I run 3 carbon scrubbers and I grow little. 1 scrubber is in our kitchen.
I can say carbon air filters can make all the difference. I have had K-9 units go by, no bark.
Carbon air filters are easy to make.

Thanks JanSteen but I'm good, I have one now and currently building a second

I'm not JanSteen, must of been buzzed a little.

I agree though that a home made carbon filter can be every bit as good as a store bought filter.

That looks so cool... that's after only 2 treatments??

STS seems to be a far better choice than colloidal silver which I've read needs to be applied daily until "changes" are noticed....

This is awesome. I can't wait to see some harvested pollen!

Great work, Heirloom!

I can't wait to get some pollen. STS does work great. I hope the seeds turn out to be as good as either parent. I will feel better
if I got some seeds as backups and to do an outdoor grow with.

Seeds used to be easy to buy but now its hard to get them here safely and the cost have risen sharply.

man, i didn't know seeds were such a pain to source. why not make a trip to a

legal state and purchase some or get a friend from such a state to send 'em?

 

rare dankness just opened their dispensary in denver, house of dankness, and

they keep seeds on the menu.

Thanks kc , I know a few who go to Colorado and will check this out. My wife has an Aunt in CO. so maybe she could also help.

That is really good news to me. I am within driving distance of CO. and have a sister that has been saying lets go. 

I have several empty black plastic bottles fro CO , I keep like people collect things . I collect seed packs and packs  of legal cannabis
from both CO. and WA. , I think in the future they will be valuable as the first legal cannabis sold. I won't live that long but in 50 or more years they might be a collectors item.

One like isn't hardly enough for that good news.

Very cool Heirloom!
I've learned a lot from this posting.
As for seeds, I've purchased seeds from two different vendors with
no problems..maybe a little inconvenient. Yes they are expensive though
Washington state recreation cannabus laws are very limiting
.yes you can buy weed, no you can't grow unless you purchase a permit
as a disabled/ chronic pain/ chemo etc.
Colorado made it legal for any citizen to grow. And I'm pretty sure Oregon
Laws are closer to Colorado.
Washington needs to amend how our legalization was written
I hope I see in my lifetime when the federal gov. Drops this prohibition on cannabus

Lakegal its so nice to see you here. Thanks for the info on Wa. state laws . I hope you can get a permit, out of curiosity what does a permit cost?

For those interested I found silver nitrate on amazon for only $ 13.95 for 10 gm's in a glass bottle. Silver nitrate is extremely heavy
and a .5gm used to make STS is very small. 10 gms will make more than you can ever use unless you are on a mission to Mars or sell seeds.

Silver nitrate has many use's beyond this.

I purchased a disabled permit last October from a Dr. That does this. It was $170.00
It's good for a year. When I re apply, I thinks it's closer to $100.00

This thread has been great to read
Thanks for taking the time to post this
Thanks for posting how you make your clones

An update  with a few pics mostly plants but some male flowers I pulled off with tweezers to gather more pollen. I have thought of using a fan and or a string on the plant hooked to a vibration devise to loosen pollen. They use these methods in commercial tomato greenhouses for pollination.

I will need to remove the vegative flower parts before brushing on the pollen. I hope to collect and save some pollen.  I spent only less than a minute to collect this, so if this seems labor intensive it really is not . I know commercial / pharma labs use fans to distribute pollen  , with the sex reversed
plants. They place sex reversed plants at the bottom and use vibration and a slow fan to blow up the pollen released. I don't make thousands of seeds anymore so hand pollination is my method. I tag branches pollinated so when harvested they are set aside.

I had to post some  pics of a couple of friends here , a great gift strawberry cough,  a sativa and some
golden buds. My wife went for the strawberry cough right away by smell. I opened a different pack and she sampled a few hits of that though one of our bongs  she ate a few candies also given and was out for the night. You grow as good as anyone and maybe better. 
 
To you may God bless your family and you.

I want to say the 3 plants ^^  are 42 inches tall , 24 inches wide and 42 inches long. Under a 400watt induction lamp . I used to run 2 400wt hid's in the same space.

I had to bend over the top of a few plants one now has about 10 main tops, hard to see in the pics. This is my grow

Beautiful!!

How resilient is pollen? I have read that moisture will render it uselesss.... is this true?

I assume you want it kept cool and dry to remain useful correct?

Very informative thread! You are an extremely skilled grower and your plants are beautiful.

Thanks , yea water kills off pollen so I will keep it dry especially for the pollen I collect to save for the future.

Thanks for the kind words but I think most of us here do ok at growing. Sometimes I do better than other times,
I have grown plenty of plants that I wouldn't want to show. Sometimes I get lazy and the plants suffer for it.

I save my pollen mixed with flour (plain flour, 1 part pollen, 40 parts flour) with some rice kernels inside tubes. Keeping it in the freezer will make it last up to 2 years. Dry is the keyword, cool is an addition. Dessication should be started directly when harvesting pollen, even the air could render it useless. However, a long time ago, a friend of mine kept a tube of pollen in his pocket, washed his trousers and the stuff still worked even after getting overgrown by fungus. That was a 1 in a million of course, but a single dash of pollen could in fact contain a million pollen kernels. In my own settings, I'd rather see 100.000 in a million. There are reports of French hemp being pollinated by Moroccan pollen which travelled all the way to Europe by wind. It worked the other way around as well, and the Moroccan hasj yield was poor the few years after that.

I heard about mixing flour with pollen a long time ago . I tried it and I prefer to use straight pollen. I have seen it recommended by Botonist  people who know way more than I do but still I prefer just pollen. I don't make enough seeds to worry about wasting pollen,
I have never sold seeds.

A little pollen can go a long ways. I have read reports of cannabis pollen from Africa blowing into Europe and a report that some large cities have cannabis pollen in the air from local growers.

a few pics some clones in veg and the flower room.

several clones are big enough to flower. I might need to set up a third area for clones and
run 2 flower rooms. who knows I am lazy and can only work on 1 thing at a time.

maybe 4 -5 weeks to go until harvest on 1 group of 3 plants under the 400 wt induction lamp.

the clones are under a 400 wt metal halide.
