My Ethos Lemon OG Haze Female & Nirvana Super Silver Haze Male

These F2 crosses  I made were  little disappointing at first, the first disappointment was  only 1 out of 3 plants had solid nugs, the other 2 had a lot of foxtails and all the buds were loose. I have not smoked much of the solid nugs yet, I want them to cure longer, but I have been smoking the foxtails for about a week in some pre-rolled cones I filled. At first I was a bit disappointed because it isnt a butt kicking smoke and then I remembered that isnt why a made the cross. I needed a smoke that didnt kick my butt, helped my ADD by making me focus on what ever I need to focus on and stimulated my creativity and that is exactly what it does. I absolutely see a F3 happening eventually but I wonder should I cross an F1 & a F2 for the F3 or cross two F2's for the F3?

        • I guess I should try the one with the firm buds and see how it is. Either way it will take some time to figure out which pheno I have and before I make the cross they didnt show any signs of being different until they were about 1/2 through flower. It will still be faster than growing a Landrace Sativa lol

        •  I'm with Jim on this one.

           While like ChAs420 said, it's your choice as to what you breed, to get an F3, you cross two F2's.

          • From my understanding When you make seeds and go forward in the generations your culling phenos out of the gene pool, what your talking about would be an F3 & is similar to a Bx, but technically you would have to use one of the original parents that made the line for it to be considered a Backcross.

             I don’t wanna write a page worth so I tried to keep it short. GL man

                • Is it possible to have a back cross that is not inbreed?

                • Always consider that you can pollinate one female plant with different pollens.

                  • We had a dachshund when I was a kid that proved that to me. Seems like every year she would have 4 little pups that looked just like her and then and one fuzzy looking cockapoo. But with seeds how would you know?
