Don’t be shy; great things can come from interacting with your peers in this awesome community. I’ll start...
NOVICE. The only knowledge of breeding I have has come from books. I have no practice with breeding, just information floating around in my head. I would consider myself prejudiced against ruderalis and feminized plants when it comes to breeding; I wouldn’t want those genes anywhere near my pool, but I respect other’s choice to include them.
My thoughts on growing tend to lean very heavy toward the organic side, although that didn’t used to be the case. I used to think that organic gardening was a complicated technique that only hippy magicians in tune with the vibrations of the soil could pull off. I don’t judge though. Your style is your style, grow the way you want to but be open to new ideas and techniques.
I can get pretty nerdy with the data collection. You never know what data set is going to open your eyes to something new. I think that cutting edge technology and current verified science can help perfect your grow, gadgets are nifty, and automated controllers and sensors are cool as hell. I want the door to my lab to make that satisfying “spaceship door opening and hissing” sound. That would make me so happy.
My ultimate goal for breeding would be to stabilize a cross with desired traits all the way to F9. And then share it with the world. I think that Overgrow is a good place to start that journey, and a great place for a page in history to be written by an awesome community.
