Default Good enough to be a mother?

I wanted to choose this plant as a mom and was wondering if it was a good choice based on the following factors if significant at all:

I've been veg for at least 5-6 weeks and it isn't even a 1.5ft. I guess it is a short squatted plant and I didn't know if the size had any significance when choosing a mom. It seemed to have peaked in height. I have it in a 3gal bucket and will put it in a 5gal.

It sure looks like a nice plant but you need to think about what's going to change when you put it into 12/12 and how she flowers.

Some plants look great in veg but when they start flowering they do loads of weird things.

I have only ever decided on whether or not to keep a plant as a mother after I have harvested.

Things to take into consideration are

Yield, Resistence to disease, flowering time, flavour etc etc..

Some people are different I suppose..


Be Well,

That makes sense. I will wait till I flower a cutting then decide; running out of room in my veg space tho

i would take two cuttings and flower the seed plant.
that way you have more space in the veg room
and have a couple of back-ups just in case.

if you have room and dont mind fairly high plant numbers take two cuts off all
of them just in case theres a hidden gem among 'em.
