They look gorgeous! The picture of health. Good job as usual.
Ty ty. First time growing out the cross and happy to see each plant carried same frost as mother. Issues in the line need to be bred out. Hoping it goes well but seems pretty straight forward. Pick healthy sturdy males with stink and early frost and cross to stable females with good frost and frame. Very interesting stuff. It's not work if it's what you love.

I'm looking forward to seeing your next generation!

What would be the best method for making F2s of a strain that is no longer available? I have some Bodhi strains I'd like to F2 like SSDD but not sure if I should be picky about the male and female I use or open pollinate.

I've made some with Headtrip but I just used a female I really liked and the only male I had, I didn't really put any thought or planning into it other than "lets make some seeds".

Open pollination is best for preservation

Also takes the most space... I have 14 SSDD seeds, I could maybe 12/12 them all from seed in small pots, let them open pollinate and then reveg any females that stand out?

Would collecting pollen from all males, mixing it together then pollinating select branches on the female give similar results to open pollinating without seeding the entire crop?

I saw quite a few variants in the F2. Took a while to show sex. Seemed 60/40 sativa to indicate leaning. Bout 30% had strawberry scent, a couple had citrus, and the rest were pine with hints of rubber.

Since my keeper females aren't the super fruity ones I will have to find a fruity male I think. Had a nice one with strong stems but I had too much on my plate to be running clones at the time.

Life has slowed down again so I figure night as well try to stabilize the goji. Hoping to get 50% fruit to citrus pine ratio while retaining the frost and removing the sensitive to stress plants.

What I did with my goji parents.

Cover a branch of flowers with a bag. Mist everything else down real good. Remove bag and apply pollen gently. That gave me like 50+ seeds.

Can't remember if I misted them again after the pollen took. I believe I read somewhere it doesn't take long for pollination to complete.

Barely a seed anywhere but where I intended.

What happened with your last goji f2? Did you cross to a sibling or outside genetics?
I pollinated the mother before trying it, like I'm doing now, and it turned out to be a let down. Attractive flowers but smells were very light and unappealing, with a bland high. All the F2s I tested had the same smell, flower morphology and I believe I even saw a few nanners as well. I tried one cross to a Granola Funk F2 with the father used in the Goji F2 and it turned out great with ridiculously strong artificial strawberry smell.

Goji used to make those F2s :
