I'm off and running on a breeding/grow project for this year. My goal is to use two landrace strains from Khalifa genetics to work into an outdoor strain for local growth. I live at 37 degrees N lattitude at an elevation of around 5700 feet above sea level. I selected their Moroccan Beldia strain from around 35 degrees N, and their Rasol Village strain from around 32 degrees N. I got 100% germination, planting them in coir on April 1.

They've now been planted in 4 inch pots of Fox Farm Happy Frog, since these two landraces prefer to grow in lower nutrient I decided not to use the Ocean Forest. They should soon be ready to identify sex, at which point I will cull out all the Moroccan males, and select on male from the Rasol village to pollinate a female Moroccan. Of course I will grow out all the females, because, weed. Both are good hash producers, so I'm looking forward to whatever I can get from them. 

 

Today, here are seedlings, each type in their own tote. The Rasol Village (second photo with 12 plants) is certainly growing much stronger than the Moroccan Beldia right now as you can see in the two photos.

My Rasol Village landraces are doing awesome, but I have one which shows very short internodes compared to the rest. I don't think it's a nute problem because they are all in the same soil (fox farm happy frog) and getting the same water (no added nutes, many landraces tend to prefer poorer soil) so I'm thinking it's a rogue pheno. Any thoughts? I tried to focus on it in the photo attached here.

Here is my "freebies' bin. The top three are from seeds labeled just as fem, emailing with the breeder I find that they are a cross between their 'Aladdins skunk' strain and one of three Afghan indica landraces. The two the next row down were bag seed I pulled from some dispensary weed, I think it was strawnanaberry. The bottom five were labelled 'mystery machine' which also seems to be an indica dominant strain with some interesting write ups I've found on the web. These won't be part of my breeding effort, but I suspect that, being indicas, they will harvest earlier and give me something to smoke or cook with while I'm waiting for the grand prize, the two sativa strains I'm running and hopefully crossing.

The first male of this grow has shown itself. Sometimes it's easy! This is one Moroccan who won't be growing through the summer....  PXL_20210609_223338819.jpg

This is awesome, I'll be following this thread.  I rarely came across sativa-dominant strains back when weed was illegal, and in places where it still is, I wonder whether people are able to find them.

 

Your pics are posting sideways because of their size.  If you use a free photo editor like Irfanview to size them down a little first, they'll post right-side-up.

 

 

Of course I will grow out all the females, because, weed.

 

Ha!

Thanks Sidestreet, I've always liked sativa more than indica, I'm glad I found this Moroccan landrace available. Looking forward to what those genetics can do at home, and crossing them with the Indian landrace certainly has me smacking my lips! My earliest grows of 40 years ago were all from bag seed  and certainly were Mexican and Columbian sativa genetics. It's good to finally live where I can grow out a nice tall one without worrying about being seen! 

Thanks for the advice on the photos, will certainly try that app and see if it makes the photo's I post better!
