Yes, but here is my question - Do I now have the original Elegans that 
Great Expectations sported from?  If by some chance I could get a 
plant of THE original plant, would that plant and my plant be the 
same.  What's the difference if someone that propagated THE original 
Elegans and I had a copy of that plant via asexual propagation and 
someone propagated GE and then along the line the L2 layer, the 
mutated layer, was replaced by the original genome to give back an 
Elegans plant.
