Hermie Issues :(

16 posts in this topic

Hey folks, I've had bad day :(

Starts with finding an open male pollen sack on one of my 3 week into flower WW clones the other day. Could have been there for god knows how long :(. It got destroyed. Then found tiny green seeds growing on my Afghani, hunted around and found more newly developed seeds appearing on my WW. HELP!!!!!

How long will it take for seeds to grow bigger within the bud? Am I ok leaving this for a couple of days before I chop? How big can seeds get in a few days. Started the flush yesterday and would need at least a few days more :( Wanted at least a week. They are just ready, some amber trichs on them. I don't want these seeds to get much bigger. Should I take them tomorrow? Leave a few days? Id rather have poorly flushed weed than seed weed.

Anyone know the speed of seed growth? Is probably all I should have said to start with. I've had a rough few hrs :( Time for a joint I think

Oh yeah, I'm using coco (why I'm in this section). Coco doesn't need a very long flush anyway apparently. 5 days is considered fine

The coco threads are a graveyard aren't they, lol. Anyhoo, I've went ahead and chopped my beauties today. They were just ready but would have liked some more amber trichs, never mind. Still worried about my SLH. She could do with another week but there could be tiny seeds developing as I write this. Do I chop early? Really don't want seeds :(

I may just be talking to myself, lol :) but if someone reads and has any advice on the speed of seed growth, please gimme an idea how long it could take my SLH to make them?

don't know how fast the seeds really develop, i've had a few once, but couldn't tell think it takes a few week before they become really seed like looking. but they will nayway be present even if they are only just new born seeds :(

Very sorry to hear man, so you think it is the afghani which polinated the rest? or was it from the WW?

Hope the smoke will still be good ;)

Cheers!

I'm guessing it could have been the WW. I took 3 clones from a WW that had hermied in mid flower. Think I posted when it happened on the LST thread. I told myself that it hermied through stress after flowering but just incase id keep an eye on those 3 clones for any signs. Problem is I've been preoccupied with changing my grow room around, fixing ventilation, got LA Cheese in the veg room with viable WW clones. Started 5 blue cheese. I've got so much going on and just neglected these WW's. Just missed the male flower until it was too late :( In my angst I've chopped the other 2 ww's down. They were in week 3. Got 2 SLH clones in week 3 that have been hit for sure. Grow them out for hash or just cut em now for hash? If they're hit they won't produce much more trichs so not sure what to do with them :(

Thanks for answering Dust

well i've had few polenisation case, and with only 1 sack open really you should not expect much, if you keep a close eye everywhere for any banana or male flower and try to wash your girls with water maybe as i believe it deasctivates pollen or something like that ;)

Good luck man

Thanks man, really appreciate the advice :) Everything has been going so well with my first solo run and then this happens in week 9. Gotta love the timing, the weed is still dripping with trichromes so it will surely rip after a good curing :)

Take it easy dude and thanks again :)

I would let the plants finish...did you say you are choppng down after 4 weeks ?? The WW you said was flowering for 3 weeks so I would letit finish up and then take the seeds out. at least the smoke will be done.

The 2 WWs have a chance of hermie'ing (genetically) so have just got rid of em. Should have done it from the start when their mum hermied. I've got quite a lot of plants now so have no qualms throwing them out. As for the SLH's, I think I will take your advice and grow them out :) Thanks :) x

Give your space a good clean even if only a wipe down with water* best is with a mild bleach solution and water to kill any pollen that may remain

Yeah I hear you dude, I've chopped the three WW ladies after 9 weeks and they are really lookin nice. I've pre trimmed the SLH and flushed her for.a few days. She's coming down tomorrow :). A week early id say but hey, like you said toke...you don't want seeds. Id rather have poorly flushed weed that's a more trippy high than seed weed with many amber trichs believe it or not :). Can't wait to chop her she smells great :)

Sorry bout the bad news buddy

Thank you guys for the words of consolation :) No more problems as of yet ;)

They are dry and ready for hash making :) I've scraped up and smoked some trichs that fell off during prep and it tastes amazing :) Blue cheese hash will be nice, even though it hadn't matured yet :) I will report the saving of a sad situation in a few days after dry ice time :)

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.
