Questions [Solved] What to do with a hermie?

Morning all Smile I've not been able to get in my grow room much but managed it today. One of my Bruce Banners has gone to the dark side, probably due to heat stress. The other plants were finished and ready to come down so I've done that, but am left with the hermie (minus most of its bananas).

It does not have many trichomes but does have loads of new pistils growing so I'm tempted to give it a couple of weeks to see how it goes. 

Is it worth waiting or should I just take it down for edibles and start again?

Thanks for any ideas Thumbs Up

@rokendas Whe did you notice it had hermied? It may have spread its pollen around already and if you leave it to grow more, itll just grow more seeds

I only noticed this morning and all the bananas were fresh so maybe not much pollen has been released yet, but there are loads more on the way.

Do you reckon I should chop her/him now before it becomes a bigger problem then? It hurts my soul a little bit as it's a third of my grow - I've only had one in the past 20 odd years and that was with a bigger grow so I just chucked it.

Thanks mate

@rokendas personally I would chop it, but you should put a pic up so we can see how far it is from being done

@macky Good call but I've not got a VPN on this computer and my missus has got my other one so can't upload a pic. It looks like it's about to start colouring up and  is quite sticky so I think you've nudged me to chop it and crack on. I've got other plants ready to go in the flower room, so let the cycle continue Thumbs Up  

Cheers for your input

@rokendas If it's for security reasons your safe enough because the site has software that wipes all personal info from the pics when you upload them 🙂

@rokendas hi mate,

if it were me it would depend on other factors as to whether i got rid of it or not...herms can and do divide opinion alot lol

so

- how many (and how important are) other plants in the tent - they may get a bit seeded, or not...or a lot seeded! .. some herms do not pollinate others as the only male flowers appear inside the bud so u cant see em and the pollen cant escape.. this is when u only get a few seeds often.. 

- how much of a herm is it? how many flowers have nanas? late nanas on a plant is less of an issue than early herms, which will produce way more seeds..if there are nanas everywhere then i'll get rid before other stuff gets pollinated

- how much longer til plant is ready?  a week or 2 maybe i keep it, 6/7 weeks etc nope its a gonner for sure..

- if u only got a couple plants, id finish it either way so i got some bud to smoke ! - if enough to smoke / medicate aint an issue

if u have somehwere else to finish the plant that could be another option.. or put some sheeting between it and other plants 

you can also mist the plant to minimise pollen spread.. but need good airflow so not to increase risk of budrot !

never an ideal situation, but herms are not all the same level of issue as people can make out..

cant see many nanas on yours atm so id be picking em off every day as u got a couple weeks left to go maybe.. however if they start poppin out everywhere .. be prepared to end it 😉

good luck bro

 

 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

To close this thread off, I lasted 2 days before getting bored of picking nanas off and ended up cutting my hermie down.

I quick dried a bud and I've bought worse looking weed off the internet before, so hopefully it's not a complete write off.

Thanks for your input peeps Thumbs Up  

hermie bud
dead hermie

I'm looking forward to doing a grow diary soon for my next run of Bruce Banner and Alien OG bag seed so you can all tell me what I've been doing wrong for so many years Smile
