How do you create your own type of weed

Keraseeds has decades of experience within the cannabis industry in several areas. In this article we will explain how you can make your own variation / strain. This is not a difficult process, but it is very instructive.

You start just like with everything mother nature creates with 2 parents. Normally you cannot choose them, but in this case you can, and this is perhaps also the most difficult task! The task lies with the “father” plant since it does not get buds. In this case it is a matter of trying and harvesting several times to find out what your desired result is.

Made a choice?

Have you made your choice which will be your father plant? Then you isolate it. The best method is to place the plant in a room with little to no ventilation. After flowering you have to catch the pollen from your father plant. You can do this by holding a few sheets of paper underneath and tapping it loose. You can also cut a few flowering branches and put them in a pot of sugar solution. This way you can keep your father plant in good condition if you put it back in growth with 24 hours of light on it. In this case you take the pollen from the cut branches.

Make the seed fertile
Keep your pollen in a glass jar or a test tube, our preference is always for a test tube. Mix the pollen with a carrier. This is a powder that thins and holds the pollen. You can also heat it in the microwave to sterilize it. Mix a teaspoon of drift mail with four teaspoons of sterile flour. Now the mixture is ready to fertilize the female plants.

 

To save?

You can keep it in the fridge for months!

Fertilize the mother plant

The best way to fertilize the plant is approximately after two weeks when the buds are formed. From this moment it takes about 6 weeks for the seeds to develop. When they have a nice dark color, the seeds are well developed. Let the top dry well, when it is dry, the seeds are also dry. It is best to keep the seeds in the fridge!
