    Yeah i thought so... what do you guys suggest cut it down? Or pluck and keep an eye on it?

    Pa-Nature Well-Known Member

    Pluck if ya need the smoke .
    Let him/her go and collect the fem seeds.
    If your worried about seed ...cut it throat now .
    It also could be hermie due too ferts pr stress it may not behave this way later .

    nuts, if i where you I'd not save pollen or seeds from this one as it'll stay in the more possibilities of hermi in the long run. GL

    I had a plant that developed balls a few years back,that i caused some stress with, i sprayed it with a product called optic foliar switch & transport guessing it was around 30. bucks & within 3 days all the balls turned yellow and would fall off at the touch,it truly
    saved the plant & it did not grow any back smoke turned out OK.prefer of course not to use anything but in a pinch it worked for me.

    I wouldn't spray that on anything I was going to be smoking. Couldn't get it anyway as it's banned in Oregon and Washington state. I can't believe what some in the cannabis industry are putting in their products without telling the consumer. Proprietary blend means crap that's banned in many places.

    ODA Pesticide Annuncement: The Oregon Department of Agriculture has issued 12 notices of statewide detainment and stop sale and removal orders for horticultural products that contain pesticide active ingredients not listed on the label. The orders call for the product manufacturers to immediately cease all sales, offers of sale, or other distribution in Oregon.

    Optic Foliar ATAK, Optic Foliar Overgrow, Optic Foliar Switch– Tulsi Enterprises Ltd., Surrey, BC

    Pesticide Advisory Alert – Tulsi Enterprises Ltd.’s Optic Foliar AT-AK product containing salicylic acid, Optic Foliar Overgro product containing salicylic acid and 3-indoleacetic acid, and Optic Foliar Switch product containing ethephon

    is corrosive in acute dermal irritation studies using rabbits, has the potential to cause eye irritation, and has been placed in Toxicity Category I (the highest of four categories) for these effects. It is moderately acutely toxic by the oral, dermal and inhalation routes (Toxicity Category III)

    Human poisoning incidents involving ethephon include four cases of skin injury (irritation) in California as a result of exposure to field residues, one possible systemic poisoning case, and 29 telephone calls to the National Pesticides Telecommunications Network reporting eye and skin irritation from misuse of ethephon, sometimes in combination with other pesticides.

    If you are growing it for personal smoke, pull them off and keep on going. No big deal.
