Love it, I now dub the Lowryder x Ultraviolet "El Ruv"!
@cannabissequoia, this would be the thread. Where I have documented most of my work. But my "origin story" has not been documented. Gather around and I'll tell you how I got into autos.
A few years ago I was buying some seeds on Herbies and needed to spend a little more money to get more freebies. So I decided to add some autos to my cart. The "most popular" one listed was Fast and Vast Auto by Heavyweight Seeds. I picked up a 3-pack. I planted one in a 3-gallon tub of Fox Farms Coco Loco and fed it Biocanna nutrients. She grew in my 86-watt filing cabinet (retired). The thing lived up to its name, I was amazed by the speed this thing flowered. The quality was on par with what I was growing at the time and the yield was decent.
Needless to say, I was hooked. I grew out the Fast and Vast and then realized I had to buy more seeds. I decided that I wanted to make my own seeds, so I searched out some regular seeds. I found them in the Seedsman Lowryder mix. I had gotten some Delicious Candy photos as a freebie with a previous order and loved that plant. I decided to try some of their autos. These are the baby pictures for my 2017 Breeder's Pack.
I found a nice male in that Seedsman pack. I thought for sure he was going to be a female because how short he was. I moved him under my bathroom sink to flower and collect pollen. Each girl spent a night with him in turn, then was returned to the main cabinet.
These are the very pregnant mothers. The tall one on the right is "El Ruv" #1.
Well I started testing a bunch of these seeds and found a bunch of males. While going through them, it seemed that the Divyder (Lowryder x La Diva) was the only one that had a 50/50 M/F ratio. I was still just hanging at ICMag, but entered my Divyder into the Beer Cup challenge and won.
Well about this time I found OG. I was into my own ferments and tried to repeat my beer cup results using ferments instead of salt fertilizers. I barely made it to the finish line, but I did pollinate some two Divyders with a reversed Crystal Candy and two Divyders with a reversed La Diva. That tall one is an "El Ruv" that I didnt pollinate. I made a mistake and didn't lable the plants so I had no way of telling what cross was what. Thus was born the Feminized Auto Mix (FAM).
I didnt win the challenge, but I gave every participant a pack of Divyders. Bunch of people started asking and I sent out just about every seed I made. I have one complete breeders pack and a pack or two of Divyders to work that line with.
Thus the cycle continues. Project DFAM is a go, and I want to do the 2019 Breeders Pack while that Lowryder2 pollen is still good.
