Oh crap, I hate hearing that. Everywhere I saw said to start when first pistils popped out. What you say make perfect sense. You dont even reverse it seems, it just goes straight to male. Ballpark figure, what day would your balls bust <— lol :eyebrows:

I don't know man never kept track. They bust when they bust lol

Most guides are taken from photos. Etc I knew autos grew on a different time and my few few attempts went ok but not perfect. This works better.

Here is a quote from me previously.

I use cs bought from Ebay as a health supplement labeled as 30 ppm. I sacrifice one plant usually and only in one gallon pot.

I top at 2nd or 3rd node. Pick one side and spray it once a day as soon as the branch shows signs its growing. That side usually never shows female preflowers. Key IMHO is to start spraying early, and light single mists on the grow tip. If you wait till preflowers it takes time to show male sacs and flowering is well underway by the time pollen drops.

When it starts to show sacs and are looking like they will bust a nut you have two choices. One cut the branch and let the pollen drop collect and paint the un sprayed side. Or two put it in a separate tent and let them open and air polinate.
I do the first and split my pollen in two one gets used asap second goes into the deep freeze in case i want to use later.
Works well.

Just made about 150 seeds this way. They were separated and sitting out drying as i type this.

How is it going @Hemposapien ?

I gave up and quit spraying at day 38 from seed, nothing but bud growing and maturing. I almost killed them, but today I noticed this at day 45! :yay:
Never imagined getting so stoked about seeing nanners :crying:

I did the silver colloidal thing,it was pretty easy but I used pretty strong colloidal silver 240 ppm they say anything over 30ppm is fine bought the bottle ready mixed on amazon for $20
I sprayed the plant once
A day just before turning the lights on in my grow tent for 14 days sprayed the whole plant,you can’t smoke the plant anyway after spraying it with silver colloidal,got a shit load of pollen lol

was lucky enough I had 2 females Same age I got about 200 seeds,and some killer bud
I took couple of clones from the female before I sprayed her with the silver,

hit one of the clones with some pollen from that plant grew
A shit load of seeds,I have the plant drying at the minute I’ll take the seeds out after it drys,mite be interesting strain
