Ok, I think I found the male I want to use...Maybe...Im not sure about this little project really....
But anyways... A super short and stout Larry X GSC has proven male....
Now I have Fire OG tall lanky so/so producer ,strong super pungent flowers..(maybe this one)
Ghost OG same thing long lanky yet to flower in my room..(maybe this one )
J-1 long lanky also , huge producer ,( not sure what kinda cross it would make ??)
La Con. short stubby , huge producer for the size Ive done..(maybe this one)
Train Wreck..long lanky and major producer in its first run for me..( once again don't see how this would cross?)

So the point here is now what??
Plan A: put male outside in the garden to continue flower to get pollen in the sacks.
Plan B: put male back in veg to go out later in the year when
Plan C : clone him and mark it and try this whole deal later when i know whats up....

I'd say roll with C till you're really sure.

Learn the plants you have and make sure they are right for breeding.

@ozzydiodude
thats no fun....
no seriously...what do you mean by that...?
I dont really want to mess with the J1..its pretty stellar as is and already a mixed breed...
But the lanky OG strains...now thats where I was leaning...

IMO before a female should ever be breed the "breeder" should have run many clones for her, under many different stresses to be sure she has no quick inclination to hermie(female throw male flowers). By running the clone under different conditions the grower/breeder know her ways and what brings out the best or worst of the plant. Only females without the quick to hermie gene should be breed.

ok...so the fire OG has been through hell and back from my learning curve at the newest spot with temps and bugs and poweroutages etc...Its a solid strain in those regards to have never seeded..(yet) for me..
I got the cuts from a friend that has run her for last 4-5 years.. I cannot attest to his herm rate per say...
I got what you mean though....
thanks for the info

Surfinc, you're just making seed for your own stash right? You have to make the original F1 cross to start pheno hunting for the result you want. I say, make a branch of seed on each of your girls using your chosen male (just a branch, don't pollinate the whole plant), and then start hunting the seeds for your "dream" pheno. These are for your own use right? No plans to vend right? If that's the case, make the seed you want.

It's all a crap shoot, as you can't control how the genes combine in the seed, all you can do is grow them and hope for the results you want. If you link to my blog I'm right now talking about how to use the bread bag method of pollination, maybe it will help you. link is in my sig.
