I now have rooted cuttings from the Archive clones...
And have decided to put several of those plants into flower this weekend.

@Frankster you know auto breeding so I'm hoping you can answer this. Photo x auto gen 1 how likely are the seeds to be auto. I'm hoping not very as I'm personally not the biggest fan I need control 🤣🤣

From our prior conversation, thought I would share this information here with everyone... The other information to this puzzle.
"Its an unintentional cross of Skywalker Ghost x Triangle Kush (photo) x Pineapple Express (auto)."

You said it was (photoperiod) pollen onto the auto female... This IMO, is the highest likely hood of carrying the trait, so usually 50% or higher... Could be even 7-8/10 with the right strain. Also, they will tend to be more like the Auto mother that they grew on...

But when you cross an auto onto a photo-period, something rare happens.... It's makes fewer % autoflower plants that are more photoperiod (traits) usually bigger, usually higher potency, usually more numbers of leaves, especially with a sativa. (depending on the photoperiod), but only a few of them will have the trait, (maybe 1 in 7/10) and those are the one's I'm really interested in isolating. Especially resulting from really funky elite strains. Plus, doing so this way might result in fewer auto seeds, but adds photoperiod stability to the resulting photoperiod seeds. Once these strains (photoperiod w/autoflowering genes) go into flower, or flipped, it's hard to knock them out again, and they can be huge plants if vegged a long period.

That's been my experience with crossing genetics of this variety anyhow, I thought it might be useful information to some.

Some of the Early Miss Auto.

Also that part that I was trying to convey to you, in your case. Because there's a high likelyhood that those plants (yours) will carry much of the auto's traits, you can judge by the leaf sets, and how the leave sets appear, auto traits. If they look auto, or they look sorta photo, (and looking for some distinct features of the specific photo in question) then back cross some of your photoperiod offspring, back into the auto from cousins, sisters, brothers, and find the stable spot, find where the balance lies, between the rudy, and the essence of (photoperiod) your trying to infuse into your hybrid. There is certainly a balance to be had, doing it from either end, and that's what needs to be balanced correctly.

I try to have this in line by the f2 state, that way your f3's will be uniform. It's difficult to accomplish, because you need to infuse good pheno/terpene traits also. Getting your stinky on target. That's why the backcross is mostly a pheno hunting thing, it's critical. IMO, the stinky can disappear from a strain pretty quickly if your not making good selections, especially with a male. I also think keeping males in the lines is important, they contain key genetic traits. So if I fem, I only do it one generation, then re-infuse. Usually if you've only got one starter seed, your potential is always in there, if it's solid genes, it just might need to be propagated out again. Takes more than one generation to tease the best pheno's out again.

If balanced correctly, you really can get pretty impressive results, and the rudy will be far more potent, large, and tends to add much better complexity and character, density to the results.
