Homegrown feminised autoflowering seeds?
    #834230 - 10/08/18 02:02 AM (2 months, 7 days ago)

Hello there

Due to the high costs of good seeds in my country I will be trying to grow my own.

Reason I need seeds is because I intend to grow autoflowering varieties so obviously can't choose a mother plant for cuttings.

I have got 3 fem autoflowering plants (all different varieties), all just sprouted a day or two ago.

I want to take a cutting from each plant (at a later stage), place cuttings in separate places and use colloidal silver to induce pollen on each of the "cutting plants" in order for them to produce some seeds.

I do not need much seeds so I am fine with the cutting staying relatively small and not growing much before flowering.

I need to know if this idea will work in order to have my own autoflowering feminised seeds? Am I correct to assume that the genetics of each plant should virtually stay the same in the resulting seeds?

Input appreciated. Thanks.

You're better off dedicating one branch on one or all plants. Just make sure not to get any spray on the other branches. And once the pollen is released. You must toss that branch as it's not wise to smoke those buds ddue to the CS. And no genetics will all be different per seed. If you want the same genetics you would need to clone. Which is hard with autos as you can't do it the traditional way by just using cuttings. You would have to clone via tissue culture

Btw with autos you get best results with light schedule of 18 hrs or more throughout the whole grow (veg and flower)

I will be growing outdoors, so I am a bit concerned that the wind will cause the entire crop to be pollinated if I just use a branch on my plant.

It is my plan to place cuttings somewhere else and collect pollen, then manually apply pollen to only selected parts of the plants.

If genetics will be different, will I end up with photoperiod plants instead of autoflowers? Will the resulting seeds just be normal instead of feminized seeds? I intend on keeping all the strains pure, no crossing if I can help it.

If that's the case then cut the branch once pollen sacs start opening. Then place in some water (change water every 12-24 hrs). Have your container on top of some glass so its easier to collect the pollen. Then Air dry for a few days so it can be stored or used.  And no you'll still have auto following seeds. Just genetics will vary from seed to seed. Also no as long as the CS affected the female plant then that pollen will be feminized as there's no male chromosome.
