Does this look like a hermie?? If it is, could i just cut off the thing that looks like a seed?
Maybe its me but I dont see anything there that says anything about the sex of that plant.
Its a fem...and the thing that looks like a seed..is part of the stalk
they get like that to support alot of weight later down the road.
Like Kushcrosser said, it looks fem to me too. 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.
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)
I am attaching a couple different tops that went hermie on just the 1 plant. Sorry it took so long.
