My incredible Seed Run

About 18-20 months ago I discovered an amazing plant from a pheno hunt. I saw something interesting in this Girl Scout Cookie plant and decided to clone some. Then Covid nailed me bad and my shed/garden took a beating and almost everything died except a few clones. And one clone died in flower and I found a black plant with about 1/4 Oz. of sticky buds and the smoke was great.

So I went to work saving this amazing strain. I wanted it in regular seeds for breeding reasons and fems for ease. But the strain was so stable it would not reverse with colloidal silver and/or stress so the fem breed failed. But the regular breed has been going well. I crossed my closest relative in regular seed and kept crossing the offspring beck to a clone. F3 seeds are done and F4 is in the works, that will be my last seed breeding for a long time. And I have 10 crosses of gear to try out now. So basically I crossed the Girl Scout Cookies with Wedding Cake, Skywalker OG, My Super Diesel, Purple Kush, and Thai cross is ready to breed in 5 days. And I left a few out.

Should be great. The Thai is loaded with THCV so it could be interesting smoke.

The Thai is something that has eluded me. I’ve got all kinds of shit but no Thai.

those crosses sound phenomenal, i hope everything goes well, good luck :blush: :+1:

F4 will bring you to 94% of the clone wouldn’t it?

The crosses sound awesome. Particularly that Skywalker and Thai. Best of luck.

If were talking math it started as 25% GSC x 100%Red GSC. and then Bx1 would be 125% divided by 2 or 62.5. And Bx4 would be 95.3%. But in this case the plants were not that different according to Mendelian rules to start with. And Bx1 is killer I’m sure as I know all my genetics involved, but I haven’t grown it yet

Bx1= 50+25 = 75%
Bx2= 75+12.5 = 87.5%
Bx3= 87.5+6.25 = 93.75%
Bx4= 93.75+3.125 = 96.87%
Bx5= 96.87+1.56 = 98.43%
Bx6= 98.43+0.78 = 99.218%

The more you can grow the better ‘the find’…
I just noticed there’s a heck of an overlap between weed breeding and fishing. At the top, the more you do the better your chances of 'catching a unicorn’. But when you look deeper it’s more about adjusting the probabilities of finding the unicorn.

I need to think about that. :thinking:

Sorry for free associating on your page…

It’s all about chatting. And weed genetics are interesting. And a lot of the genetics are polluted with hermies, not my gear. I stress test a lot and my 2 best strains never hermie under any circumstances.

I’ve been thinking about how to do multiple projects in a year.
Sort of a summer thought exercise.
Currently, I’m thinking 4x 3x3 tents, just because of herms, cross pollination etc. The down side is, I now know I need a certain amount of square footage for support functions… :pinching_hand: :smile:

I may get to put some of this to use in a couple years

I have the two 4X4’s in separate living spaces with separate air source. I have the 5X5 for clones, vegging and autos. So, I can run two at a time. I only did 3 seed runs this year as the timing got messed up. (I have a 2X4 for any issues that come up.)

A lot of people like the idea of a GSC x Skywalker OG. I myself am not moved by the combo, maybe when I grow it.

It’s a luxury to have the extra air space for breeding. I filter the air in and out in my breeding cell and it’s in different air space. And I’m only 30 days from pollen free.
