It's great to here how this all came about. Thanks for the history lesson Gu.
[Sticky] Stardawg Breeding Male - The Greenpoint Secret Sauce
any chance of a chem 91 x stardawg?
got CD bx3 and 91 bx2 f2 and have them stashed in the vault. I have been proclaiming the virtues of chemdawg since I first smoked it, then grew the cut out in Salem, OR a few yrs back. I have smoked most everything, including midwest brick for years and the fact is, and I have this argument often with friends, lolz, but the one strain that cures that all that ails me, and thats quite a few ailments, ChemD is my medicine. I have found some other strains I like, not lots, but a few. I am not one for yield, well kinda, but taste, ease of growth, etc, I worry bout firepower. Chem delivers it everytime, and its not hard to grow.
Question for Gu: What do you exactly look for in your male, your stud notwithstanding? I look for vigor, looks like a lady and a quick show of sex with a smelly stem rub. Some ole timer friends of mine swear on saving and smoking, Im just not gonna do that, lol. I figure its at least a lil like dogs, you throw two good ones together, odds are something good will come out of it. Also, I like something else you stated, as much as I like some OG's, I hardly ever see the males used, but when a Chem male is used with an OG, usually end up with a great mix also. See a lot of reversed OG's. I hate hazes, I hate taste meds, again, strictly firepower. Also neat that your bx on the new StarDawg was the Ghost. Thanks for all you do. Peace and karma.
You have to see it's progeny unfortunately. There is no easy way around it.
Once a male proves himself, it's game on. Most males do not.
Yeah man, a good male is super hard to find. A lot of people will go through literally hundreds before getting a keeper. And you really won't know for sure until you test it out. People seem to "look" for a male that produces crazy amounts of pollen, are pungent smelling when you rub the stalk, and hopefully shows tricomes/frost on the leaves. Some promote shorter plants and others say size is irrelevant.
Nice job on the history lesson. I've heard it a million times, but it's always fun. (speaking of males, young, foolish, Mr. Chemdog got one out of the seeds and tossed it! A lesson to all who find a special strain- keep the males! if nothing else, to make a single batch of seeds for future hunting-) I wonder if anybody has ever looked to who originated it- know it was supposedly from then Cal./Org. boarder...
One thing I never got though, was how it went from "Chemdog" to "Chemdawg"- was that JJ?
curious the know what characteristics are you searching for that might surpass Star Dawg
There's a killer cherry cream pie pheno that's floating around. Have you tried crossing this male to it yet?
