male again what now?

damn
got another male from pack of feminized seeds this is getting annoying :(


since want to collect pollen and have just one box thinking about waiting till sacks start to open cutting that sack and let it dry in the box then cut the sacks and mix with flour do you think the pollen wont be everywhere and it wont pollinate the f. from the next female that is not there yet?


dont want to ruin everything with tons of seeds..
how fast those sack open just saw first balls 2 days ago?

You could just put the male outside or somewhere else without as much light if you want to flower a female under the light.

Spray down the room with bleach, I do this after every grow and it seems to work for me. If you're super worried put plastic bags over the male flowers then when they open the pollen will collect. Then move the plant out of the grow space and gather up your pollen in a far away spot. Bag the pollen wash the outside of bags and your hands in bleach. Should be good. Also email the seed company with a picture of your males, reputable vendors will usually give you new seeds or credit to buy new or different seeds.

I've put males with a weak light in small cabinets before. Tilted over a surface easy to collect pollen from.

Pick off the pods which are about to open, until you have a LOT of pods about to open at the same time. Then let it rip and drop all the pollen at once.

If you're looking at long term storage of the pollen, be sure to dry it completely before mixing it with toasted flour and freezing it.

Once a male starts flowering they don't need much light at all. When I want to make seeds I wait til the male starts showing clusters and then put it in another room with ambient light. As soon as the flowers look like they are a few days away from opening I cut that branch off right above a leaf node and then strip the few leaves that may catch the falling pollen. I take several branches like this and put them in a small jar with water in it. Place the branches where they lean out and away from the jar and don't interfere with falling pollen from the other branches.


I then place the jar on a piece of aluminum foil in a closet somewhere out of the way. In a few days the pollen falls on the foil, I take a small water-paint brush and brush the pollen into a small pile. I usually pick 2 or 3 small lower branches on one plant and pull that plant out of the flowering room and paint the pollen on all bud sites on these 2 or 3 lower branches and then trash the male branches and the male plant.


This method consistently gives me several hundred seeds.
