Newbie wants to verify learnt information.
    #664212 - 03/30/13 11:18 AM (3 years, 8 months ago)

I am new and haven't started growing anything yet. I find organized sources of information for cannabis growing very scarce and lots of people on the internet like to "be cool" and spread crap that is wrong.

I am asking someone with experience to verify my plan

1) seeds from banks are expensive so I plan on buying only once per strain

2) I cannot find timers in my country and am too lazy to put together an arduino circuit so i'll use autoflowering strains

3) I will order feminized autoflowering strains, and light poison one or two of the plants to obtain anthers, and self or cross pollinate them to obtain a large number of seeds for future grows.

4) the other seeds will mature and flower normally as my prize for being the awesome person i am.

Can't do that.

I will be using an aeroponic setup for its low maintenance requirement, so I will need 2 misters..1 for the grow and 1 as backup in case the other fails
also i will need a ppm measure...I like the pen shaped ones on amazon, do you guys think they're good ?

I am going to make something similar to this setup with my own inventions on concepts for CFL light bulb placement.

I am asking someone with experience to verify my plan

1) seeds from banks are expensive so I plan on buying only once per strain Not always true.  There are plenty of great breeders who sell seeds at $20-30/pack.  No seeds are worth $75 or more for a ten pack.

2) I cannot find timers in my country and am too lazy to put together an arduino circuit so i'll use autoflowering strains Can you not order from ebay or any retail site and have one shipped?  That seems like a pretty crazy reason to abandon all 'standard' strains.  I got a TORK 1103 off of ebay for like $30..surely you could have one shipped for less than a hundred?  There's really no reason to be growing autos inside.

3) I will order feminized autoflowering strains, and light poison one or two of the plants to obtain anthers, and self or cross pollinate them to obtain a large number of seeds for future grows.  Why would you get feminized seeds and stress them to get pollen as opposed using 'standard' seeds?  Is it to make all the seeds female too?  That's a serious question, I don't have any experience.

4) the other seeds will mature and flower normally as my prize for being the awesome person i am.

Well first, welcome to the community :cookiemonster:


Second, self pollinating an auto-flower will result in an auto-flower.  And any decent feminized strain isn't made my stressing it to make an autoflower to begin with.


Third, I would go with soil.

Fourth, No trading of seeds here.  This is a U.S. based server.  Trading seeds in the U.S. is illegal.

Thanks everyone for the quick replys.

to Angus, yes, I believe that stressing a feminized seed to produce anthers to pollinate itself will produce feminized seeds....it makes sense, where would the male chromosome come from ?
(I haven't tried though, this is an educated speculation.)

hawksapprentice, thank you.
but i am talking about feminized autoflowering strains.
I think soil is to messy and I am not ready to introduce pests and shit like that into my bedroom.
I won't trade here then...I respect the rules :laugh:

Maestro and Mrshroom....I think i will just do that


however I am very fascinated by the shear speed of autoflowering strains...and people say that 1 plant could produce 100+ seeds....can you imagine what i will do to the public parks around my house with 50 seeds..... :laugh:

Okay, you're not understanding what I said.  Or actually I wasn't that clear, wrote it when i woke up.


You can stress a plant and make it hermie out, but that's not the best way to go about it.

You use colloidal silver to produce the male pollen sacks  Not by stress.  Try and do some searches on ways to make feminized seeds.


Also buy this book. http://www.google.com/aclk?sa=l&ai=ChFSz41dXUeniBqr_iQKz7YCgDu7u_qcDrsSU10fjlZjN1AEIBhABKAJQj5nypvv_____AWDJhv6LzKTUGaAB8oC76gPIAQepAi0EHx18fLk-qgQgT9DWZRW_v8ES2liHqgVuKwEQ2N8CZFbY0UJByP6z0MbABQWgBiaAB_b-xBXgEvrpkf6SsduUJg&sig=AOD64_17BQDgAo4hO8tvali6aqdoSiQYAQ&ctype=5&ved=0CJABEPQO&adurl=http://www.bookdepository.com/book/9781878823236%3Fredirected%3Dtrue&rct=j&q=jorge+cervantes

Agree with hawks 100%

plus timers I am sure are sold world wide. Try a hardware store, ebay or a grow shop. We have a few sponsers here that I am sure could accommodate your needs.

Good luck! And welcome to The Growery!
