Its nice to get a membership vs. Lurking stealth style. It has been a long fight for freedom with many sacrifices made in this state!
-Yes it has! And we lost a bunch of good men to the system along the way.
Looking forward to cooperatives and clone trading in the light of day
-Man clone trades would be sick if we can get that up and running. I actually have a strain I been trying to prefect myself for the last 4 years. Had to take time off of growing due to personal reasons, but I still got the seed stock to keep it going. I just need to stabilize it a little more. Maybe with the help of someone here, we can have success with it. The strain is a cross of 4 different genetics. The first cross I did was accidental and was a result of a single DJ Short Blueberry plant going hermie and impregnating my Skunk. The skunk was a gift from a older friend who has been growing the same skunk since the late 80's, early 90's. The DJ Short Blueberry was from an original full 10 pack ordered 17-18 years ago directly from Holland. I chose the best female out of the 5 I got from the 10 pack and it was very stable, which is lucky because DJ Short BB is know to be very unstable, at least back then. And very temperamental.
The second cross was also an accident (yeah I know lol) from a Grand Daddy Purp and a hermie Afghani ( cant remember the specific Afghani lineage though). This crossed happened about 9 years ago. About 5-6 years ago I knew I was going to have to shut down from growing after 2-3 more cycles for awhile. So I vegged and topped a few seeds of each the accidental crosses I had with the intention of creating my own strain from these 4 powerhouses. I put them in the tent last and had 3 of the GDP x Afghani cross and 2 of the BB cross. I puropsely stressed the Blueberry to force it to hermie and corss it with the GDP x Afghani. I got about 30 seeds from the plant. I have since been able to cross, inbreed and cross again to get a very purple/blueberry dom pheno that has hash and trich production on par with the Afghani line. Also the size of Afghani took on a role in making the buds much bigger, since a lot of Original BB plants didn't produce very well. I hope to refine the plant and maybe make it a staple in my new breeding projects to come. I hope to share this amazing plant with a few people and maybe even eventually get it into a dispo soon.
