G13 Labs C99 Fem breeding project

Recommended Posts

I decided to take one of my c99 clones and experiment with store bought Colloidal silver. The required ppm seems to be a debatable topic, ranging from 18ppm to 100ppm. For the purpose of this experiment I will be using Biosil 20ppm. Let's see how it goes. 57b8edcc3c570df18716ef620aa9fd66.jpg

Could those be sacks? I think they're tiny little sacks. Still in vegging mode, extended the veg spraying by a week due to a few days that I had to leave town... 7ed9276fd719855a76424b4a5b513ca7.jpg

Nice, so seems to be working?

You plan on breeding the plant with itself or?

Nice, been quite a while though.

I can't see any balls on my plants yet, using STS. Hopefully something by this weekend.

Have you stopped spraying and waiting for growth now?

Cool. So just a few stupid questions here.

You doing this to get feminised seeds right?

Is the colloidal silver forcing the plant to grow pollen, or is it stressing the plant to where

it changes to an hermaphrodite? Will the seeds be totally feminised, or will there be chances of them being hermaphrodites?

Sorry for all the questions, just trying to get my head around this. :-blazed

Yes this is for feminized seeds, the CS is absorbed through the foikage which causes the flowering. It is not due to stress, so your risk of hermies is directly related to your growing environment and will not be due to the CS

It stops the production of Ethylene which from what I recall and this causes the plant to produce male parts and pollen.

 

If you have a plant which hermies, the seeds are more likely to hermie as well. With STS or CS, since the pollen is not created due to stress, the chance of higher hermies from seeds is heavily reduced.

 

@Trailblazer420 very nice! Mine are not showing balls yet, how long until the balls have ripened and drop pollen?

Judging by the size of some of these, they should open in the next few days.

I have selected a few females to cross with which are ready and waiting to be pollinated :)

C99 will obviously be the only pollinator...

Strains awaiting ball popping:

Pineapple Express (unknown genetics)
Sour Diesel (unknown genetics)
Mango Kush (unknown genetics)
Bruce Banner (@greenkush genetics)
GSC x BB (@greenkush genetics)
GDP X BB(@greenkush genetics)
Gorilla Glue (unknown genetics)
Royal Gorilla x BB (@greenkush genetics)
Cinderella 99 (G13 Labs) - 3rd generation


Other strains are still to young to capitalize on the fem pollin and will have to wait for the next round, however, it may be a while...

Wow, as soon as a few days.

So how long from when you first saw balls to them opening?

Would be nice to have a rough time line for my plants.

nice man, where can you find colloidal silver locally? is it like a normal store bought thing.

 

Have researched seeding, but have not looked around yet for product

I believe Trailblazer420 got his from Dischem. It was the highest ppm he could find.

The alternative to CS is STS, but it can be a bit expensive. I'm giving it a try at the moment.

Whats STS full name?

I will have a look at dishchem though next time I am near

STS is Silver Thiosulphate Solution.

It s a mixture of Silver Nitrate and Sodium Thiosulfate. The Silver Nitrate is expensive, over R500 for 25g. However it lasts long as you use 0.5g to make a 500ml solution which is then further diluted to form the STS.

Correct, Dischem, Biosil is 20ppm, where as silver labs is 18ppm.

Ita on the shelves, generally used as like an immune booster of sorts.

I'm going to say about 14 days, however, it depends at what size you first spotted the balls. I think I may have a few that will pop around Sunday-ish.

evening mr.blazer did the STS come from local if you don't mind me asking....

 

Another random question can DIY bottled Collodial lose its mojo...
