The question: Is it feasible to intentionally seed auto-flowering strains to use as my consecutive planting stock? Follow-up question: Are there any particular brands/strains that may be more stable/suitable to do this with? Basically I want to purchase seeds once and then practically never ever again. It's bad enough having to bring attention to myself once, let alone over and over again. Don't even say 'stock up', because that will make it worse, making me look like I want to start the biggest farm in the country or something if it does get intercepted. I have no room for indoor and outdoor will be interfered with by porch and other lights. That's why I'm going with Auto. It has to be something that will flower no matter what lights are on or off at random times. As already mentioned though, I don't want to keep buying seeds. As far as I know, it's not feasible to take cuttings from an Auto. So my current idea in mind is to buy maybe 30 seeds to stock up, then intentionally let some plants go to seed along the way. I'll keep the males and females somewhat separated, so maybe can then intentionally fertilse only some of the females and keep the strains breeding separately. However my concern is if this second generation of seed (the seed I buy being the first, of course) reverts back to it's grandparent lineage. For some strains, this could possibly mean ending up with a bunch of seed which is only sparingly Auto? Or maybe it could end up being Auto, but being too heavily Ruderalis and as such being just hemp? One idea I had in mind to help keep things on track, is to back cross a few times back to the original seed stocks. Like breed the 2nd gen, then take a good female from that gen and cross it back to gen 1 (the seed I'm buying). Then take that 3rd gen and again breed it back to gen 1. Maybe by that stage it will be several generations deep in auto-flowering, but will also have the other traits (such as it's potency, etc) injected back in along the way, so hence forth can be used to make a gen 4 (when needed) our of gen 3 + gen 3 (as I will be out of bought stock by then). So does anyone have any insight for me with this situation? General impressions of this will work out and etc. Also maybe some people know some strains which are already a few generations of Auto deep or otherwise solid on the trait. For example I saw one Skunk auto which said only 50% of the seeds are auto! That's the opposite of what I want, and is actually a good example of how I don't want the randomness and uncertainty of breeding to make it all go wrong.
