at you germinate 5 followed by another 5 the next
week. If you are a long time grower with a good amount of growing
experience then you can germinate all 10 in one go. Again you do not
have to do it this way. It just helps reduce the risk of failing all the
seeds because of bad germination methods.
During your plants growth you may decide that you want to
pollinate ONLY ONE of your females. This means that you need to
have two grow areas. One for growing all your female plants and
another for growing a single or more females mixed in with some
males. As we said before this depends on how much grow space you
have and how much money you want to spend. It is important that
your pollination room is kept well away from your female grow room.
Pollen can travel by air and it is advised that the two areas are kept
well apart. Also bees and other insects can spread pollen. Not only that
but you can too. Always wash your hands and face after handling a
male plant. This saves problems of pollen from a male plant getting
onto a female that you wish to keep for sinsemilla.
Figure 3.2 - Pollen from the male plant can be collected by shaking it
over a clean surface such as a sheet of glass. The pollen can then be
swept up by using a credit card. If you gather it in a piece of paper
like this then you can........
Figure 3.3 - .....Store male pollen in a test tube like this. If
kept out of the light pollen can keep for a long time. You can use this
pollen to make seeds from a female plant by sprinkling some of the
pollen onto the female flowers. Photography film canisters also make
great pollen storage units. Both picture by Slowhand.
Figure 3.4 - This is a great picture of an indoor grow room by GIYO.
The light hanging down over the plants is a HPS light. It gives off an
orange glow to the grow room.
So being logical we can see that we have paid a bit of money
for 10 seeds and that we want to get 100% germination results. The
following passages will tell you how to achieve that success rate.
WAYS TO GERMINATE YOUR SEEDS
Seeds can be germinated in a number of ways. Some ways
guarantee more success than others. It is recommended that you
consider the 'rockwool SBS propagation tray' method.
Figure 3.5 - Germination picture by BushyOlderGrower.
Seed soil propagation:
This is a method whereby the seeds are placed down in moist
soil about 3mm or the length of the seed from the surface. The soil is
kept moist (Not soaking wet) by sprinkling water over it once a day.
This has a moderate success rate. Out of 10 seeds only 7 - 8 may
Seed towel propagation:
Figure 3.6 - This is an example of some seeds that have germinated.
This method is the towel germination method. Picture by Kryptonite.
This is a method whereby the seeds are placed either on a
damp towel or on a damp piece of cotton wool. Cheesecloth may also
be used. The seed is then covered with more damp wool or a damp
towel. The tow

which there is no change in the gene pool. This means that
there can be no evolution.
For a test example let us consider a population whose gene
pool contains the alleles B and b. Assign the letter c to the frequency
of the dominant allele B and the letter d to the frequency of the
recessive allele b.
[In most cases you will find that c and d are actually notated
as p and q by convention in science, but for this example we will use c
The sum of all the alleles must equal 100%.
So c + d = 1.
All the random possible combinations of the members of a
population would equal (c x c) + 2cd + (d x d). Which can also be
(c+d) X (c+d)
We will explain this in detail in moment, but it is best to know it for
The frequencies of B and b will remain unchanged generation after
1. The population is large enough.
2. There are no mutations.
3. There are no preferences. For example a BB male does not prefer a
bb female by its nature.
4. No other outside population exchanges genes with this model.
5. Natural selection must not favor any specific individual.
Let us imagine a pool of genes. 12 are B and 18 are b. Now
remember The sum of all the alleles must equal 100%. So this means
that the total in this case is 12 + 18 = 30. So 30 is 100%.
If we want to find the frequencies of B and b and the
genotypic frequencies of B, Bb and b then we will have to apply the
standard formula that we have just been shown.
f (B) = 12/30 = 0.4 = 40%
f (b) = 18/30 = 0.6 = 60%
Both add to make 100%. Now we know their ratios.
c + d = 0.4 + 0.6 = 1
We have proven that c + d must equal 1.
Very straightforward, yes.
Remember that all the random possible combinations of the members
of a population would equal (c x c) + 2cd + (d x d), or (c+d) X (c+d)
Then, c + d = 0.4 + 0.6 = 1
And (c x c) + 2cd + (d x d)
= BB + Bb + bb
= .24 + .48 + .30 = 1
This means that the population can increase in size, but the
frequencies of B and b will stay the same.
Now, suppose we break the 4th law about not introducing another
population into this one.
Let us say that we add 4 more b.
b + b + b + b enter the pool. This brings our total up to 34 instead of
30. What will the gene and genotypic frequencies be?
f (B) = 12/34 = .35 = 35 %
f (b) = 22/34 = .65 = 65%
f (BB) = .12, f (Bb) = .23 and f (bb) = .42
Oppss, .42 does not equal 1. This means that the Equilibrium law fails
if the 4th law is not met. When the new genes entered the pool it
resulted in a change of the population’s gene frequencies. However if
no other populations where introduced then the frequency of .42 would
be maintained generation after generation.
However we would like to point out that we used a very small
pool in the above example. If the pool were much larger then the
number of changes, even if one or two new genes jumped in, would be
insignificant. You could calculate it, but the change would be on an
extremely low leve
