    Haven't done a seed crop myself. But a close, well seasoned, friend of mine, recommended over maturing the plant by a couple a weeks, like 2-3 just to ensure maturation of the seeds.

    Also ended up being the nicest strongest best smelling flowers yet.

    The 2 cents of a Primate :P

          They look similar to the parent, i think?

          Some people say that S1s are crummy, but from most of what i have seen they seem to be a good enough copy of the parent.

              Alfred, yeah i think they are fairly uniform and fairly close to the bubba cut... so far. obviously the bubba cut is a mature clone that will grow differently from a seed plant. these look a bit 'deep chunk' like to me and ive heard it said that the bubba is genetically close to that... but they look like a pheno of DC that you may spend a long time looking for!

              the success of S1s and whether they uniformly resemble the P1 (parent plant ) depends entirely on how treu-breeding the parent is. Bubba by all accounts breeds fairly true for many traits and so i thought making S1s might be a good call.
              making S1s of some multi hybrid elite clone would not work so well.

              hey RD -yeah it doesnt get hot in UK often enough to be prepared for it i find that if you keep the air moving and use stable genetics (**touch wood**) that you can get away with a fair bit.

                Nice VG...very nice.

                I have some Chem '91 Skunk Va S1's that I'm itching to get started and find reading your explorations into the selfing of the bubba very interesting...

                ...keep it up!

                  I grew out Bubba pre98 s1's from another breeder a few years back, and of all the seeds I've gone through the pre98 s1's were the best seed representation of a clone only strain...I will take an s1 over a backcross, incross, or ibl all day long.

                  Should be noted that this same breeder re released Bubba s1's a year or two later but used a different technique to make the seeds and had sub-par results on the 2nd version...but Verdant's are looking legit just like the first batch of s1's I grew out....

                  I sure miss me some real Bubba, in my opinion it is the best tasting, best smelling and best looking strain in the world...with a very heavy indica stone.

                  I will certainly be trying to score a couple packs on the next drop.

                    hummus monk - thanks! - good luck with your chem S1s - i'll be interested in seeing how they come out.

                    J.G - thats great to hear! - yeah from all i read, the bubba breeds fairly true, so i thought S1s would be a good bet. first off my intention was just to make some for myself to back up the genetics... but getting the bubba to reverse was quite a lot of work and i thought i may as well make as many seeds as possible, and now, after they have proved popular, im desparately trying to make some more! i fear that the plant i have nearly ready may not have seeds in the buds, i cant see any but that may be because i pollinated early and the buds kept growing afterwards... having said that i have another plant reversing that has been in flower for about a week, using exactly the same method as before - just a bigger plant. i also have a couple of bubba plants vegging up to pollinate for seeds, so if all goes well there will be a decent amount of seeds in 2-3 months, and with luck there could be some in a couple of weeks, but dont hold your breath for those!

                          luv a grow, thanks for the good feedback - yeah its been very interesting growing out these S1s... really helps you understand the progeny of a plant - and even more so if i have grown a few more

                          45 king - hopefully that will be soon!

                          got some more pics, looking more bubba like every day!, and i would say they all smell pretty bubba like, some a little more earthy, some more aromatic.

                          at around or coming up to 6 weeks i think - some are purpling up, not because of any cold though... its been hot. in fact these plants have been fairly well stress tested i would say. they were all squeezed into a square foot until a week or so ago!

                          plant 2 -


                          side bud, pleased with this shot

                            plant 3




                            plant 4



                            so yeah, pretty pleased so far. the plants have yellowed fairly early due to being in small 1 gallon pots, cant wait to smoke some!

                              I managed to snaffle some when they were first available.

                                I can see why they say sour bubble has bubba in it. Beautiful plants.
