Just how bad are hermaphrodites and their offspring?
There once was a plant selected to produce seeds on one branch. One day the plant decided to grow balls because getting F'd once just wasn't enough.
Now the plant has produced two sets of seeds, one from the selected breeding male and another set of seeds that are result of self fertilization.
Obviously the hermaphrodite gene is in both sets of seeds... my question is are these seeds worth growing?
Its my understanding the Herm gene is in ALL strains whether its active or dormant.
What do you guys think?
the hermi gene is only in the seeds if the plant was a true hermi, if it hermied due to stress or other environmental factors the seeds are not neccesarrily hermi. Fem seeds are made by using pollen from hermied plants.
guess you will have to grow them out to find out
Breeding genetics is a very very long subject to understand.
Here is a good read on it.
