Here's a Nemesis that taught me a valuable lesson.
The seed barely popped, the seedling looked horrible, and I thought it would just die. After a couple weeks, I realized the problem was, I planted it in a flimsy cup. Don't use those, they're quite harmful. The plant recovered when I transplanted it, but since it missed a few weeks of development, it never got big (outdoor).
Despite that, it made an almost continuous stalk of bud, right down to the soil. As it matured, it purpled instead of yellowing. I haven't tried it yet, but, visually, it's some of the most attractive stuff.
