This plan was in progress for a few weeks before I read @slain ’s thread, I fact I had started to spray Colloidal Silver at 50 ppm and had sprayed my chosen female tree times over three days before I injected her with Silver Nitrate.
I started by buying 25 grams of Silver Nitrate from Amazon. I measured out 0.1 grams – had to break out the reloading scale for that one - an amount about the size of 1/4 grain of dry rice… I then mixed the SN with 10 ml of Distilled water, mixed well and injected 2 units (20% of 1 ml) on a 1 ml syringe. I injected the plant low on the main stalk below any branching. I believe the SN mixture went into the hollow part of the stem.
The photos are from three days later – about 7 days total into 12/12 for the female who may identify as a male (FIDM)). The females are 7 days ahead (so, 14 days) of the pollen donor.
I see no balls yet but I will keep you updated, the plant is in transition, no cotton tops but it is showing pre-flower.
