anyone think about XX XY chromosomes.. if you have a female plant its entirley XX female... it then creates and female/male pollen sack still using that XX chromosome so when you pollinate a flower that was not bread from feminzed seed but naturally then your almost completley going to get female from those seeds because there is no male chromosome. but if your pollinate a hermie with its own pollen then you take that gene and imbreed it and mutate it to act like an XY then you get something like XX/Y and thus imbedding that hermaphrodite gene,,.
XX/XY is oversimplified in regards to plant like cannabis when herms are on the table..

I had 3 plants herm in my last grow. both of my Strawberry D's, They started throwing nanners mid flower. I pinched what I could then finally said fuck it and let them go.
I let them finish to about 50% amber and the leaves were all yellowing. I havent had one seed in any of them, not even undeveloped seeds...
So if you get some hermies do the best you can, you might get seeds you might not... You'll get a lesson in the end though, another grow under your belt.
