where do you keep the males so they don't pollinate everything? one of the mental flosses is a boy so may want to keep the pollen

These were gathered together without getting out of ma chair....more in the chest freezer!

 

in the process of spring cleaning my seed bank....getting rid of about half of this and getting the seed to others who will grow it before it becomes nonviable...No asking for any please...these are all already earmarked and gone...except for the earlier generations of my own strain SweetNLow...those are my personal pet project and I keep the earlier generations so if need be I can go back and begin again from an earlier generation ...I hadda do th@ with ma F7 generation....the first F7 cross plants were not up to standard and I repeated the F7 cross to make F7-2...F8-F11 has not needed a second breeding cross.

 

The very early F1-F4 seeds might be mostly nonviable by now but I am keeping them anyway...

OK...an overview of different way I collect pollen.

 

#1

The easiest method...let the male flowers begin to develop on the plant in a separate grow area, place cardboard around the base if the plant and if possible cover it with some paper to collect pollen as it falls. You will need an area with very still air and the leaves of the plant will get some pollen on them, so you can use a small artists brush to brush the pollen off the leaves onto the paper. Flowers will also drop off onto the paper/card and these can be removed with tweezers or just the artists brush [the flowers will stick to the tip of the brush]. Remove the flowers before storing the pollen as their moisture will effect the pollen storage.

 

Pro's

low effort, low cost.

 

Con's

Need a really secure place with no breeze or moving wind.

Pollen can be easily disturbed and get to your flowering female plants.

 

 

#2

Cut the flowering spike off the male plant, lay it on newspaper in a shoebox, put the lid on [with a few holes in the lid to vent moisture] and let the pollen drop. Come back a few days to a week later and you can collect the fallen pollen.

 

Pro's

Easy, low effort

 

Con's

Need to wait for the male plant to develop flowers ready to drop pollen

 

#3

The soda bottle method.

Parts needed: 2Ltr plastic soda bottle [bottom cut off], half pint soda bottle, flat piece of card or plastic with a hole in the center to fit over the lip of the half pint bottle. Artist's brush.

Fill the half pint bottle with water/nute solution, fit the card over the top of the half pint bottle like a hat, cut the flowering spike off a male plant slightly shorter than the height of the 2Ltr soda bottle [make sure the flowers are CLOSE to opening if not already beginning to open], remove any lower growth on the male plant stem so when you place it in the half pint bottle no leaves/flowers are in the water. Place the plant stem in the half pint bottle with its cardboard hat/brim and then place the 2Ltr bottle with lid removed over the half pint bottle and plant stem. With the cap removed from the 2Ltr bottle excess moisture will be able to escape rather than condense inside the bottle. Pollen and flowers will drop from the stem over a few days to a week. You can then remove the big bottle and use the artists brush to brush pollen off the leaves to the card and remove the dropped flowers. You can tape the half pint bottle to the surface it sits on so it is stable.

 

Pro's

This method can be placed in almost any room without the pollen getting out

 

Con's

You have to let the male plant develop flowers ready to drop pollen, risk of knocking the bottle over

 

 

#4

Plastic tub with lid method #1

Place the cut flower spike in half pint bottle and place the half pint bottle in a plastic tub on its end, fit the lid on with a small air gap so excess moisture can escape, lay paper on the bottom end of the plastic tub and let the pollen fall, collect it later.

 

Pro's

more plant branches can be placed in the tub.

 

Con's

knocking the tub is a risk, due to the tub being slightly ajar pollen can escape.

 

 

#5

Double tub method #2

Use 2 plastic tubs one as a base and one sitting on top. One can place either a cut plant stem in a half pint bottle in the lower tub [with paper put down to collect pollen] or one can place an entire male plant with pot into the plastic tub...then you place the second tub inverted over the top,leaving it slightly ajar so excess moisture can escape. With clear tubs one can place a flouro light over it to keep the plant growing.

 

Pro's

This method allows one to place an entire plant in the setup, even one in a pot still growing.

 

Con's

This method takes up some space.

 

 

it will be another day or so and I will have some pics of each setup.

I never usually soak them, I soak the cup of coir I plant them in. Plant the seed in cup of wet coir and sit the cup in some water for the first few days so it gets the seed constantly wet.

 

I have enormous difficulty picking up something small and fragile like a split seed.

And now a pictorial of my plastic bottle method of pollen collection.

I did not have the size bottles I usually use so I modded it and used 1.25ltr bottles.

 

I used a foam pizza base for the collector plate.

I leave it in a room, with or without a cfl nearby....the branches will have flowers open and drop pollen for about a week or so, then I remove the branches, dropped flowers and use an artists brush to sweep pollen into a pile and place in a container either for use or storage.

 

This works in the dark just as well as in the light, but I always keep it inside somewhere

Ya not trying to grow roots, just keep the branches alive long enough to let flowers open and drop their pollen.

 

Use the biggest bottle you can for the pollen collection chamber....be sure to remove the lid so it does not get humid and dampen the pollen. Don't forget to tape the base bottle to a stable surface...one knock and the thing might topple.

 

You will find you might even have to use the brush to wipe pollen off the leaves...even if it looks like nothing or little there, wipe with the brush and you will find a pile of pollen quickly forms.

 

muA

 

Addendum:

viable seed will be ready 5 weeks [49 days] after pollination, but will be a tad small, good viable seed is ready @the 6week [56 days] mark and big viable seed will be beginning to fall from the plant @around the 7week [63 days] mark. [Add about 1 week to each stage for a pure sativa]

 

 

Addendum to addendum: :woohoo: 3 hardwood cuts of a female Pineapple Express just came in my front door! Had em prepped and in cups of coir within 3 minutes! muahahahha rasta.nana.gif  drums.gif  chewiegif  stickmangif  leprican.gif
