I wish I had your positive outlook, @novitius. However, these are clones of a plant that went 10 weeks last grow.

@umbra - one of the reasons pistils change color is pollination if I am not mistaken which is why I am concerned. I carefully (or so I thought) pollinated one branch on each plant. I let the plants sit outside my tent (and had them out of the tent when I paint brushed on the pollen) for about a half hour and made sure the pollinate flowers were out of the direct air flow of my fan. My last grow in the tent, I pollinated all 3 plants I had in the tent. I didn’t really clean the tent thoroughly after that grow but I was under the impression pollen has a short lifespan. I am 6 months removed from that nonsense. Also the other plants (Mendo Cookie) are not showing any brown pistils.

Well I'd be sorry to hear that you had residual pollen floating around. That's certainly risky business.
I mentioned fast flowering partly out of optimism and partly because some people have said that plants finish faster under LED. It was an ofc convo. You added more light, right?
Either way, I hope you still achieve the quality you want!

If you sprayed tent with water it will make any stray pollen ineffective
Yep. In hindsight I probably should have gone that way.

I did add another light so that could be it.

The thing about stray pollen though is that the Mendo Cookie plants have nice white pistils so I am thinking that maybe the Mimosa plants are reacting to the pollen I put on the one branch of each so they are behaving as if they have been entirely pollinated. The Mimosa plants also are throwing up new white pistils as well. I’m going to keep an eye on them for signs of ‘balls’. Most people live and learn. I live, learn and forget...

More seeds? Mimosa and what? Maybe you have found a wonderful strain.
I used some pollen that I stored in the fridge with desiccant packs from the male Mimosa plants I had in the summer. I hope it works. The Fogey household really enjoys the smoke. I hope I can keep cloning the female I have but I’d like to have backup.

5 weeks today...
Top Mendo Cookie, bottom Mimosa. Extra light and lights are about 12” above canopy, also I have removed some leaves to allow better light penetration and I removed a bunch of the lower, weak branches during veg. Of the hundreds of parameters, I have changed a bunch so what is working, I am not sure of. I am happy with the bud development lower down the stems as compared with previous grows. I used an app to try to counteract the blurple lights...

Getting yellow pistils on my Mimosa. They don’t look like nanners but I am keeping my eye on them. Probably payback for me being kind of a jerk. I have something going on neurologically and I am not myself lately. My bullish!t detector has a hare trigger and I need to learn to just ignore what I perceive as bull and move on...
Pics from tonight...

Did you ever get a handle on your vertigo of?
No. It isn’t really vertigo but similar. Neuropathy affecting extremities(and my memory and recently personality too). Neurologist referred me to a cardiologist who specializes in autonomic nervous system issues. Specialists have about a 3 month wait to get in to see them. Next month...

It's so beautiful watching them grow. Fingers crossed you just have funky pistils and nothing comes of it!
Yes it is. If they are hermi-ing, it is weird that it is just the Mimosa’s. Last grow one of my Mendo Cookies hermied(so I know what the nanners look like for sure). The other did not. These Mimosa’s are clones of the last grow’s plant and that one did not hermie. Wicked pissah...
