    Just posted this in another thread. First, your desired PPM is 40, second:

    Ok, so my docs that came with my CS generator state the following (using 3 9v batteries wired in series):

    30PPM: distilled water heated to 92 degrees F:
    16 oz water: 96 mins
    24 oz water: 144 mins
    32 oz water: 192 mins

    40PPM: distilled water heated to 112 degrees F:
    16 oz water: 128 mins
    24 oz water: 192 mins
    32 oz water: 256 mins

    This post is old but it is Level One Bullshit.


    I have produced thousands of feminized seeds using feminized seeds. Not one of those seeds that myself or my friends have planted has produced male flowers or "hermed." All of the resulting plants have been female.

    G'day napalesegrizzly23,
    I don't mind you posting my original 2007 thread as this thread, but... why not link to the original and give original author credit? I put a lot of work into creating that thread; it would've taken less than a minute of your time to link to it or provide credit. :)

    And when copy-and-pasting it you didn't include (amongst LOTS of other good information also excluded!) my CREDITS section where I gave credit to those who helped me become able to put that thread together - you owe them just as much as I do! :D

    mike4c4, your colloidal solution from Amazon might be too weak (ie for human consumption not plant sex reversal) :) ... CS solutions have a somewhat toxic effect on plants due to the amount we're using - they look like crap going through the process.

    Peace from Down Under,
    Pheno

    @iajOGrown dude this makes a lot of sense why the green crack had seeds

    is the silver rod reusable, and how many feminized seeds can you make from 3 indoor plants?

    1000s, yes it is reusable

    The cs i used at amazon is the 50ppm version from "silver mountain minerals" never had a problem, used this technique at least 10 times. You will not see anything happening for about 3 weeks. It started getting expensive so i started making my own, never had a problem with flipping with the diy stuff.

    Had to learn on my own= If you are going to make your own CS make sure you clean the piece of silver every ten or so minutes. It gets kinda dirty from the reactions. If you dont clean it a lot of the silver will end up in this dirty build up. Another thing i like to mention is your regular ppm meters will not really work well with CS. For example if it says 15ppm it really means 25ppm or higher. When making CS it can take awhile to get started but once it starts it will speed up since the silver particles actually help the reaction. The silver rod or whatever silver you use doesnt last forever. You can make a lot of cs but the silver starts to shrink. I stop when the ppm meter measures around 21-25. For some odd reason some batches take longer and some take no time at all.Really stoned right now, hope that makes sense.

    stop getting your education from a cereal box. CS changes the plant at the molecular level. It is not just male flowers on a female plant.

    Thanks for the info. Here's what I did with it.

    The key to turning a female plant to male is ...well more Keys than this one, but years ago when I started this procedure I made this mistake...start spraying 2 week prior to 12/12. Some folks say a few days. Some plants are fussy about turning and if not started early before 12/12 you may get it to turn male - but could be sterile (very little pollen) - I have made my own analysis...the more female pistols that develop before the change to male sacks, the higher percentage it has trouble putting out pollen. Start early with the colloidal silver. 2 weeks prior is plenty

    My White Widow had already flowered n I had just put my Mexican Sativa into 12/12 when I started spraying and my White Widow grew balls n the Mexican Sativa is growing bananas.

    hope you have separate rooms for those males. Otherwise it will be a Gene Pool Orgy and you will not know what is what for seeds.

    I have them in separate grow tents. I want a lot of seeds for as many sea of green I can do. I've got a three light rotation, two 2x2x4's n a 2x3x4. They're not big areas but all I want is to grow for me n my brother n we smoke an oz a month. N I'm hoping to get enough pollen to freeze for later. I've got some female autos that you can't clone so I'll be spreading the love. Lol

    I have gotten 600 seeds from the very first cross I did. Probably beginners luck. Timing is everything, doing it this way. Nanners release the pollen upon growth - so don't think they had no pollen, as we typically see them after the pollen is released. It is fun messing with breeding. I have a blueberry that stays very short and has the best buds. It is the size of an Autoflower but holds some nasty fat buds...Another of my favorite is a Mass Sour D X Thai Jamacian...still trying to strengthen the stems a bit more on that. Best tasting stuff on this planet and three others.

    That's awesome. If I ever buy seeds again, it will be to get the strain for my seed collection. I love auto flowering plants.
