A Guide To Colloidal Silver

    Did you read the OP? I posted pics of clear CS, and of a treated plant, in the OP. Amber works fine, but clear works as well, and has smaller particles.

    The plant in the OP was actually treated with amber CS, just to see if it would work, and it does, but I wouldn't aim for that. It isn't necessary to let it run so long that it turns amber or grey. It works perfectly, when it's clear, and doesn't have large particles, so there should be less buildup on the plant's surfaces, and more buildup within the plant's tissues. The only reason it was amber, is because I hadn't added an air stone to my generator, when that batch was made, and the particles agglomerated more than they do when the water is kept moving with the bubbles.

    So far, pretty much everyone who has followed my guide, has had great success.

    That means your particles are larger than they would be in a clear suspension. It very well might work just fine for your plant reversal purposes, but you didn't have to leave it so long. Were you not using an air stone, or not cleaning your electrodes often?

    Excuuuuse me. I'm a pot smoker and forget stuff.

    With human you want very little silver. It will turn your skin colors. With plants you want to inhibit hormones.

    I'm not talking dark color. I mean clear with an amber hue.

    Every guide I've read has suggested amber color. Yes I clean my electrodes and used air.

    I've tried clear all the way to amber. In my experience and opinion amber works better on more plants and faster show times.

    I used a iPhone charger (5 volts i believe) as my power source and a air pump for bubbles and motion in the jar. Ran it for seven hours the first day, then three hours the next. Had to wipe the black shit off the electrodes about every half hour. Laser light shines a bright line through it. I would take a picture but the damn flash washes out the laser light. Mine came out Amber colored.

    I know the purposes of use are different for humans and p lants, but the method of how it enters the tissues is the same. It has to have small enough particles, in order to penetrate into living tissues, unless you are just using it topically, which isn't the case for plants. A side-by-side test of clear CS and amber CS would be cool.

    From everything I've read, I still would recommend people keeping it clear.

    See that's the thing. Every guide for plants I've read says to go for amber. I'm not talking dark color. Just a hue.

    This is from multiple breeders guides from the top selling breeders.

    I say use what works. I've had the best luck with the amber.

    Confirmed. I made a batch of cs that looks a little like piss, and I get a zero reading on ec and ppms...not sure how others are getting a ppm reading from their cs. Haven't used it to generate pollen yet, but it sure is working wonders on my athletes feet.

    Im making cs silver right now and its just about 15 hours, started with water ar 4ppm now its 5ppm..Laser shines nicely through it...

    Going to stop it now as I guess its done? 15 hours one ppm increase and laser shines very bright and clean through it...Water is mostly clear

    Are you saying that you started the process with 4ppm water, as opposed to 0ppm distilled/RO water? If so, that can have an effect on the resulting composition of the solution/suspension you've created. It might still work, and looks good, so it may still work. If you get a nice laser beam, it has a decent amount of silver in it. The laser reflects off of the microscopic bits of silver in the water. I wouldn't ingest or topically apply it to an animal, though.

    Well the 4 ppm water was store bought water I purchased, funny because the other bottle water I purchased before this said 24ppm, what a rip off...

    I hope its good enough to reverse my plant

    I have been doing this for a long time. I have gotten pollen for other cannabis plants using your method. Finally i have my generator and produced great colodial silver and they plant grew pollen sacks but no powdery pollen like on a male. The balls just fall off the plant if i shake it. I get very little pollen. What is going wrong. Thank you for you post.

    MedellinBoyd New Member

    Since the plant is female and still has resin. Is this resin keeping the pollen from being dry and fluffy, powdery .

    Hey mannn, this kind of discrimination is BS mannn...Whats wrong with Cheech and Chong? Cheech and Chong were pioneers of the MJ movement...Try and do a little research next time mannn....and why morgan freeman? That guy is bogus mannn...haven't you read the news?

    Cant go wrong with the T mist . Used it on my first 2 breeding projects until I moved on to bigger and better things than that

    Also still had a 1/4 bottle left after 2 seed runs

    Just a comment on an excellent how to... I just successfully used some that is six years old. Stored in the original plastic spray bottle I put it in six years ago. Used the 9v method and left it until I had some decent branching off the silver. Sprayed an Auto Lowryder 2 branch at around 7-8 weeks, probably 10 sprays over 10 days and I've now got sacks.

    I’m currently hitting a plant with TMist that is 9 months old or so. It was stored in the house in a dark drawer. We will see.

    EverythingsHazy Well-Known Member

    Thank you!

    I know that different types of plastic can have different/no effects on the mixture, but I haven't heard of anyone using CS as old as yours, before. That's great to hear. Congrats on the flip!

    Hi, i was wondering what the negitives of selfing a plant with cs would be?

    HighLowGrow Well-Known Member

    You get a bunch of pollen sacs. Can’t think of anything negative. Only reason to use CS on a plant is to “reverse” a fem to create pollen sacs. The pollen will stick to a white hair and make a fem seed on the same plant. :bigjoint:

    I’m currently doing a seed run on the Stomper. Low bud site. I like Stomper so much, I'm hearing a BKR x Stomper mix in the near future.

    HLG, if I may,...…...when you self a plant, U will get a lot less seed , than using pollen you've saved , at optimal time , on a different plant , but the point im trying to establish , is , ...lets say I had 2 Northern lights, , u flip 1 earlier than the other , so u can spray it , 4 weeks later u flip the other , so as your pollen & flower are both ready together at the optimal seed production level, would these seeds be as stable or true to type as 1 northen lights , selfed ?
    & how many seeds would u expect from selfing a small plant say 18 inches , compared to using 2 plants
    Hope that makes sence !!
