I hope this is the right forum to start this in, if not then I won't be offended if it gets moved. I started getting into weed about 3 years ago, started growing about 15 months ago, and have developed an obsession for it. I have worked with and grown a variety of heirloom herbs, vegetables, and fruits and have always had an affinity for the "forgotten" stuff. Same goes for wine- Like yeah orange sweet potatoes are nice, but there are some incredible white and purple ones. Those enormous red tasteless crunchy tomatoes are essentially a crime against humanity when essentially every heirloom from green zebra to pineapple to white currant all taste orders of magnitude better. Peppers have a variety of flavors not unlike cannabis' terpene expression range. So, as much as I enjoy smoking them I try to breed with minimal skunk 1, Chemdog, Blueberry, and NL and their offspring. Right now I've got USC's Uzbekistan, Nepalma, Black Afghani, and Col'Jam going, and Triple Pakistan curing. I've also got Silverfields late in flower, doing well despite the constant thrip battles and Sannie's Jack in veg. Nepalma: Uzbekistan: (lights have been upgraded since, don't judge for the small buds too harshly haha) Triple Pakistan: Black Afghani are getting flipped right now. I've also got some stuff from Real Seed Company going. For those of you that aren't familiar, they source and sell heirloom and ruderal genetics from around the world, it's essentially raw breeding material. Sinai is finishing up now, it was selected for survivability and adaptability to light changes, as well as resin. There are a bunch of Ukhrul making their way through veg now, with a huge genetic variance. Their Iranian is my next hunting project, then Rasoli. I'll start documenting their individual phenos once they show they're not herm-prone or otherwise weak with the flip back to 18 hours of light. That was a huge selector for Sinai. Two of the phenos did well being taken from 12 to 18 hours of light after showing sex, and two emphatically did not. I made F2's from the strongest female and the three strongest males. As a general rule I tend to select F1's for survivability and effect over anything else. Also, almost finished going into flower are Uzbeknepanama [(Uzbekistan x Nepalma) x (Nepalma x Uxbekistan). I'll do a manual open pollination (7 males and 6 females) and then hunt the next generation hard. In general, since I'm eventually going for IBL's, I'm going to start off crossing multiple mothers and fathers of the strains to cross and then hunting the children. I'm not a geneticist, but this way I figure I can add an extra layer of genetic diversity to the F3's. I mean, mathematically (X*Y) is going to be less than [(X*Y) x (Y*X)] assuming the same values, right? And some recessive traits like webbed leaves only come out past the F2 generation. I feel like it's an extra roll of the dice to get a killer pheno. But I'm here to learn if anyone has insight along those lines!! The main reason that I'm growing and breeding is so that I can have a steady supply of disability meds, so all of the breeding revolves around effects. The lights that I'm using are mostly Kingbrite and HLG quantum boards, as well as some 3000k led bulbs from the store. The soil-less mix is Perlite, peat, EWC, coco coir, dolomite lime, and organic 4-4-4 fertilizer. I'm also using kelp extract (1-3-5) and Botanicare Pure Blend Pro Grow (3-2-4) all the way through flower. For P and K I add fireplace ash, banana skin powder, and fishbone meal (6-18-0) to the dirt a few weeks before flower, and then will periodically top dress with them. I used BAC Bloom for some of these and really liked it, but I can't get it shipped to me at a sustainable price right now so I can't order more. Once that big jug can get to me for a reasonable price I'll be... BAC all over that.
Hello Sannities, Since I've been around here for 10 years now, and I'm mostly running offerings from here, I thought it would be prudent to salute his, and his cohorts hard work, and to the folks that send in the freebies. This round I'll be running LeRat's Big White x Herbi freebi gift. It was Sannies Sugar Punch offering, that had me thinking of threading this run. When ordering, I saw the Herijuana, one of my very first orders I placed once coming here 10 years ago. I want to openly Thank Sannie for his vision and hard work, and for putting together a great team, making Sannies one of the very best on Earth in this business. So, we are running NAW's Blackberry Haze BX1, Sannies Herijuana, Sugar Punch, USC's Triple Pakistan I added Dynasty as I'm still running one of my most fav's Honey Badger Haze clones for a few years now. All 6 Sugar Punches tailed in one day. 5 Herijuana, tailed. 3 Big White x Herbi's tailed. 1 Triple Pakistan tailed, and all are in cups. I just poked the tails in cups this morning, with fresh pro mix and in the veg area. Now where in the &@*!&#@^ did I post the first set of pics? Oh well. That is about all the blahblahblah I got for now.
