Its true Alberto, My bosses treated all mutations like gold, kept them
secret like spy documents & had no concerns about the environment, spreading
problems, or anything else, only $$$$ mattered. They certainly weren't the
only ones doing it. There were many & a number of other mutations
were collected too. Josh is right, they never spread from one to another,
only reproduction was successful.

Although i understand what Jim says about chemicals or stress being the
causes, which i explained my self, but I have to ask, if chemical damage &
stress was the only cause, how did we reproduce several thousand super
healthy plants, perfect replicas from cutting & they kept the trait for
decades until this day ? What an interesting mistery....

Well thanks every one !
