Phenotype: petite structures
Petite is a true-breeding Fast Plants stock that is homozygous recessive for a gene that causes an overall reduced size of all plant parts in proportion to height, giving them a petite appearance in comparison to Standard Fast Plants stock. Additionally, this stock’s leaves are more intensely dark green than Standard stock. Petite plants are capable of growing in small substrate volumes.
