Making seeds in a small space

Post by Greenfingers »

Hello all, This has probably been asked before but hey ho.... :morning:

I'm limited to 2 small rooms to grow my meds, one for vegging and one for flowers, is it possible to be able to make seeds without changing to much ?
Also, any tips on the whole seed-making will be much appreciated 8-)

It is doable mate I have just one tent for veg and flower and I still can make seeds, I've made fems and fem x regs crosses

Pick your desired females with one lucky guy and let his drop his bits all over.

Well it's doable of your not too Picky like selection wise.


look for short dude that grows like a female, Sticky male bits is a good trait and strong scent + sticky on stem rubs

Female to look for is like pheno hunting that everyone lucky enough does

YOu can pull the males from the tent and stick them up the corner in the lounge, they'll still keep growing their balls.

Or/and

Just trim the male flowers off as they appear and before they open. Pop in a folded piece of A4 printer paper and fold the edges and top over, leave somewhere warm for a day or two like next to your router, shake it and you'll have a load of yellow pollen in the crease of the paper.

Just get an ear bud to dust bud sites.

Easy fucken peasy.

I did it yesterday with an NL#5 male and a haze lady. :running-around:



Or another way, just let a few male flowers open in the room. There shouldn't be too much flowering going on with the ladies if they were both started the same time, and any beans made will be around the stalks for you when you break the buds up.

Stray pollen gets gone real quick with an increase in humidity if you're worried about it. Or a quick spritz with a water sprayer.

I used a simple lirlle tent 50x50x100cm then just grew them out till week3-4 should really go to full term but just put a zip lock bag and cut then shake let the pollun dry for 24/36hrs then store in fridge so you can be selectful or bring a girl into a tent and let the magic happen around day 21

Leqve a few hours in there then spray her with water before she joins the other girls again

This how I made massive strawberries ( massive d x strawberry colada)
Parents
Dying breed- Massive D #4 (mother) = Shiloh D x OG Eddy
Midwest best - Strawberry Colada (father) = strawberry strudel x Melonaid

I think what im about to try explain is the same or similar to Marcus idea.

I've seen some growers gather the desired pollen from males, 1 or more. Put a black bag over a flowering female plant, make a small hole and pull 1 branch of the female plant through it, so the single branch is poking out of the bag, dust that with the chosen pollen. They then placed a paper bag over the branch you have dusted with pollen for 24 hours to allow the pollen to sit on the branch undisturbed and not blow off onto the rest of the plant. Some would have more than 1 set of pollen ready when doing this, repeat the process with a few branches but each time a different pollen was used. It meant they would end up with some seed free branches and some seeded, multiple crosses on one plant.
