This physical expression of a genotype is called the phenotype. This simply means the traits that the environment pulls out from the plant’s genetics. The environment, therefore, can steer various plant properties including color, shape, density, smell, and resin production.

Phenotypes is a simple description explaining those variations or ‘types’.
Phenotype = (plant genotype + environment) + genotype interactions with the environment
