Um, I actually think I should add this: To my knowledge, when you self a plant, you are taking the plants' pollen and placing it on the pistil of the same plants' flowers.
What I understood from this is that you are taking pollen from a flower on one VFT, and transferring that pollen to a receptive pistil on another flower of the same plant.
To cross a plant, which I believe is what Mufasa is saying, you take two VFTs, whether of the same cultivar or not, and you transfer pollen from the flower of one plant onto the receptive pistil of the flower on the other plant.
So, if Mufasa is buying Galaxy x Galaxy labeled seeds, what he would want to do is ask and make sure that the seeds came from a cross between two different plants of the same cultivar.
I'm not sure if this will make any difference from selfing, as two Galaxy plants are genetically identical, but I have not done any significant study of this so I wouldn't know.
See what Matt says.
