Highland Thai And Kerala

Sour Kush is my fav. (Sour Diesel x Hindu Kush) Grown outdoors or in a greenhouse. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Although that's ignoring things like Chem Dawg, Real Sour Diesel, Sweet haze, Petrolia Headstash, Pot of Gold and many many more :v:

Pot of Gold runs a super close 2nd though. I really love the PoG. It's sour for my tastes and gets me oh so happy stoned.

Ok maybe the PoG is my fav...

I'm having difficulties deciding!!! :wink:

Maybe if I could run all the strains I listed + some Thai and some Nigerian I could make myself happy. :spliff:

Btw the laws in my area are fine...My city has Cannabis listed as the lowest police priority. You literally have to be caught smoking a joint in broad daylight in the middle of the city to get in trouble for it. And even then the cop could very well just run you off from smoking in public...I can grow 90 plants and have 100 sq ft legally...That's pretty chill. Now having a mountaintop covered would be ideal but that's the future. :spliff:

San diego sucks though. I'm not that south. + I'm not a huge dispensary fan so I don't mind cities closing them down. Most of them were spreading shit ass genetics around anyways + selling their products at hugely inflated prices.

Pretty plants... I'm such a sucker for pure sativas, with their long limbs and slinky good looks... and beautiful highs! :wink:

Are you doing an open pollination or will you be selecting?

I have around 20 Highland Thai and maybe 30 Kerala.

I will take clones from the Highland Thai and use the male

Kerala to pollinate everything. Then, I will flower the clones

and produce Highland Thai seeds. This way I will walk away

with pure Kerala, pure Highland Thai seeds and a nice hybrid

of the two. The only plants that will be culled are sick looking

plants. I will try to keep as many plants as possible. Later on,

I may try and do some selecting work. That will probably be

with the hybrid that I want to create.

Sounds cool, will be interesting to watch :(

Are you looking to stabilise the hybrid then, or will that depend on what your cross is like?

I will grow a few of the hybrid and grow another secret breed with them and cross them all together.

The secret breed will be the male plants in this future hybrid grow. This way I will walk away with more

of my special breed and another hybrid. This plant will be like a female hybrid of Highland Thai(F)xKerala(M)

crossed with a male of my secret breed. This secret breed by the way is a pure sativa hybrid of high caliber.

I am pretty sure that when I create this second hybrid using all the sativas breed in my collection that it will

be something worthy of anyone's collection. I will probably reveal the identity of my secret breed only after

it's all said and done. I don't want someone out there thinking wow, Corky1968 has a good idea and then go

and beat me to it. Once I create it and prove that I did it first it won't matter. Cause people really do only

remember the original crosses and breeds. The knockoffs are forgotten easily in time.

Oh cool, a 3 way hybrid.

Do you need to stabilise the original cross before you make the new cross with your secret breed and stabilise that, or can you just go straight to stabilising the final 3 way?

Or are you not going to bother stabilising it? ;)

I don't know an awful lot about breeding, but I'm trying to learn :(

Well Marijuana Botany by Robert Clarke is a very good book to buy.

I just bought the Cannabis Breeder's bible by Greg Green.It's very

good. I recommend that you get both both and you'll have some

good headway into breeding.

As for my hybrids,etc I will stabilize the first hybrid after it's all said

and done as well as the second hybrid. Yes, it would be better to grow

bunch of the first hybrid, then stabilize them. Pick the best for creating

the second hybrid. Only I don't want to wait forever to create my dream

plant. Since it will take anywhere from 5 to 7 months to finish growing

and breeding pure sativa plants. I don't want to grow until they reach the

F4 or higher stage, before crossing it to my secret breed. If I did that I

would have to wait close to 2 years just to cross my stabilized plant of

my Highland Thai X Kerala hybrid with my secret breed. I don't want

my seeds to die of old age. Cause then I would cry. Once I have fresh

seeds and they are stored in a dark container with a little rice for a

dessicant then I will do the stabilizing work.

