Baby's Breath seed project

Two heads here. Greetings from the swamps of Southern Ontario and a special hello to all the old friends from the Overgrow days.

I noticed Stoner 133 grew out some Baby's Breath seed this year but couldn't find out how it turned out for him. I would PM but I don't have enough posts (and likely won't - I won't be a frequent visitor the way I was with Overgrow. I also have an unread PM but can't access it for the same reason. Anyone looking to contact me, please reply to this thread).

Anyway, it's been two seasons now since we last grew our Baby's Breath clone and embarked on the Baby's Breath seed project. Last year was pretty good but not great. The herb was good but not as good as the original and we got barely enough herb to last till this year's harvest.

For seed this year we used seed from the two best plants from last season. The good news is that so far the quality seems to be excellent - perhaps as good as the original Baby's Breath. Quantity won't be huge but, again, probably just enough.

I have a few harvest pics which I'll upload as soon as I figure out the process here at icmag. Mainly I'm interested to know how Stoner133 did and anyone else who ended up with Baby's Breath seed (Sorry about you getting the hempy version Wotamess... though that is the only offspring that consistently showed the beautiful magenta pistils)

OK, I guess I can't attach images, probably because I don't have enough posts. Check my gallery if you want to see how the harvest day buds looked.

Cheers Esbe. Thanks for posting my pics and thanks for the update on Stoner. I'll look him up.

Mr.Smoke - yep, all the plants in these pics are from the same strain - one of two favourites from last season. It turns out the seeds were the product of self-pollination. We had all female with the odd male flower at the branch base. We plucked the ones we saw but assumed our crop would be littered with seed but so far we've only found the odd seed.

If I get enough posts for PMs, I would be happy to share some seed from the original BB seed project (two seasons back, no seeds left from last year and probably very few from this year).

Esbe, I can't attach pics yet but I have posted a bunch of pics to my gallery from 2003, 2005 and 2006 (2004 was flooded out). There are a few there that show the beautiful colours in the original Baby's Breath. Post any that you like!

Our paths have crossed again, good to see you old friend.




The seeds came from your '05 season. I started them in early June, 4 germination's were grown out 'till mid July when I applied the training.

The first male showed about that time and I was eagerly watching the remaining plants for flowers. Late August, two more males make an appearance and the first female preflower on the last remaining. I was a little concerned about getting skunked, but luck was with me.

I kept the early male aside and pollinated a branch of the Baby's Breath in mid September. Several of our friends have expressed interest in checking it out.

Turns out, my pollen control leaves something to be desired, I have also managed to lightly pollinate my Planck with the early flowering Baby's Breath.





The Baby's Breath was harvested yesterday, got them hanging now.

They sure smell good, fruity. They should be dried and ready for a toke test in a week or so.

Great to hear from you as well Stoner. Good timing too as you just brought in the Baby's Breath yesterday. Hopefully those seeds will be viable. The Baby's Breath offspring are definitely later than the original - early male pollen may help bring earlier maturation next year.

Keep me posted. I look forward to a smoke report! Any other strains from this year?

Thanks for posting those pics esbe. If anyone is curious the top two are Baby's Breath, the bottom is cured BB and the second last pic is the BB seed project from 2006 - the source for this year's seed.

Yours were later flowering as well, interesting. I attributed it to the 5 degree latitude difference, my long Summer days extend well into late August.

They were helped along by a fine Indian Summer, some minor frost damage, but they took it in stride. I found them frozen stiff one morning.

They shared space in garden with Planck. This was the last group shot, Baby's Breath is right rear.

Still here, off and on anyway. The other head and I ended up with a little under a lb. each after losses due to mold. As the Baby's Breath Seed Project matures later than the original, we were affected by a frost and mold setting in on some of the largest buds. Oh well, should make for a lot of bubble this winter.

I was in Toronto yesterday purchasing seed to add to next year's garden. I got Belladonna (Paradise Seeds) from Sacred Seed and Thai Rain (Doc Bush) from the Seed Exchange. If any one has a grow/smoke report on either of these I would appreciate hearing it.

If Stoner is out there - how's the Baby's Breath smoke?

Nice to hear from you I learned a lot from your grows on OG.

I use swamp/marsh growing to start my seeds in a mini-green house in swamp/marsh. Great security, I took a lot of ideas and experience from your thread at OG.

"Knowledge is power" PEACE
