All of the plants are presexing, except pheno E. I can confirm 4 females(A,B,G,H)and 1 male(C) so far. Im leaning towards females for phenos D,F, and I. Pheno J is probably a male, but I should know for sure in a couple days.
Beautiful plants, I'm always impressed with your grows and the way you put your threads together.
Are you going to make any f2's? So far it's looking like your female/male ratio is leaning to the high female side (always a good thing). It would be interesting to see what the male's would test out at the lab for cannabinoids (if even possible). You probably wouldn't see much in volumes, but you should see ratios.
As far as testing them (males), I guess the question is when do you do it...pre-drop, when dropping, etc. And there's also the additional cost.
I know this is a test grow, but I'm sure your taking cuts. Just wanted to throw this out there before you culled any males.
Hi Tony,my 3 NH ladies before I have to move. I also have 2 Walkabout girls that I could flower. (3 male Walkabouts) All untested, but....what do you think? Interesting thought non the less
Thoughts...I think this is when you shoot first and ask questions later. If you have things in flower or are going to flower, why not.
Not knowing the complete pedigree of Sweet & Sour Widow, you at least know there is widow in it. The strain description says it's 70/30 Indica/Sativa with 8.3% THC and 10.5% CBD. The unknowns are what it was combined with, where the CBD is coming from, and the methods used in the breeding.
NH and Walkabout are mostly sativa, so you would increase that in the ratio and probably increase the THC and lower the CBD (hypothetically). As a tester, you are kind of venturing into the unknown, meaning this strain being a regular variety offers the opportunity to do M/F crosses with a variety high in CBD (Shanti and/or the CBD Crew may have more to offer or some more knowledge on this)
Edit: I didn't mean to take the thread sideways, I guess I was thinking outloud. The key purpose of this thread is testing the strain and so far you are doing that well.
Actually, I believe Shanti put that together in the past for specific peeps I think 07-08...Not sure on when, but he did & I'm jealous!Anyone out there ever cross NH with BW? Shanti, what do you think might result from cross breeding this strain?
