My site 4 are popping up like mushrooms now, eight so far. Planning on intercrossing them and using the site4 pollen also on a few other plants. They look like normal cannabis so far as small seedlings. I was hoping they looked different from the moment they broke soil, so I could have them growing in the open next to chili seedlings. Guess they will change appearance as they grow. If not, I will nevertheless try to select for phenos that look the most different.
The c99xabc are one week ahead of the site 4. These look healthy and just like any sativa hybrid plantlet. They are put straight under 12/12 just to sex them and produce seeds as soon as possible.
Planning on using site4 pollen on them if no male shows up for an intercross between the c99xabc.

I would say layered trellis for the ABC as the stems do not seem like they will support much weight, but I will have to see once she gets closer to harvest time.
The first two cotyledon look like cannabis but the first set of tru leaves do not. I have used plant ID apps on the ABC and it does not register as cannabis until the first two weeks into flower. Once the ABC starts to throw pistols out, it’s clearly Cannabis, so I wouldn’t grow it in the open if it could endanger your safety or security.
Best of luck of your pollinations!!
I was going to work this line with some OG but it appears that Humboldt CSI is working a Triangle Kush x ABC line and selecting for the ABC leaf with the OG Kush smell and flavor so I will be picking those up once they drop and just continue their work with my own selections of their stock.
Just copied these posts from miasa's thread.
A trellis is what I'm thinking about as well. It would be nice if a feral landrace could lend its pheno of beady buds or pure calyces to the abc, along with a vine like structure. Trained on a trellis amongst climbing plants it could be masked pretty well, I suppose. That is of course purely hypothetical at this point, I would never do that until the hybrid is totally different in appearance and unrecognizable.
I must point out that neither would I plant the abc seedlings openly among chili seedlings, even though the abc clearly looks the most different as a young plant.
It will take many years of a joint effort before we have this plant looking totally different from the current well known appearance, and by that time this variety will be so familiar that it will nevertheless be recognized..
It's funny though, that the apps you've tried don't identify abc until two weeks into flowering!
