f 1 pheno cannabis seeds

A- We breed for seeds to have the most stable and true outcome. We incorporate as many dominate genes as we can, to insure your breeding project will carry with it ,the traits you wanted to pass down to the next cross. We know that this will mean our strains might have more "knock offs" than the next guy, but like TreeTown says "You can can copy, but you can’t replace the original". For this reason we don’t release any strain crossed by itself from another bank other than landraces, and banks that are not releasing stock anymore.

A- F1’s are the best way to be able to pick a individual genetic pheno. F3 and above packs will exhibit a similarity that we were ideally breeding for. Seeds of a F1 cross, of lets say Kush #1 (Hindu Kush x Afghani #1) ideally in theory, would exhibit to have 25% mostly Hindu Kush phenos, 50% evan mix (Kush #1) phenos, and 25% Mostly Afghani#1 phenos. This gives you 3 Phenos to individual and pick from to suit your needs, for your breeding project. Over 80% of all seed stock sold by most company’s is mainly F1 stock.

Why are all of your "Breeder Basics" packs F1’s?

Dominate and Recessive traits whats that mean?

So do you breed for Recessive genes or dominate and what’s that mean for me?

Pheno, whats that?

A- Put simply, a F1 is the result of the final parent crossings 1st seed set. The F2 would be the seeds from the F1 crossed together , and so on. A F1 will have both parents represented in the seed stock. A F5 will have little variance, very uniform, and very similar to the parent line. A IBL stands for In Breed Line . This is when over 90% of all seeds share the same traits, and growth patterns. So in short F1’s will give you some variety in phenos, and a F5 will give you very similar plants. Beyond F5’s and F6’s you start to find that sometimes genetic redundancies, and loss of vigor happen. We try to only create up to F1’s to F3’s for this reason, and to insure that you have a stable seed backup.

Sativa/Indica Differences
There are two main varieties of Cannabis found in the world: Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica. Cannabis sativa is a large “pine-tree like” plant with light green foliage. It is indigenous to Mexico, Columbia, Thailand, India, and Africa.

Cannabis Indica on the other hand is a smaller plant with wide, dark green foliage. It matures earlier and produces more potent, fatter, resinous flowers. Cannabis indica is indigenous to the high northern mountain ranges of the Afghani Hindu Kush, Pakistani Kara Korams, Russian Pamirs, and Indian Himalayas.

Breeding Cannabis, F1 and F2 Explained

It can, and often does, take years or even decades before a professional, well, the TOP professional breeder has the seed that he was hoping to get when he started the project. He will not use the back cross route always but will use it occasionally,

Mendel found that some physical properties are dominant while others are recessive. The dominant trait is the one that has more chances to manifest itself, and the recessive traits are those properties that are usually hidden in the first generation (F1) hybridization, but appear in the next.
