can short stature be dominant in one strain and recessive in another?

is it indica,sativa,ruderalis dependent?

i would have to say yes ive been worrking on a strain that likes to be grown in tents and small pots as well does not get bigger then 3 feet at the most. right now i am working with a f6 . if you where to plant 10seeds 6 would be short type that i am talking about and the other four would be over 3 feet and would have probs with small pots. when i breed my strain i used a very tall male as well as a super short male.. that was f1 i am now on f6 and the tall one will still show it face from time to time

right, your selections of offspring will increase the % that trait will be expressed. but, what i wanted to know was, can the trait for a short plant be recessive in one strain while dominant in another. i didn't know if the trait "tall" was universally dominant and "short" universally recessive. which after thinking about it for a while(before i started reading). it didn't make sense anyway. because sativa's are naturally tall, and indica's short, and ruderalis even shorter(but that's mostly due to their fixed life cycle).

okay i see where your going with this short long night with this one. i ve been keep up on news with breeding and me and a friend was talking about triggers that you can hit to make that your plant lean toward one gene group other the other. short or tall blue yellow more of mom then dad etc.... he live in Malawi and he has been growing Malawi gold from seeds of Africa and we have been keeping notes. his are outdoor grows. i send him pics of the the grow and he has never seen the phenos . that i have been grow he word he has never seen them so short compact and green usually no less then 5 feet up to 12 where hes from tall and linky medium buds. so their has to be a trigger for each dormant or recessive gene in the pool right. be it heat, soil wetness, ferts etc..... find what triggers what is the key
