    Goong to bed but fromwhat I hear auto is a recessive trait so only about 25%will be auto i think.

    This is my first "chuck" :)

    You can't keep cutting from autos they stall out for a week or two but there's no way of stopping them from flowering.

    autos are easy to stabilize, most of the work has been done already.

    The strain I had reg seeds of, only 3 out of 8 made it. I got a small male and female and one photo period mutant. Figured I could breed the male and I have more stable auto line. I took my male and knocked up a different auto I had, she was covered in spider mites and I wanted to start her over; this was the window of opportunity that had me make seeds. I'm growing these seeds now, here's my female.

    Yes , male autos can happen time to time.
    Breeders will list " regular " autos and fem autos .
    They are listed as " untested " sometimes on pack.

    They have great strains and their freebies game is epic.
    I ordered from these guys 6 times already - ALWAYS got more than I ordered.


    Notice the " Untested " Purple Snow / bubba / GG4 ( triple cross )
    Everything in that zip is the freebie stuff !

    I love the looks, and sound of "Green Work Collective". I really like their reasons for breeding.
    Maybe "Farmhouse Genetics" aswell.
    Cheers guys :bigjoint:

    Maybe "Hazeman" too. All haze strains sounds pretty cool.

    Avoid flash and short stuff, I've had a bad time with their reg beans not going into flower or poor germ rates. Now I have red libanon from flash growing and the seedlings are laying down; perfectly healthy plants but I can't get them to stand up straight.

    If you think stabilising a strain doesn't happen over many selections based on the traits you wish to stabilise and if you think feminised seeds are as rich genetically as regular seeds, please explain it to us instead of saying that something is stupid.

    Cheers,

    How many times do you spray and for how long? And when do you start to spray the collide all silver spray? Thank in advanced!

    Some do different , but I do one of two ways :

    Autos - when plant begins to sex , pick a lower branch or two , tag them , and spray once or twice a day . I target leaf and stem.

    It can take from 10-20 days to get some balls to form , then I stop and let pods form.

    Photos : I veg til ready to flip ( based on how big a plant I want ) , 12/12 cycle , I wait about 5 days in ( plant is going thru hormonal changes - transition ) then do as above.
    Some strains will throw balls quick , some longer and some never.

    Remember to contain spray to the leaves / sites you are spraying as not to contaminate the other flower sites.

    You can grow out the clusters until they look like they will split ... Carefully cut of branch , place in a glass of water to keep its stem hydrated and park it over a piece of glass , mirror to catch any pollen which will open. I also tweezer ( carefully ) the pods off the plant branch , dry them out , and scrape them across a 150 mesh strainer ( I use a classifier that is used in gold prospecting ) and it allows the pollen to fall thru to mirror or plate.
