant plants (or half as often as males).

    The potency, growth rate, and size stats increase through the set, too. GANESHA is medium potency and growth rate and honors the Hindu patron of arts and sciences; PARVATI is high, fast, and represents love and devotion (although from the number of arms she's showing, she might be a little perturbed); SHIVA is very high and very fast just like the Lord of Bhang; and, CHAKRAS is extreme growing superweed that will take your consciousness to new heights (a huge 4.5 meters, to be exact)! All retain the amazing Rainbow Burst FX (unless you breed something else in ;-)

    To get the whole set, you'll need a supply of MANDALA seeds, time, luck, and a little help from your friends.  :-)

    For the first 4 generations, there's a 1-in-25 chance of GANESHA being thrown, followed by PARVATI in generations 5-8, SHIVA in generations 9-12, and CHAKRA in generations 12-16. The cycle then repeats for the next 16 generations and so on.  And yes, GANESHAPARVATISHIVA, and CHAKRAS are capable of throwing other mutants, but a mutant can never throw another MANDALA.

    As with many other ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ features, Special Edition Foliage Mutations were suggested by a Grower! The  ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Team takes your ideas seriously, and we remain committed to making growing and breeding ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ in Second Life fun, challenging, and rewarding! Happy  Growing!

    The Fine Print...

    Special Edition seeds will be released periodically, designated by a version number with the "SE" suffix. The numeric portion of the version number will match our latest regular release, and all other functions will be the same. The number of alternate foliages, the number of generations in the cycle, and the odds may differ.

    SE capabilities are passed by a special "SE" ovule, so breeding lines are maternal. SE plants will lose their special mutation capabilities if they are upgraded. This means that plants with the "base" foliage should not be updated, while plants with any of the special foliages can be updated to a non-SE ovule to "lock in" the unique foliage and prevent further mutations.
