Good question,and sorry I cant answer it corretly but I asume they might not be your best choice if only growing that ...i would pop a few along with another sure seeds and wait and see.
feel free to move this question to a better spot but its been hard pinning down a definitive answer on this one...
Short version: Can i safely use seeds from a girl plant who went hermie because of super stressful growing conditions?
Long detailed version:
I recently had a friend want to get into growing but he wanted to do this total "zero maintenance" grow, and on top of that, he's super anal and paranoid so for the sake of stealth he wanted to have zero paper trail (meaning no coming online and searching shit, no having the grow bible at his house--he basically only wanted the plants there...wtf, right?)
So, before knowing all of the stipulations, i agreed to help him--(he asked for a mentor...yes, i should have run at every point but, anyway)--with a basic rundown of a simple way to grow in the corner of his room.
After we finished a fucking ghetto rigged box (plywood and 1x3s) stapled up some mylarish emergency camping blankets and sort of free mounted a booster fan and was set up with a 6 bulb cfl setup---u know the drill: plugin sockets with y adapters plugged in and taped to a power strip. i told him to go hempy and gave him a box of 3:1 perlite: vermiculite blend and the last bits of tiger bloom and grow.
I gave him a headband seed and he popped some bag seed and guess what popped? so he's got one girl and mutilates the fuck out of her about 3 weeks in trying to get clones off of her--he insisted "we" try so he could do a bunch of little plants--needless to say the poor gall wasn't ready to give any clones and the effect was essentially to rob her of all but a set past her cotyledons and top her. But, she fought through and was eventually able to go into an extremely stressful flowering period wherein she was overly humid and overly dry at times, experienced extremes of heat at times, and was definitely not in absolute dark at any point during her flowering.
As a result she of course thought the world was exploding and spent the majority of her life producing what look like some extremely viable seeds.
I've been 'gifted' some of this terrible, overly dried, fluffy herb and it is riddled with at least 75 seeds but I'm concerned that if they were produced under such horribly stressful conditions, the genetic material may be compromised...if that's the case should i not use these? if its not, don't i have a pretty high chance of females and thus a shit-ton of headband quasi-femm'd seeds?
maybe someone will check this out and let us all know what the real scoop is on this whole thing
All my Headband plants hermi. I think throwing a few nanners in the bud is genetic.
Have a great one. Advice is for folks with a legal grow and worth what you paid for it.
seeds produced/parts of plant going hermie?
like, if i didn't stress the girls i get from these seeds at all, do will only a little part hermie and polinate only a little of the plant so only that little pollinated part produces seeds? if so, which sounds somewhat logical right now, these seeds are probably worth growing, right?
The reason I said what I did was me beeing rational,as it is alot of breeders half ass there strain and sell it for gold,tho your not guaranteed shit..now your budy not so lucky got a bunch of seeds from a lady who thought was the end of the world...if you ask me its the saame ass if mom smoked crack...jmt
It is certainly right Excuse for that I interfere … At me a similar situation. I invite to discussion. Write here or in PM.
^^ not sure i can understand ya bro, sorry
seeds she put out before?
seeds are bunk because they came from a super stressed girl?