I believe that good breeding is having great genetics and a fine eye at what

is going on around you. For example: take cooking for instance. Off topic, I

know. But give ten different people the same kind of pasta, the same water,

spices, sauce and I can promiss you that you'll notice that the cooks are just

as important as the ingredients. Some will be better at cooking. I believe

that breeding is like that. Keep reading online and in books then practice and

practice some more. My warning to you is that they say smoking cannabis

is not addicting. Breeding on the other hand is my Achille's Tendon. I can't

stop thinking about it.

Good Luck 2 You

Hah, yeah, I just recently started storing my seed properly... I think that's partly what has me wanting to do it actually, sorting through a ton of accidental seed from a previous grow :wacko: I'm growing out 5 of them atm and the plants look tremendously healthy... really enjoyed it, even though it was just an accident.

All the different aspects of plant breeding really fascinate me, I can see how it would be addictive. Thanks for the recommendations! I wouldn't order books like that online though, so will have to hunt them out in a shop I guess :rofl:

Best of luck with your endeavour man, I hope it all goes to plan for you. Will be watching :crybaby:

Corky wouldn't you say good breeding is also letting people know what the genetics are?

I find that hiding your genetics is more commercialism than breeding.

Sorry to be the peanut gallery here. I do enjoy your posts and don't wish to detract from you here.

Well, the hiding is commercialism, but the breeding is still breeding, and he'll tell us after, so what's the problem? :stoned:

I don't really have a problem with people wanting to sell seeds personally.

I don't have a problem with it either honestly and like I said I'm not trying to detract from his thread by asking that question. You can sell seeds without hiding the genetics for 2 reasons. A you can create a bunch of F1's to sell (which is what MOST seed breeders do these days) so when you create F2's you have a wide variety of seeds not just the one you thought you had in the F1's. And 2nd with genetics the way they are who is to say that someone COULD create the same seeds. Knock offs are always knock offs.

Also where do you see that the secret breed will be released at a later date?

Regardless my intent is not to change Corky's thinking or ways I was just asking a question. :stoned:

He said so here :-

"I will probably reveal the identity of my secret breed only after

He just wants to get there first :stoned:

Yodel and Eri: Guys, guys::bag:: Please don't get upset, etc. about

the identity of my secret breed. I do want to clarify before things go too far.

I've read too many threads that just go off topic and crazy. I don't want that

to happen here.

1. If what I was doing was in any way commercialism I would certainly not be

revealing how I'm going to breed my male Kerala to my female Highland Thai.

Then move on to my secret sativa for creating my dream plant. I'm pretty sure

that most commercial breeders out here would not reveal their breeding ideas

to the public. Also, to date I have NEVER sold a seed.

For example: Imagine calling up Sensi Seed Bank and asking them exactly how

they created let's say their Jack Herer,etc. Or, calling up let's say Serious Seeds

and asking them how they created their Ak-47. I have a feeling that most if not

all commercial Seed Banks would tell you "IT'S All A SECRET SORRY."

2. My conscious is very clear. I did post earlier in post # 36 of this thread that I will

probably reveal the identity of my SECRET BREED. Just know that there are too

many old breeds out there that have been lost due to the breeder keeping the all

their formulas to success a secret. I will not let that happen. In good time, it will

be revealed.

3. I can promise the world that when my Dream Plant gets created and grown.

That I will probably post it for the world to see and the formula that created it.

But, that is a going to be a while before that happens. Maybe, you too can

breed something else in the meantime.

Ok enough 4 now, time to burn another Lebanese. Have a nice day to all.

Right on man sorry for side tracking your thread. What I was getting at is what you said in #2 about strains being lost because breeders hold on too tightly to their formulas.

And sorry for not seeing that you were going to release the name at a later date. I have dyslexia so sometimes I miss stuff :yep::D

Happy blazing.

Maybe, it's all the cannabis around in this place that makes us say weird things at time.

I'm not perfect, but I do try and proof-read what I type before the edit option leaves.

It's so easy writing something and/or and saying something that is not what you meant

or gets taken the wrong way. Formulas get lost cause the breeder gets too old or gives

up. I still have many years ahead and will write everything down. So as not to let memory

cloud the facts at a latter date.

Don't worry, this will be a long road to my goal though. Do have a nice day.

Chow 4 now, Yodel.
