Riot Seeds Reversal Spray
Size – 8 Ounces, Small
First off, two things to note: for storage, the stock solution (bottle you receive) should be stored in a refrigerated or cool and dark area. This drastically increases the shelf life to multiple years.
Before using, shake vigorously. This has a Silver Nitrate base, so staining of the bottle is normal. It needs to be shaken very, very vigorously before use to ensure proper mixture ratio.
If you have a size Small (8 Ounce bottle) dilute the solution 1:9 water.
If you have a size Medium (16 Ounce bottle) dilute the solution 1:9 water.
If you have a size Large or XL (16 Ounce bottle) dilute the solution 1:18 water.
You want to initiate whichever plants you are preparing to spray into flower, and we spray on the first date of flower trigger.
Some plants need to be sprayed once a day until you see balls (which ON AVERAGE is 3.5-4 weeks), however each plant is different and has different hormonal needs, so sometimes as little as once a week is sufficient. For first time reversals with any cut, I always recommend the spraying once a day until you see balls starting to form.
When spraying, we are less concerned with covering every leaf, we are more concerned about spraying directly at growth nodes. Keep this in mind, makes the spray last way longer if you’re selective and target the correct areas for spraying.
We recommend keeping as much of the spray in stock solution form as you can and only mixing exactly what you need. We cannot stress enough how important refrigeration is.
It’s as simple as that. However the other things to take into account:
Once you start spraying, it drastically decreases the stretch, so make sure the plant (s) you’re reversing are an optimal height before starting the reversal.
Usually the more copies of a clone you have that can be reversed, the better. We are dealing with odds here as far as getting a proper reversal where the balls mature correctly and drop viable pollen. Some plants are MUCH MORE resistant to throwing viable pollen than others. I like to have a 1:4 ratio on pollen throwers : receivers unless it’s a massive reversal, that changes a lot.
Think about staggering the entry of pollen receivers – if the pollen isn’t being thrown by the reversed plant till 6 weeks after initiating flower, then you want to wait 2 weeks after flower trigger to initiate flowering for the pollen receivers. Some cuts need no stagger, I found this with some hemp lines, that they mature very fast and kick pollen fast.
It’s important to choose sexually stable females to reverse in order to keep hermaphroditic rates low in the progeny (this is important when making regular or feminized seeds)
