    Does this look like a hermie?? If it is, could i just cut off the thing that looks like a seed?

    Like Kushcrosser said, it looks fem to me toobongsmilie:joint:. Even if you do get a hermie, take it from me, just let it grow. It's not bad smoke. I'll post a pic so you can see what a hermie at advanced stage of flower looks like:smile:.

    but you also gotta take into account any other plants that you may be growing. a hermie is just as dangerous to your crop as a male is man. It could pollenate your entire crop, and youll end up with seeded dank. If you can isolate that one hermie, and let shim grow on his/her own without interfering with the rest of your plants, then do that shit, those guys are right, you can get some serious smoke from a hermie - itll be just like regular nugs, only with a couple seeds in it, but if you cant let that shit go down, dont chop it man, give it to someone if you can. Choppin down a plant thats gonna produce flowers is crazy man, even if theres gona be a few seeds.

    I'm having internet connection problems today (at work), so I couldn't attach that picture of the hermie. I'll keep trying today, but if all else fails, I'll attach it when I get home tonight from work. K1Ng5p4d3 is correct in that if you have other plants, they could be affected by the hermie (btw, after extensive research, I found that it also might be an "inter-sexed" plant. Having both sexes in the same flower. Not sure how to really tell the difference, but either way, heshe smoked well). I also got just a couple of seeds. Nothing that germinated though. I couldn't remove the plant without killing it as I had another plant in the same pot. All-in-all, I didn't change anything and just harvested as I normally would. Again, I'll get that hermie pic up as soon as I can.

    +rep I just started getting pre-sex on mine... pistils, then today I noticed (what MAY be) male also... two out of three may be hermies :-/ (they had a hermie mom)

    I'm hoping to keep them, sounds like its okay? I'd hate to loose two for the chance of pollinating my last one :(

    (sorry if I tagented to my hermie issue, didnt mean to)
