by Lexstar about September 12, 2019 - report

Newb question. How do you determine if a seed is female or male? How do the seed banks do it?

    It’s not determining, it’s creating. The process they (personal and commercial) use to create the seeds, makes them feminized. There’s no way to look at a random seed and determine if it’s male or female.

      Is it a complicated process? Can home growers do the same thing?

      Lexstar I’m not sure what all goes into creating fem seeds, breeding or cross breeding. There are others here that have plentiful knowledge on the subject and I’m sure GWE has instructions somewhere :)

    heres a link to read up on it...several members here and myself make a lot of our fem seeds and cross breed too

    How To Make Fem Seeds

    some folks do the whole plant and some just do a limb or two on a plant..GL and have fun if you get to it

    Yeah man sbl is the man! He can take 1 plant and pollinate several branches with different pollen and create several crosses at the same time, same plant.That shit is boss!

    Good answers already but just to add, the female pollen vs the male pollen is the key. Male pollen, like regular in the wild, produces both but you don't know which is which until you plant them and grow them. Sadly, we are losing a lot of our ability to cross-breed because regular seeds are no longer available on many strains.

      It isn't difficult, you just have to be careful that what you want to do to one branch, doesn't get done to the whole plant.
      Be careful of overspray, when treating with Colloidal Silver.
      Be careful of male pollen, once male flowers are present.

    Making seeds is easy, making seeds only on the buds you want to is a little more challenging but not hard either. In the past I used a paper plate with a cut to slide over the branch and mask the bud I wanted to make pollen. I did the same when I pollinated a bud. Just make sure you turn the fans off and leave them off for half a day or so or more the plants you’re pollinating out of the area for a while. I didn’t take those precautions this grow and I will have more seeds than I wanted

    I use to gorilla grow and I breed my seeds for the next years grow every year. I made feminized occasionally from certain plants that I wasn't gonna be visiting from the time I planted them until harvest time but most of the time I would just plant a handful of regular seeds in a spot far away from my grows and just breed regular (female and male) seeds their every year. Then I would just pull the males as they showed male flowers. We would occationally take a male plant and wave it over our almost mature crops to add the little white immature seeds for weight also. I know that wasn't very nice but we were after as much weight as we could get from them back then!

      So you messed with your customers as well as your competitors. And you were worried about my little not so sterile plants. Shame, shame, shame. Lol

    I really don't have anything to add to these answers, but i do agree that female seeds are created. I have done this using colloidal silver, but i just as soon buy my female seeds and not have to go through the trouble of making them.  Peace
