A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks
I live in Maine. I’m actually interested in beginning to breed strains. I’ve been searching around, finding decent landraces to begin with, as we have a huge problem with rot up here. Everyone is constantly getting it. I’m interested in creating a base hybrid that will do well with our high humidity, and then creating crosses off it to get strains more specialized to the area. The other factors to consider are flowering times, as it’s typically too cold up here in October to continue waiting for plants to finish. I currently do a similar job, as I’m employed at the Jackson laboratory, I develop new strains of mice to mimic human disease.
My curiosity is more with breeding, as well as how self pollination with colloidal silver will affect the genetics of the plant. I’m familiar with genetics, just more animal focused than plant. Currently, I’m looking at starting with Brazil Amazonian, with flowers fully in the rain forest, and crossing with an original afghani from canuk seeds to shorten flowering time slightly. Any ideas?
