Maximum calyces fresh weight per plant was obtained from plants sown on 6th May, while the fresh weight decreased with the delay in sowing time and minimum fresh calyces weight per plant was produced by the plants sown on 25th June.
The dry weights followed a similar pattern like calyces fresh weight.
The calyces in these colonies were not sexually mature.
This material (E944-946; 948-953; 2132, 2133, and unregistered specimens in the BANZARE collection) consists of 10 preserved (wet) colonies, 9 whole mounts (slides) of colonies, and 31 slides of sectioned calyces.

It is possible, however, that contamination of some of the cannister specimens affected the fragrance determinations: many of the calyces were exceptionally skunky in odor and the sticky exudate from their trichomes clung to fingers.
