How much better is a discovered pheno keeper is versus the general population? More frost, thc, etc. Also, are most comercial weed grown from these holy grail genetics? Can a tiny grower grow weed like this without obtaining a pheno? Seems like if I only crack seeds the result is less than stellar if I compare it to some pheno that is 1/1000.Guys - pheno hunting seeds is not as easy as the above posts are making it seem.
You need a lot of space and time and equipment. You also need to be anal-retentive in your organization, cleaning, and labeling.
You cannot be guaranteed a keeper out of even 100 seeds. If a particular cross has a genotype variation of 64 possible phenotypes (I believe that’s the true #), you would have to pop at least one factor of 64 (128 seeds) to hopefully get a female example of as many phenotypes as possible. Some are dominant, it’s the rare ones that we are putting in the effort for. One pheno hunt took 2 of my rooms five months to complete (seeds - clones - flower cycle - cull males - harvest - clone the favorite mother - 24 plant SOG)
The ultimate I guess would have enough room to house like 6 mothers of choice pheno hunted strains and live with those or trade for other premo genes.
I just don't know how much better one of these pheno are. Thx
