    Ok so this seems even to me in my first real grow attempt to be an open and shut case. Basically I had nute lockout and had to sort my PH, flush and get me some cal mag plus but then on Friday I found two of these nanner sacks which checking one of my girls so I pulled them straight off. They were smaller than other nanners I have seen (my first attempt all hermied because I had rubbish equipment and no idea what I was doing) and not yellow, more pale green.

    So of course since then I have been watching like a hawk and not only are there no more of them either growing on the plant or in the buds I am certain there is more pistel growth. I have heard once you find one nanner they will be more sure to follow fast but two days and nothing. I can't separate the plant but it puts the other two at risk of course. This brings me to my second point. I have seen some solution called Optic Foliar Switch which apparently kills off any male hormones so not only stops hermies but can revert them back to full female. Since I am only in week four of flower and have caught this so early I do feel this stuff could sort out my issue but I would like to know anyone who has used it with or without success. I believe it is similar to a product that used to be called Reverse by Dutch Passion or something.

    So is it possible like I have read that you can just find a couple of nanners of ball sacks, remove them and have a completely healthy female plant come harvest and also has anyone used the product?
    Thanks in advance guys.

    No i have never used that solution. Get yourself some good genetics that won't hermi. And wash your room if pollen is present. A hermi will make more hermi's. nobody needs that.

    Yeah the **** one that hermied as soon as she was put into flower was one of these free limited edition strains that some vendors give with orders which I have now realised they give away like that so we test out the genetics for them and the other ones I have are all from well known seed banks like RQS and Humboldt. Luckily I didn't get anywhere near the pollen stage as I check them a few times a day properly and saw the hermie as soon as it started to show. I was looking forward to that one as well since it was Strawberry Eclair and sounded nice but oh well it happens. One thing I did notice which I found strange was a few days before it turned on me the smell of the stalks when I would touch them was really off somehow. Maybe it's just that us fellas are stinky and he brought his stink with him. :)
