    I've had this clone only strain for years and wanted a way to preserve it without dishing it off to trusted folks who end up bailing on it's less than stellar yield.

    I bought some colloidal silver from amazon, put it in a spray bottle and sprayed a UW bitch every day of 12/12 for about 3-4 weeks until she started to throw balls. I then moved "it" upstairs (she was in a dwc bucket) and let it do it's thing.

    The UW normally finishes pretty quick but I let it go until it couldn't take it anymore. It's now drying for the seed harvest! I plucked one off last night and it's small, dark, hard and mature. :-)

    I also collected pollen off the UW and will hit branches of my newer strains too. I have a very nice Grape Puff pheno that finishes fast and packs a nice frosty yield.

    Ultimately I'm looking to add some weight to the silly frostiness of the UW.

    The breeding games have begun!

    Sounds awesome man! I've had UW once and the trich coverage was insane. Very hashy tasting, and just absolutely covered in resin. Have you got a specific strain to add weight to er?

    Thanks for your reply. The trich coverage was the main reason that I have kept this strain for so long.

    I have done regular crosses before with male x female but this time I used silver to reverse sex on a nice clone-only strain and it worked!

    I have a new (to me) Gage Green Grape Puff [Grape Stomper 3A x Joseph OG] that looks like it could add some good weight. I also have Blackwater and a J-1, an indica and a sativa, respectively. I have a few other strains I have not tried yet, Sour Diesel, Cherry Kush, Platinum Kush, etc. All are outside right now and being prepped for a mating. Time to chuck some pollen!

    It is also really nice to know that I have UW x UW seeds as a backup.

    I took some pics if the reversed plant but only with my iPhone so nothing decent. I just sent some of them out to a buddy in Oregon to use as testers.

    Reviving an old thread. I made this quite a while ago and then a lot of shit went down. I left California for a few years but moved back a bit more than a year ago and after a reasonable outdoor attempt I'm back at it again but on a much smaller scale.

    I've attached a few pics of my UW selfie. It's a long story but my old partner recently gave me the S1's I made from this plant but all of the pollen you see went to waste (as far as I know).

    I now have the reagents to make STS and am gonna self the S1. I'll report back but for now here are some pics of the original selfing.
