four of us got together and chose 3 'best of' to take cuts from. One top contender was disqualified for drooping at night shown in last pic taken Aug 8th. Our goal was to select for fastest flowering and hardiest among competition. Plants were culled shortly after not wanting to chance a late hermie
How many landrace seeds we talking and what are your goals HC?
Wow Rico, this is exactly what I'm trying to accomplish. Very happy to see that this is possible, thank you for taking the time to respond. Do you think taking them all the way to seed in those tubs would cause them to herm? I'd like to avoid that if possible so I don't end up breeding with plants prone to herming.
I don't have many seeds of each variety, 12-24 seeds of 7 varieties from RSC. Some Thai, Lao, Iranian, and Himalayan varieties many of which are still quite ferrel or a little domesticated by ganja farmers from the region (very pure genetics). There's no way I'll get a complete look at each genepool with so few specimines. Given that, I'd like to be self sufficient in the future with my own seeds, and I'd rather not end up with a bunch of seeds from less that great parents if I can avoid it. Or at least pick from the best of the lot.
Maybe I'd be wasting my time? ...How did your trials turn out Rico?
