Ok smokers here is one for you. I have never tried to cross breed two different strains and really want to try two kinds that I have had an eye on. My favorite purple haze and pink Cinderella. I wondered how it would look if it actually came out with the pink and purple colors and of course the taste counts as well. I have read up on how to do it and am going to give it a try as soon as this grow is done. Any thoughts on this or ideas on the best way to try it. I will only pollinate one branch for the seeds or is it better to do a whole plant? HUH! Pink haze or purple Cinderella I kind of like those names.

One branch will give you plenty of seeds. I pollinated two small lower branches on a THC Bomb and ended up with 280 seeds before I got bored with digging them out of the buds.

I'm just starting to learn cross breeding and how new strains are made stable. Not sure I have the patience or the space, but I plan to give it a try.

On the name, how about Hazy Cinderella??

Cross breeding is easy. Getting the cross you want is hard. Then you need to stabilize the phenotype over a few generations if you want to get consistent expression of the traits you want. Pollen chucking is fun though. Crash is doing some crazy crosses. As Crash said, you will get a lot of seeds. I got well over 1000 per plant by just letting a male live and pollinate for a couple weeks.
