I have come up with a half-baked plan to start collecting trait dominance data. I will begin with my own plants that I am growing right now. It isn’t complicated. I’ll simply make notes about each strain I am growing based on as many observable traits as I can (and perhaps some cannabinoid testing). I’ll then breed F1 crosses, grow them out and observe which traits show up at F1.
Observable traits will be limited to common things like; leaf shape/colour, branching/structure, flowering time, smells/flavours, budding sites/density, height, etc. I will be set up to test CBD so that data will also be collected.
My question is (and I know I have asked before); is there already a source of cannabis trait dominance data “out there”?
If not, then it seems like something a community could build very quickly and more accurately than any individual. A database could be set up to track the data and make it available to community breeders.
Just brainstorming here. I’ll be collecting my own data, but I see much greater potential if many others are involved
