Suggestion Disater Strikes....

Hey guys.  Mr Tweed here back again.  I've posted a couple of issues I've had with my plants over the last few weeks which has been very helpful.  My plants looked great up u till I flipped and ever since then it's all gone tits up.  Had what I thought is probably a cal mag / iron issue that seems to also have been amplified by light bleaching from my lights.   Last night to top it all off what should I find but fucking Hermies!!!  Nooooo.  

 

I'm 3 weeks into flower with 8 dutch passion passion fruit feminized.  I noticed whilst checking plants last night some white dust on some leaves and then realised I had balls everywhere on 2 whole plants mixed in with the newly forming budlets.  Lots of pollen dropped out already.  I tried to wipe up the pollen with a wet towel and then realised it was widespread so had to  ut the two plants out of the scrog which wasnt easy and I'm sure some pollen poofed out into the room. 

I should have listened to your guys hermie show on HOHG which I did this morn and I would have turned off the fans and sprayed down first but cut those things out of there super quick.

 

whilst I tried to be careful I'm sure some pollen must have got out.  My question is should I just cut the fucking lot down and start again?  Are the other plants destined to just be full of seed.  I'm 11 weeks into the grow now and would anticipate another 6 of flowering till harvest?   The remaining plants are mostly looking a bit sorry for them selves anyway bar a couple but they are really starting to bud.  I just dont want waste another 6 weeks of electric just to get a load of seeds.  

I've taken a clone of each of the 8 plants in veg.  Needless to say the two that hermie are going in the bin.  Although I'm sure its not the breeders fault.  The plants look stressed and I think the red light on my heater could also have been a factor?

Thanks mate.  It really sucks being my first I door grow.  I've invested quite a bug of time and money into it all so it's pretty gutting.

Cull the lot or Persue?

Perhaps some pictures for some assessment by those with more experience than me. My initial response is that it sounds a bit grim 😐 Hopefully someone can give some measured advice.

hi mate

If you continue you will have seeded bud but they’ll be be bud too ! 
The strength may be comprised by a few % as some plant energy has gone into seed production instead of bud but you’ll have smokable weed that’ll be better than nothing.. it’s just a little annoying having to separate seed out before consuming. 
hash making also an alternative 

Also when are your clones or next vegged plants ready to go into your flower tent? If any longer than 6 weeks it may be worth continuing?

it’s really a personal choice I think

if you see it as wasting electric and time then sure you could start over 

If they are bad hermies I’d get rid of those I think 

another option get rid of the worst keep the best ? 

Pics may help 

hope this helps a little mate 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

I'm sad for you man, but as Chillbert said you'll still have weed man is better than having to wait 12 more weeks... finishing your first grow is very satisfying and you learn a lot from it, 

if it was my crop I'll keep going ,sex my clones, get rid of the hermie, keep going the veg for 6 weeks until you chop down the flowering room, harvest keep some seeds ,fresh freeze all the bud clean everything like a sociopath veg included, get some dry ice and bubble H bag and shake it all ! You'll get high 2 weeks quicker than if you were waiting for a normal  run to dry 😉 win win! 

Stay high!

Thanks guys.  I've certainly learnt a lot.  I definately need to be Inspecting very thoroughly next time after the flip.   The two hermits have been binned.  there really was a lot of Male flowers on there.  thankfully most hadn't opened.

I think you guys are right.  I don't have my clones ready to put in the tent yet anyhow so I will persue and probably make bubble hash as recommended.  Good plan.  It'll also give me a better idea of which clones I want to keep and use again.  I already know I ought to Get rid of the two that came from the two hermie parents.   

Do you think it's the heat burn that triggered them?  There is also a red light on the heater I should have perhaps  covered.  I remember my brother in law saying when he grew he always had problems.with pla it's getting started out after he flipped to 12 12.

No I don’t think it’s heat burn.. this doesn’t cause hermaphroditism...

Light leaks do though so I’d consider this first and maybe you wanna cover up those indicator lights 

Unstable genetics also cause hermaphroditism as can severe stress such as changing light cycles back and forth (re-vegging for instance) 

I’d also consider other genetics if your bro always had trouble with them ! 

good luck with em

I'm not sure what genetics he was using but I know he had problems with stress.  not necessarily hermies.  My seeds are direct from dutch passion who are reputable so think it maybe down to me.  probably indicator lights like you say but then it's never happened to me growing outdoors and they are definately not in pitch black in that environment.  I'll keep clones from the ones with no Hermie flowers.
