Hermies - is it worth growing out their seeds?

    Yea, that should be fine. Worst case, you get some seedy bud. No harm done. The only time I'd really recommend against it, is if you are in the middle of a big breeding project, and can't risk stray pollen.

    These "hermie" offspring would be good to use for testing any new techniques, as well, such as LST, topping, nutrient comparison, etc.. There would be no wasting of your best seeds.

    3-8-18 I've plucked the lower leaves off. Plants are roughly 28 days from germ. White hairs showing. No nanners yet. I started a weak nute feeding.

    I’ll grab a pic in a bit.

    I also took two of the 4” pots and translated them to 2 gal bags a couple weeks back. I’ll snap one of those too.

    I started with 12 of these in the 4" pots. I still have 10 going in the 4"ers. I transplanted two of them to 2 gallon bags about two weeks ago. All these were planted at the same time and are the same age. Lesson: Don't grow in 4" pots. :clap:

    I may have pre judged the white hairs. My eyes suck. I just took a closeup pic. Could be maybe maybe not.

    i don't see white hairs at all......looks like it's holding on to it's original way.

    the last time i saw white hairs was when mine started flowering, the flower was a nice yellow tint, when she hermed she flipped from that yellow, and the flower turned white......

    i have a feeling that the 2 in the 2gal pots will stay to the original line....think if it turns it will be under heavy stress...best suggestion i would follow if it were me, is to leave it alone and let it do it's thing naturally, if it's there she'll show ya....

    Here are the 10 herm seed plants. No herms at all. It's hard to keep these watered in the 4" pots. They use up water like mad. Ok buds though.
