    What do hermie plants look like? I think one of my plants is one.. its 3 weeks into flowering and has a good amount of bud on it but theres all these things that look like seeds, and some of the have opened... I thought it was maybe a "pod" for the bud to come out of but i dont really know..
    If it is a hermaphrodite plant do i kill it? move it from the other females? it sounds kinda cool but i dont want it fuckin my shit up haha

    some pics would help. Don't get confused between the vagina looking things at the internodes and male flowers, it has happened to me. If you're seeing whit hairs coming out of the calyx, you're in good shape. If you've got balls where the hairs should be, you've got a male. If you've got hairs AND balls at the internodes, at different places around the plant it's a hemie. Are you growing outside? Are the "seeds" showing up in your buds? Male pollen can travel several miles, I've heard.

    I have lots of bud, and lots of white hairs. I had NO males around my plants cause there never was any to begin with. There probably is other plants near mine (Not mine) but the pollen would have to go through forests and shit so I doubt it.

    I'll put some pictures up tomorrow, but the best I can describe it is theres lots of bud, but in-between the hairs and nugs, theres these little seed-like things. There green, and some have opened, and at first it SEEMED like the bud was actually coming OUT of these little pods, but now its all over all of the buds and its freaking me out..

    I used this weird fertilizer stick that I think is meant for pollinating big trees on ONE of the plant and well its budding like MAD compared to the others so i REALLY dont know what the hell i did

    You got yourself a hermie it sounds like, and if they opened, it pollinated the plant it was on at least, and possibly nearby plants as well. A hermie doesn't usually throw as much pollen as a full blown male.

    Sounds like a hermie.
    BTW pollen from Cannabis can travel up to 100 miles on the wind so it could have been some distant male or hermie somewhere else. But if not, if you see banana-shaped, small yellow sacs on your buds or anywhere on your plant, its a hermie. Look up pictures of hermaphrodite cannabis plants and compare with yours. That's the best I can do without pictures of the plants in question.

    Heres some pictures of my plant, I just moved it away from the others and then re-planted it. I also took a branch off and took a few pictures of the "weed"

    Hermie!

    Kill it, dry it, and smoke it(or make hash). Definite!

    One other thing. Spray clear water over all your plants to kill any loose pollen, and minimize seeds. Seeds fathered OR "mothered" by a hermie are useless.

    Good luck!

    Wait...isn't it true that feminized seeds have 1 parent that is a hermie because it gives the seeds produced a 80% chance of being female?

    To the OP: that is a hermie for sure though

    If those were the ONLY seeds available, I'd agree.

    The problem is, you still must cull the hermies/males(depending on the type of hermie). I prefer to know what to expect. Many hermies don't show balls until well into flowering, and then, maybe only on a few branches. If you like seedy smoke, have at it.

    From my experience, I agree with you. I got a hermie in my first grow that didn't show balls until the week 8 of flowering. I'm still debating on what to do with the seeds...

    I moved it to a new place.. I want to grow it as big as i can, then smoke it (or sell it cheap)
    Will i still get high from smoking it? And would i be able to take the seeds and use them? and how come the seeds are green, and not brown like the ones i used to plant it?

    Yes, smoke it. Weak but it will get you high.

    Ain't seeds. Male flowers.

    Throw the seeds away. Hermie seeds aren't worth the trouble.

    most people don't know s**t, just because your plant shows a bannana it doesnt meant that it's a hermie. Thats why everyone gets freaked out with the name Hermie, the picture in thid thread is a hermie, full blown pollen sacs & pistills, not just the odd bannana here & there. Hermies are rare, a plant with a few bannans is just trying to carry on there genetics, doesnt mean hermie.
