A Good Sport


Variegation is a common mutation or “sport” among cannabis and can create a beautiful plant.

Half of each leaflet grows yellow or white and will often affect every leaf.

However, this trait is usually not ideal for commercial production. Extremely variegated plants may result in deformed leaves, and they tend to yield less than their fully green neighbors.

This can make for a unique gardening experience for home growers, but commercial growers should avoid selecting plants with this trait for propagation on a large scale.
