Never seen a flower like this. Anyone?

    I've recently begun a grow using Nirvana Seeds, Blue Mystic and Aurora Indica, feminized. I don't know which is which in my flower room, but I can see two very distinct plants.

    The one in the pictures has been under 12/12 for 2 weeks, after having 1 week of vegging after sprouting and being placed under 250watt MH. Now, the plant is a little different than anything I've ever grown (only used bagseed and 'purple kush' clones). The leaves seem too heavy to stand up for one, and just droop. But not in a needing water sort of way. Just too heavy it looks as if.

    Now, there's these little 'flowers' everywhere on the plant. They LOOK like little seed pods, but there's no hermies in the room, and no males. And I dont see ANY male characteristics on the plant, other than these 'pods' or 'balls'. But not like male plant balls, I dont think.

    Now the pictures aren't that great, but I really hope someone can give me an idea of what I'm looking at here. Thanks in advance!

    1 entire week of veg after sprouting? Such patience and we can see it is paying off handsomely. That's quite a pair.

    I have the other 8 still vegging. Been vegging them for roughly a month and gotten them anywhere from 6-10 inches tall, with topping done at the 3rd node and the 2nd nodes of each topped branch. I put two in quickly to try the 12/12 from seed, but couldn't bring myself to not at least giving one week of quick veg.

    Well it will certainly pay off in the end. And how soon can we expect that to be?

    are you being serious or no? If so, I'm flipping all of them tonight/tomorrow. Nirvana says these strains are 7-9 weeks to flower, so hopefully, within 7-9 weeks! lol

    That is a big hermie. Pull it, after removing it, and hope it didn't already burst any balls. Decontaminate your flowering area in case there's pollen about. If the other works out to be female, watch for seeds. Make sure you have ZERO light leaks!

    I grow from seed, clone, and 12/12 from seed. I have had 3 hermies, all due to moving grow and light exposure. A single tiny little bit of light was escaping the veg area, it landed on a plant, the plant hermied. 12/12 from seed works. So does vegging, and cloning. I like to harvest with every other watering, so I run 12/12 from seed in 1 gallon pots, I also run clones in 1 gallon pots, and I run 4 week vegged plants, I get a weekly harvest, I get to keep my favorite plants going, and I get weight once a month.

    I killed the plant and it turns out it was the one 'mystery seed' I got from Nirvana for ordering at Christmas time. It was the only seed i planted in a peat pellet. I guess thats why it was free lol

    Nothing to do with this post but how the fuck did the dude like that post twice? lol.

    But dude that plant looks like it's all nuts, I don't think it was ever female to begin with. That thing looks like what I find in the wild during the summers around here.

    I'm SUPER LIKED!

    Yeah, that's what a male looks like. A hermie looks similar, but it'll have female hairs, also. Well, technically it'll have female flowers all over it, and you gotta hunt the nuts down.

    It reminded me of those plants that you run your fingers up in the summer and take off all the little buds, like wheat kind of i guess. I've had male plants before from bagseed, but they always looked really good. Big, strong plants, at least until i chopped them. This one was weird. It started growing giant leaves, and sativa like growth at first, so based on my size restraints, I felt it would be a good candidate for a 12/12 from seed, to try it out and keep the size down a bit. Well, after a week under 12/12, it didnt really even look like a pot plant anymore. Never seen anything like it, which is why i posted in here, and im glad i did! And what the other commenter said, now i know what to look for as far as hermies go.
