Agent PH- Looks good, healthy...it'll put on a nice top hat of pollen! Figure a few more inches....light is how far away not that it's sequestered?
While not large, you're going to have best strain traits to pass on Glad you separated him!
In providing pollen to females, the males are also contributing half of the DNA that will make up the subsequent offspring. Thus, selecting males which display advantageous traits can produce offspring that will retain those traits.
Here's what you look for in male plants:
Remove any males that grow extremely quickly or are very tall. In general, these particular plants are best for producing fibers rather than flowers. (a lot of growers unfamiliar with breeding choose this....seems logical, but not)
Keep plants with large and hollow stems and get rid of any stems with too much pith (spongy white tissue). There is a link between stem type and THC content. It's been explored here on IC.
Pick males with tight, dense flowers and get rid of any with a loose and airy structure.
Focus on males with the best odor.
Definitely choose a male that will complement the traits of the female.
Dust early. If you have a female starting to ripen next 2 weeks (guessing with pic above), have them next to each other. Gently shake the male next to female w/ pistils. You can do this for about 2 weeks. Best seeds are ripened in 40-45 days. If you wait too long, pistils starting the dusk of their life, seed production won't finish to fruition.
Good luck! I think you'll like the cross you have intended! Thumbs up!
Seeds have the power to preserve species, to enhance cultural as well as genetic diversity, to counter economic monopoly and to check the advance of conformity on all its many fronts.
Happiness held is the seed; Happiness shared is the flower.
Instant gratification takes too long.
