i agree i would just take the 1 and move on to outcrosses to landrace preferably semi feral. i think the skunk archetype(as nev would say) was a relic from the western china/north east iran/ northern afghan silk road type. the mexican side needs to be considered as well. garlic is the sulfur smell which is easier to find guerro is known to have these types or even the garlic bud ibl. aco gold was the final cross of the skunk 1 it would have had direct exchange with the nld afghan in the c gold/afghan hybrid. connecting that type of mexican back to nld silk road may give the haplotype looking for. another stratedgy would be the identify clone onlys which have the volatile high odor traits and introduce them into something skunky hoping for the recombo.That's some nice info coming in from TTS with a 10 female selection. With only 1 of the 10 females showing up skunky and the others sweet, candy, juniper, etc. this line may require large seed lot selections or more females than normal to find the skunky skunk plants.
The skunk#1 was bred from the ancestral skunk. It still has the colombian, narow leaf afghan and mexican phenotypes in it. Lots of hermies, kind of backs up sams very early story when he arived first in holland of how skunk#1s first form was made through accidental pollination (most likley from a hermi from one strain pollinating a stable plant from the other strain). That ancestral skunk looks exactly like what mad jag got off sam in 79/80 and grew out an took pictures of at the time.I think that NHS and Neville’s skunk should be mentioned if you want to try to breed it back, they both have some interesting skunk dna.
I also think that diesel and og/tk hold some old school skunk genes.
I think it’s very possible that Dave Watson just had bagseed. Maybe skunk was an heirloom bred in Mexico from Mexican and Afghan lines, his ohaze is Columbian bagseed, and what he sold Nevil was a rare Thai he thought wouldn’t sprout.
I spent years collecting and growing out Mexican bagseed (not the pretendica but the last of the Mexican when it was going away for me) and I used to think that there were lots of skunk genes that had gotten in there, but then I came to question Dave Watson more and my own nationalistic and racial biases, and it’s just as possible the skunk was in the Mexican bags first.
As far as ancient skunk archetypes, I definitely know that old forms come back, and I would love to see they are even older! But who knows?
An f2/s1 of Nevilles skunk or NHS or crossing them might show some serious old school skunks, and crossing them to your list pdizzle would be a neat attempt imo
Tk can give a good yield if you run her right I rip 5-6 oz per plant in 2 gallons with a 4 week veg.I am going to have to give the TK cut a spin and see what she is all about. Been offered her from a close friend who has nothing but words of praise about this cut, but never pulled the trigger to give her a spin in the garden to see just how she stacks up. The yields on the few OG plants I have grown are painfully low and frustrating and I never liked consuming them as much as I prefer the chemdog lines. With the smell changing over time, I wonder if running through TK S1 seeds from Nspecta and looking through them if the same skunk odor can be found again for old times sake. Anyone you know went through TK s1's and found anything that was superior to the original?
Once she is in full flowering 24/0 for a week or two take a lot of time off the cycle, tk will not drop pollen because of light cycles. Two lbs from an old 1000 hps is a benchmark to hit but a lb is kinda low, with a four week veg. But those lamps suck of courseTk can give a good yield if you run her right I rip 5-6 oz per plant in 2 gallons with a 4 week veg.
That's a nice pull from a OG plant. Well done bro! 2 gallon pot, 4 week veg, how far are they spaced apart and how many times do you top her and how much does she stretch in bloom?Tk can give a good yield if you run her right I rip 5-6 oz per plant in 2 gallons with a 4 week veg.
I've heard of New skunk being referred to so many times and I'm very curious. The way it's been referred to it sounds like an actual strain not just a collective name for the newer hybrids containing skunk genetics. I'm confused because I can't find new skunk in the cannalogue and I haven't ever seen it on the auction site. So is it an actual strain and how do you get it. Is it only available for certain people in the community. PEACE peeps.Hello triceratops,
I intended a micro grow since electricity became unaffordable. But I'll run them under hps anyway.
My SSH is almost ready and them U2 and The Cure are ready in a few weeks. I'll be running the seedplants of New Skunk next if all cuttings rooted succesfully. All are still standing up.
I'll be smoking them before Christmas and this was planned in an autistic manner lol.
Edit: oh one U2 may be starring with New Skunk as she is really taking her time.
I got them through the auctions, but she appears rarely.I've heard of New skunk being referred to so many times and I'm very curious.

Thank you for explaining that I really appreciate it. Can't wait for new skunk to appear on the auction site again.I got them through the auctions, but she appears rarely.
Sadly I could not push them to the limit as my electricity is too expensive. But I will not let the genetics go lost and even cross them with my keepers.
When recession is fixed, I’ll try again and have at least already one female NS keeper.
I run 9 in a 5x5 tent with 2 layers of trellis i top once around a foot tall and train through the netting. Tk has a decent stretch two her I normally flip at 30-32” and she finishes between 56-60”. I have most of the kush cuts OG, Tahoe, Mandelbrot, sr71 and TK and in my opinion TK is the best. Serious appetite increase that’s one way to know if you have the real cut of TK and not the fake. You will devour food lolThat's a nice pull from a OG plant. Well done bro! 2 gallon pot, 4 week veg, how far are they spaced apart and how many times do you top her and how much does she stretch in bloom?
