Ok...i understand..Colloidal silver is the best way to retain certain genetics. It is selfing that single plant not back crossing.
Nothing wrong with backcrossing. F-2 is the tricky one. It will have the most different phenos. Anywhere from really good to really bad. It is great for finding things. Not a good thing if you plan to consume your plants. Too many could be crap.
Thanks..Yes of course keep me updated. Glad I could help. Purple is always cool to see. I am finding it more and more these days as genetics get really mixed up.
Do you have close to 13 hrs of daylight year around?
I am not sure from where i must start to reply ....That explains why you have so much going on LMAO.
Now for the bad news. Autoflowers are not going to do well in that amount of light. They like to have 16 to 20 hrs of light all the way through to fill out and produce. With that amount of light lots of regular strains will flower fine. Basically everything will autoflower there. Temps may be a problem at times but light is perfect for year around growing.
I know you have mostly Autoflower genetics. Pretty sure you mentioned photoperiod strains also. This also explains why you never lose your autoflower traits. As you move forward just concentrate on the very best weed with the fullest buds. Short plants are also something to look at with your height issues.
As long as the plants are put out small they will start flowering as soon as the mature. With trimming and bending you can keep them short enough to work.
Photoperiod strains are going to do better for you in the long run. It will have higher THC plus there will be more of it. As long as you stay away from pure sativas you can keep plants short enough. Hawaii basically has 4 growing seasons a year because of this. Lots of those plants are short because of a short life with no real veg time. So if you start your seeds indoors with 20 hrs of light. Just as soon as you move them outside they will go into flower. You can grow from seed outdoors too but it is best to give them a good start with lots of light so they can have some veg time.
From the looks of things. The plants you are growing don't even come close to the top of the wall. 1 to 2 foot plants with a 3 to 4 foot wall. Looks to me like they could be a foot or so taller. Starting photoperiod strains outside will also help them stay short. You may find that you need to do it to keep them short enough.
Don't worry about having to switch all your genetics around. As you breed for only the strongest weed. The photoperiod genetics will shine through. As you buy more seeds go with photoperiod strains not autoflower. You will be a lot happier with the outcome.
Sorry for not bring this up earlier. It was in the back of my mind you might be in a area like that. I should have asked to begin with. All the information we have exchanged is still all the same. I would just ignore any autoflower stuff you see. The only way to be sure they are autos now would be to grow them indoors anyway.
