My guess would be that seeds weren't still a little premature. That is total guess though.
My recent harvest, one plant is thoroughly seeded and while harvesting the seeds I noticed they all have this black coating on them that flakes off. I've never noticed it on any seeds before. It kind of looks like black mildew, there is no mold in the buds at all though and for being SUPER seeded the shit is potent as hell (NYCD). Matter of fact I don't notice a difference in potency from the un pollinated plant vs the pollinated...
You prolly have feminised wicked dzel ultra-medicinal voodoo protecta coated seeds.
recently that canadian seed co, next generation seeds - ran two, one grapefruit diesel (tbl) that hermied 'some' may have been more crystally/medi than the other genotype that didn't hermie plus it purp'ed up. true breeding strain/lines here mostly, but won't pass up a stable fem. cut.
got the same on a batch of seeds too, not on another. different cultivars tho. And yes the black/striped (the substance can be easily scraped off) beans are rock-hard so I would be inclined to think they are mature. also having issues germing that run even (0:25) after 30 day dry +10 day ~34F. we're talkin with rapid rooters, paper tower, heat mat, everything but scarification and H2O2. Thoughts? Haven't tested the other beans yet.
stump- you tried popping any yet?
Better living through chemistry memes.
potency isn't affected by seeding it's yield only. seedy buds aren't prefered cuz you're paying for something you arent' smoking. I dont' know the technical name for it but I've seen it and used seeds that had it, nothing to report-they were just like any other seed aside from the weird black stuff. Did you pop them out after a dry and cure or not?
I had a few seeds with bright pink stripes on them that came out of some bright pink lower buds that hermied on me. They were extremely cool looking but I couldn't get my camera to focus on them well enough to get a pic...
