Responsible breeders start with a mother plant that they have tested and stressed to make sure that it has no hermy tendencies whatsoever. You should not just take any old plant and cause it to hermy. You need to start out with good stock to begin with. This is the reason that I am not crazy about Subcool's gear. He thinks a certain percentage of hermy plants are okay. There truly is way more to it than just throwing chemicals at your plant. QB, IMHO, autos were created for those growers too lazy/impatient to do it right--they basically watered down the genetics with ditch weed to make it easier to grow. And you're probably right about selling more seeds. Sorry, but I will continue to rail against the bastardization of cannabis--the irresponsible creation of fem seeds without the safeguards to prevent hermies--the watering down of the genetics to make it easier to grow.
