    Volcano, that plant does not appear to be a hermy, but appears to be a full blown male. I see absolutely no sign of female pistils. But that can happen, too. I have gotten seeds that were supposed to be femmed, but ended up being totally male.

    Those are just swollen calyxes. They're not pollen sacs. There's a big difference. And calyx do have a little seed looking thing in the middle.

    Those are not swollen calyxes. Those are male flowers. I have 4 male plants in my backyard right now that explode pollen every time one of those opens. Volcanobuds would be best off removing that male now unless he wants seedy weed...

    I immediately sprayed down my crop with water & removed the males. The remaining females are near harvest & appear to be seed-free. Thanks for you input!

    The others are near harvest? Did this male plant go in way later than the other plants?

    No. They all started as feminized seeds that were germinated and grown together in a 3 x 4 tent, but the moment I noticed the sacs in early flower, I immediately sprayed the entire tent and crops with water/mist, wiped the tent & RDWC down clean and removed the males....about 6 weeks ago. The remaining females look great, about a week to 10 days from harvest and I see no evidence of seeds.

    BTW, so you know, Cannabis pollen can travel up to 40 miles to pollinate other cannabis.

    You should always get 100% germination rates from seeds ordered from reliable seed banks by ESTABLISHED breeders.
    I'm seeing all these new growers and strains out there and I belong to a lot of weed pages and I am seeing more and more posts every day about all these inferior breeds and breeders.
    If the breeder hasn't been around at least half as long as I have I would never buy their seeds and I only trust a couple seed banks one of which I will be through with as soon as I figure out which bank sent me seeds other than what I ordered.
    When you order the same seeds from the same breeder but from different sources, one in Canada and one in the U.K., and they are as opposite as can be, someone screwed me over and I'm pretty sure who it was.

    Recently I have gotten seed from www.seedsman.com and seem very reliable to strain, and they come in the breeders pre-package make up so you know which seeds are definitely which. What IS interesting is that the packages came from within the United States. Last 3 times was from Oklahoma, and before that it was California.
