MJ Pollen questions.
    #7293243 - 08/14/07 09:23 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I have a couple of male plants that I wish to collect pollen from for breeding.

1: what's the best method for collection?

2: how long does it remain viable?

3: what is the best method of storage?

4: what is the best method of application to the females and at what time?

Thanks in advance for any help.

the best way to collect pollen is to (assuming the plants are in pots) lay paper underneath the pots. Then wait until the first few pollen sacks start to break open, then put paper bags over them and paper bags over the flowers that haven't quite busted open. Seal the bags with twist-ties. Givethem a few days and then take them off.

I can't answer viability, but I think it remains viable for quite a while.

Best method for storage is in a cool dry dark place or in a refridgerator.

The best time to apply them to female flowers is during early flowering, put the bags over the flowering heads but dont tie them off, or simply just shake the bags around your grow room or growing environment, or put the collen into some small rags of pantyhose and hang them from some branches on the plants.

that's how i did it and i never had any problems, the pollen is an infectious bitch anyway by nature, so when applying them to plants it doesn't really take much care, unless you really want to only apply the pollen to one branch.


If this is the case, just put the paper bags over the bottom branches of your plant(s) and tie them off loosely.

but careful if you put it in a grow room then there is a small chance of seeding your whole grow room, so if its in a grow room, apply them to the bottom branches

I only want to seed selected branches so I was thinking more along the lines of applying it with a cotton bud (Qtip) if that is possible. I don't want to seed the entire plants.

mm you could try that but you would probbaly have better luck with tying on paper bags to the selected branches and then leaving them for about half a day, then GENTLY remove the bags and let them to pollenate.


a qtip may well work but a bag would be quicker

collect in bags, apply with q-tip. easier to pollinate a specific branch, less possible chance of spilling spores everywhere.

pollen will stick to the walls, your clothes etc. you will have no choice of this they are like spores. and they can reappear at random so beware.

good luck.

storage? airtight in the cold, film canister in the fridge works.

Thanks for your help, that's what I wanted to hear. I have four different female strains and two different male strains so I want to avoid unnecessary cross pollination at all cost and only pollinate to get the crosses and pure strains that I desire.

The males are outdoors at the moment so there's no danger of pollination until I apply the pollen to the females, I plan to do that one by one outside of my grow room to avoid any cross pollination that is unplanned.

bag method works very well.

You can also cut the male flower top off just before they begin to open and place it in a cup of water on top of a mirror or pan of glass. The pollen will fall just a couple inches to the table where you can scrap it up. works realy well.

I tend to bend a branch over, place a paper bag over the branch, and
wrap a wire tie about the end, holding the bag in place.

Then just let the pollen drop into the bag.

Once you have enough, just transfer to an air tight/ light proof container, and store in the fridge.

Pollinating is best done with a fine paint brush, or cotton bud (q tip) and best painted onto fresh, white hairs, midway to near the top of the buds.

when using the bag method, be careful using plastic bags.

Ive had moisture build up inside the bag from the leaves and stems of the male plant which completely kills the pollen.

pollen and water dont mix at all.

Yep, thats why i always use paper bags, as they breath, but
still hold the pollen well.
