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)
Viable
