When or what week into the flower stage would you pollinate your females??? Do you go natural , or selective pollinate selected branches with a q.tip??? Whats your advice on the week into flower to seed.and if you could explain how to use the colloidal to fem, never done the colloidal ever, thankyou so much
G’day, latewood and MacGyver will have all the answers to your questions, but with colloidal silver you spray it on the branches you want to seed.
Sorry i can’t help more as I am not entirely sure about the rest.
Colloidal silver solution needs to be at least 35 PPM. You spray it directly on the branches you want to have male pollen sacs on. Some people only spray it on the bottom branches so they can still use the bud on the top. You don’t want to use the part of the plant that you spray. Once the pollen sacs are full, you use that pollen on any female plant and it will produce 99% feminized seeds.
Pollination occurs naturally when both the male and female flower. The
male grows pollen sacks and when they open pollen spreads through the air.
So; Yes you would be in 12/12 when you pollinate. Peace, lw
Irma. There’s plenty of articles about colloidal silver, in fact, Bergman’s Grow Bible covers the process in great detail. Taking a clone is a better way to get follow-on crops because they will be a direct copy of your plants. This enables you to have a year-round growing plan without buy seeds.
the fertilized buds white pistils will all turn red, and that bud produces seeds. if done well, the rest of the plant will remain unchanged, or at least it seemed like it to me when i tried it. my branch made seeds, and they sprouted, so i was happy with the test. and the flowers were fire too by the by.
The pollen dropped about a week ago on my small breeding experiment. The males took about 6 to 7 weeks in flower (12/12 first 2 weeks then 10/14) when suddenly, they just seemed to burst open and shed the pods and pollen.
You can see pictures of the pollen drop at my grow pages HERE
