Discussion in 'Auto-Flowering Strains' started by Tim1987, Mar 4, 2018.
I have only ever used regular seeds.
Just crossed my mind. Im quite intrigued by autos
Yes Autos are fertile just like any other strains. The problem is that most breeders only sell feminised auto seeds. You can't keep an auto mother-plant because it would go into flowering automatically. Seed banks do it on purpose so you keep buying their seeds.
But some still sell regular autos though it is getting pretty hard to find these days.
Hope this helps
Thank you heaps for the info. Makes a lot of sense.
What about future seed stock? Do they have a tendancy to revert to a photo? Or are they an entirely different variety that is stable?
Thanks for the reply
Go read about this stuff from the companies that are doing it if you really want to know, Dutch passion and mephisto explain it all.
Have you seeded any yourself before? If so how was the offspring?
I will give the companies you mentioned a search in google now, and see if i can find what you speak of.
Thanks for the reply
It takes a long time to stabilise a strain and you have to work with regular seeds or else you will end up with hermies and the gene pool will also get poorer.
Thanks a lot bro. Thats what i suspected.
Thankyou for helping me
You can seed a fem auto and get a ton of fem seeds of the same plant for $20. Not sure this is what you guys are talking about. I’m not going to go into it here. I have a link below in my sig. BKR Project or something similar. It talks about TMist.
100% false. Where the fuck do you people get your info from.
Well instead of being a smart arse, why not use your brain like he did and explain it. Instead of being a fucking ignoramus .
Sorry. I can’t stand false info.
Again - see my BKR Project link. It explains what to do for lotsO fem seeds from a fem plant.
I’m not going to take my time to explain this again. It’s so easy it’s stupid.
Happy seed making.
Dick here being helpful - You can take ANY fem plant and produce hundreds of fem.seeds.
I think the last time I bought seeds was probably 7 years ago or so. I have a bank of a few thousand fem seeds. Just saying……
@HighLowGrow thread .... Look at it .
FEMMY seeding is hella easy with autos. You can CS/STS an autos lower branch , grow some lady nuts - harvest the pods OR " self " the bitch and get more auto seeds than you need.
To me it's easier than keeping a mother - I can save a favorable structured auto ( diffent phenos can express , even from same stock ) - some lanky , some stout. From there you can SAVE it with a simple treat. And work with multiple strains without sacrificing space for " mother plant ".
Here is GSG auto seeds :
Sprayed one plant ( 2 branches ) ... FEMMY pods grew ... Harvested branches , placed in glass of water , over a mirror . Pods open and dump. Business card scrape the pollen
( like Kief ) and use a thin paint brush to pollinate 2 branches on other plant.
Come harvest time for main buds -
Check the lowers and you also get seeds . Sometimes I leave the SEEDED branches behind to fully finish them.
I dont want only females. I dont think you guys are understang my question.
I want males and females, period.
Is it achievable with autos?
Fem seed are the shittest thing to do imho. If i want all females ill take some cuts off a mother. I love breeding. And to me seeding a crop and waiting to see how your reggie seeds turned out the next time you grow, can be one of the best things in the world. Its totally your own.
So back to the question at hand. Can you get male and female autoflowers to cross your own? And will the offspring be fertile?
Again, not interested in feminised seeds in the slightest.
For me so far this 100% explains my question.
Thanks again for your insight dude
I think so
As i just pollinated an auto blackberry kush from dutch passion with a stank slee skunk male
Well see in a few weeks but im pretty sure i got some seeds in there
But in my case since i crossed an auto with a photo ill probably get a mix of male and female
Reg and auto seeds ....talk about mystery lol
Can you keep me posted on how it goes? Pm or something? Very cool
Do you think if you struck 50/50 auto and regular, 25% might be auto males?
No prob ..
Find my journal .
Ill be harvesting it any day the bud is done but im letting it go cause i want as many of my seeds to be developed
