    Say...

    The sacs are starting to drop pollen quite a bit now...

    Was wondering... could i start clipping some of the bloated sacs and just drop them into a tupperwear container to dry then shake out the pollen?

    Or whats the best way to harvest it?

    I am in still air and I tip the plant and knock it onto paper and use or store the collected pollen. You don't have to dry it, it needs to be stored in a dry container.

    I usually just take cuttings like I was cloning. Pick the limbs w the most ripe/ready pollin sacks. Put them in a coffee cup of water the place that in the middle of a glass baking dish, make sure no water get in the dish. Then just give them a shake a couple times a day. The pollin will collect on the bottom of the glass pan. Then just scoop it up and it’s ready to use or store

    Sorry... lost track of this thread...

    So far so good. I have four good seeds ...lol

    I ended up just taking cuts and snipping the bloated sacs into tupperwear. Then i got a paint brush and started painting up some buds.

    That was 21 days after flipping the female to flower. Everybody said 6 weeks minimum for good seed development and im almoat there. About 10 days to go. I can see seeds poking out of calyxs and thTa really cool. The 4 seeds i found were plucked out of those, odd, lone calyxs you find on stems just below the nodes. I feel like a proud papa... lol

    Ill get some pics up later...

    And now an obvious question comes to mind...

    This white russian came from serious seeds... both the mom and dad. A very stable strain. Not a lot of variety in phenos. Ive seen about 4 over about 30 beans popped. Anyway, the female i chose was based on size, leaf ratio, node length and yield (from previous experience). The male pheno i chose was very similar in size and structure. Almost identical really.

    So... will the offspring be less likely to produce those other 3 phenos i have seen? Or is it always a crapshoot?

    Well... i thought i was careful to pollinate only a couple branches. Turns out ima sloppy painter. The whole plant is infested with seeds.... oops...lol

    On the bright side... i have a lifetime supply of white russian seeds...lol

    GOODNESS, thats a load of seeds man,

    Did you turn the rest into oil or anything?

    I have a FireOG, and grew a male bagseed that got 44inches tall in 40 days from seed, 12/12 from seed, and shook it like an idiot over the entire plant, LOL.. dumb ass i am. I probably would of gotten a got few onions,

    I cloned her, and is in flower, so i get another chance, and going to stress the clone for seeds,
