RE: CULT: Stalking calibre


Show stalks generally refer to stalks that will "show" well.  Meaning they
are well branched, both in quantity and in the proper placement.  You need
clean foliage and stalk with nice bud count opening in the proper sequence.
You would like for said stalk to be fairly straight, not snaky or curved as
it reaches for the light.  For me a show stalk on a TB is a tall straight
stalk with candelabra branching and two flowers open.

Subject: [iris] CULT: Stalking calibre

I was watching CSI the other night.  They cut down a tree and extracted a
bunch of different bullet sizes from it.

I was admiring what appear to be very nice strong stalks forming on Jesse's
Song.

Many descriptions make reference to 'show stalks', which always makes me
wonder what that means.

I wonder if you could rate a stalk with a calibre the way they do with
bullets.  Seems to me like you can get one of those little lettering kits at
Office Depot for 2 bucks that has the compass, and the caliper, and some
lettering templates, etc.  You could measure the width of the stalk with the
caliper and the ruler that is also in the kit and have a 50 mm/ calibre
stalk.....
for example.

but what do I know..
