<< That the thriving plant could have been 
 forced with fertilizers to become big too quick and was in fact a young 
 plant.   What are others thoughts on this subject.   >>

That is exactly what some greenhouses and nurseries do to make a quick sale. 
It makes the plant weak and soft. Therefore it takes some time to recuperate, 
and then your summer is almost gone and you have to wait until next year for 
normal growth.
