hey everyone... nubeeee here. had 8 yummies and had them all wiped out due to a bug problem... all died but one! hooray~! three weeks later, managed to fight him/her back to life from about 20 leaves (after being trimmed) to come back 1/2 a$s.

here are a few pics, i gotta get a pro's opinion... is this a straight male or male&female?? that is, if its possible. and if it is both male/female will there be any buds to smoke?

any feedback would be appreciated - thanks!

Yup,
They are definatley herrmies!

One thing that I would like to clarify is,

If that hermie is left to flower with 100% females, will it turn them all to hermies:confused:

I've found hermies a few times but thrown them out at the first sight of little balls man:confused:

Regards

NO, it won't "turn them into hermies", but it will pollinate those females and render them full of useless seeds.

so now this "hermie" is all alone hogging 3 of the lights (flouro)


before the bugs... this thing was full and bushy all around.. had to trim it down to maybe 2 dozen leaves total.. 3 weeks later - she/he looks like a frail "olive oil", had to make a little brace and cast for her/him


crazy huh

here is another good question (i think) since we've established i have a hermie... i'm thinking about clipping all the hermies' balls off... with this help produce more bud? considering there will be more energy focused on the bud and not making of the pollen?

It not the fact that it will create more buds. It's a small attempt to keep the Buds from gettin pollentated. but in reality its a lost cause. One little tiny peice of pollen is all it takes to pollenate. It may help. but if there are other females in the grow room. Remove that hermie. If all you got is hermies and males, then I'd grow it out, jsut to get some bud outa the experience. but do not attempt to grow out those seeds. You're probability of getting more hermies is really high.

Also get those lights as close as you can. That plant is Phototropic and is not receiving nearly enough light. Move those I guess CFL's within an inch or two.

To be honest after looking at it. I wouldn't "clip" anything off. That thing is about as stressed out as they come without dying. It's a hurtin. Just keep it on a strict light schedule and do not stress it any more.

GIBBERILIC ACID, OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE SOME KIND OF FEMALE HORMONE PROMOTER (sorry for the caps (too lazy to type it again lol))

??..hey jollyG'.
GIBBERILIC ACID, is used as a technique to "reverse" the sex of females, not to promote females.
Speaking from first hand experience, you spray flowering plants with it, you'll have a mess of hermies.

And you cannot smoke buds that have had that sprayed on them. It is for the sole purpose of creating "fem'd seeds".

I've read that GIBBERILIC ACID is organic, but then so is rattlesnake venom.

This is a really old thread, but this needs to be addressed. The original poster of this was correct and it is not a dumb statement. Hermies procreate hermies. All seeds produced by a hermie plant should be discarded. While not every plant will hermie, it is in the genetics and is predisposed to going hermie. You could well have just been lucky with your 1 plant.
