Also Jason congratulations for almost receiving your full 10 stars now you have to get them to have their border around them now your an old timer
congratulations you got all your stars now you have to border them now your an old timer ha ha and it only took 2 years plus i wanted to say your jars look full do you always use full jars an old timer told me to never fill your jars past 3/4 full if you want it to cure proper i found out this is pretty true it does cure better.
Hey thanks! I hope all those stars don't go to my head. I've heard the same thing about filling to 3/4. Some jars are fuller than others. There is still plenty of air space in all the jars. I left the buds big on some and they reach to the top. My big jars would only be 1/2 or less full and I don't have enough empty ones.congratulations you got all your stars now you have to border them now your an old timer ha ha and it only took 2 years plus i wanted to say your jars look full do you always use full jars an old timer told me to never fill your jars past 3/4 full if you want it to cure proper i found out this is pretty true it does cure better.
Well to be honest I'm a major rookie at collecting pollen and that was my first and only time so far. Everything I did was improvising from what I have read and researched. The best thing I think I did was remove the males from my property and select the best of the 3 to finish off maturing at a friends house over 20 miles away. I was very concerned with accidentally pollinating the rest of my crop. When it started really dropping pollen I kind of did what Brother Randall was saying and just shook it, in my case over tin foil. I sifted out the larger plant material, let it dry out overnight and then just collected and put in vials. Those vials are now in an airtight container with silica gel desiccant in my freezer. I've also heard of adding flour to the pollen to reduce moisture and even grains of rice added to the vials but haven't done that. I could have easily filled twice as many vials with pollen but figured what I had was more than enough. I'm planning of popping some of the awesome genetics I've obtained and repeating the process in 2022. I've found out nothing seems to go completely as planned so I'll just take it as it comes and keep plugging along. Producing some awesome feminized pollen and fem seeds is my long term goal.Jason big Question here How did you collect your pollen from your male plants i usually myself just cut branches place into plastic bags and freeze them but i like your system holding in viles please ship me your system love them bud pictures thank you Robert
