Breeders take all kinds of notes on their males, from the scent of stem rubs to structure to the time they start to flower, to whether they have trichs on male flowers or not, etc. But ultimately, using them and growing out the next generation, comparing them to each other, is the only way to know if you have an outstanding male.

I have not done any breeding beyond pollen-chucking, but I intend to, this year or next. I have an intensely lemon line, but it's from about 12 years ago, and the potency is not up to modern standards. The goal is to kick up the potency while keeping the level of limonene up.

nice

same mouse pad
Haha yea my room is a disaster I literally sit at my computer desk to roll up, the desk and computer will have to be removed for the 4x8 to fit… the door already won’t open more than 3/4 because the desk is right there and it’s butted right up to the 5x3 lol

That’s probably how I’ll start, small scale maybe 4 plants at a time total 3 females 1 male to cross with all of them

This next run I think I’ll try the colloidal silver just to start to learn unless I can find some pollen somewhere that’s worth using just want to pollinate one bud on each plant and save the seems then try them the next season

Anyone have a specific brand of colloidal silver they use?

Lol back room is an entertainment room that guests come over to, and is also getting upgrades, I used to have the tent in there when I first got it, the utility room is connected by open doors directly to a 40’x40’ crawlspace (dry, heated, all concrete with insulated walls, no windows) the utility room is where the 4x8 is currently where the vegetable tent will be, so the utility room itself is 20x15 and the utility room is about 35x15 but also has a wood stove in it that we use when it really gets cold and that room cooks lol. Yes I went through that when I had the tent there, and that’s why I won’t put another one in there haha

This would be directly across from the tent about 10’ away lol. Then the other side of that room

Was standing in the middle of the room when I took the pics it’s a large room but gunna have a dinner table, 80” tv, multiple chairs and bean bag chairs etc lol,

Yea I can walk out of the basement right into the backyard, only 5 steps up

Last pic you can see the bricks from the wood stove in the bottom, that’s how close the tent would be to the wood stoveView attachment 1323213View attachment 1323235View attachment 1323234

Oh damn, my wife wants a long haired red Shepard, personally I want a pure black Shepard head to toe. Most likely those will be our next 2 dogs we’d get them at the same time though, these dogs are spread about 8 years apart in age youngest being 5 the cockapoo off to the right, the one in front is ginger (year and a half) then Big Ben (9) behind her and my old girl Daisy closest to the wall (13)

We bring them everywhere I live by the Great Lakes, (I’m 5 minutes from the beach) I go out swimming 2-3x a week and bring a dog for a swim each time they love it lol

It was only $150 on Amazon! Kids lost their minds I didn’t tell them it was coming I set it up and blew it up and then brought them down they flipped out haha didn’t come out for like 6 hours then slept like rocks haha

If you buy one make sure it’s the one for 3-8 year olds it’ll hold I think 250lbs total 120 single person max I believe
