    How do you know that it will finish in 45 days?

    If you have both sexes on 1 plant at Day 30, then you have a true hermie, and you should remove it. You don't want to continue flowering it, and you don't want to grow that lineage again, so toss it now.

    if it's only one or two male flowers on a predominently female plant go ahead and use the feminizer... but after a couple of years the ethelene in that would have degraded so it won't do much. Go ahead and buy dutchmaster reverse and penetrator and give it a good spray down, it couldn't hurt and it will preserve your current crop. If you want to spend less get sensa-spray but it can cause some wilting for a day or two. As for genetics, yeh don't make clones because you don't want these traits to be passed down.
    Make sure to cut off those male flowers!

    my shiva hermie starts flowering after 2.5 weeks by week 5 the stem has a few male flowers you can get these however in its tight buds these flowers will cause seeds resulting in small usually non viable seeds . if it can pollenate early enough you will get good ones. from developement of flower to pollen production happens rapidly 5-11 days

    i've come across A LOT of hermie clones. the male flowers usually show in the last few weeks. i might get 1 seed next to the flower. i let them go. not been a problem yet. these are just 1 or 2 small flowers, not whole pods.
