Proper amount of seeds for pheno hunt? How much is too much?

Proper amount of seeds for pheno hunt? How much is too much?
What number would render the search successful?

As we all know growing and getting the most out of every plant is very important these days, especially with unnecessary regulations against plant count. And the vast amount of new seed companies and new marijuana ventures, making finding the best pheno giving you a greater success rate.

to me the most important traits are Smell Effect and Potency, yield isn't a priority

how many seeds would you need to pop to find the pheno you are looking for? For any strain. Not just stable ones where the pheno is common.

How much is too much?

And when would be adding more to that number be unnecesary?

thanks for your opinions and i hope this thread can be educational
please lets keep this thread positive, Thank you

There's no such thing as too much. Do as many as you can.

10 pack should have what's advertised if your running 40 seeds and can't find the smell and taste your after (blueberry) then your looking in the wrong place

More numbers, more chance of seeing recessive traits pop up.

That being said, it can be hard to really judge individual phenos when you are working with 100's of plants at a time.

Slower, but possible more thorough. To grow more successive smaller batchs over time. Keeping clones, and running them again along side the next batch.

You may need to run a clone/pheno 3 or 4x before you dial it in, and really know it well.

Some traits are easier to select than others. You could look at 100 phenos and pick out for bag appeal or flower shape. Choosing for flavor or high though, that is quite the process multiplied by 100s of phenos you might miss a gem or two.

My opinion is 10 for feminized and 30 for regulars, 5 and 20 are not enough, only my opinion!

Yeah, but I mean, you are a self labelled seed whore Maybe not the best person to ask about "how many seeds" Is like asking cookie monster if he has enough cookies. No. No he doesn't.

Without considering luck at all, the more the merrier. I will say my favorite keeper of all time came from a 10 pack though. You could have one seed and have it be absurdly stable and goregous. Ive had that happen too.
