I DOUBT ANYBODY HAS EVER ASKED THIS QUESTION! LOL I am currently growing like 11 plants and they are all from feminized seeds that I bought. I got a few regular seeds from a friend from his last grow and his plants grew faster than any plant I have ever seen, they also never had any pest problems, and the bud was amazing. I just planted one of them and basically I am asking how I could guarantee that the plant will be a MALE and NOT a FEMALE. I want this plant to be male because I would like to specifically pollinate 1 of my auto flowers and 1 of my other Non Auto flower plants so I will have some seeds for my next grow. I know I can almost guarantee a male by letting the plant grow its whole life in a 16 oz cup and by giving it a small amount of fertilizer, but does anybody know any ways that might be more effective. I do not care if the outcome is a hermaphrodited plant because I read that when you pollinate a female with a hermaphrodite the outcome is feminized seeds (Ed Rosenthal's Growers Handbook). So if anyone know any info on getting 100% males everytime please let me know! Also I am going to pollinate the plants by putting pollen in a plastic bag, covering a nug, and shaking the pollen onto the nug. For 24 hours I will keep the plant inside under CFL's and shake it off the next day. Then move it outside back into the strong outside sun. Will this work? I dont really care if I get a few seeds in my other bud... I am basically asking, what are the best ways to STRESS THE SHIT out of a plant so it become a male.
