So I'm on day 36 of my blackberry autos and I've noticed these little things on the buds. Are they just calyxes or have they hermied? The more I look online, the more confused I become!

Calyx swelling up it looks like to me which means that it is a little bag of resin 🙂

@jsh1973 so that's good yeah?! 

 

Forgive me, I'm a complete newbie. I tried squeezing one with some tweezers and it was green and oozing, not like I'd expect a seed to be...

That's because there's no seed Smile

The Calyx/Tract would hold/grow the seed if the plant was pollinated, instead it's a little storage space for resin.....well that's how I understand it but I'm sure it's really a lot more technical than that LOL

It does look like a calyx to me although some growers think that every now and then a plant  will just produce a single seed out of nowhere(something to do with the moon🤷‍♂️) and that’s where one might lurk 😉 can’t remember where I heard that 😂 I think your fine brother although an auto can hermie it’s very rare👍

Ok now I'm back to being confused. Just done a bit more reading and thought I'd cut one off to check what's inside. Is that not a seed?

Yes mate that calyx is a bit too swollen to be empty. And of course now you've cracked it you have found seed.

This doenst mean the rest of the buds are seeded though, it might a one off. have a good check over the plant to make sure.

There's a few of these around on different buds, might just keep it going to see what it does.

Couple of seeds aren't gonna ruin your harvest bro, don't sweat but that early in flower could lead to lots of seeds, but still it wouldn't bother me massively. 

Just try to find what you believe to be the cause, be it temp/humidity swings, light excess, cross pollution, genetics or whatever and prevent it next run.

I reckon it's probably the temp swings, I'm up in my loft so it's been going from 14° to 32° on a few days. The seeds were unbranded ones off Gorilla seeds so it could be something to do with that. 

 

I'll keep them going and hopefully I can save something out of there.

I wouldn't like say they sold you unbranded seeds from herms but it anit unheard of. 

I've had a few guerrilla grows fully herm over the years. 

When that happens I try to salvage whatever seems to have the least amount of seeds then just wash the rest into hash after removing all seeds.
