Micro Feminization The easy way.

So I’ve downsized my set up for making feminized seeds. When outdoor season came this year, I found that my seed stash had gotten a tad bit crusty… Recently moved into our new log cabin and all my seeds were stored in a crafting case for beads… Basically they became bird seed after the case was left in heated storage area and wasn’t closed completely… oops my bad. So I came up with this . Start a couple of regular seeds and keep in one gallon pots. At beginning of week 4 take the tops and put into micro dwc. 12/12 lighting cuttings at full strength veg nutes and start c.s. on mother’s also in 12/12 light. This is where I am . ( I got lucky starting regular seeds for outdoors. A few monster cropped smelly girls.)

All under a 4 ft shop light. This has to be the easiest way to make fem seeds ever. How is it it took me 3 years to finally get to this juncture. And look at how much pollen I’ll get to throw on those outdoor blue widows.

O yeh, for all those wondering about root temperature… I have no idea…im guessing room temperature obviously. Algae wont be an issue since the light intensity and dissolved oxygen ratio are in play. Algae can have some nutes if it likes… lol

Should end up with around 40-50 seeds off this experiment.

Nice idea. I’m going to be doing some fem seed making after 20 years of pollen chucking. Lots of strains I want to do over the winter so keep male branches separated while collecting pollen is going to be my biggest challenge.

I’ll be using STS to get some girls to switch and most likely be cloning in small pots of ProMix. Easier for me than mini-DWC units tho I did make a DWC type cloner from a small Rubbermaid tub.

:peace:

30 + are visibly huge and many not so huge. I’m guessing 40 or better so far. Can’t wait for them to start turning ripe.

Use R.O. water and follow exactly. P.H. UP UNTIL YOU HIT 5.8. I let the experts chemist’s figure it out…lol. I mix 2 gallons at a time. Make sure to mix cal mag first. Then grow…and now for bloom just 1tsp.per gallon for 2 weeks then up 1tsp. Per gallon every 2 weeks. Until you end up with 3 tsp. Per gallon of bloom . Right now I’m at 1080 ppm. P.H. 5.82 add p.h up last,duh
