First all the new seedlings have popped their shells, some i gave a little help to today. So a mix 3 Divyders @reikox , 2 Girl Scout Devils "my crossing", and a BlueTooth and SourCrinkle which are Mephisto, that i enjoyed a couple rounds ago, I may hit a lower bud or two with some pollen if i like how they run.
The previous seedlings on the left side the honey peach and blow mind are kinda stagnant, issue was if they got hit early on with bacteria/dampening off issues so if they power through great but im not counting on it.
And the older attempts "far left" are still going and seem happy so i have no need to cull them yet, honestly don't know what they are as they were just sacrifices to learning, being from what i had the most seeds of, which was from all the seeds reiko sent me, so are either LRxTheDevil or LRxUltraViolet both the #1 instead of #2s . Will have to go back in my journal and see if i mentioned something.
As for the other side i have been collecting pollen and the pollinated plants are starting on seeds.
Some deficiencies and or past and present issues going on, but they are surviving so i haven't really spent any time on correcting any issues or diving further into it just cause i haven't.
been plucking pollen pods as they open maybe once or twice a day just because.
As for the plants im adding these shots, which is really for my own journaling and note taking, as me just like everyone memory only goes so far and is so accurate with time, so just easier to get some info down.
First are the reversed plants
Beyonce and RuPaul In order "just the names they got" for their own reasons lol, but thats for my own referencing to see how things lean in the offspring nothing more than that. Just the plants i decided to use.
Beyonce - Overpowering purple/red pigment trait, good smell fruity/floral, bud structure possible potential which is more compact/dense floral cluster wise but i am unsure on nodal spacing and the nodal amounts for floral cluster, like each proceeding cluster may not build as much as i would like but that is all hard to tell right now because of pollen production plant changes.
RuPaul - Decent floral cluster production, more airy but higher production, lots of smaller leaves, the closer and later developing having more trichomes with the older or lower leaves being relatively barren, would be loose trimmed buds. Smell is nice again fruity/floral, and more subdued color expression compared to Beyonce, but nice in its own regard.
As for the pollinated plants left to right in order.
"Yet to be named or numbered" - is a good middle of the road plant on alot of fronts, smell is decent, production and density is good, trimming will be easier but still will have some buried fan leaves with no trichome production, may express or carry a lower node mutant/multipolate style trait which only showed on the second node "weird" wasn't gonna pollinate it but turned out decent plant wise so they will become burner seeds to have fun with for people and myself, if they express bad traits in common occurrence, they will just be tossed, but will have to grow out offspring first to see.
"Yet to be named or numbered" maybe "fluffy" pheno - Fluffier stacked floral production but not that bad, nice and interesting color expression leans more to a red/pink pigment, good smell, more on the floral side with possible spicier herb backnote (currently i have a cold so i'll have to re test later), Good trichome production, low fan leaf production, just an interesting plant to me. It got hit with a bit more of the Beyonce pollen with the thought that it may add some density back to the the bud production, and pushing the smell out a bit more to the floral and background fruity side
TheGreenPheno - floral fruity smell is there but is a little bit different kinda excited it carried over in that way as typically it hasn't for the green phenos which typically express solvent like smells, floral production is good with good leaf support for growth, a little more spacing than i would like in the bud node spacing which will make good lookers with coverage but weight will be lower and deceptive. Color is neat as there is an underlying purple pigment but with the predominate green side the tips of calyxs and leafs express a dark bronze color with a slight purple overtone, but more bronze than purple its pretty neat, would like to push the traits and see if i can isolate and push and improve them if i can. Gonna be something to pay with...
It got hit more with the RuPaul pollen with my thought on to try and keep or lock in some of those green traits but it also got a decent dose of the Beyonce pollen earlier so will have to see how the ratios play out seeds wise or even if i can tell which sides they come from
Dark Spark - It has the smell hard to describe but fruity/floral leaning grape candy sweetness, whether it will stay around no idea, but was my early pick because of it, it had good density, build, trichome production, and cool colorway with very distinctive purple under leaf trait. Bit smaller plant, and higher leaf ratio and a build structure that i can see as a potential mold susceptibility issue if it was run in a high humidity environment, but also its been stuffed in the back corner the entire time, so may just be how its expressing under its current conditions. Im looking forward to chasing down this side, it got a mix of pollen.
"eazy" pheno - Should be an easy trimmer/leaf plucker, density should be good, floral production is alright but also was stuck in a corner beside and under a fan, may carry that multipolate/segment trait, but that only expressed on node 2 and only one side if i remember correctly "weird" and was really minor, Smell is decent right in the middle floral/fruity wise for what they express. Should be a fun plant to play with density and trimming ability being the higher points of it, Nice color expression too. It got hit with i believe more of the Beyonce pollen with bud density and fan leaf build structure retention more in mind, where the RuPaul pollen will possibly make it fluffier but it got hit with some of that too just to mix it up a bit.
The Sandy Broom - Not using this for obvious reasons but including it just as a reference plant for odd traits, its currently growing seeds too but that's just from stray pollen, i don't intend to keep it and will cut it maybe in the next couple days. Its an interesting plant as everything is trichome covered the further up the plant you go like "fuzzy stalks", but long inter-node distance, low floral cluster production, low fan leaf amount, and stacking calyx trait, and early/quick floral production, should really call this the survivor pheno, as its against the norm of the others and to me expresses traits that seem to make it want to try and grab any errant air born pollen it possibly can, just cause of the high surface area and open structure.
It's a weirdo
