Well well well, look who’s at it again! Call it an opportunity. Call it a twist of fate. The stars have aligned and I’m on a new side, side, side project.
Not long ago, I F2ed some Cherry Queens. I really thought the male was pretty special. It’s from Mr. Bodhi’s Supernatural Selections, and I think it lives up to its name. It’s one part Fat Cherry Afghani and one part Old Mother Ghani (an old Hindu kush line). It yields well, there are cherry phenos, and it has a versatile high that is good strength, not especially couchlocking or jittery, and functional. The resin is good, and I look forward to trying it in the press. Short-ish flowering at about 60 days.
I passed some over to @vernal, and he grew some recently.
He made a great selection, and graciously offered to send me a cut. Major thanks dude. I didn’t know what I was going to do with it, but I managed to root one .
About the same time, I had been talking to @seven_trees. He got me setup with some auto Hindu Kush.
Looks great, and I love the simplicity – Hindu Kush x Russian Ruderalis. Very cool.
So that’s when it hit me that CQ would probably be pretty great as auto.
Process is (probably) going to go as follows:
- Cross CQ vernal cut with auto Hindu
- Grow F1 to make F2
- Hunt an autoflowering male from F2 generation
- Backcross to Cherry Queen F1
- Grow BX to make BX F2
- Select autos, make fems/regs
Wish me luck!
