    Greetings everyone I hope we're all well, and welcome to what I hope will be the creation of a modest batch of seeds.. I'm hesitant to say strain as I know that takes time and work but I've got great references within everyone else's efforts on the forum.

    I've already taken the first steps and grown a Dark Devil from Sweet Seeds with an Amnesia and Hoffman from Zenseeds letting a male Hoffman pollinate all three females. I wasn't taking photos as it was a stunted grow which was and is a bummer. But I've documented a couple of the offspring that are half done.

    I'm growing these few because I couldn't heIp myself but they will be my last for a while and I dont really have the means to complete moderate to large seed runs to begin with...

    But where there's will, there's a way and as luck would have it I've found a tester/hijacked photo grower!! We've started small with ten seeds of the Amnesia x Hoffman as it was by far the fastest and healthiest of my first two F1s Amn x Hoff and DD x Hoff. So I guess we are inbreeding Amf x Hoff.

    Six that cracked in the first 48hrs were potted up I'm not sure if old mate got around around to the rest... I doubt it as there were no trays for them... Good start already hey guys. They're in 4.5L containers filled with coco under 200w worth of cob led light.

    They're due up within the next 24 id say and I'll be doing my best to get some pictures to start the show.
    Wish me luck.

    Unless I'm mistaken I read somewhere that you're growing dragons?

    Day 12 and lights out at the time of this photo... Pretty much all are showing very attractive leaves and from what their older sister is doing they're going to be a very decent lot of flowers.[​IMG]

    I've found a solitary male flower on the first plant grown of my Amn x Hoff seed from what looks to be rodelization as its a true male flower not Hermie/intersex and the plant is reaching the final stages of its life.

    [​IMG]

    Unless anyone can see for sure that this is a Hermie then this plant has ticked all my boxes to be a parent.. I was planning on hitting it with colloidial silver on a lower branch, leaving it after harvest and pushing nutes and good environment for seed but it went and pushed out a nice male flower for me.

    This girl femmed would be really nice so I might try but I would like some input as to weather its better to use this pollen (fem) or regular pollen from one of her sibling's on the parent chosen from them?

    Any help is much appreciated guys, thanks.

    Pictures from day 16 plants are at 18.
    These guys had just began to show enough sex on day 16 to determine x5 females x1 male and the lagger in the small pot is undetermined but likely male.

    [​IMG]

    They've been getting one watering of the original [email protected]/L and [email protected]/L
    Excuse the shocking quality I couldn't get it to focus as they're now under x2 600w hps.
    With the raise in temps they'll now be hand watered twice instead of once per day.

    They're all still together but this exact space won't be where the breeding happens unless I get crafty but I may have a brand new space ready in time for the action! But for now I hope these hps can keep up with cobs quality wise because their elder sister is looking very, very good

    Be back in a week.

    Day 19 or 20
    These are some ripper plants with very lovely leafs and are already stinking.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Female preflower on all except the small pot from day 16 onward

    [​IMG]

    The male showed more apparent sexing earlier than the females as expected but has been culled anyway, time didn't permit its use.

    [​IMG]

    I don't have immediate access to the space so I unfortunately can't really implement training or pruning techniques which I'm not that fussed about anyway I'm looking forward to seeing them grow into their natural shape.
