We came up with the idea that the silver might eradicate the fungus, as it does on humans and animals. So why not give it a try?
And yet, because of resistance from the giant chemical conglomerates which supply the potentially toxic synthetic chemicals used in farming, the use of antimicrobial silver to stop plant blight and associated fungal infections has still never been implemented on a wide scale basis in farming.
After five months, the roots of the plants were observed and the dry weight was measured after drying it in the drying machine at 80 degrees.
What’s more, for the first time in over 10 years of gardening, her garden was still producing crops all of the way through to early November, well after the first frost!
A growing body of research is clearly demonstrating the fact that silver has its place in crop disease management, and should be used in place of the potentially toxic chemicals presently being used, and that are losing their effectiveness against pathogens.
What’s more, the nanosilver-treated green onion plants, once harvested, were demonstrated to have grown larger and to weigh more than the non-treated green onion plants.
As house plant enthusiast Lisa B. recently wrote on the Colloidal Silver Secrets Community on Facebook:
I won’t even mention the pot growers who use colloidal silver to produce more potent pot buds.”
In other words, the plants themselves apparently reduce absorption of the silver when high levels are used on them to control the plant blight.
Have you ever wondered about using colloidal silver in your garden, to control plant fungus…
Feminized seeds are super efficient for indoor and outdoor gardeners. Area, time, and resources aren’t being given to plants that will be thrown away two weeks after the 12-12 flip. Similarly, outdoors where a large plant can consume a lot of time and resources in upkeep prior to the autumn show of flowers, feminized plants are also a good way to reduce guerrilla crop pollinating. There’s nothing worse than bush-bashing out to a well-hidden crop only to find a rogue male or two have impregnated every female plant.
The general practice behind feminization is that female plants are forced to produce pollen, which is in turn used to pollinate other female plants. The outcome? Resulting seeds will be feminized, with no risk of further pollination.
With a bit of aforethought, it is possible to set up an efficient feminization breeding programme—and have female seeds from your favourite phenos on hand all the time. You never know, you might discover the next big thing!
The easiest and relatively inexpensive way—considering how much money is potentially saved by not growing resource and time-consuming males—is to buy a colloidal silver generator, which is the no-fuss plug and play option. Or, make your own, which is quite straightforward and doesn’t require any special skill.
Sinsemilla is an unnatural state for cannabis. Without human intervention, it would be rare to find an unpollinated female in the wild—unless it was sterile. When sinsemilla plants are left to go beyond their desirable maturation stage by a number of weeks, the plant, through whatever amazing processes evolution has bestowed, knows it has not been pollinated. As a last ditch effort at propagation, it will produce male pollen sacs in an effort to self-pollinate.
The only bummer, unless you grow from clones, is that cannabis is wired to produce about 50% male seeds and 50% females. It is just the nature of the beast.
There are a number of harvesting methods employed to catch pollen.
Plants can be induced to grow male sex organs as late as four weeks into flowering. Though spraying one week prior to the light changeover is recommended for clones. If a plant grown from seed is being used, wait until the plant has sexed before spraying so you can be sure it is female.
Just as with standard male to female crossings (which is a heterozygous process), a number of plants will need to be grown and the best selected for mother plants and future breeding. With enough room, hundreds if not thousands of new plants can be grown in order to select the best of the best phenotypes.
Feminized cannabis seeds only produce female plants, which has a number of advantages. Find out how to do it with Royal Queen Seeds.
