Phenotype

Noun | ˈfē-nə-ˌtīp

The visible characteristics or traits of a plant, such as the color of the leaves, trichome density, flower structure, stem thickness, and length between nodes. The cultivation environment, inputs provided, and genotype of the particular cultivar influence the phenotype of a plant. Selective cannabis breeding is often referred to as “pheno hunting,” as growers seek out strains that display desired physical characteristics.
