Stress factors of male plants?

6 posts in this topic

Hi hunters

As we all know stress affects female plants causing hermie tendancies.

Does the same apply to the male, if breeding with a stressed male does

he pass on the stress to new seed as in produce hermie off spring. One

could assume it does as its seems quite likely that the male would not

hermie and grow female parts.

Any info or papers to read on this subject would be helpful.

THX hunters and happy growing.

PEACE

Hi friend, 

 

Stress causes all kinds of problems in plants and also in people (aunqeue people do not hermi, I think .... haha).

The male plant can develop a small female flower, but only as a sign of being a hermaphrodite.

I would never use a stressed male pollen to make seeds. Because the offspring most likely also be hermaphrodite.

Just my opinion, be good sabaer more reviews :)

I agree 100% with the above too

Once they show that hermie trait in any serious fashion, the party's over as far as using the pollen I would think

I am certainly no expert generally or on breeding in particular though

good luck

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
