    I have 2 males in a seperate room so i can get a few more seeds. I need to pollinate them with the female (obviously) and im wondering when the best time to do it is.
    The males are dropping pollon now from the biggest growing balls. The females will be ready for harvest about 1st week of january.
    Should i do it now? and which way would you recommend. I was thinking of putting a bag over the 2 males and shaking to get a bag full of pollen, and then cover the female with the bag and shaking a`few time in hour intervals?!?!?

    Yeahh If i were you id pollinate them NOW if the females only have a few weeks left, and yes the bets way to pollinate say just one bud of the female,
    get some clear plastic, try coat the inside of the plastic with pollen and wrap it around approproate bud, if you only want a few seeds anwyay.
    occasionaly give your plant some air by taking the plastic off, just be careful and u shud just have one bud full of seeds!
    Jolly, hope that helps dude.

    I think it is around 20 seeds per bud. I wouldnt waist a whole plant to seed production. Just paintbrush the hairs of the buds you want to pollinate with your airflow off. Best time to pollinate is 2-3 weeks into flower so the seeds have time to mature.

    yeah, i do what a whole plant to go to seeds. and i cant really say how long they have been in flower as they are LR2's! all i know is that they are about 6 weeks in and starting to produce crystals all over the leaves, so i think i need to do it soon
