So a little back drop on the Steem Og. The F1 of Steem Og was made last year by crossing a Tahoo Og x The real Og kush female, with a male Inca Gold. Out of the F1's, I found 3 females, and 4 males. I then took the best female, and the best male out of the bunch to create the F2. The F2 is what you see everyone growing, and is what is going to be used to create Smoke.og.
So the male I will be using to "Fork" the Steem Og is the Astro Beaver. This is a F1 created in Canada. So the Smoke.og will be a two country collabaration. California x Canada! I don't think it can get better then that folks. The female Astro Beaver I have smells exactly like Watermelon Jolly Ranchers. Check out the post here.
So let me show you how I pollinated the Steem
First I had to grow out the male plant to collect pollen.
I then stored the collected pollen in a tuber ware
I then had to wait till a Steem Og was 2 weeks in flower.
The white pistols is what you need to see. This is the ideal time to pollinate a female cannabis plant.
Since I will not finish this plant indoors, I will apply pollen to the whole plant with apply pollen to a Q-tip.
Just apply the pollen gently to the white pistols.
That's it folks!
Well not exactly. It takes 6 weeks for seeds to ripen. After applying the pollen, I will set in my window seal in my room for two days. After I will put this plant in my backyard, and let the sun do the rest.
My hopes with Smoke.og are a great promotional tool for the Smoke Network. Also a group pheno hunt, just like with the Steem Og. I do hope this pheno hunt is larger then the Steem Og. Which is why I am creating more seeds of it then I did with the Steem. Also this is to show solidarity with Steem and Smoke. Regardles of what platform your on, if you love cannabis, then your on my team. If you want to be apart of this project, just comment below, and join the Canna-Curate server and message me.
