Anyone Else use Aspirin to Feminize their plants

    so, being as I'm kinda new to reversing a plant or even a branch, my entire branch is now looking like this I'm just curious on how close they are to dropping pollen? Does anyone with more experience than me know roughly how long before they start popping open?

    I went pretty heavy on the aspirin mix with mine, it did create the pollen sacs, I have no idea if the pollen is viable yet, I used 8 of the 325mg tablets crushed and mixed in 12oz of water, I knew it was a lil strong but wanted to know for sure whether or not it would work, I'll keep posting on here as the project goes on.

    I throw them outside in winter, a couple of weeks and most turn
    Will give your way a go as well

    As a update from me, pollen must've been viable cause by the looks of things I am going to have a LOT of seeds.... I mean A LOT of seeds, so... Yea, aspirin seems to work just fine

    Congrats on your success getting pollen. Nice job.

    I'm curious how often you sprayed. Also were you concentrating the spray on the nodes rather than spraying randomly?

    About how many days of spraying before the girl "turned" ?

    I know a bit about colloidal silver, lite bleed and rodelization method to get fem seeds, and am intrigued by the aspirin method and your progress so far.

    Using the aspirin method might erm "take the head aches" of colloidal silver out of the picture.

    Ive been trying colloidal silver for a few weeks now, plant was late in flower so I guessed if the CS didn't work then Rodelization would. Neither seems to be sticking. Should I water with aspirin?

    As a side note I watered maybe 3 times with aspirin on my first ever grow and my whole plant had tiny little seeds in the bud.

    So is aspirin a definite way to produce hermi's or does it actually reverse a female?

    well I didn't water with it, I used it like colloidal silver, I crushed 8 aspirin and mixed it in 12oz of water and sprayed a branch everyday for a few weeks ... So as far as watering goes idk, I foliar sprayed mine

    yes, I focused on nodes and early bud formations, and it took about 2-3 weeks before I seen the change and was positive about it, in retrospect I wish I had timed my grow better as I'm using autos for this, but am getting success on 2/3 plants on pollinating so I can't complain to much but has by far been the easiest way I've seen... Unless I find problems with my seeds I doubt ill be going back to silver

    Maybe it was just a coincidence then!

    Wish Id realised aspirin worked before I bought so much colloidal silver :/!

    here's some pics of the pollinated buds, the one with the long lanky buds (first 3 pics)is auto ultimate probably has about 4 weeks left, it is self pollinated, and the one showing purple (last 2 pics)is wild Thailand Ryder, it's pretty short fat and chunky and probably has 2-3 weeks left, it it wasn't pollinated I would probably chop it sooner but I want all them seeds to develop fully before I harvest any

    Little confused with that asprin shit ... Plus i am fucking smokin out.

    Will this mix help " force Flower " an " auto " that hasnt sexed yet ?
    Or make a plant flower earlier ?

    I am not interested in seeding right now ... I got too many.

    no it forced male flowers out of a female plant so just reversed it

    JDMase Well-Known Member

    Not to mention the male flowers have female pollen, so essentially creates feminized seeds (all female)

    Has that been proven yet?

    JDMase Well-Known Member

    Pretty sure that it has. Ill see if I can source references for you.

    colloidal Silver works by being composed of particles so small, that they can easily pass through the plants cells. Once the Colloidal Silver particles are in the plant, they bond to the existing copper molecules. Normal female cannabis plants, use these copper molecules to produce the hormone Ethylene, which is what "tells" them that they are supposed to make normal female flowers (calyxes with pistils). When the Colloidal Silver bonds with the copper molecules, this is inhibited and the plant instead produces pollen sacs.
    *Note: These are still female flowers. Just female pollen sacs. Not male flowers.


    Ergo female x female = female offspring
