I got a question about if silver nitrate and veg light is a must to make your plant go hemaphrodite in the final week of flowering? My plan is to harvest everything above the lowest 4 branches of my trees. They have been brought up indoors and re-planted in large 60litres containers with supersoil mixed with diaper gel. I’ve supercropped, topped, and been defoiling them since The start and vegged them for 4 months, 3 Of The monts they’ve been vegged outside and it’s been a perfect summer for that. Now I’m going to take’em indoors so they’ll finish with optimal condition under 1000w hps 12/12 and a UVB reptile 10.0 lamp on a timer that gives UVBbursts 15mins/hour. I’m goin to take clones from every plant and veg them and select one mother plant from every strain based upon the outcome of the finished product. I’m growing Amstel gold, white widow and the original version of Bubblegum wich is rare these days and I’d like to make seeds from. I’ve already made some ISO oil from the leaves from trimming in veg and it’s almost a psycadelic exeperiance, my face goes numb and the effect is energetic and feels like your in paradise, 1 small dab gives an intense rush for over 3hours with several peaks. The effect feels like great cocain with The emotional state of MDMA and also has that morphine like pain relief. So you can imagine that I’m lookin forward for the buds. I got ADHD so I’m also experimenting on developing new medical strains that workes the best for me. But As for now I want to know the best approach for stressing the plan to become hemaphrodite;)
If im not wrong, then if u get seeds from a hermi plant then all the seeds u grow will only put out hermi plants. You will have hermi seed. I growed a plant last year .and it hermied.
Actually the seeds from a hemaphrodite generates femenized seeds as their gender genetics gets dominant towards feminine plants when the plant realizes it doesn’t need the male to survive. It may also become easier for femenized to become hemaphrodites if you stress them towards vegetation in their final stage of life cycle. The question that puzzles my mind is if there are other methods of stressing them into stage as hemaphrodites then silver-nitrate and force a fully mature blooming plant into veg.
A natural hermaphrodite will produce hermaphrodite offspring. A true female plant that has a forced hermaphrodite flower created will produce female offspring. These are very different situations.
Exactly we are talking about the same thing, I missunderstood when you talked about hemaphrodite, as I asked for ways to practicly stress them into herm. I believe I mentioned that <3
There are various ways to cause a normally female plant to have hermaphrodite flowers. I don’t believe you need a special light though. Just the colloidal silver or maybe silver nitrate, or you can force a branch to hermaphrodite by just giving it alone more than 12 hours of light, say pinpoint light on that branch only while the rest of the plant has the regular 12 hours of darkness daily.
This maybe a stupid question but do you water the plant with colloidal silver or spray it on to a branch?
Yes on the branch’s flowers you want to hermaphrodite.
Interesting idea to pinpoint a lower branch, maybe let on of the branches go through a glory hole into the veg room would be a cool way to try that method
