OK so I'm still reading through this article, and it's raising some questions in my head about not just the Genetics of a given type, but the environment, as I'm wondering if maybe the conditions of the plant, changes how the plant displays itself?
For example; If I get some true Afghani seeds, and I grow some of them outside, some of them in a Greenhouse, some in a warm tent, and then, grow some in a tent where the temperature stays cooler and very dry, would I then have multiple different variations on that strain? Maybe it's just displaying characteristics that are directly related to environment ?
I've personally seen differences in Motor Breath that had been grown indoor, in a tent, and then the same batch of clones, grown outdoor, which have a MUCH nicer smell and flavor.
Cannabis is a living thing, and it may be responding to conditions; Not unlike a Catfish would do, as a species such as a Piraiba; One of the largest species of Catfish, if it's living in a river that it has to hunt a lot for the food it catches, it's possible it's going to be a lot smaller than one grown in a massive pond where it's given food to eat, and therefore exerts itself less getting food, allowing it to grow into man eating sizes easier. The temperature can change those Catfish as well, as it's pretty well understood that Catfish in the South of the US, "seem" to get larger than those in Northern States where we have Winters, but at the same time, Catfish in Northern States with a Winter Season, also tend to live longer.
Maybe Cannabis plants display these traits as well? Based on Conditions ?
