Questions Is this a Hermie?
Hi Guys, First time grower here. Trying to learn as much as possible through podcasts & now discovered this forum 😁.
Question with my first grow, this is week 3 of flower & i noticed today under the buds ehat I’m afraid might be pollen sacks. Can anyone confirm if I have an issue here?
much thanks 👍
Welcome to Percys mate, yea im afraid It looks very much like it. Are there many to be seen or just a few, You could pick them off and keep going though if you want. It can be annoying having to pick seeds out of weed but I think it's still better than having no weed 🙂
yes, that looks likea male flower, and it looks open too so it would have released pollen 🙁 Unlucky man, this is definitely a hermie
Thanks for the confirmation guys. so fast too! Good to see forums alive & constructive.
I didn't notice this one until today so I'll get my glasses on tomorrow & give them a thorough check over, its lights out now...
Is it a sure thing that every plant in the tent will grow seed now? Or can I remove this one (if its the only hermie)?
I guess at this point I'll continue to grow them to harvest. I should pick the sacks off as I see them? will that reduce the amount of seed produced?
So I probably fucked a whole lot of my shit up with this grow so working out what caused it is going to be difficult to pinpoint. I'm sure enough that I didn't have any light leaks, but I do have a trail cam in there taking a pic every hour for a timelapse. I wonder if the IR leds at night would disrupt the light cycle.
Looks like I'll be picking out loads of seeds, there's only a few that haven't formed sacks or seeds at this stage so I presume there's no point trying to separate them. Still super excited to grow these out, but also looking forward to a better result next grow.
Will the seeds be worthwhile growing next with any decent chance of producing females? Or should I look for better stock?
And will the tent need to be treated to remove any residual pollen or would it be degraded by then to pose no threat?
A moment of silence for our fallen.... sadly as the others have pointed out they are definitely male flowers. I would say you will find some seeds through that lot but depending how far along they are they may not have time to fully form. Really depends on how long they have been open for and how much pollen they released. It's not the end of the world though, just pick the seeds out and smoke the rest. I would definitely be searching for why they hermed, check your lights, temps, any potential light leaks etc so you don't have it happen again on the next run.
I heard from my mate that provided me with these as seedlings that hes just had 3 of 4 same plants grow balls & removed from his garden.
So can I take that as to say the genetics are most likely for the hermie trait? That makes me excited to get going again with some better genetics.
