So here is a little back story on this plant. Got off to a rough start due to me using too hot of a soil mix to start her off with. After being severely stunted for a week and a half, I transplanted, her and she took off. Being grown in a five gallon pot. I went to water her one day, after she had been flowering for about 2 good weeks and some kind of pest had eaten the inside of the stem....about 10 inches from the top of the plant. I thought for sure the plant was going to die. I tied the stem to a straight stick and hoped for the best. Well, it never died and kept on flowering. But it has been looking weird the last week and it looks like it is turning hermie. The buds aren't producing resin and are starting to produce seed. I took a sample off it and cut some calyxes in half to confirm....since this is my first experience with an autoflower.
So I need some advice. Should I let the plant go and see if the seed develops.? In my preliminary research, I guess these seeds would have a 50% chance of also being hermies, and more than likely earlier on in the plants life.
Or, should I chop it now and salvage what I can....maybe do some cooking with it. It's about 10% amber trichomes. I have 2 other ones that are ready. One small one, and one that just loved my nutrients and has really nice buds for an auto grown outdoors.
So that is my predicament, since this is my first hermie experience.
Here she/he is:
Completely forgot to mention these were Paradise Pandora feminized. The hermie is one of the most awesome smelling things, and so sticky. The resin sticks to your fingers like tree sap.
I had same problem with a photo plant... The hermie was the one that was stickiest and dankiest.... I wonder why the hermie seemed to be the phenomena of choice, only to fool me :/
