    Thanks, man! Yeah, that’s definitely the Purple Kush/Purple Afghani x Hindu Kush genetics. I really want to breed it if it’s male. Like, I’m going to chuck it at everything that even sounds interesting enough to cross it with.

    I’m thinking that, too. It doesn’t really matter anyway, because if it is a male, I am harvesting the shit out of that pollen. I see what could be a single female preflower, but it could also just be mutated growth.

    You'll know soon enough without a doubt. I've been fooled too many times to pull anything early. I just wait until I'm 100% now. As I'm sure you know it takes a bit even after the grapes/balls are noticeable before trouble starts. The upside is your cool either way. I'm not going to say what I want to because i don't want to jinx myself......lol

    Haha. Alright. And, yeah, I know it takes a couple of weeks before balls start to pop. Thanks, bro. Your viewpoint is appreciated, as always.

    Haha! Yeah, most definitely! Thanks for that ego boost. These COBs really help keep noding tight and branches and meristem nice and thick.

    Yeah, thanks, man! I forget, one of these indirectly comes from you at some point along the way, and the other indirectly comes from @Grandpapy. I think the SR-71 PK was Pap’s, and it was then backcrossed for the SR-71 PK by you-know-who, and the Sour D was your stock.

    My experience is with 250w & 400w HID as well. I haven't started my grow yet but the box is done and I'm ready to go. I've got a 210w cob fixture that is
    pretty nice so I look forward to getting growing. :leaf::leaf:

    I just did that with my Querkle the other day.

    How do you harvest your pollen? I've been using parchment paper with a crease down the middle, bend the stems carefully over the paper and shake. then transfer to the tube.

    This is actually my second time collecting, I usually just let nature do its thing.

    That's how I collect mine except I use black paper to make it easier to see the pollen. Make sure it is dry. A few grains of dry rice won't hurt. Freeze for the longest storage. You will get 8 months to a year when freezing it.

    I would wait and my gut says female.

    I was considering using a large-dram vial with a wide mouth to shake it into. Otherwise, I was considering an elaborate bag tent. I’ve honestly never bred anything or collected any pollen yet.

    I’m thinking the same. Either way, I’ll be happy.

    Pretty sure you’ll be satisfied with that. :eyesmoke:

    So literally drop a few grains of rice in the tube you see there, and stick that in the deep freezer out in my garage? And should be good to go?

    The rice, I’m sure, is to absorb moisture. Like when you drop your phone in a puddle and you stick it in a container of rice for a night or two to draw any water out.

    i have viable pollen that is over 4 years old. used it about 3 months ago.

    • i collect on black construction paper
    • i dry for 24 hours on same paper
    • i create individual servings in construction paper folded envelopes
    • i put all the little envelopes in a mason jar and keep it in the freezer
    • the only time its out of the freezer is for me to grab one pack to use

    i will be using several packets coming up soon as i got a bunch a girls to hit up.

    Yea, I figured that part, but wasn't sure if I should place the rice with the pollen or in a pouch next to it or a bag in a bag or something.

    But I like @Sour Wreck 's idea of drying it out over night.

    However, I will likely use all the pollen in the next year, so I may just refrigerate.
