Let's see how it's done.

How to store weed pollen?

The best thanks to storing weed pollen are during a new resealable bag. You'll be able to store pollen in this fashion within the fridge for some days. Alternatively, you'll store it within the freezer for up to 1 year. Some people wish to store their pollen along with flour employing a 1 part pollen to three-part flour ratio.

This helps absorb any moisture and also makes pollination easier by increasing the degree of the pollen collected. Alternatively, you would possibly want to do storing your weed pollen with colloid packs. Whenever storing your pollen, confirm you minimize the possibilities of any moisture entering the container or bag. An honest thanks to doing that is to store your pollen bag inside 1 or 2 other bags (also referred to as double or triple bagging).

How to use weed pollen?

They are doing this by harvesting pollen from their male plants so applying it to female plants that are about 2-3 weeks into their flowering cycle.

By now, the developing buds on the feminine plants will have white wispy hairs. In order to pollinate your plant, you’ll want to use your harvested pollen onto the bud sites (usually located where leaves meet the stem of a plant) by employing a brush. This may cause the buds to develop seeds that might be collected and grown within the future.

Remember, only the bud sites that acquire contact with pollen will develop weed seeds. You'd better apply pollen to parts or all of your female plants. You’ll also want to be sure you directly touch the pistils/hairs on a budding site to make sure the world is well pollinated.

Alternatively, you'll try pollinating your female plants employing a more “natural alternative.” Simply place your male plant within the same room as a female and provide it with some good shakes once or twice daily for 2-3 days.

You can then move your pollinated female plant out of the area and into another growing environment. Just confirm to keep both your male and pollinated female as far as possible from the females you don’t want to pollinate.
