    So this is what those famous "nanners" look like.....This is actually my first encounter with them in around 9 years of growing. Hopefully I won't be seeing much more of this...

    your "nanner" looks like a banana, hence the term "nanner"

    I always say it is a yellow tongue sticking out at you.

    Juicy Fruit....I didn't have any nanners on the flowers from seed, but these flowers came from a clone....I'm guessing the cloning process might have stressed her a bit..

    Nope, I hacked her as soon as I saw the nanners. They were late in their onset, I think they popped up around week 7 or 8.

    Yikes man!!! From what I've heard, there is not much you can do. Either cut them and have 5 week premature herb, or let them do their thing and have herb full of seeds, and a room full of hermie pollen to clean up!! If this happened to me at week 4, I would hack them. Then go buy a really big bottle of Jameson to sulk in my sorrows...Then plant a different strain.

    AWE i am pulling them out of main populous, and wont lie crying a little. Now will try dutch master reverse but I am not hopeful. Heard that pulling them off helps as well. I am sooooooooo broken over this BS....

    do not use second hand equipment, I got infected by reusing a vortex fan (thats the only reason I see how this happened)

    many things can cause it from what I understand, like stress to the plant, light leaks, taking of to many leaves etc... B4 you go off cutting everything prematurely... You are in 8th week from scratch or flowering? cause if you are close to harvest you might be fine... read up on it first... It takes time for it to mature and pop and polinate and then grow seeds... you actually might be in the clear, depending on your timeline

    ... I really hope you are :)

    i pulled the little nanner off...keeping eye on her...only got maybe another week, two max...but if there was 4 or more weeks to go i know from experience them nanners keep coming back! and that's a lot of time to morph into full hermie! keep that hermie if you got a place (NeedGreen) cause them pics looked good :-?

    All you have to do is use tweezers and pull them off. Then take a spray bottle of water and hit the spot with a little. Late nanners are not much to worry about if you make sure to cut them out. It takes a while for them to spread the pollen and if your grow only has a couple weeks left to go they don't have time to seed out your entire garden. I have cut many nanners during the entire grow and never had a seed. But you do have to be vigilant.

    Looks just like the ones I had on a Killing Fields fem quick flower pheno. Now the ones on the Kosher Kush were proper male flowers, right there from the start. These ones seem to come on any time from the middle to the end of flowering. Nice pic, and nice share though.
