well a polyploid is a member of a species which has had its chromosomes doubled from the normal state. Therefore with cannabis, a polyploid would normally have 4 sets. Which would make it a tetraploid. These occur in nature only half as often as a triploid would, but are quicker to create in a lab as that only requires one generation where as a triploid in that setting would require 2 generations.
For cannabis, yes you are absolutely correct that triploids are rare in nature. There are plenty of other species of plant for whom the state is the normal though. For those species of course a polyploid would posses 6 sets of chromosomes.

Anyways, neat plants, to say the least.

I've never seen a pentaploid before seeing that pic GMT. Thanks for it and the insights you've provided about "polyploid" plants.

I think that they may very well increase overall yields but I cant say for sure about any other aspect of the plant. Time will tell.

most triploids are only able to reproduce asexually.
Fruit trees, seedless watermelons etc.

as far as i know cannabis is a diploid but has an autoploid sex chromosome which would explain the intersex traits of the plant .

Default tripod plants

Tripods can be formal, made to a Classic design, or they can be made from more natural-looking rustic poles. The former are better where they are still partly on show when the climber is in full growth. The latter, in spite of their informal charm, are more suitable for carrying heavy, rampant climbers that will eventually cover them completely. More formal designs can be bought complete, ready to be installed in the garden, but for a more satisfying result, try making one for yourself. A rustic-pole tripod is much more basic, and can easily be constructed by most gardeners.

Are you referring to a plant with three sets of branches or that have a extra leaf when sprouting?
They were all from fem seed packs so that might help support asexual theory or has it been proven?
