some basic nuts and bolts questions...

    I've done some intentional breeding, and had some interesting accidental breeding happened. This winter I want to take some of those first gen crosses (F1?) and cross them with themselves (I'm pretty sure there is a term for that...) to help stabilize the new strains. The thing is, I have limited space.

    I'm thinking about doing the breeding 12/12 from seed, and in the smallest pots possible. I have 1 gallon plastic pots, and "2 gallon" (actual size 1.5g) fabric pots. I grow in a Happy Frog/FFOF mix with HF dry nutes in general.

    What's the smallest pot -- using soil -- that you would go with? Will a small pot stress a plant in ways that would negatively impact the quality of the seeds? So far my plan is to put a boy and girl together in a 2x2 tent and let 'em have at it -- go full seeds. Any reason not to do that?

    Also, do you guys ever up-pot after they show sex? I was thinking about starting them all in 1 gallon, sexing them, and then moving the ones I'm keeping to bigger pots... but I've never up-potted that late in a grow, so I'm not sure if its a bad idea.

    Thanks for the help --
