So what'a ya' think?

  1. Hypothetically, say you've got a nice, green, bushy third generation female growing. Of which, as a new sprout, it produced a second, tiny, twin sprout, growing off the same embryonic tap root system. This tiny sprout, now growing totally unattached from the main plant's stalk, resembles at first glance, simply a lower most branch of a heavily branched plant.
    Here's the rub. This separate twin, is, unlike the all - female main plant, showing definite male pollen bells.
    As the breeder, you already know the plant's genetic background. Say you then plan to make a cutting of the male twin as the bells start getting closer to opening. Preserving the cutting in water, and moving it to a secluded ( atrium ) where the shed pollen can be collected. Selectively pollinating a viable, lowest most branch of the main female plant.
    I'm curious what characteristics any subsequent off spring would express? A propensity for hermaphroditic tendencies? A higher ratio of females, since it's technically from a self-sexing female? Or, more likely male off spring?
     
  2. Self Rodelization "will" carry over the hermi genetics to a figure of 50/50% or 70/30% chance, chemically induced hermaphrodisme of two female plants and a stable feminized strain will not to the tune of 97 to 99.9% chance of a feminized seed.

  3. The interesting part about this situation is that while the "sucker" is showing all male gender - no pistils - the main plant is 100% female. Neither is showing any signs of being hermaphrodite. The male sucker is starting to form up a cluster of bells. The main female plant should begin entering full flowering within the next couple weeks.
    We'll see what the future holds.
