Plant & Cannabis DNA Testing
SPEND LESS. GROW MORE.
A New Way To Know and Grow
Genetic testing allows you to glimpse into the genetics of a plant long before you’re able to observe what they actually will look like.
A small amount of DNA collected from a leaf makes cultivation more efficient by saving you time, electricity, water, labor, and ultimately your wallet.

Go Beyond The Lab
Instead of eliminating the plants identified as infected it can be useful to move plants into quarantine and observe for visible signs of infection. Why? It’s still too early to understand if HLVd attacks all genetics or if some are, in fact, resistant to the viroid. As a lab that offers HLVd and other virus testing, Delta Leaf advocates for secondary analysis methods outlined below to better account for plants that may be resistant.
HLVd can spread by bringing infected mothers/clones into your facility, or by people traveling in between facilities. “Latent” means delayed; and HLVd can sit dormant undetected for extended periods of time. It’s a silent disease that might not show if it’s affecting your plants until it’s too late. With very little known about how to combat HLVd aside from very expensive tissue culturing, we recommend every large and small growing facility begin taking steps to prevent an outbreak within your operations.
To the best of my knowledge, cannabis hermaphrodites are genetic females, by definition (two X chromosomes). We at Delta Leaf have never seen nor heard of a genetically confirmed Male plant that ended up developing female flowers. Does this mean the hermaphroditic trait – or the genetic tendency for an individual plant to develop both male & female flowers – can only be passed on by the mother?
