Grow Diary Having a dabble at making some F1’s
So a different kind of diary…
I am going to try my hand at making some seeds of the F1 variety (first generation).
This will be kinda like a practise run in case I wanna do it more seriously later on in life … (touch wood)
If anything good comes of it then great, if not, learning is the main mission ..
So I have some regular seed from which I’ll look for a male to pollinate 3 possible females of different strains.
Queens black lime pie are the regs.. here’s a link as they’re not so well known I’m guessing unless your in California..?
The planned mums will be a Mimosa Evo, a Mimosa Orange Punch (both Barneys) and a Kings Juice from Greenhouse Seeds (which is kings kush x mimosa).
Plan is to collect some pollen and pollinate a branch or two of each mum plant leaving most to be unseeded. I’m only aiming to make a few dozen seeds of each type and maybe one day grow some out and select for F2’s or to back cross to the original parents (depending on how they turn out).
I have just taken clones of all potentially participating plants so I have an original copy of each mum and dad.
The plants have just been put under 12/12, a little smaller than I usually would… this is as I don’t know the material I’m working with yet so don’t want to over commit in case they aren’t suitable material…
In an ideal world I’d be selecting from as many plants as possible but that’s not the world I’m living in atm and my main aim is to practise techniques and harvest some F1 seed not make the next GSC 😉
Anyone got a spare field in a sunny country that’s legal let me know 😃
Will aim to update as things happen and report any progress or issues.
Happy growing all
sorry almost forgot … enjoy gratuitous bud porn pic ..

@chillbert This is going to be such a cool learning mission!! It looks like a great plan sending you lots of luck Chillbert🍀🍀

Lotta mimosa! Good luck my friend... if we all made a few beans here and there, we'll never need to buy again!

Cool AF Chillbert mate, following this one ! Best of luck with the experiment man. Absolutely loves me a bit of Mimosa, was my Christmas morning treat last year along with a glass of same, Beautiful 😎
Good luck with the pairings bro! I'm also going to be dabbling in producing a few photo crosses and making some Auto beans my winter projects 🙃
any tips feel free !
Make good ones 😉
had to do it.

Have identified a nice healthy looking male to be a suitable ‘stud’ for the project ..
Queen’s Black Lime Pie male:
This is 7 days into 12/12
Sex was identified after just just 5 days of 12/12 btw ! (Pollen sacks identified in the making) .
Stem rub reveals good terpene potential (strong smell).
Internode structure looks good with strong stems and branches 💪
Speed into flowering also very quick so I think this male has desirable traits so far identified.
Will also be looking to see if it produces a lot of male flowers (stacks) which could indicate potential for good yield.
In time, will tell..
Male removed and placed in own tent for pollen collection in the next couple of weeks.
Plan from here is to collect pollen, freeze some, use some to pollinate an individual branch of each of the Mimosa hybrid ladies.
Will use pollen in plastic bag tied around the branch to be pollinated to try and keep pollen from spreading further during pollination.
The mimosa girls are looking good specimens with possibly the kings juice pick of the bunch, but still very early days..
That’s all for now!
thanks for stopping by

@chillbert, so once you've collected the pollen from the male and then removed the male from the planet. I'm assuming the tent will get scrubbed and cleaned. So then you could use this tent as your pollination tent (only). Keeping it clean and away from everyone else. Sorry, I was thinking out loud and enjoying your plan. I've been cleaning and scrubbing my room. I've had 2-3 hermies in there and haven't wiped down things lately. Fans included. So I can see where isolation and cleanliness is a must. I'll keep watching, thanks man. peace
@chillbert Nice hombre, just fired 3 regs , see whats what 😆 then after them ,the great white cannuk 8742's ,have a male area ready ,no bin for them ,I shall express there swimmers 🏊♀️ and put them on ice 🧊

After collecting pollen male will be composted.. and the tent he was in cleaned and scrubbed as you say.... but i was planning on pollinating inside my flowering room ! risky i know but pollen will stay in the plastic bags at all times during the process. All fans will be turned off and i will attempt to keep pollen from spreading to other plants. If some pollen strays it wont matter too much as all pollen can be atributed to the single male so unknown parentage will not occur!
if i end up with a few too many seeds, so be it! fingers crossed i dont pollinate the whole fkin lot!! lmao
