:woohoo1: Thanks for posting this info mate, and the others too! They're the most informative I've seen so far-- :thanks:...... I'm dying to get my outdoor grow on with this girlie! I LOVE funky smells, and have had a really cat-pissy bag or two in the past... The nose says one thing, taste is another still (very nice tangy/floral), room smoke aroma was unique and delish'! I hope this one brings the same to the jars- :biggrin:

My skunk grew slow at first. Why is this company crossing all their stuff with auto? That makes it impossible to get moms! Most of their descriptions didn't disclose this auto cross info a little over a year ago when i bought their seeds, and now I'm stuck with semi auto plants that i wanted to mother. This forum deserves a formal review of this company by me because so far my experience has been barely above mediocre :(

With these plants it is more then possible to cut clones skunk special is not an auto but has ruderalis in the pedigree yes but this plant is bred for a shorter flowering time not an auto characteristic .Many companies use autos to shorten flowering time typically a couple of weeks when bred to remain photoperiod is cut off the flowering time when Rudy genes are added .

Not sure if the lemon kush has ruderalis in the blood line or not as far as I remember it doesn't.On a positive note lemon kush is a rather nice indica to smoke for pain an insomnia.

More on my Skunk so far she's a 5 month old mom and already smells. Took a month to get past 6 nodes but then took off. Cloned with 3 inch roots in less than 14 days.

Hi @babethPOWERS!
I am Gennaro from Female Seeds and I am the official representative of the company on this forum. :)
I saw your comments and doubts on this thread as well as on others, and I'd like to help you understanding a bit better our strains. I'd like also to thank the members of this forum, as they have promptly answered your questions... :)

Breeders of all the companies have been crossing photoperiodic strains with autoflowering ones for decades now... as somebody rightly pointed out already, this is mostly to shorten the flowering time of long-flowering strains (think of a pure Sativa, which could take up to 16 weeks just to flower!).
Because of this achievement, nowadays growers are able to pull up to 4 crops per year, as well as grow certain strains outdoor in difficult climates.

I hope this answer is going to be helpful. Just let me know if i can help you with more information...
