Collecting pollen from male plant

1.) Collect Pollen When Pollen Sacs Start to Open

When the pollen sacs from a marijuana plant start to crack and look like they’re about to open up (or if you can see one has already opened) then your pollen is ready for harvest!

6 Weeks to Harvest Seeds
Only the buds that come in contact with pollen will grow seeds. You can choose to pollinate all of your buds or just a few on the plant.
2.) Pollinate Female Plant That’s 2-3 Weeks in Flowering
It’s time to pollinate when your plant has been in the flowering stage for about 2-3 weeks.
