Breeding from Feminized Clones? What happens if they are backcrossed? Hermies?

  1. I have searched far and wide, and only seem to get results about creating fems rather than breeding them.

    I would assume it could lead to hermies in subsequent gens but wondering what the community's experiences have been.

    I will be breeding with regular seeds from now on to be safe, just wondering if there's any way to carry on the fem'd clones I have right now before they flower - other than more clones.
     
  2. Clone them, Pollenate them, (requires a male or stored pollen) Flower them out and search for seeds.
    Feminized plants tend to spit a few seeds IME it's just part of the process to feminize them showing up late in flower. It's that last ditch effort to propagate.
    As long as it's just a few seeds late in flower they are ok to use. It's a plant that goes nuts and creates hundreds of seeds you want to trash.

    I had a strain of Blueberry that always gave back from 5 to 15 seeds like clockwork and they always grew true to the original plant. Saved her for me more then a couple of times early on in my grows when my cloning was failing more then hitting.

  3. Thanks!
     
  4. if you let them just ....go way past their harvest date

    then they will Rodalize serve themselves by one flower mutating to a male

    it takes much longer than normal

    best done from harvest simply leaves a branch gong until it grows a male thing ..lol

    good luck
