Aww! :heart_eyes: It’s just a baby!

You could re-veg if it’s photoperiod.

Gold leaf feminized

Yup. If she’s a photo feminized, u can set light hours back to 18/6 and she’ll start growing foliage again. If an auto? It is what it is. Wont amount to very much but ull get some smoke

@Lnnicholas ,

First what light cycle was it on then? 12/12? Or veg? If it was long cycle that may be just one to sacrifice to the weed gods. It would be doing some sort of auto flower then…

Anyways, Thanks for the bait Currdogg. I usually hit them with pollen right about then. I have found that the plants will take pollen, ripen seeds, and revegetate all at once. It will not slow it down. You are waiting 6-8 weeks to get a flowering lollipop like that to reveg anyway. I have many times ran SISTER cuts from the same mom and found they revege the same with or without seeds. Here is a Durban x strawberry cough f1 that I pollinated with its brother right at Christmas. It has vegetated, with seeds. I have just enough time to harvest the seeds and replant the clone outdoor on Mother’s Day.

This usually happens to me when I get busy in the fall (harvest😜) and forget to bring my outdoor clones in for the long light. Ha.

If you don’t pollinate crank em up to 20 or 24on for 2 weeks. Then drop them to 18on. I have found giving them a clear long light signal helps them to transition into veg faster.

Yours is probably too small to do this, but I usually trim back the flower material (sans seeds scenario) to the main stems and leaves. If I want them to veg faster. Like pinching back basil or spinach that’s bolted. I have found this to cut the reveg time in half. If it’s early in flower sometimes you can reveg it like it never went to bloom. If you pinch back the floral grows. I cannot prove it, but my theory is if you remove the flowering parts you remove the lingering flower hormones faster. And stimulate new growth.

Here is another one. It has been Bansai since this past august first. It is in a 1.5” strawberry pot.
I is an irie genetics strawberry starburst that I pollinated with a dj short Flo male. I hit this one more recently with pollen so it has not reveged yet. But it is on 20on now and should reveg soon. I usually Bansai in 4” pots so the 1.5” this year was an experiment. I think it did pretty good.

Here was daddy Flo. My friend was doing Flo and I was there by chance the day he sexed this boy. I said that boy is coming home with me… ha.

@PurpNGold74, seems like a match made in heaven, right?

The irony is I am not popping any of my own seeds this year. Just the grow buddies will get some to try. This year I am trying some commercial crosses GG. I need a terpy winner. The GG in my humble opinion is great mold resistance, excellent trichomes, but meh on the terps. I am popping these this year to do a ruthless pheno hunt. Then I will work the winners back into my keeper lines. Looking for terps and mold resistance. Or the other way around. Ha

Great Lakes Genetics has some really wicked looking GG crosses. One of the cultivars works exclusively with that and bubblegum (working more strains into those lineups).

He had quite a few GG crosses that really grabbed my attention. And its NEVER stood out to me. Soso smoke, soso yields, soso terps… a few have looked REALLY good but that piney ‘good weed’ smell has gotten old to my nose.

Thanks for tip, I will check it out. GG isn’t my favorite either. But I respect the mold resistance. I do all my yielding outdoor (near seattle) so mold resistance is the #1 trait I select for. I figure I can always amp up the trichomes and flavor, but there is nothing worse than having your buds get moldy. Here it’s like once Labor Day rolls by, the morning dew will turn lesser strains to mush sticks. Right about the time your bud starts looking like a cover glam shot.

I hate to admit it, but I almost feel like I enjoy making seeds more than flower these days. Trimming is always a PITA.

I completely understand. I enjoy the thought experiment that comes with breeding almost as much as smoking. N growing had become more addicted then blazing most strains a year or 2 ago.

Safe to say ILGM haha

What are yall using to get seed for yourself now days

Depends on what youre looking for in the smoke

How to answer that, as I’m growing I would like to pollinate one bud on my plant of choice at that time, back in the early 80s I had pollen, we in the 2022 I don’t have none, but I’m old school as I’m 63, so I still believe in generations of my plants. What do we do now days

Ahh. When im about to make some seeds. I prefer to drop a solid amount of regular seeds to sorta phenohunt a good male. Want him strong fast (not too fast to flower tho :wink:) and especially pungent. The funkier the better. Some even find males that produce trichs… tho ive never been so lucky.

Isolate ur choice stud. Wrap him in a bag, n shake that baby batter loose. Then u have options. U can pollenate a whole female plant… or u can get a paint brush and select branches to dust.

That answer ur question?
