    I just got rid of my male plants that were sitting outside for numerous reasons I decided it would definitely be the smartest thing to do.

    But before I got rid of them I clipped a big pollen sac off the top and hung it upside down outside


    Basically I didn't mean to have to post a new thread but if someone could link me to some information on how to get my pollen sacs to open so i can pollinate my females would be GREATLY appreciated :Rasta:

    Leave them on a living plant until they are mature enough to open and THEN cut them off?

    oh my bad..well I had to put them outside right when i put them into flowering cuz they were male and outside isn't a safe place not that I care about them getting stolen but I run too much of a risk of keeping them out there in the open somewhat so I gave them to someone to make some butter or somethin but no big deal i didn't know it just kinda sucks cuz they were the best bagseed i've had and i wanted to carry it on again but no worries thanks for your help

    You could always dry out the sacks you cut off and then cut them open. Either the pollen is viable or it isn't.

    Paper bag it!

    You might get lucky and put the clipping in a paper bag. After drying, the pollen, if any, might be collected from bottom of bag. You can pollinate at any time, hope it works. good luck.

    It will pop open on it's own. You will see pollen everywhere. sacs of pollen ripen and will get fat prior to opening.
