    Woof, woof, looking good in there, can't believe you already have some clones going. Glad to hear they clone easy, the BR line is one of the fastest cloners I have so no surprises there. Is the mother flowering yet? Just wondering if you're seeing any signs of purps.

    Those CR babies I have in the cups are looking better every day. Will likely have to cull some at some point, right now all 10 seedlings are looking worthy of 1gal pots :) If they get big enough to clone in the 1gal pots I may just run them all other than whatever males pop.

    So is higher humidity a concern when breeding males for pollen? I know moisture can be bad for pollen, but I'm paranoid about exhausting air from this 3x3. Just one 100w Mars Hydro is doing great for these dudes, but it's kinda muggy in there.

    Yeah for harvest time you want to harvest in the lowest RH you can, I wrecked a whole harvest in August when RH was high when I was harvesting.

    For growing them it's kind of the same rules as females, too high and risk some mould or PM but my breeding tent runs around 55% when I have the fans off (usually around the 2 week in flowering mark for males). If RH gets too high for your liking you could filter the exhaust, even with pantyhose or a furnace filter temporarily.

    It works with or against you ime. If you just want to pollenate a branch it's high rh and the pollen flies all over. If it's low it sticks to what's nearest and that's it. Like praying for males when your stable is stacked with killer keepers... You get nothing but unusable ballsacks. Ime anyway..

    I'm finding it's usually good with normal RH which sits around 40-45. When I was harvesting some at end of summer RH was running like 65%. It was fine for collecting some and hitting the plants right away, those all came out. But the balance I'd collected for storage got all clumpy and shit, ended up tossing it :(

    Was it cut with flour?

    Yeah, I think it was the flour that picked up the moisture. Probably hadn't harvested in that high RH before, should have been paying better attention. Lesson learned ;)

    I collected quite a bit of Blue Ripper pollen, didn't cut it and put it in a screw top container meant to handle liquid. Seems fine, just thawed it out and it looks good to go, some chucking tomorrow :mrgreen:

    Sounds about the same, I'll typically clone about 2-3 weeks into 1gal pots and take the lower or side branches depending on the plant. Knowing your luck you'll grab a purple pheno from that single reg seed ;)

    Busy day, gotta get some of the babies up-potted, make some caps, and chuck some pollen bongsmilie

    Pheno hunt babies in their 1gal fabrics. Did an initial culling of any that didn't cut it for smell, colour, or structure. Left to right there's 8x Columbian Ripper, 6x Blue Ripper, and 4x Blue Ripper x Blue Pyramid. They'll stay in the 1gal's to sex, clone & up-pot before flipping the females. Hopefully 8-10 fems I can do in 2gal's. Day 20/21 from planting in the cups.

    Cheers, had to look those up, they're 2 years old and have held up quite well. Root Pouch is the brand, I have a bunch in 1/2/3/5/7's and they've all held up well.

    Are these under 24hr light?

    Ripper reveg got clones taken.

    Did a germination test of some fresh seeds, 4 of 5 popped I physically lost one between putting it in the paper towel and checking it 2 days later, 99% germ rate?

    Verigated might be shifting out of it? Vegging slowly so I think I'll extend by a few weeks.

    Hey man, I run 20/4 with seedlings and clones, sometimes drop it to 16/8 if I need to hold them for a bit but otherwise 20/4. Those are going fairly well, should be able to sex within 4-5 weeks from planting :)

    Re-veg looks healthy, looks like it'll go again :) That paper towel thing is why I eventually just settled on dropping them in a cup for ~48 hours and planting them. I don't know how many I killed in transfers and peeling back the paper towel #$%!

    Yeah those BR x BP seem to be growing out of the leaf mutation, all are looking good. I culled the one seedling I had which started with all the leaves mutated, just wasn't going anywhere and looked weak, off with their heads!
