Gambian Autoflowers. How did it happen? In 2008 a friend visited "The Smiling Coast" of Africa, and brought me some seeds as a souvenir. No way i could grow them outdoor in Holland, but a cross was made with a Lowryder#1 and in march 2009 I had these two females out of the f1 seeds, partially pollinated with by an f1 male, grown indoors. So I got the seeds out in time to take the f2 outdoor in may. That became a huge freak show with tall plants, dwarfs and hermies. I was able to select the plants that autoflowered, and had the most "african" appearance to make f3 seeds. In 2010 I searched through the different pheno's, And grew some more outdoors, and had a hard time finding the proper male. You can't keep clones of autoflowering plants, just store pollen for a while. I took a long break from the project, but picked it up last summer, and grew them twice indoors under 250watts HPS. They showed sex after the 4th node, got about 2 feet tall, and the last few f3 plants were these: That's the history of them in a nutshell, I have a detailed topic in Dutch on it, with many pictures, also from their home land. So far I kept back-up seeds of every step in the process. And have about 250 f4 seeds to do the next, bigger selection. I will have room in my cabin in about a month, then I'll do about 20 indoor. the rest goes outdoor, in the garden at the end of may. I recently shared some seeds with a few Opengrowers, and they might show their plants here very soon.
