I'm fairly new to the grow scene. I picked up some Animal Mints BX1 and Triangle Mints.
I just grew out 2 of 18 beans of the AMBX1 and they were both male.
One was a real looker, and even though I have never chucked pollen, I made room on the other side of the house to continue on through flower so that I could collect the pollen. I figured it would be a shame to let a male with beautiful branching, nicely spaced nodes, and a lemon/mint/gas smell go to waste. To my surprise, he was a he/she. I feel put out.
The other AMBX1 was super short, bushy and the node spacing was really tight. The leaves were smallish and he had more of a veg smell, so I cut him down and tossed him.
I'm currently growing out 2 of 10 Triangle Mints and it appears to me that one is looking like it may turn out to be a male, but the other is definitely showing female preflowers. I'm excited by the prospect of dusting up a couple of flowers with some pollen from the other Triangle Mints just so I some more beans to run and see if I find anything worth keeping. It'll be slow going because I also have some other strains going as well (Gagegreen, Symbiotic, Archive, Exotic Genetix, Dankonomics, DNA).
I have a male and female Mimosa from Symbiotic Genetics and they smell fantastic just in veg! I'm looking forward to painting on some pollen to a few flowers of the Mimosa and Triangle Mints.
Shame about the AMBX1. I've been reading on IG that they can be unstable. I have great veg and flower environments set up, so I'm not sure if they got stressed somehow, or if the cookie just flakes out and herms. Of the 18 that are left, I'm sure to find a few girls. I'll run them forever and a day in every possible media with various lines of nutrients, just because I can.
