RE: Indoor Garden Update - Males and Females Identified
You are viewing a single comment's thread:
Are the male plants of no value? Back in the day, we smoked everything. No one cared if the plants were male or female. Lots of seeds, but not really any buds to speak of. Do you just throw them out?
So the netting is for support? How does this promote bud growth? They've grown so much since you put that netting in just a couple days ago!
Yes the males provide the value of pollinating the females. If not pollenating, just throw them out. (after pollination they are usually thrown out as well.)
I've pollenated once, it was pretty easy and straight forward. Just brush the pollen onto the pistils where the buds will start forming. That's all it takes.
Male plants do not produce bud that can be smoked, only little pollen sacks that contain the pollen. They produce no bud at all. If you see a plant with pollen sacks and bud forming, this is a hermaphrodite plant, which starts as female. Male plants do not turn both, but female plants can and sometimes do from being stressed, either by light cycle interruptions, or physical stressors .
If you had bud with seeds in it, that means it was a female plant that was pollenated and caused it to create seeds. If it was super heavy with seeds and barely any bud, it sounds like an intentional rip off, or maybe just super "bottom of the bag" stuff.
Yes it helps support the buds when they become too top heavy and would otherwise tip over, and this support also let's the plant know it is supported which promotes heavier growth.
I've never tried this method before so it will be interesting to see if the difference is substantial.
Thank you for the kind words and intuitive interest in learning more about cannabis my friend!
There's so much to know! If I put this much effort into my vegetable garden, I'll bet I could feed my whole block. Hopefully, I won't have to.
Yeah, we might have to when the zombies realize we were right :D
I had a zombie call me today to apoligize for being hateful to me two years ago! So yeah, some of them are coming around.
She was right.....
Watch out for zombies in the garden this year....
