In the old days we saw it more often because we were crossing pure Sativas with pure Indicas.
This makes sense to me. Thanks Kanga.

Look at a chart that has several characteristics that are being searched for a personal "Holy Grail".

Every aspect that is being scrutinized will exponentially increase the amount of "phenotypes" that will be observed.

I don't wanna discourage anybody from making seeds either. I wanna emphasize the amount of variation a person should realistically expect from a batch of seeds.
