This run, I open pollenated them with minimal male selection to produce F2. JS#6 is the best female plant of the F1 generation from my grow, IMHO. The seeds that came from JS#6 are now F2, because it's now the 2nd generation from the original F1 cross. The seeds I distributed will have the most phenotype variation of any generation from here out, so it will require more searching from the F2 seed batch... Ideally, as many plants as possible.
What I'll do next is take seeds from the JS#6 female plant, and grow a bunch of them and select a male or males that I like, and cross those to several good females, also from the JS#6 seed F2 seed batch. Then I'll smoke bud from all of the female plants, and when I find the one I like the best, I'll choose the seeds from that plant as my F3 generation.
This is where any interested party can freely join the cause -- Simultaneously, other people might grow out JS#6 seeds as well and produce their own F3 generation seeds. If they want to send me some of their seeds, I will grow those out along side my F3s. I'll repeat the whole process over again, picking the best of the best from mine and everyone else's seeds that contributed. I'll cross the males I like, and choose seeds from the female(s) I like best and those will be my F4s. And I'll distribute back those F4 seeds to everyone who helped out.
Then the process continues over and over again (for me at least) until I have a batch of seeds where every plant that comes out is .
Basically, the goal I'll be trying to get to is a batch of seeds where every plant that comes out is as good or better than the JS#6 that I just grew. I can't run hundreds of plants at a time, so I'm going to extend out my selection capability deeper into filial generations by breeding together a few good plants in each generation. Searching through the F2 generation is probably the most critical point in any IBL, so I'm throwing it out there that if anybody wants to grow a bunch of their JS#6 seeds and give me some seeds from their best selections, it'll help get the overall numbers up. I will also repay you with a lot more seeds that are even more stable when I take mine and everyone else's F3 seeds to create the F4 generation.
It's not too anything too complicated. You just have to be able to run a few males and females, at least enough to do some selection. If anyone is interested in participating, I can start a thread and we can help each other through it. We just have to work out a few logistics, mostly just to agree on an overall deadline to get F3s back to me. We could set a date a year out from now if necessary. I have a big pile of fresh seeds, so no rush -- but I do want to keep some momentum going.
JS #6.I shit you not, this stuff tastes like 7-up. Not just a little like 7up... closer to taking a gulp of it.
It's a really awesome flavor. I'm really excited that the best pheno from my pack was in this grow, and I'm ecstatic that you all get a chance to look through the F2s of #6 and experience it for yourselves. I still have plenty of seeds to do a pretty expansive search
JS #7 Here's some JS#7 dry sift -> rosin I made from all the trim and seeded bud. Flavor more like what I'm used to, as compared to the JS#1. Pine/pinewood and sour lemon. Relaxing, uplifting, cerebral high that seems to pulse in waves. One of those highs where you think you aren't high, but then you stop and think about it and realize you're actually really high. Very functional and contemplative. This is an extremely solid pheno
