White Rhino x Blood Berries = 'BloodRhino'

8 posts in this topic

Hi fellow growers,

 

Putting a thread up here so you can see the progress of one of the four crosses I made with my 'MeshBox Ladies'.

 

The ladies were called the Meshbox Ladies as they started their life off growing in a box made out of mesh and hung on a railing next to a railway siding in late summer 2019. Later, they were placed in a tent in my garage and I built a solar power station to provide their electrical needs. When the autumn turned to winter and sunlight was not providing enough power, I moved them into my Cannavan to finish flowering on mains power, or in my case, to produce seeds.

 

I was gifted some Blood Berries regular seeds together with the 'Quesogood' regular test seeds SubCool sent over from the US in the winter of 2018.

 

I have harvested many wonderful looking seeds, and have germinated a few of each with success.

 

BloodRhino seeds:

If you don't know yet, SubCool, from TGA Genetics / SubCool's The Dank, passed away in his sleep a couple of days ago:

I crossed his male Blood Berries with a White Rhino (GHS), an Eleven Roses (Delicious Seeds), a DeLaHaze (Paradise Seeds) and a HiFi4G (Dutch Passion).

 

Here is the BloodRhino:

So it's pheno-hunting time for these over the coming months / years.

 

This is my first time every breeding, so I'm learning as I go along, with lots of research and listening [although not necessarily obeying] to advice(s).

 

As this grow log continues, let me know when you see obvious White Rhino trait being displayed by the plant(s).

 

Happy Growing,

ShaggyGrower

Thanks for the info, @ShaggyGrower.

It's saddening to hear of the suffering and passing of a fellow grower/breeder.

But that points to the importance of forums like this, to continue to collect and present information to educate and inspire the generations of growers and breeders that will follow us...

This is the 5th of the five BloodRhino I'm germinating. Looks a bit strange. We'll see how it goes.

Up potted my seedings, including the BloodRhino #1.

Media in the pots is John Innes Potting Compost #2 & Perlite (50/50) & Diatomaceous Earth.

Microwaved for 2 minutes to sterilise, and then left to cool.

I placed the rockwool cubes with the seedings in them low enough down in their new pots  so I would still have room in the pots to fill the pots with media to help support the stem an to keep the plant(s) compact height wise.

Happy Growing!

So, I've created monsters, ie, whorled phyllotaxy genetics. I've a BloodHaze which has turned tri (three sprouts/leaves coming off one node). I've now found BloodRhino plants going whorled after a few nodes. Two that are tri-whorled and this one which is quad-whorled:

I've read that whorled-ness is a common mutation/trait. More trait in my case. Currently running at 60% whorled for my BloodRhino's.

 

I've only grown one whorled plant before, Tri, from the White Rhino competition in 2018 on this site (go see the grow log).

 

Happy Whorled of Seeds

Quad-whorled phyllotaxy BloodRhino I've bred probably the most pleasing structure I've ever seen on a young cannabis plant:

Filarotaxia de cuatro vueltas BloodRhino He criado probablemente la estructura más agradable que he visto en una planta joven de cannabis:

Happy Whorled-ness!

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
