Well any way i crossed and back crossed for five years using five different kinds of plants then as a final step breed what i produced with the original one male which only manages to produce five or six seed which 95% are females but doesn't seem to want to breed with any other males any ideas what would cause that not that I'm complaining because i know no one i sell clones to can ever produce seeds only clones but most aren't that smart and might i mention this plant i produced is over forty year old so have to deal with what few seeds the plant will produce and make clones.

The Goddess will amplify our connection to ever-present growth.
It can be difficult to know where to begin. How should you navigate this non-local quantum soup?
Have you found your path?

I don't believe the other part of the story.
Did you try with landrace males?
How many males did you try anyway?

I think you need to put 20 seeds in soil to get 95% females.
19 out of 20 makes 95%
Any conclusion drawn from a test of five or six seeds is anecdotical anyway.
You need to grow at least 100 plants to get a good idea about the f/m ratio anyway!

The female may be partially sterile from having no pollen tubes or even misshaped calyxes or maybe it has some sort of anomaly like actually getting pollinated by a male, but an inability to make seeds with that pollen.
If this were the case, then it wouldn't matter what male pollen was used.
Sterility in males can include the inability to produce staminate flowers or if the staminate flowers are present, they may be immature or misshaped and may produce pollen that is not viable.
