Little update on the Mr Miss Universe x Harlequin in his own tin foil forest.
Big stretch during flower. Hmmm.
I might have over-estimated when harvest time would be. Looks like the next week should be all I'll need.
Looks like he's made himself at home, chilling with his balls hanging out lol.
The kief box is a great idea
Little purple starting to show on the tips of the flowers.
Any day now!
The leaking is starting to ramp up.
Start the harvest in the next day or so.
Leaks are now constant.
I am ready.
Might try vacuum storage to see how long I can make them go.
Next 3 days, He'll be rabbit food too.
Crap. My fridge is dirty!
How did you like the Miss Universe 99?
lets hope all that preparation makes for long storage... Fingers crossed
The plant is producing rally well. Smells like a cross between some kind of fruit and a little bit of forest floor (could be the mulch).
I like the multi jars for storing the pollen. I think I'm gonna go the vacuum seal route this time as well. I tried storing in a test tube in a cool cabnit, but it didn't work out.
Works really well.
I am going to vac the last couple that I gather.
Some related pics.
how does that work then, do you need to leave that lid on the jar afterwards i guess?
are you putting dessicant inside? That is the key to making it last a long time.
those guys in the video are taking a shitload of pollen! I don't let the males get that far along, I like to take a small amount of pollen and then cull them before they start spewing pollen all over the grow area.
See the lid, 1 Adam 12
it just looks like blue tape??
Its a Jar inside a Jar
By putting a vacuum on the big jar, the little jar also gets some of the vacuum effect (not as strong; don't know why).
Once the little jar is under vacuum, I can open the big jar and store the little one.
cool i'm in the market for a vacuum pump for purging BHO i'll have to find some containers like that. will it remove the moisture when it removes the air too i guess, allowing for longer storage?
There are some serious vacuum pumps. This is a Suzy Home Maker model.
Ever work on auto brakes?
The Might Vac
This is a slightly better vacuum pump.
and there are cheap ones that work great - although I'd be worried about sucking out the pollen along with the air:
Maybe some, but the yellow pile remains on the bottom.
