Growing for the future - Home Grown

Recommended Posts

I am a horticulturist breeding and growing Cannabis for medical users.

Never been a social smoker, or needy buddy. Mostly smoke leaf.

 

Nothing in common with cannabis seed industry practices.

Serves me no good purpose to point out how low this general industry has stooped.

 

My best genetics are a Skunk1 Haze cross grown and stabilised over 20yrs.

More recently I have crossed many strains, and still sorting through them.

 

Pakistan Valley and Afghani grow extremely well in our hot Australian climate.

High CBD plants are easy to grow and breed, with local adaption to boot.

 

Some medical users get benefit from high CBD strains, but those retired with injuries, want high THC.

As one medical user explained, this low THC sativa dominant plant has me climbing the walls.

 

These are the strains I wish to obtain for future breeding.

Durban – CannaBioGen

Bubba Kush S1 – Humboldt CSI

(Edit; Add - Triangle Kush S1)

Ghost OG  – CannaVenture

Skunk #1 – White Label

Chem Berry D - darkhorsegenetics

Hello Home-Grown and welcome to forum :)

 

That sounds fantastic, preserving and stabilizing a strain for so many years, great job!

 

Do you have any flowering photos of the strains you're talking about? I'd like to see your  PV and Afghani, if possible

 

Cheers!

Hi Jose,

Sorry for delay in reply.

PV standard seed was obtained with a dozen fem strains for breeding.

The best from batch was PV (M)  x Chem OG = PVC.

I grew a dozen PVC and put shortest plant aside for a smoke test at maturity.

The chosen PVC grew into a male with two long vine like leaders.

I crossed PVC (M) back with Chem OG, which has created a plant I am calling Divine.

 

Divine is not branched unless pruned, and will still maintain un-branched vine like leaders.

Two sizes, one around 2M, the other could grow to 4-5M or more with right conditions.

Divine produces extremely dense potent flowers up to 10mm round.    

 

I am using Divine for breeding purposes, as the yield is not really viable.

Should be able to borrow a camera to take pic over coming days.

Looking for Oaxacan or Columbian Black if you can help.

What would be the best remaining genetics for these?

 

Cheers.

Hi Jose,

GH is for Green House, slowly working things out.

I am unable to walk ATM, back issues. No Camera.

Here are ((Pakastan Valley x Chem OG) x Chem OG) x White Widow.

Far right is OG Kush, I am smoking now.

After Growing plants including White Widow, OSSC BB#3 and Gorilla from Dinafem, it is clear that we set a very high standard down under.

Not saying that potent plants are 1 in 1,000,000 for any given strain, but the average is not good.

I grow for a person suffering MS, other ailments and recreational.

 

I have Hawaiian Snow seed in now, knowing there is a high risk of hermies for breeding purposes with Hawaiian/Thai.

 

I contacted darkhorsegenetics about Chem Berry D, Bill tells me it will be available in June.

This sounds like just what I need. Putting some pennies together for the June drop.

 

I hope to Cross Chem Berry D with Hawaiian Snow.

Would like to know more about Laos?

LEFT: (PV x Chemo OG) x ((Skunk x Haze)x Skunk)     -    Used Males left side in equations!

You will notice I had to support top bud after branch damage. Piece of slit tube.

Strain Carried some fruity flavours but also hermies and autoflower.

I've got single male that cannot be turned, just a single chance plant used in breeding.

RIGHT: Gorila

Re: Afghani and PV.

My initial process was to choose a male from the Motherland that would not express hermies in nature; I choose Afghani #1 and Pakistan Valley, in part out of being affordable.  The Afghani was female and continued to add flower until the earlier material was over ripe and purple.

The Pakistan Valley was Male, used to pollinate the first batch of fem strains.

Both plants grew very vigorous in our late summer,

 

I do not retain any original Afghani or PV, only the seed from the cross between them!

--------------------

Present:

I have been putting the most work into creating and selecting male.

The Traits of present male is unbranched with node spacing of about 2/3 most average plants.

This spacing tightens to stacked leaves in cooler climate conditions.

 

As with above Strains in photos, I have hybrid plants from OSSC BB#3 and Dinafem’s Gorilla.

Any hybrid Males will be used in back cross to their Mothers.

-------------------

 

Question:

Could you help or ask Green House Seeds, what temperature they germinate Hawaiian Snow?

Exactly, were are they taking the temperature and is it a wet or dry measure?

I have dry thermostate sensor on base of rockwool tray out of direct light.

The temperature is set to 27.7 - 28 C with Hawaiian Snow in now.

Cuttings and indica 27.6 - 27.9 C (container of water = 27C).

Finishing up here, and wait for your reply.

 

Cheers

Planted 3 Hawaiian Snow in rockwool, no germination.

Still have the remaining seeds from pack, but decided to give HS a miss.

I spoke to someone last year who said they had no luck with germination.

Hope we can get to the bottom of this, where the problem is.

Thank you Jose, but science and horticulture are my life.

Skaze Bush Phenotype produces crowns on the end of each branch.

Branching is very thick and sturdie. Do not plant in white ant infested soil.

In all other aspects, the plant is bullet proof in hot climate.

If you were not interested, I would close the forum :)
