Altering Leaf Shape with Genetics

  1. Is it possible? I've seen some marijuana plants that by the leaves you wouldn't be able to tell it was marijuana. Are there any existing strains like this? Could it be done?

    I would kind of like a bonzai mom as a center piece for my coffee table. :smoke:
     
  2. some kid at jobcorp told me about some strain called "ducksfoot" he supposedly grew. i dont believe the kid cuz he was annoying, cocky, a feen and incredibly filthy and dishonest. im glad he got beat up and terminated
     
  3. ducksfoot is real.

    look up Wallyduck, an Australian seed company. he works a lot with it, and has outcrossed it to a lot of different strains, to ideally find plants that exhibit the traits of the other strain, but with the odd, not as noticeable leaf pattern
     
  4. WTF this have to do with the OP's question? :rolleyes: And yes, Ducksfoot is a real strain. I know a few breeders have worked with Ducksfoot before. I believe Ducksfoot was part of the cross of Tom Hill's famous 10 lb yielding plant which was all over the internet a few yrs ago.

    There are very few which do not resemble cannabis in one way or another. Fet was working with a strain called Dizzy which had looked nothing like cannabis, however I have never seen anything come of it. I am not sure of the exact strain(s) used, only that a strain of Australian wild hemp was used which is what gave it this odd appearance.

    he said the strain got that name cuz the leaves looked like the foot of a duck
     
  6. which is true, that is how it gained it's given name. Dizzy was even more unique b/c it grew more like a tree, and had odd shaped leaves, it did not have the slightest appearence resembling cannabis, however I think there were potency issues with it..

  8. that plant does seem to have wierd leaves, but i have a question, is this for an outdoor grow? if so are you planning to have its leaves wierd shaped so ppl walking by wont see it, or those pesky chopper wont? the reason i ask this is if your planting it where ppl are walking by well its just not in a good place, but if you want the leaves to look diff so a chopper doesnt see it from the sky this might work well in veg season, but when they flower, its pretty easy to spot long ripe buds from a chopper.
    basically what im saying is if your planting it outside you really need to find a good place that NO ONE will see or find it, regardless of what the leaves look like it still makes buds and smells , i spent 3 summers looking for a spot b4 i actually found one.
    now if you want it to not look like weed so your room mate or mom or wife dont know what it is , thats just ballsy ;)
