Agreed..a male plant cant be forced to become female. A female plant wont "become" male...It can be made to produce pollen/pistils.....It will herm. I think thats where the we start mixing things up. A male is a male....But a herm can have its male flowers removed and continue to grow and produce bud. Thats more than likely what was told to the original poster. An unsexed plant can be forced to become a herm too. But a COMPLETELY male plant is a male plant to the end. What is interesting to me...Is that there is a way to produce REAL 100% female seeds. It takes alot of work/time/knowhow....But can be done. Thats seeds that do not carry the herm trait....And will only be female. The coveted 100% XX female.
