Hello Opengrowers After being underground for a while it is time again to get viral again, i was so underground that some people thought I was drowning The last 2 years where the toughest 2 years from my time as breeder and business man. Sanniesshop growed to a nice and fancy office with 3 people working for me and helping me with every day business. 2 years ago the credit card option broken down (war on drugs USA) and lost a big part of my business. After this the dutch coverment decided to take a example from the USA and we got a heavy growshop law that gave a lot of restrictions on how to do business over here in Holland. Fair or not i had to decide to change the whole business model from sanniesshop and went quite deep underground, no office and employees anymore and decided to go further with sanniesshop on my own, just like as I started it in the beginning. (this was around 2 year ago) Becuase sales dropped with around the 60% our grow rooms had to be adjusted and me and Knutsel had to work with less space and less income. This situation we are living now and it works fine as how we do business at the moment. Me and Knutsel did not started this to get rich but to make top genetics available for a fair price . With this in mind we build a new business model to make less seeds but stay on track to make top notch genetics, only in a smaller set up. Our grow rooms are now not making seeds but we are doing some selections to go to the next generation parents, this will not be in favor with the seed stock for the coming half year but nescesary to maintain quality and the need to have fun making selections and share some selections with my customers. Step by step coming back from to deep underground breeding. So the next half year there will be strains out of stock but know we are working on improving quality and stock again so they will come back again but give us some time to do what we do best and that is working on a next generation seeds. This said I will show a Jackberry selection that I am working on for the moment. The goal is to find one new mother plant and one new male jackberry, the male jackberry and female jackberry will be used to make F5 seeds and the F2 female jackberry will be used again to make fem seeds in combination with the new selected female from this topic. 40 jackberry F4 seeds in the spongepots, 39 popped like a charm and the nicest seedlings can be used to go into soil 12 days later the best 33 best seedlings in there soil containers, the soil is updated with symbiosis (mycorrhiza) bacto and perfect start 2 days later Really nice and healthy seedlings, already looking as a jackberry should be Growing strong and still in veg stage Plants become to big to stay in one room so I divided them in 2 separate grow rooms, they are 2 days in flower Second grow room Preventive using PVP (plant vitality plus) so that bugs don't get a change Because of the smaller soil containers the pre flowering starts already after 5-7 days Female pre flowering Strong and healthy Jackberry 9 best males put aside to select the best one in a few days Now I know which plants can go to the selection room I choose the best 9 females to repot them. Bio-char+ and mycorrhiza will be mixed thru the soil Filled up the bucket and the selected jackberry can go in the new soil, the soil will be supported by 2 buffertablets, first time watering I always use a bacto solution. The 9 best females in 11 liter buckets ready to surprise me The 9 males waiting to get destroyed accept the best one We are working on more selections but more about this when the plants are some bigger to have something to show you guys. Fresh update soon greetz sannie
