M.O.B.Y - My Own Back Yard 2019

 

I got a late start this year due to work and spring busyness. I wasn't able to start the seeds I made last year until June 1st. I soaked them and started them under florescence lights for the first few weeks before kicking them outside. The strains are the best male I had last year crossed with only the best select females. Last year I ended up with quite a mixed bag (pun intended) and only about half were keepers in the sense of being really special.

They have been growing pretty good and fast as the weather has been really great. No massive heatwaves like last summer here in the PNW and there has been quite a few rainy days as well. In the beginning I fed them Gaia Green's 4-4-4 with some other amendments. Now they are just starting to go in to flower and I have switched to Gaia Greens Power-Bloom 2-8-6.

Pic with the water bottle for size is a strain i developed last year that is beginning to bud and smells absolutely amazing/exotic/candy. The other two similar pics are sister plants of the same cross all starting to bud.

I've been watering with rain water i collect when i can and spring water when i cannot. I try and alternate bloom feed water and then straight water and also gave some terpene boosting addons like epsom salts , molasses and insect frass. I top mulch with thick layer of straw.

Almost every plant has a resident spider or two that seem to be devouring the pests. The black one you see jumped out as i was rubbing a stalk and startled me ! I jumped back and took its pic , it came out to challenge me at the outboard end of a leaf and meant serious business (get away from my plant)

Lowryder 2 Crosses

I got some Lowryder 2 autoflowering seeds off the original creator who is also a friend of mine about 7 years ago. Not sure why i didn't crack them over the years but when i finally did i had low hopes of germination. Turns out they sprouted just fine but i only had a few. One turned male and one turned female , the other was runty so i just pulled it up. 

 

 

Lowryder #2 was the second in the long line of successful auto-flowering strains introduced to the world by The Joint Doctor following on the heels of the Original Lowryder #1 strain. Lowryder 2 improved the potency, flavour and yield of the original auto strain whilst remaining 100% automatic, i.e. not requiring a reduction in hours of light in order to promote the flowering phase. Superior genetics from the Brazilian Santa Maria strain were added to contribute increased potential for resin production, an exotic flavour and a special, soaring sativa high.

Following 3 generations of selective in-breeding Lowryder #2 was ready and fully-stabilised. The smoke is strong with a much-improved flavour and better yields. Its buds are larger, tighter and more aromatic than the original Lowryder strain. As with Original Lowryder a separate room or light cycle is totally unnecessary to flower Lowryder #2. Outdoors, Lowryder #2 will mature quicker than any non-auto-flowering variety.

Lowryder #2 was created by the legendary breeder The Joint Doctor, responsible for creating the very first commercially available auto-flowering strain - Lowryder

 

Turns out the little midgets were exactly like in the pics and literature. Even the smell was fantastic which I had heard was not the case. In fact all the negative chirping i had heard about the Lowryder 2 did not line up with my experience. It was pretty much 60 days from seed to finished bud (although I fully seeded the plant so i let it go a few extra weeks to mature all seeds).

I bred the Lowryder 2 lower branches with itself Lowryder 2 male pollen and then i dusted the top nuggets with my very best Lime Skunk male from this year that I collected pollen from at a different location. 

 

One of the beauties of the 60 day autoflowers is the fact that it does not need a big pot at all and also barely uses any Grow fertilizer , preferring bloom almost from the beginning. The plant basically does away with the vegetative cycle in favour of flowering right away. I hung it to dry inside and then harvested the seeds , stored and marked them. 

Because its only middish August i decided to test this years auto seeds this year! Also some friends are wanting to test autos so i will be handing some around. I soaked and sprouted the seeds and the germination rate is excellent and they seem healthy. I have now put them in to starter trays , labeled them and will put them under floros as they pop up to give them a good start no matter the weather outside. 
 

Some of the off-spring will look/act like mama auto and others will have traits of my purple-turning heavy budding Lime Skunk male ...still others will look in between. It will be fun to see the variations in this next round. I am hoping for some special magic ones in the mix.

Thanks. Some of the plant pics are a bit blurry so i tried to add multiples. I will wipe my lens and check my settings. Also I did not have time as i usually do to shrink/ crop all the photos. Apologies...

Edit: I resized the pics and I think they look a touch better. Will still tweak camera.

Definitely a cast of characters as far as smells go ! Some are very good  some are average and the odd one is absolutely stunning in the floral nose department. Starting to get notes of baby skunk poo , apricots , candy , lemons , limes , bubble-gum , vanilla and cinnamon....

Thanks for the comments. Appreciated...

Trying to keep up with watering. Every time I skip a day i am finding dry withering plants , which is always a bummer. I do like to keep them on the edge of dryish rather then soaked at all times. Problem is when they are dry the water flies right through them and on to the ground so i have to give them a little bit at a time to properly hydrate.

I found a special plant that has two-headed buds on every branch. I could not find a terminus that was not doubled.  Two buds are better then one !

Man that is a huge beautiful purple fan leaf! Do prefer outdoor growing over indoor?

Definitely an outdoor grower... I enjoy making my own strains that do well in my zone from seed and without light deprivation. Each year I cross my best males with the best females and abandon the non-interesting plants. Then I back-cross those chosen stains on to themselves for stability and preservation. It's very enjoyable to see plants from seed that look/act/smell/taste like their mama. I have not done any cloning in the last number of years...just selective breeding.

Really beautiful, healthy plants again this year ! I LOVE the double bud plant.

I could very happily sit in your garden to breath in the fragrances......................

 

It's possible that some of those pictures found their way into the POTM nominations....

Beautiful plants man!

I’ve been thinking about trying to breed something that will flower to completion in the prairies here myself... my only real options are autos or “semi” autos at the moment... I need to find something that is sensitive to photoperoid change that finishes quickly... I have nothing against autos but I want something I can start indoors, clone and get a bit bigger of a yield, etc.

What kind of genetics are these girls made up of?

So when can I show up so we can twist one up?

If I start walking now I should get there by harvest time.

As always man, fantastic work. Too bad we aren't neighbors. I've been thinking about you a lot lately my friend. Your contributions here have always been uplifting. Keep up the good work.
