I’m looking to see what people think of this practice. I’m on another growing forum and one of the growers is trying to make his female have seeds on purpose but only on one branch. I personally love the experimentation aspect of it. He sprayed colloidal silver on his flowering plant on one branch 3x/day for 16 days and now she’s showing pollen sacs.
Of course there is a great discussion going on as to whether the seeds will be viable or have weak genetics prone to herm, whether he should use the pollen on that same flowering plant or use it on another and so on. There’s also one grower who is stating that the CS isn’t really doing it, but it’s merely stressing the plant so she’s herming.
Thoughts on this? If the CS isn’t doing it, does that mean that a person could use any benign substance and spray it on to stress the plant?
I’ve already had a great discussion on here about whether seeds from a hermed plant are viable so we don’t need to get into that part.
