Yep I pulled 100 seeds off 5 nugs.I ordered colloidal silver solution, guaranteed 40 ppm so just need to spray 2 - 3 times a day for 2-3 weeks at most. I use a couple pieces of cardboard to prevent overspray and contaminating rest of plant and/or soil.
A very important factor in controlled pollination is not being over zealous. It really takes very little pollen to fertilize each flower site. Every ball or pollen sac contains hundreds of potential seedings.
Think of the pollen like individual grains of ground mustard or paprika.
I crossed the fastbuds Pineapple Express with a stitches love potion father - just popped a few baby beans myself . Personally I really liked the love potion. The pine apple not so much , but not a fan of fast buds .
I have 1 Barneys Farms Pineapple Express Auto seed left. After the test run on Moby, I am ready for that. The Barneys Farm Pineapple express is one of the best I've tried of that strain. The phenos I had were sativa leaning.
I also really like the stitches LP. I have about a dozen crosses to it at this point and now about half a dozen to the Dinafem Mobydick auto I flipped.
Not much of a fast buds fan myself. This is one out of 4 attempts at sprouting the Fastbuds Pineapple Express.
I ended up only spraying for 4-5 days with colloidal. and it produced male flowers. It worked well and did not overly seed plants. All about timing of pollination.
If you pollinate when the plant first shows sex, it helps keep the seed down and most of the bud is smokable. If overly seeded the smoke is not very good.
??? Not sure what you are referring to. The process of flipping a female to produce some male flowers?
How do you quantify the plant fighting? The male flowers appear after the end of the treatment, not during and you really don't want to have to use more solution than what is actually required.
Have you utilized this technique?
