Interesting article. Thanks.
Just like with humans you will never get 2 alike. Thanks for breaking it down for me.A F1 hybrid will have different phenotypes which will make plants differ in flowering time for instance. Say you have a 100% sativa x a 100% indica; those seeds will be never uniform. One will be more indica, the other more sativa.
I ASSUME that you must bottleneck the genetic variety in the mother and father first to get a more uniform F1 hybrid. Though I have never done this or read anything about it. <- this may be incorrect information
Wow ok. So they threw some stuff together, said good enough and sold it lol. Instead of stabilizing it into a F1 Hybrid. It's second hand doo doo water. Or did I look that up wrong.
But with making your own strain you take a pure landrace first. Out of those dozen(?) phenotypes you start picking your desired treats and inbreed those to get a generation seeds of the phenotype you selected.I have always heard that a f1 was 50% mother and 50% father
but in fact it's rubbish there are strain that dominate the others
it does not mean anything the% before having tried the cross
for exemple i have try a mother of diesel X 4 mango haze inbred guys all seeds
i have try and give to friend the mango haze dominated in bloom and in taste the diesel mother totaly dispears
the g13skunkXtangie i have try (only one girl) was totaly a clone of the mother no sign of the tangie
this storie of % X cross = that is no sense

You might want to backcross with the original mother (or father) to get the desired treat in it again.
But all this is very new to me as I used to buy female seeds and only started regular seeds for a year now.
Now I am confused..’IBL can do the same as landrace.
Now I am confused..’
Landraces are open pollination. We generate an inbreed line out of those by only reproducing the desired treats.
So IBL are just selected phenotypes of a much greater diversity, which has been lost in the IBL offspring.
Does Europe still have landraces worth looking for, or better off traveling further through Turkey?
Ha I mean actual wild ones,Does anyone still have any that haven't been "dutched".?
Watch Arjans videos, he sent them hermi rich fem seed to grow.
He's the only person to go to mountains,get seed , lock them away and sell a Dutch seed line like amo.
Not sure about nederweit , but rarely see it so must be shit.
Ha I mean actual wild ones,
Like in India, Afghanistan, Siberia. I wonder if Europe has still some growing in the wild naturally.
Could be low in thc but high in cbd.
