I am growing in a 4x8 tent. I have done 5-6 successful grows. Here is my question...Growing 6 seeds same brand, same lights, same soil, all started same time. It seems like I always have one plant that finishes 7-10 days earlier, one plant that is not as healthy as the rest, etc. Do you guys see this sometimes? I assume genetics is the answer.
 
Natural phenotypic variation (genetic mutations), with each seed likely unique (in terms of gene sequences and their expression). Plants have more of this due to being simpler; with plant cells having fewer and poorer gene sequence editing and correction mechanisms (when being replicated/copied) vs. animals and humans.

Breeders must put in work and some luck is still required to be able to produce seeds that grow with consistency, match strain descriptions and each other.
