Hi Nite, great thread, or rather guide, I'm suprised this hasnt been stickied yet.
I noticed you're leaving out breeding terminology, but I do think that it could be helpfull so that peeps looking at seedbay, know what they are buying when buying S1s, rather than thinking they are buying F1s suitable for becoming P1s. Also a term I see a lot of newbies getting confused about that we use a lot here, (although I know it isnt in standard usage), "The Borg". Perhaps a run down of CFL, MH, HPS would be worthy additions.

I can't believe I left out The Borg! I'll fix that.

I've got the MH and HPS in there, but blew right past the CFL

The thing with breeding terminology, in all fairness, is that I have been growing for three years now, and I'm still not completely clear on it, so I have no way to begin putting those terms into easy to understand definitions.

Tell ya what though, how about I put those abbreviations in there with a link to the Breeding for Beginners sticky on the Breeder's Forums?

I'm even getting ambitious and thinking of Alphabetizing the glossary.

nah keep it all in one place Nite. Its really simple really. P1 = Parent plant. F1 = the result of 2 non related P1s. An F1 used to breed with becomes an P1 once it has kids. 2 P1s that are brother and sister create F2s. Each generation done using sister and brother after that adds 1 to the Fnumber. Add enough numbers to F and you get IBL. A parent bred with its own offspring makes Bxs. A hermie creating seeds without a partner generates S1s or Selfed plants, this is true whether the P1 to the S1s was a natural hermie or forced to hermie with chems. Although You'd have to sort out how to fit that into the glossary lol.

Um, yeah, ok, I've got all that, made perfect sense.

And if you believe that...

LMAO

I'll work on sorting it all out though, see if I can work it in.

As far as the stickiness goes, I've had a few people mention it, but I don't think there is a specific mod for Grower's Forum (none listed, at least), so

Seeing the same questions, about the same terms, so a bump seems in order :wink:

NiteTiger,
i ran into the Abbreviation KFB a few times and i don't completely understand the concept. I think it would be a good addition. Any idea where the method was first developed?
