Then I’ll let it dry and I’ll paint it again. I have to go to a neighborhood meeting in a bit. These stupid meetings are boring as hell or funny as $&!@. I’m gonna medicate before I walk down there. I’ll paint her again when I get back.
I’ll let the branch dry again and put her back out for the night.
I actually have more of a plan for this project. I don’t think I’m half-assing it like other projects of mine.
Hopefully I’ll have some seeds for more “Wash” when this is through!
Basically the CS painted or sprayed on the bud sites of a female plant fill force the plant to produce pollen sacks. You harvest the pollen and self pollinate another female plant with this pollen and it produces fem seeds. It kind of chemically forces the plant to hermi but only makes pollen that’s feminized.
If you have the space and resources, you could always just buy regular seeds and separate the males you want to keep for pollinating. Reg seeds are always cheaper and your seeds will be reg so you’ll have males and females of your F1 to cross back for the phenos you like.
TDS meters cannot be used to measure ppm of colloidal silver. This is because TDS meters only measure electrical conductivity of a liquid and then crudely convert it to ppm. The problem is that they are calibrated using a saltwater solution which conducts electricity much better than CS. This immediately gives a false reading. Added to this is the fact that good quality CS has a particulate content of around 20%. Because it is not dissolved a TDS meter will not recognise the particulate content so will be out by another 20%. Furthermore, conductivity changes with temperature. a TDS reading at 15c will be substantially lower than a reading of the same sample at 25c. TDS meters can only really tell you if one sample is stronger or weaker than another at the same temperature.
