I thought I would take the time to introduce my self to everyone.

I am Dr. Substrate

To fill everyone in I started growing mushrooms some time ago. I set up a lab and began experimenting with the wonderful little fungus.

I expanded from Ps. Cubinisis to Ps. Mexicana. It was a more difficult strain to grow, and I had a lot of luck with it

I expanded into the realm of plants and set up a closet to house the new experiments.

Which worked out quite nicely.

I decided I wanted to see just what the wonderful green plant had to offer and there was just not enough room in the closet. So I expanded a little

and decided to go aeroponic for several reasons.

So once the new room was built It looked like this

I loaded the room up with some Northern Lights and starting everything running.

Things moved fast from there.

As it stands now, all the plants are happy and growing like a weed

And it all looks good from under the canopy

The buds are on there way and looking good!

I found this place because I was looking for information on breeding. I wanted to try my hand at selecting traits and breeding a strain to fit my needs. That and I would like to be able to replenish my seeds. Call me skittish, but with the state of the world I am not sure ill be ordering seeds any time soon.

When I started I had a friend save me a bunch of bag seed. I could never get the stuff to grow, it did not even crack.

I am currently growing NL's. These came from a friend of a friend. He got them back when NL's were the thing and winning contests. He grew for many years and when he shut it all down 10+ years ago, he took the best looking male and best looking female and breed them for seeds. These were kept in a film canister in the fridge for many years and handed to me. They have been great, a little low on the germination rate, but the plants are GREAT!

I also have a few seeds I got from a breeder I met a year or so ago. These included G13xPS f1, PSxUM f1, something called Big Mama and another called Black Pepper. I have just cracked the Black Pepper and the Big Mama seeds to see what I get I also dropped the remaining bag seed into a glass of water, out of 100 seeds 2 cracked. I guess bag seed from Mexican brick weed is just junk

So here I am, Looking to learn all I can about breeding
