    CS vs GA3

    I am using colloidal silver to make a hermie to get seeds from, using CS makes the plant poison, seeds/pollen is good to go. With CS I need to dispose of the soil, the planer, the bud, everything but the seed made from the pollen. (or save the pollen for later use)
    CS will kill your lady bugs, I found out when one of mine landed on a sprayed plant, turned black and died,,,ops.
    I have never used GA3, does it carry the same warning, "throw away all but the seeds/pollen"?
    At my local supply, they have other stuff, I did not look to hard as it was very pricey for a small pouch, and was not for making hermies, clones is what it had in mind. The GA3 (gibberellic acid) seems to have more function for us, from what little I have read about it so far.,, if its safer than CS I would like to give it a try.

    Rwise I looked into these air injectors (1/4 inch soaker hose) attached to a air compressor .well they worked good until I let them dry out a bit , I did this to all my plants veg,autos, bloom . and everyone had seeds . just a little easier than CS lol

    "I found out when one of mine landed on a sprayed plant, turned black and died" In my last CS experiment I found a lady bug that had actually turned silver.....kinda pretty! I wish now I had taken a pic.

    GA3 reasonably priced on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/i/173563676358?chn=ps According to this site it is safe to use. http://www.jlhudsonseeds.net/GibberellicAcid.htm

    This is what they sent me its all made out of 1/4 inch tube and connectors 1/4 inch soaker hose cut in 4 5 inch pieces, 3 pieces at 4.5 inches and 2 at 2 inches you will need 5 three way connectors and 1 four way ,

    insert a t connector in a 4.5 piece ,continue this until 3 4.5 pieces with the connectors facing inboard. at the end of the three pieces connect a 2 inch piece with a t fitting facing out board connect the last 2 inch piece then connect a 5 inch piece to all the t fittings facing inboard connect the four with the four way connector , thats it easy I can give you the link to buy them they were like 30 bucks or PM me with your address and I'll send you a couple to use to make seeds I have a ton made up that I'm not using or going to

      Thats an interesting setup, just place it in the bottom and add soil, then apply air, like an air pump for a fish tank? The added air in the soil causes hermies, I would have never guessed!

      Morning oldjarhead100 long time no “see”😂 I would like to know more? I have never heard of this method to get seeds. I remember you setting these up a while ago but I didn’t realize it was for seeds. Please teach us ol’wise One!

      Rodelization is not a for sure method of getting seed, you let the plant age way past harvest time to stress it into being a hermie, definitely not for me. What I am doing is making clones to make seed with, this will not take nearly as long.

    I think I will be switching to GA3 as with CS I have to dispose of everything it has touched, the soil, the pot, the weed, everything but the seed its self, GA3 sounds to me to be much safer!

      From what I have gleaned from this thread looks like you are making the right choice. The CS just looks to have far too many negative side effects. I will be using the GA3 next time. I have added it to my ebay cart.

      Yes I want my product as clean from chemicals as is possible. That and it is going to erk me to have to toss pretty though seeded buds, not that it will get big, but,,, I should have balls on the Headbanger in a few days, and the CS is outa here! (dont forget, toss that QT jar too)

        I have a question on using GA3 to produce hermies, ok I get that you spray it, and I get that it takes about 2 weeks, what I am not seeing is how strong to mix it. Can/do I mix it the same as for soaking seeds to germinate, or what????
        The headbanger clone is making balls, it was done with CS which I do not want to use again. Just to hazardous,,,
        So before my GA3 gets here how the hell do I use it? LOL
        Also I see that some use it to make bigger buds, how is it used there?

            Most I had already explored, I am still just guessing at what strength to mix it for making hermies.

          GA3 should be here Monday, I am looking forward to some experiments!

                Yes they are here, thank you! The money however was not,,,,
                Looks like these will fit nicely into a milk crate, we have some Himalaya blue diesel sprouting, soon as one has a limb long enuf to take, I will get this set up!

                  Royalties from oil, no I aint rich,,,
                  Ok I will bring in another milk crate and set this up, IF the snowryder clone survives I'll drop that in. If not I can do the Himalaya blue diesel,,, I may have to pick up an air pump,,,,

                The GA3 is here and those "complete" instructions are well,, not! Not even close, so I am still guessing as to how to use this stuff, should fun!

                oldjarhead100, would it be better for these air injectors to be in old school pots or cloth?
