What happens when you cross a auto with a regular ?
im guessing no way to calculate the outcome

A fast flowering strain, but NOT an automatic.
Only after careful crossing and then backcrossing with the parent can you stabilise the 'automatic' gene.

So you get a lot of the ruderalis genetics

I bought a book on this (Its german and called "Enzyklopädie der Cannabiszucht") and I highly recommend books if you're interessted in this subject, breeding. But maybe this simple tutorial will suffice http://www.growweedeasy.com/advanced-breeding-techniques

To everyone who wants to learn genetics but doesn't want to read page after page. There is a game on steam which lets you run your own plant breeding shop called 'Crazy Plant Shop' based on the true laws of breeding.

Here is an exempt from https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=112662

"In other cases, careful selection is required. I’ll take the example of how the Lowryder#2 strain was created to prove my point here.

The goal is to preserve the recessive auto-flowering trait:

a = recessive auto-flowering trait
A = dominant normal flowering

Lowryder was bred to Santa Maria/Planck in order to create LR#2. So;

Santa Maria x Lowryder = AA x aa = 100% Aa F1 --> The auto-flowering trait is masked by the gene for normal flowering but all the offspring carry the recessive trait.

(Santa Maria x Lowryder) x Lowryder = Aa F1 x aa = 50% Aa F2 + 50% aa F2 --> 50% auto-flowering in the second generation. This is where the selection for AF plants begins. We pick one of the AF F2's and cross it once more to a true breeding Lowryder,

[(Santa Maria x Lowryder) x Lowryder] x Lowryder = aa F2 x aa = 100% aa F3 = Lowryder#2

As you can see, if we take one of the auto-flowering F2-individuals and cross it to a true breeding Lowryder we get the same result as when we cross two true breeding Lowryders to each other (LR x LR), 100% auto-flowering individuals.

So, if you want to make a new auto-flowering Lowryder hybrid, you have to backcross it twice to true breeding Lowryders in order to preserve the auto-flowering trait in the new hybrid. Remember though that this F3-offspring only carries 12,5% of the genes from the non-auto-flowering parent. In order to increase this percentage you have to start the process all over again."

The abbreviations and shorthand are neat and all, but it's fucking greek to someone who isn't well read on the subject. Can you explain in plain english?

I typed it all out but my post got deleted by accident.
So here is the short version: Take two completly unrelated plants, f.e. a male from russia and a female from mexico. If you breed these two you get a very uniform plant, this generation is the F1 generation. If you now breed the F1 Generation with itself again you split up their genes and are able to select from a wide diversity of plants. This is the F2 generation.

Just play crazy plant shop will ya

Consider my picture. In this case the gene W (white flowers) is rescessive and R (red flowers) is dominant.

I see. I'm trying to make a trileaf strain with the only trileaf plant I've ever had, or ever even seen aside from photos. My plan was to just separate any trileafs that are produced which are F1s, and breed them with each other. Then do the same with F2, etc etc, until I have a plant that reliably produces trileafs when bred with another of its trileaf siblings.

Search around for what others write about these mutations. Trileaf is called 'Whorled phyllotaxy' btw.. Godspeed and please keep us updated.

I have a seed that popped with an extra cot, but didn't throw trileaves. I'm going to keep it as a brood mother and potential breeding candidate.

It could be very well that it corrected it genetics through the phases. But its a good idea to try anyway.

>extra cot
To clarify, you mean a third embryo leaf, right? Not a second seeding right?

Alright, so

If you only have one plant, try to clone its cuttings. Use some clones to grow weed specifically for smoking for scientific reasons of the highest order to answer the most important question of them all.

But the others you will treat with either hormones or you stress them out or third option:

Ive read somewhere around here a study, that if you cut the roots of a hydroponically grown cannabis cutting repeatedly, its more likely to go male as it has no root which are responsible for some hormone production.

So you could try that. Other option is to breed herm heavy f1s through either extensive stress or many hormones. Then with itself to f2 and select desireable traits (stays a trileaf long). Do so again until you are statisfied with your genetics. it`ll suffer from inbred defects but it shouldnt be too bad in the first two generations i wager

Be aware though, only use seeds from actual trileaf buds, sometimes the upper branches stop growing like a trileaf. i guess its not unlikely to say that these seeds will have the corrected genetics. Its a mutation after all, so dont expect this to go by the book.

The thing about stressing to hermaphrodite....this is typically a somewhat localized phenomenon. Some nodes can go male, many stay female. Which comes to how I got these seeds--
This tricot seedling is likely already the product of hermaphroditic self-pollination as is, since one specific plant in a group got seeded a little. But at least I have a wide variety of source material seeds.

Better luck next time.
Maybe itll be a male and you can at least make a few seeds for your storage, pollinate a flower.
