I am wondering if there are degrees of hermi'ng. Sometimes i will find one or two seeds in a huge outdoor plant and nothing else is pollinated so i figure it selfed. I have never had a full blown hermi ruin a crop.
zem. you know how I like sativa...well this one is a nice nice one. I really like it, so we will see. I don't mind giving up the female for seeds.
So nice to see you again. How are things in your part of the world? Are you having peace, I hope? I don't think we are. Do you have covid 19 "over there"?

I'm curious about what happens with females that pollenate themselves. What will the offspring be? Herm prone? Probably. Female because of chromosomes? Sterile?"


your guess of the offspring is as good as any---imo even a geneticist would be guessing---if it were my predicament---i would stick to stable genetics

I've been busy with computer issues. I better do some research before I mess my computers up again.
Herm prone under the same conditions that the mother termed under
100% female (no y chromosome)

Good question. I have grown both and my unscientific answer is that I can not tell the difference. Have grown very potent buds from both. A favorite land race sativa that I have grown several times 4 or 5 years ago is only available as feminized beans. Have some in the mail now. Thru the years every time I checked on them, they were sold out. I tend to favor regular seeds as I enjoy a little "pollen chucking" some times.
How are you doing A.S.? I would like to know more about that favorite landrace that you mentioned. Name, breeder, specs and why is it special to you? In fact I just noticed that my favorite tasting and favorite high is still with two fem strains but I think that the potency that I achieved with regulars just seemed to be more. I have a strain that is called Ripper Haze that is my favorite, its taste and its high are just outstanding but I never seem to get the weed that gets you ripped with a couple of puffs with feminized while i grew many more fem than regulars, with the fewer times i tried regulars, i achieved that potency several times.

Herbies is NOT a reliable store. Herbies will take your money, not send anything, and guve you the runaround lies about refunds. Save yourself Money and Trouble!

I am doing fine, sir. I was talking about Dr. Grinspoon, a landrace Sativa, only available feminized, from Barneys Farm, at 26% thc. My all time favorite is Apollo 13, do not know the % of thc, only that it kicks behind. Did just get some Bruce Banner seeds that are 28%thc.

You have 4 posts and all are slamming Herbies Seeds (Herbies Head Shop). Do you have any thing else to say ? Herbies has several positive posts from other members.
