    A call out to those who prefer to use aspirin to turn their females even males...?

    over STC, Colloidal silver etc..?

    i've read about that, but haven't had the room to start a breeding program. if it works, sounds a lot easier than making and storing CS, i'd definitely be in favor of it as long as its effective

    I've done some research, but so far I haven't found any definitive proof that it works as well as CS. I would love to find an easier alternative to making, and/or buying the silver solution.

    My concern, many breeders end up toking their

    STS/C Silver sprayed plants by mistake or thru ignorance

    so thinking toking salic sprayed weed ain't so tough..?

    like my buddy did 2 weeks ago, and is now breathing hard ..lol

    I prefer to trash the plants once I have gained the femmed pollen

    yeah i don't think its a good idea to smoke a plant treated with CS, or STS, gibb might not be too bad, but i'd still rather pass. salycylic acid is in aspirin, i'm not sure what burning it will do to it, but of all the chemicals i'm aware of that will fem a plant, it seems like the safest one to consume

    I had an image saved with "instructions" for this method. But it was watering The plants with The mixture.
    Didn't have a ratio.
    Found a ratio via Google.
    Had several spare small clones So I chucked em into the flower room to get side lighting and try it out just out of curiosity.
    Clones didn't herm in 3 weeks.
    Ramped up the dosage.
    Threw the PH all out of whack (in promix)
    And the medium attracted tiny white bugs. They didn't go after plants.
    Tossed clones and segregated one in a closet.
    It stunted the crap out of it and it just died. This was after 6 weeks total in 12/12.
    I was thinking of trying some cheap calloidial silver ointment (kinda like neosporin) as an experiment just for shits and giggles.

    just use gibb. it cant be that harmfull its used extensivly in agriculture and horticulture some fruit and veges have had the crap sprayed outa them with gibb.

    a mate tried asprin with no luck, cs works well but spray every day is a nuisance.

    I had a virus problem last spring so I sprayed with one aspirin to a gallon of water sprayed 4-5 times (tomato growers do it for viruses) it didn't change any of them, no herms, no seeds just big ol fat buds..

    People use colloidal silver to treat lung problems using a nebulizer. Not sure how safe that is though.

    Anyone got a way to Fem that does not fuck the bud over?
    Planning on CS, but want to smoke the harvest.
    With sources. Asprin is interesting, but I would assume the dosage would have to be high.
    Would need a credible source and Would not want to waste a flowering period.
    Planning on making FEM GDP and Purple Dreams.

    I use light for creating fems, chem free smokable bud.
    I've had 100% success rate at creating nuts on females plants :)

    Got a tutorial?
    As I would much prefer the natural way over CS spray.
    PM if possible.
    Do you get the nuts keep the pollen then polinate plants next roud or is it possible to get seeds first round?
    New to breeeding fem and want to do it the correct way without runing bud.

    That guy admitted he made it himself. First you have to have very expensive equipment to test the ppms of nano silver as a regular pen wont work accurately.

    Second he admitted to taking large quantities. Using lab grade stuff at normal doses wont do thay to you.

    I've used all kinds of nano silver products in the form of scent killing products for deer hunting.

    I still wouldn't smoke a treated plant.

    If one must smoke the plant you can cover the plant with a trash bag and spray one branch or use a liitle brush to brush it on one bud.

    I hear you. And I don't need to get that deep in the weeds to know I'm not consuming it in any form or fashion. When I do it I spray the whole plant. I do it away from everything and allow it to dry before returning to the room. I decide how tall to let it get by how much pollen I want. Ive got plenty of cuttings.

    After she drops her pollen it's off the dumpster! At least for me.
