Default Tiny seeds,do they always grow into runts???

I've received tiny seeds before and they don't seem to do as well or grow into runts.
1\3-1\4 the size of others.

Before I waste time,soil,and space,has anyone else had poorer results with tiny seeds?

I’ve had seeds of different sizes from the same cross and the growth results have been similar. Sometimes the sprouts of small seeds will have smaller cotyledons but once they start putting out true leaves their growth is similar.

I once found a seed that looked like a miniature version, I mean it was the perfect shape, had tiger stripes and everything but it was about a fourth the size of the normal ones. I was skeptical if it would even grow. It sprouted, had small cotyledons but once it got going it looked just like the other plants.

Chimera's Highland Mexican x Blueberry are the smallest seeds I've ever personally seen. They're also aproximately 10 years old I believe. I just planted 5 of them right into soil and 4 of them succefully sprouted in 36 hours. I have 15 more of them in storage.

Case in point - Kanga's 6-7 meter tall thai plants came from seeds equal or smaller than herijuana which are teeny tiny seeds.

Yeah size don't really matter unless maybe you got a pack of Shark Shock with them big ass seeds and one was the size of an Early Queen seed I may question it but I would still give it a chance it could be the best plant in the pack.

Yes the tiny seed germ and broke through soil at least 8 hours before bigger seeds.It's a different pheno,nodes spacing is much tighter.
I topped at node 3 but I should have topped at node 5 or 7.I'll top again on node 6 to help spread out the crowded leaves.
