Grove thanks for posting, no question should be considered "dumb ass" I too was a novice at one time and felt the way you do, I was so lucky to find a breeder Grat3ful H3ad and his Ms. who helped me along the way, many thanks H3ad Seed..
Here is the lineage:
Doobies Cripple Creek
Tom Hill created a Cripple Creek years ago, I used that name before I knew he had already used it, thus I call mine DoobieDucks Cripple Creek. I am the breeder of this cross which I have taken to F3 status thus am calling it a new variety.
DoobieDucks Cripple Creek is a cross made with genetics from Mountain High Seed, with their Jolly Bud, and a DJ Shorts Cocoa Kush clone I acquired and grew out in 2010 from a Cali collective.
Doobies Cripple Creek has not been tested for THC content
Cocoa Kush DJ Short, this came from two Blueberry parents, the mother was leaning sativa.
Flo; Original Flo is a Sativa/Indica cross (60% Sativa/ 40% Indica) with very Sativa phenotypic characteristics.
Jolly Bud = Sweet Tooth1.1 x Blockhead, Sweet Tooth 1.1 Spice of Life-DJ Short joint project. Mostly Indica, Sativa traits occasionally show. Spice of Life and DJ Short created by crossing Sweet Pink Grapefruit to Blueberry.
Block Head: Spice of Life Seed..Mostly Indica with Sativa characteristics.
I choose varieties when they interest me, in the past a lot of times just for pics believe it or not. A lot of times now looking to preserve genetics I've obtained that are no longer available. I did try a few times to bring out Med traits but I don't have the space or facilities to have the numbers the well know breeders do. To bring out certain characteristics that show up in generations I think one has to grow quantity.
I use a very small paint brush, wooden match head size, to pollinate only a few small buds at a time with fresh pollen from an isolated male. I document and label each bud with time frame and the boys info; never using more than one male on a single girl. I've done this in my greenhouse on two or more girls with different males in the season but those are the furthest from each other, over 15 feet.
There is still a possibility of cross pollination but I've never seen any results that I feel are due to this. In my current grow I used only one male during a season, thus eliminating having another male in the area.
You sir may run into trouble waiting until late flowering to pollinate. I have never had success that late. Though I have never figured out exactly when the ladies are ready. I dust them a few times during flowering cycle from the time the pistils are well developed, to when they're getting fat, until they start turning. Seems like when they fatten is best?
I so hope to make Jorge's book, I'm not sure that is confirmed yet, we're still ironing out details.
Here is a few more of my Moon Monkey Haze and lineage behind it:
Moon Monkey Haze=OldMoonshine F3 x Monkey Haze F3s
This is a cross I did in 2012 with two OM F2s from Bohempian to make the OM F3s and Monkey Haze F3s seed direct from Raco in 2012
A female MH-f3 was produced from that ^ ^ seed.
The male OM F3 and female MH F3 were crossed.
The OTM F3 male is actually BlueBerry F7 from Bohempian directly from DJ
Monkey Haze= DeepChunk x Haze F2 Tom Hill
“Monkey Haze F3...two MHaze f2 females x 2 MHaze f2 males
