Not sure if this is where I sould be posting this but I did.

20191204 165537

Reached out to Crop King to see if they had any ideas on why this auto Lambs Breath hermi'd and what I can do to prevent it in the future (thought it might be strain specific stress).

Before I even got a chance to describe grow conditions they asked if I had males in the tent.  I told them I had reg seeds in there but they all turned out to be female.  They instantly said the male plants in your tent caused the female to hermi.  

I have NEVER heard of this before.  

Is this true or even a possibility?

Whoa..... this is massive question. I would ask him, under what grounds he thinks that. Maybe he has some research to back it up.... but im skeptical

But you didnt have males in your tent...maybe the gene for sex is unstable in that strain and any whiff of a male can upset the balance

So am I!  I tried to explain it was a pollen sac on a female, not I found seeds in my female plant but they (Emily at Crop King) continued to say it was caused by males and rushed me off the phone before diving deeper into anything to do with my grow.

@zn

Wouldn't think Crop King would have unstable genetics but it is a land race strain.  The girl I talked to just added more confusion it, your explanation makes sense.  But them not even asking about conditions is what sent me down a rabbit hole, blaming a female that come from a reg seed instead.

A lot of seedbanks do not like to discuss grows...it takes on a whole new level of legalities

Sometimes man, no matter how god the breeder, genetics will be faulty. It happens, I got a hermie once from Dutch Passion. But i've grown fuck loads of their strains and still do, I trust them still. It happens man, rarely buy it does. 

If it happens again, then it needs to be known lol

Yep, I agree with everyone. I replied on the ol' Twatter there too. Just some unstable genetics/stress situation I think. Who knows what exactly caused it but, it definitely does happen on occasion. And I always take the breeder's advice with a grain of salt (size of the grain depends on the breeder... lol). There really isn't a ton of Quality Control that happens (it really can't due to the current nature of the 'industry', at least not yet), and  so there are no industry-wide standards to adhere to, so the breeders are left to do their own testing. It's obviously in their best interest to not sell shitty products, and most of the well-known names are pretty reliable, it seems. The ones that aren't are quickly weeded out, due to the nature of the black market. Their product is their reputation so... But for CK to dismiss you and suggest it's just a male you left in your tent..? That's kinda of insulting for me... do they not think you know what a male plant looks like? And wouldn't have removed it when you did see male flowers?

I do agree with ZN tho in that they may not want to discuss that... most if not all seed companies say specifically not to germinate them so.. LoL.

@macky

I absolutely agree but the misinformation given to me by crop king is unacceptable.  If I didn't have a bit of knowledge and a site like this and Twitter to lean on I would have believed them (they're professional breeders, I'm not).  Even worse I probably would have spread the misinformation they gave me.

Now its probably a case of 1 misinformed employee new at the job so I wont black ball company.  In the past I have had great results with their product, but in the future I will keep a closer on it.  Still have the 1 bean left so fingers crossed it was just a 1 off.
