    Your not lying often I have random chucks sprouting out of other pots. These chucks I just started are growing awesome even with the cold weather, only lost 3 compared to 9 of the breders gear.

    Although the Malawi I started are coming up fine so that’s good. I like to run mostly sativas in the summer my climate here seems suited for them. I do have a vastly improved grow space from last year so they will really be rocking.

    Looking for that killer Malawi from Ace! Ive grown from some of this pack before had some that were great racy potent smoke & some that were just schwag. See what happens this round I want males of course lol. Maybe cross it to this Mangu Carrot I have flowering if she turns out good smoke.

    Plenty of chucks coming down the pipeline!

    Sounds nice. I've got 2 Malawi's growing 1 pure and another crossed with new Zealand sativa. I'm going to cross gth1 over it to make sure it has a good sativa high. I love growing Sativa's as well have a few sativa strains growing at the moment.

    Out of room, but I see all the fire you guys got going and it makes me drool.

    Should be throwing out tester pics in the next month or two.

    @genuity or anyone else that could possibly help.

    I'd really like to preserve this Guava D I have. When I germed the first 5 from the pack I got all females. Four were very similar and one appeared to lean towards the Stardawg. Anyway, a horrible tragedy had befallen my family. My rooms were taken over by some very well meaning friends. All the Guava D cuts were lost.
    So, I've germed the last of the pack but I know the odds are against me after finding 5 girls in the first round.
    My question is, if I do end up with another female (or two if I'm lucky) should I pollinate using all the males?
    I have no experience "selecting" males and my goal is to just preserve as much of these genetics as possible.

    What would be the best steps to take or easiest direction to go in?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sidenote: Normally I'd do a ton of my own research but my brain is still just not "there". I haven't slept more than a couple hrs a night in 5 months so I'm sorry if this is all over the place.

    Day at a time......day at a time.

    As for the seeds,I'd hit what ever females,with what ever males I get(a few side branches on each female,collect pollen,Qtip pollen on bud sites,label each branch. and that is it)

    Sorry to hear about your situation.
    My understanding of male selection is its based on stem rub, plant structure, vigor, and potentially if it shows trichs around bud sites in veg.
    If i were you and my goal was as much preserved as possible, i would try to systematically use each male to pollinate each female but be very careful to label each branch and distinguish between which male pollinates which branch by labeling.
    Lets say you get one female 4 males. Train the female to have 4 main branches and hit each branch with one male, either with a paintbrush or plastic bag method or some other way. Same if you get 2 fems and 3 males (each female gets hit on one branch from each male). This would likely require keeping males in one area and the female seperate because once pollen drops in an area it spreads easily.
    If you did it all in one i think it would not be an even distribution from the males. One or two would dominate by dropping alittle earlier or by hitting a certain airflow area or something.
    Just my opinion Gen or others can chime in. They know much more than I


    Edit- Gen beat me by 5 min...

    Thank you gen. Most days its hour by hour.

    This sounds like it would be the simplest route to take. Then, later on down the road I can germ several of the seeds and have a good look and go from there. I'm fortunate to have an extra tent to do an (open?) pollination at a separate location, far from my production grow.


    This is ideally what I would "like" to do but to be completely honest, I really don't think i could pull off all that work. I fear I'd certainly fail at any attempts to keep track of that much. I know in reality it sounds simple but simple tasks are still very challenging for me. After I take cuts I will give this at least a try. Maybe one day I'll be able to get up to the levels shown in here but for now I'll be satisfied if I can successfully end up with some F2s. That's what these would be correct?


    The garden is my distraction and I've been growing long enough that it requires little thought. Its mostly routine but chucking is something new. I'm certain I'll be back with more questions. Thank you guys. I really appreciate the time you took to lend me a hand.

    The work begins lol. Seed shucking sucks bad and is sticky work.
    Thoroughly dried but I've gotta dig for em.
    Lots of immature seeds so ill pollinate earlier next time.

    Still Looking for a solid reputable sour diesel to cross to. Don't wanna settle for Cali connection but I've got em if I have too

    I've got a 5x5 tent, that I plan on using for a 25 plant SOG to sort out the f2 generation looking for uniformity. Ill probably have to run twice but might get luck the first time. If f3 looks stable ill run f4 and then hopefully have a dark heart sour d to cross to. Then its time to start over.

    Isolating everything like that is ideal but would take a separate space for each male to know there's no cross contamination. I did a pollination project with the chosen plants in a tent with a charcoal filter in the same house as my flowering rooms. There was a yellow film of pollen on everything in the tent but I didn't see a single seed anywhere else.
