Hermies - is it worth growing out their seeds?

    So a few months back one of my fem BKRs hermied on me. I was thinking, will all the seeds hermie too? So I saved a few.

    I started a hermie seed ~4 weeks ago. No sign of balls yet.

    I am not breeding any of these just interested in seeing the results.

    We have 12 fem BKR plants going. The seeds used are from a hermie plant. These will continue to grow in their 4” pots until done. I will most likely dedicate a 400 hps for these at some point.

    Other than seeds in the bud, the smoke is just as medicating as my non seeded BKR bud. Just saying.

    Why not? If the smokes good grow em out, I wouldn't sweat a few seeds here and there in personal grow.

    I cant find it know but I read that if a auto hermies due to stress than you have a good chance of having female seeds. 1 of my girls from 1st grow hermied and I never knew until I was dumping buds out of my jar during cure found about 12 seeds

    Personally I wouldn’t intentionally grow out herm seeds. I have fem seeds to last me years and years.

    NOW - if I had no seeds and was young dumb and broke.…hell ya I would grow out herms. The seeds are a pita and that damn POP sound when you missed one sucks.

    Lmao

    my first grow was from bag seed. which is hermi seeds.

    all 5 turned hermi pretty bad. but I also know I had light leaks and my temps were stupid high.

    I have learned so much since back then. still have the seeds I pulled out of my first buds.
    want to try them again.

    All feminized too

    Hermie plant seeds - Here they are today well yesterday. I'll update this once a week or so as there is nothing to show. I now have these under their own 400hps 24/0. FFOF. No nutes.

    I need to transplant 3 of the biggest ones into larger containers. I have a couple ozs left and need some backup. :bigjoint: There will still be 9 hermie seed plants growing in the 4" pots.

    My guess is maybe 2 of the 9 might hermie. What I REALLY think is all will be fems.:hump:
