Hi I have a plant that is currently at day 54 flowering, possibly a few days longer but basically Im at the tail end of week 7 going into week 8. I am growing a SINGLE plant but its pretty huge, grown LST with a ton of large colas. Trichs are basically 100% cloudy right now so I think Im about a week out. While Im pretty sure I dont have light leak issues, Ive seen nanners appearing since around week 6. This was a bagseed so some herm traits could certainly have been genetic. This is not a true herm as it has no full male flowers, just nanners. Unfortunately, its not just one or two but many nanners. Ive been diligent in picking them off but of course, some slipped past me. I can already see some small clusters of seeds on 2-3 colas but a good number dont yet appear to be showing signs of pollination but its honestly hard to tell as this is the same time hairs naturally go brown and calyx swell so its very hard to know whats been pollinated by looking until its too late. My gut tells me that with fans blowing around in my room, I could have had more pollination that Im currently aware. Here are my questions: -I am at the end of week 7. Do buds ever get past a point where they can no longer be pollinated or are they viable to be pollinated right up until the end of their lifespan? -Does the presence of seeds actually decrease potency in any way? Or is it mainly just an annoyance to pick them out? -Once a plant is beginning to form seeds of ANY volume, will the remaining bud that hasnt been pollinated continue to swell and put out trichs or will the entire plant switch into seed generation mode the minute a few buds get pollinated? In general I am trying to make the decision to cut now or let it go another week. If the plant will not swell or ripen more due to these seeds, Ill cut now to avoid further seed generation of any pollination that might have occurred in the last 1-2 weeks. If the unpollinated buds will continue to develop and ripen, I will probably just let it continue and deal with a small number of seeds as Id prefer to let the good buds mature fully.
