Hey guys - I am going to be doing a 20,000 seed pheno hunt from Cannarado in the coming months. It will be outdoor. Does anyone have any advice on selecting winning phenos before flowering? I could take cuts of everything that looks good but that would still probably be 10,000+ clones.
That is a massive pheno hunt. Tissue culture is the only way to preserve all genetics till the end.
Usually you do the phenohunting from the 1st popping of seeds. Then take your best strains, and only clone those keeper strains. Then go balls out with only the keeper phenos.
I take cuts off everything before flower. I have had some of the plants I didn’t expect to be the “keepers” really surprise me!
