Pollination

Morning all, I was gettin ready to do a Platinum Zikittkez and Forbidden Fruit cross, with some Space Runtz pollen. I've done some breeding in the past, but I was kinda just chuckin pollen, and hopin for the best. My question is... do you breeders on WP wait until there are a lot of pistils on the moms like late in flower, or just a few like early in flower. Secondly, do you pollinate the main colas, or go down lower to the smaller buds. Thanks a lot Chubbs

    • I just wait till my female is in full flower.

      When the tops and the nodes have visibly

      Several pistils. I know I don't have to tell you but you need around 4 to 5 weeks for seeds to fully mature.

      As for your second question, you can do a single branch or cola if you like. Me personally this last round I did 2 whole plants and a single branch on another.

      I guess it all depends how many seeds you want, gonna use, or share.

      Lol! Your funny bro! Your like one of the most knowledgeable growers around!

      You know what youd going you crazy man!

      Good luck and keep them new strains coming!

        • I just let nature do its thing on the ones I am crossing right now and what I observed is the female flowers have several pistils before the males drop pollen. The couple of times I used CS I spot dusted the flowers in the first 2 weeks after I saw preflower so they were pretty hairy. 

          Turn the fans off

          • Platinum Zikittkez and Forbidden Fruit cross, with some Space Runtz, Your going to have to come up with an acronym or something to name this one.

          • No Cs pollen. I bought the pollen from a place called Pots and Plugs . They're out of Michigan I believe. $45 for about a gram of pollen. Need to make the best use of it. Thanks for all the replys.

            • Just remember you can't cross strains with female pollen.

              • @ SBR  Not sure what you mean, but it made me laugh !!  @ Pipes... I know what I'm doin, but I wanted to make sure I'm doin it the best way possible. Never bought pollen before, and don't want to fuck it up ! he,he,he @ ChAs have you heard of Pots and Plugs they're in your neighborhood ? Thanks again

                • Hey chubbs, just saying female pollen will give you female seeds with characteristics of the mother while male pollen will crossbreed your plant. You ordered male pollen, right?

                  • Yeah SBR,  reg. pollen. I'm lookin for a couple traits (phenos) to hopefully come thru on the male side with the Runtz. Those traits are... fungus resistance to Botryitis, and Septoria, and strong good yielding plant. Where I'm at I would guess the average humidity during the growin season is 75% - 80% I've only grown Runtz last year OD, and was very impressed. It's a crap shoot fosho, but it's FUN, FUN, FUN !

                    • SBR is the term "female pollen" accurate, or is it "feminized pollen?" I know I'm a nerd...and a little HIGH too ! BTW I'm not sold on feminized seeds. To me when you take the male away from the equation, you're fuckin with Mother Nature...he,he,he  Don't get me wrong, I buy a lot of fems, but if you really think about it, fems has made BIG $ for breeders. Peace

                      • Lol, know what you mean man. I call it female pollen because it's created entirely by female plants. It will produce only female seeds and will not crossbreed your plants. What you will get is regular seeds crossed with that strain. Good luck on your project!
