So I have a plant from a mystery seed that I really like and I’m going to try to make seeds from one of my plants.
First I trimmed some of the little branches to isolate one strong lower branch.
Then I bagged the rest of the plant to protect it from the Colloidal Silver (CS).
Here are my supplies.
And I painted the heck out of that one branch. Not making it DRIPPING wet, but the branch and anything where two things met got painted.
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!
Set to follow and learn a few things.
Seahawks on TV! Love it!
Sweet, I was gonna do this to cross my Cherry and the best Gorilla Glue in my stable to make a Cherry Super Glue.
Cherry super glue! That has a very nice ring to it.
Nice! Set to watch. Definitely interested in learning this process.
One important thing to know when playing with STS, don’t smoke the buds from a plant that was treated with STS. It’s systemic and potentially toxic.
Nice tip @Hellraiser will keep that in mind
Just to clarify… Are you saying the whole plant will be contaminated even if only a couple bud sites are treated?
I follow what you’re asking, but I think the plant is still in veg stage.
Maybe I “nodes” would have been better.
maybe I’ve been smoking too much gold leaf as I cannot quite understand what the colloidal silver does to the pot
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.
Dude. I sure hope that’s what happens.
Since I can’t buy more Wash seeds, this is the only way I can think of to grow her again next summer and someday share some seeds.
My wife and I were talking about me trying it. The process is just as long as a normal grow and harvest but I normally don’t have money to spend on seeds so making my own would be super helpful.
Cherry Super Glue sounds rad!
When I was down in Cali last fall, I picked up an eighth of Cherry Fritters…and it was so good. I’d like to get some more. It was so sweet and sublime.
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.
now I know more pot stuff…A Word About TDS Meters
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.
Yes, the whole plant will be contaminated.
I thought that’s what you meant. Ty, sir.
How do you even tell the difference when they’re seeds?
