Help with seeds

Discussion in 'Advanced Growing Techniques' started by ca outlaw tc, Nov 30, 2011.

  1. Grew a really nice outdoor crop this year. I really like the strains I ended up with. I got a few seeds. Not many. Most likely due to some kind of stress since there wasn't any males or hermies in my garden. My question is. How can I continue these strains? I don't wanna end up growing any hermies. Is there a way?
     
  2. usually not going to work, "bag seed" as its sometimes called mostly never turns out any good, there are some exceptions like chem dawg but not many so dont plan on it working - if you planted a bag seed and you got this plant then you are lucky it didnt have many seeds

    if you know someone who grows have them make you a clone and plant it outside when its a few weeks old in early june under a dome to keep it warmer and like my uncles neighbor you could get 17lb off of 1 plant that he kept LST'ing to keep from going over the fence and it was as long as his garage about 3 ft tall all growing sideways but it was some good stuff
     
  3. First off, the OP said nothing about bagseed. Second, you are dead wrong about bagseed -- "bagseed" is simply a seed that the owner does not know the genetics. It could be anything, so you definitely cannot make any generalizations about bagseed other than it is an unknown factor. It's kind of like the word "orphan" -- are orphans more likely to be athletes, or bums, or opera singers, or tall or fat or red-headed? There's nothing about being an orphan that has anything to do with this.

    And if you know that "bagseed" is Chem Dawg then it isn't bagseed...

    17 pounds off one plant? I'm gonna borrow one from Rumple for this:

    I caught a fish thissssssssssssss big!

    To the OP, with an outdoor grow there is always the possibility of pollination from someone else's grow upwind. Some strains will spawn a few seeds without pollination, it's a survival technique to pass on the genes as the unpollinated plant is reaching the end of its life it might spawn a few seeds that are essentially "clones" of the mother. But you won't know until you grow 'em. To continue the strains grow them out and see if you have any males to pollinate the females with. You also could pick one or more females and make them mothers for clones.

    Worst comes to worst is that you won't be able to continue those strains, good news is that there are tons of great genetics in the seedbanks to choose from.

    Lol good 1 lol. I just didn't wanna end up making a mother out of one of the seeds and clone off it and maybe end up with a bunch of hermi clones and fuck up a whole indoor crop or even worse a whole outdoor crop with hermies
     
  5. you are right about it making seeds that are a "clone" of the mother this can happen and usually if the seed looks good and you didnt see pollen or something like that anywhere its probably good - you should just have a back up just in case, because it would suck if it turned out herme


    I think that chem dawg was a bag seed, it was one of the genetics that made og kush and since it was a "bag seed" it is the reason that og kush was a clone only for a while before someone figured out the seeds, or got it to seed and not be herme

    from what I was told chem dawg was a seed that was crossed with something else I cant remember now but chem dawg was just what the person that bought the bag was told it was and found a seed in it, crossed it with something and ended up with what was called og kush, plant number 91 turned out to be the best one and it was cloned and that was the only way to get og kush until someone figured out how to get it to seed properly

    I was told this by someone I really trust whose name I cant say because he works in the industry in cali and I dont want to have to ask him if I can use his name and all that crap, but he is someone who owns a really big dispensary in oakland so he knows about these things

    Lol toastybiz. I have seen some 10-14lb plants online though so it really isn't that crazy to think someone managed a 17lb plant. Not sure it happened because false numbers get thrown around all the time but would make for a nice picture. Here is one of those beasts from humboldt I was talking about (you probably have already seen it around).

    I have seen bigger plants over on other forums but this is all I could find now.
