Thatís a good idea snook. I made f2ís of these seeds but itís not what I was planning on growing next so that might be something to do.

I usually let pollinated plants go as long as possible after pollination.
One option is to concentrate on the seeds. Then it's a question of, will that go better if they are put in a veg. or a flower light cycle.
My guess is, the flower light cycle.
I have found the reversion to veg. can take up to 4 months under 24/0 lighting, after the plants have had their flowering cycle disturbed.
Since the seeds are close to being done, you could give them the TLC treatment (good plant care with more light) for another 2 weeks, then move the plants to a lesser light (so that seed set can continue) while you use your main light to grow a new crop of proper buds.
Hey St. P, I hear 4 weeks should be good for seed development but not sure how long theyíve been re-vegging. Also not sure how re-vegging stress affect seed set, I could see the plant rejecting the pollen altogether. So far I found one dried up calyx with a small seed inside, the rest donít seem to have any seed, I squeezed a few and felt nothing solid inside. Thereís also the factor of the low temps, I noticed growth slow to a crawl once temps dropped to the 50ís at night.
Iíve put up the 400w HPS cooltube with exhaust and carbon filter, fucking pain in the ass in such a small tent. Today I found some aphids...fk, just like 2-3 but still. I ordered some lady bugs they should be here next week, I donít wanna spray anything at this point. Just going to let them go for another four weeks and see what happens. Itíl be interesting to see if the plant rejected the pollen or if seed development continues. Iíll post an update here in a few weeks.
Thanks for the input.
