Depends how many males you haveto pick from,and how much time you have to let them ripen. You ideally want to pollinate your females somewhere around 3 weeks.(helps to keep the total # of seeds down,and time to mature) I just picked my best males,based on growth rate,and health. They were at least F1(DP,and SeriousSeeds) So the genetic drift hopefully isn't two bad. I know at least my two AK's looked very simular. One was bigger than the other,but shared the same characteristics.
Honestly GG if you would like to eliminate messing with a male at all, why not make your own feminised. There is a relatively easy way to turn a female branch into a male branch,or a whole plant for that matter. Calloidal Silver,or Ionic silver. It's really easy to make using to.999 silver wire/bar/coin, Distilled water, a 6vlt 500mha dc charger with alligator clips,and a small airstone,and pump. There is a whole huge thread on it a cannibisworld, it in the breeding forum. Check it out. I made my first batch the other day. I don't plan on turning any of my girls on this run though,even though I should,Hmmm. Plus the silver is really good for you too. read up on it, especially as engineering oriented as you are man you'll trip out on this shit.
