Tarantula Genetics

Tarantula Genetics

* How long have you been growing/ breeding?
Growing since 2011, been breeding about 7 years now. Three years to the public

* What inspires you to make the crosses you do?
So I make my strains for yield and potency along with plants that are easy to grow for big scale grows. My biggest factor in most of my strains is low leaf to bud ratio.

* Favorite strain you’ve created so far?
Thats a hard one but I’d have to say platinum monkey mint punch

* How do you select strains for your crosses?
So all my strains I select are pheno hunted by me. When making a cross I first find what I want in the male that I want to see all the progeny have. For reversals it’s a lot different. While hunting females through pheno hunts I mark down what is the most common thing I see out them all and factor that as a dominant trait. For instance if it has awesome stacks on almost all phenos and they all look similar, you can tell that trait is more dominant. And then you see the only purple one, that might be your keeper. When I do choose the keeper it’s based on a series of things I’m looking at, but if it is something I want my line to possess (such as extremely strong stacking and branches that can support it) then that will be my reversal to use.

* Anything else you want people to know?
Back story get asked a lot; The name comes from my fighting days. I was nicknamed the tarantula for mma. All my breeding is done in house, pheno hunted and selected by me. I don’t use clones from outside gardens.
