you can cover branches w/ a bag and shake the hell out of it then take that bag to your female parent and cover her branches and shake.

I've done this before.

  But how do you tell when the plant is ready to release pollen?

I have removed the plant from the garden. Do not wish to do all my plants with pollen.


Can I slice open a pollen sack and get the pollen?

Cut the top off the male with the pollen sacks. Place it in a cup of water. Tilt the cup at an angle so the pollen will be released on a plate when its ready to drop it. It shouldn't take more than 2-3 days.

I wouldn't go about slicing anything open. When its ready it will open.

Are you planning on using the pollen to cross the strain back into itself? Just curious because you are asking how long its good for. IDK the shelf life, but you should keep it in a sealed bag/container. I put silica pks in with my seeds and pollen. Keep it cool, dry, and in a dark location.
