What's up my Smokers! So some serious progress coming along with the Smoke.og breeding project. Out of the 10 seeds cracked, it's looking like I got 3 males, plus 6 females, one Peanut Butter Breath was gifted to my co worker so I could make some room in my 2x3 foot closet. I guess the hardest part now is deciding which male to cross the Steem Og with. Also even harder is to decide which females to keep around in my library. I will try to keep them around long enough to see which buds are the best, but with small space, it's a bit like playing a game of musical chairs. Lets take a look at some of my promising pheno's.
Males that I have to choose from to fork my Steem Og
- Astro Beaver
- Dj Short Blueberry
I was surprised that all 4 Peanut Butter Breaths where all female. I am really loving this cross of Do-Si-DOs and Mendo Breath. All pheno's are short, and the nodes are compact. Also the leaf structure is so cool looking!
The smell coming off them is a really earthy smell. Which I enjoy.
So I would have to say I am a bit disappointed on how the Dj Short females are turning out. Well not disappointed, but not impressed. But that is mainly due to the other two strains I have. There is one Dj Short that is cool looking, but it's just to tall for my liking for indoor.
One strain that is really impressing me is the Astro Beaver. This is one @bluntsmasha talks very highly of. Would you believe that out of two seeds he gave me, both grew, and I have one female, and one male! So excited to use this one for breeding. I might have to use it for the Smoke.og.
That is the female AB. I defoliated a little to get some more light to those bottom shoots, which are so perfect to take some cuttings. I will soon transplant this one into a 3 gallon pot, take cuttings, let veg a little longer, then flip!
So I am probably going to be seeing pollen dropping withing the next 2 weeks. I am also going to be making more crosses then just the Smoke.og. Very excited to show you all what a hobby bredder can do. Just like the saying goes: "Give a man a fish, he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, he will eat for a lifetime." Same things applies to making your own cannabis seeds. Peace out, and blessings to all. Oh yeah a thought for you to consider. Remember Smoke is small and it's still growing, and I really am enjoying it. But some things im seeing that I am not liking. Some people who deeply love Smoke, and rightfully so, are letting their emotions get in the way. If someone does something like cross post, from Steem, or promote Steem, please remember if you yell and cuss them you are doing more damage then the said person cross posting. There are ways to go about things, if you don't agree, don't up vote move along. You are just making this platform look bad when your emotions get in the way. Lead by example, also to others who are not using Smoke the way @stoner envisions, remember these words, " In order to lead, you have to follow."
