It don't come naturally. You have to be lost in the woods a couple of times and gain momentum on the line also, but you allready know that. Trying each time just reduce the learning curve a lot. It can appear simple, but it's not. Specially at the begin of a project, that's the most complicated step we are all forced to pass at one moment. I've allready grown the Sensi Star for my weed stash, but i will be not in ease when i will launch the twos dozens of seeds i've hunted. That's the game ^^
It's why i say in loop than for the firestarter's specimens, the most important is to follow the segregations in parralel lines over to act only on faith and to have the guarantee to destruct something. I like the dices with the same number on all faces ^^
You will learn more it by your photographic archives imho, in front of the offspring. Then a specific document will appear more and more clear, specially if you play with STS.
For now, i see than you have maded all necessary reforms possibles to work on a solid base. That's the most important to my eyes to share an opinion in depth.
Yup @Craigson15, you can ignore everything then finish with a fire weed. That's possible also. But the chance to born with this gift is pretty low. The breeders than have truly writed the history of our cannabis can be counted in only one hand. It's a matter of faith after that, i don't know, i love rationnal things. And also to compensate my lack of super power by a constant work.
But i known one thing than is freaking stable with stoners, if they try their chance on breeding and end nowhere fast ... they give up. And it's a bad thing for all growers of the world. It's where a decent method can reduce a bit the losses of, sometimes, great potentials.
