Don't want to discourage you here, but you need to look at all the sports that exist from that plant already to see if you think anything new could ever come out.  You can if you want to go thet far, use one of two methods.  By "Bud Isolation" you can cut around the bud formed near the best leaf ( for what you want to "create") thet will be just the first step in a long procedure.  Tou have to do that on successive plants, until you have the right one.  You can do this process faster if you spend the $ on having a limited number of Tc plants done form the "sport" and from those you can frequently choose one that is what you are looking for. 

Hi Jim,
      Do you have a picture, or if not can you describe it. Some types probably cannot be stabilized.

how to "fix it"..........................
