Will a male plant bud at all or have resin on the leaves for hash ?
it wont bud at all. the leaves do produce a very small amount of THC for hash.
Basically male plants aren't good for anything. You can salvage for hash or something but that is if you want to hassle with it.
seems weird to throw a plant away, but necessary.
wait stop don't hurt him!! isolate it. if you can otherwise kill it. if you can isolate it like some other room. trim it. train it into one small branch. tie it down. bend it over. whatever. but keep it little. let it grow 2 months. keep it little. now flower it. i wait for pods to burst and banana to hang. let bananas sweel but not open. carefully remove with tweezers. i hold a small brown glass jar under them and them "tap" right off. if flowers open its ok just strip downand wash yourself in laquer thinner and bleach before leaving the room with pollen on you. just kidding about the laquer and bleach. but wash up really good. tap bananas into jar. cap it. i collect about a 1/4 teaspoon of bananas then kill him. now use a very fine modelers paintbrush to apply pollen to 1 or 2 of bottom buds once they show hairs. it needs only to contact the hairs. by the time you harvest you should have about a dozen mature seeds. snip off that little bud. smoke the rest. now pass those seeds out to all your friends. we'll never have to worry about mail order again.
if the plants makes seeds, wont it stop producing resin, or rather, not produce as much as a plant that wasn't pollinated?
i've seeded numerous times. always just a small bud or 2 near the bottom of the plant. i hear plants produce more resins when not seeded. yet i've grown 2 plants side by side 1 seeded 1 not and there is no noticable difference. i have to mark which branch was seeded because i can't tell the difference. once again i am only pollenating 1 SMALL bud on a lower branch.
the resins in the bud you pollenate will be lower. the rest will be okay. that is why this is the best method to use.
I use a little hygro.perox in watering. Would spraying the leaves with it do anything to improve anything?
Why would you do that?
I heard adding O2 when watering helpsthe plants. On one of the free grow movies, the person sprayed his leaves with plane H2O. Just wondering. I was also wondering if I forget to turn my lights on at the 6th hr and turned them on at the 8th hr. Should I give it a couple extra hrs of light. I was going to keep it on for 24hrs just for one day. I heard they can never get too much light. The plants are 4wks old Thanks
buddy of mine kills his powdery mildew with hydrogen peroxide. someone just told me it kills spider mites also. dilute with water. not sure of ratio.
