1. So the question is do the majority of you out there find the advertised yields of strains: (please also include seed bank and growing nutes/medium/ experience)
A) very accurate
B) high
C) low
D) think it depends on the grower

2. Does the yield effect your decision on buying seeds?
3. Have you bought a seed because of high cbd/ flavors/ color that is a low producer to cross breed it with a commercial strain and if so did you find what you were looking for?
4. In your opinion what would be a great crossbreed from the plants you have grown and why?
5. If you bread an auto strain with a photoperiod strain would the plants in theory be a 50/50 split of auto dominant/ recessive trait and if so is there possibilities this could show up in the third or fourth generation in seedlings if you continued breeding with non auto strains?

D + medium, vegetative time and light source.
The best people to answer this question are the ones who grow using the Sea Of Green method, as that is the calculations used by seed producers.

2. Does the yield effect your decision on buying seeds?

No

3. Have you bought a seed because of high cbd/ flavors/ color that is a low producer to cross breed it with a commercial strain and if so did you find what you were looking for?

No, finding what you are looking for could involve germinating all the seeds(up to 5000 off one plant) you have made and bringing them to full harvest along with making a clone of each one so when you find what you are looking for you have a copy of the genetics.

4. In your opinion what would be a great crossbreed from the plants you have grown and why?

Brainstorm Haze
strain type Sativa: 90%; Indica: 10%
buzz upbeat, creative, motivating.
taste/Smell sweet/fresh, fruity
flowering time 70-80 days
parents (Land Race Thai (mother)) x (father Stargazer (Sensi Star x Warlock x AK-47))
yield yield 500-600g/m2 (1 1/2-1 3/4 oz./ft.2)
environment indoor/outdoor
Brainstorm Haze phenol type #3 Delta 9 labs (female) which had the best fragrance(thanks stargazer) and very nice yield.

Crossed with

Blueberry (indoor) Breeder PeakSeedsBC
Pure Strain
Type/subspecies*: Mostly Indica
Flowering period**: 8-9 weeks indoor
Potency: Very Strong
Growth Pattern: Medium height, one main bud with some low branching. Feed conservatively.
Breeders comment: Flavourful and colourful, classic favourite.
Challenging, not for beginners. Can be very sensitive to over-fertilization.

The blueberry(male) which sprouted with purple cotyledon leaves and developed an extremely thick stalk and branch formation.

I would be hoping to get the smell of the Brainstorm Haze with the yield and high. From the Blueberry I would hope to get the color, stalk thickness and stature.

5. If you bread an auto strain with a photo period strain would the plants in theory be a 50/50 split of auto dominant/ recessive trait and if so is there possibilities this could show up in the third or fourth generation in seedlings if you continued breeding with non auto strains?


Yes and yes. It should be noted that back crossing with a photo period plant will reduce the chance of having the auto gene express itself.
