this master kush is about five weeks into flowering and i just took some clones from her and i notice that it had been seeded. i then looked all over her and i found two pollen sacks open at the very bottom of the plant . i continued to look but i found nothing else. what could have happend? she has no other sacks anywhere on her. i also have six clone that have rooted in the grow room with her. i just put them in on the day that i found that she was a hermi. What should i do? Do you think that she will continue to have balls?

Being that:

1. clones take their sex from their parent....and:
2. you had pollen released in your growing area,

You will likely have seeds form all associated plants and clones.

If she didnt herm. till after you took the cuttings then the clones will be pollenated by her andyou will have seeded bud, If she was hermie before you took the cuttings then they are hermie also.
Someone correct me if im wrong. Hope this Helps yogi

i did not add the clones into the growroom untill i took the cutting from the shem. i think that the pollen was released before i added them to the growroom. Do ya think that she will grow more saks because i cant find anymore other then the two on the bottom of the plant. she is about a foot and a half. i am just woundering if i should cut her out and smoke what i can. the clones in the pic are sweet tooth. i havisted the mother a few weeks ago

If you had pollen released in your area before you introduced the 'sweet teeth', I would emagine that the damage is done. When this grow is over it would be wise to clean and repaint your growroom, IMO. This grow will more than likely be seeded.

Damn, yeah... uhm... only two sacks huh? Well, I read once that you could have two outcomes. The lil fluke that's going on could either mean it's in the genes. Or that you got a plant that will only give you females. If you have a true female, and it does it'self... then there is no choice but for all female seeds do to no X chromosome. But on the other hand, it could really be a herme and it will carry through the young. But, you already have the pollen everywhere now. Even with only two, I've seen those men burst. There stuff flies farther than mine lol. I agree with smoking everything and then washing up the place real good before doing anything else. I didn't know you could take cutting from a flowering plant. Huh... well... you learn something new everyday. I never tried the cloning, or hydro... just plant a seed and watch it grow.

You can take a cutting at basically anytime in the plants whole life... some times/factors create more stress on the plants... and if the plant is flowering it will take longer for the cutting to root and get back into the vegging cycle.

Sorry to hear about the pollen, this kind of thread really scares me. Can you tell me how often you had been checking them? My girls are about 30 days old and a couple are preflowering in veg and I am checking them well twice a day. I read this thread and swear I am going to have nightmares tonight about waking up to find busted sacs.

i checked in on her everyday and never noticed that she had some balls on the lower branches. i think that it was because i only checked the new growth and not the lower branches.

YES, The seeds would be no good. You dont want to promote the bad genes. You know that old sayin' "The apple don't fall far from the tree"... You want agood strong female with no hermie relatives, otherwise you'll have this problem over and over..

That's the best thing to do. To let those bastards reproduce is a sin or something. Then you get poor me buyin some dope off you. " Oh, this aint too bad. Imma gonna grow some myself." And then I'm itchen my head "this is worse than the time that kooker had balls" (that really didn't happen :D .

I would have let the plant grow out and then use the buds and stuff for hash.
Being that you went ahead and cut the plant down, I would suggest that your throroghly clean the entire grow area and surrounding areas. Once you get pollen in there, it's tough to get it all out. You sure don't want this to happen again.

I have no experience to add, but this is kind of what I was thinking. Consider everything contaminated, flower it all, and start over with some seeds somewhere else. Clean and paint after harvest before moving the new grls in. Is that what you meant? I was thinking this was the only way to ensure it doesn't happen again.

Pretty much. I would clean the entire area out 2-3 times with a light bleach solution, and then a couple times with a neutral water solution. After that I suppose you would paint again, but I wouldn't deem it entirely necessary. After the 2ns or 3rd go-over, I'd bring some fans in to get rid of the moisture and smell, but not before. You don't want to blow any pollen into the rest of your house that could come back to haunt you. But when I say clean, I mean clean. Every inch of the place. :)
