Hello. Well, I chopped my Critical Mass CBD and sampled some via quick drying and discovered 2 seeds. I don’t know how this happened (I mean I know I have a hermie but how did it go unseen this long!?)
I want to find the culprit. I have 2 other plants still growing. One is a Blue Dream Auto in a tent, the other is an AK 47 Auto. I put the AK 47 outside 2 weeks ago to make room in the tent as it wasn’t doing much. The buds are very small and haven’t grown
at all in weeks. It has been flowering for 8 weeks now. I have a feeling this is the hermie but I don’t see any signs.
I haven’t found any nanners and I look at my buds A LOT. I must be missing something. I took a few pictures before I left but was in a hurry and can get more when I get back.
Any thoughts? Thank you!
I think your plants look great! 2 seeds I wouldn’t be concerned about in the least. Sometimes the nanners are so small they never get opportunity to extend out of the flower mass and open to spill pollen everywhere. Even a few dozen seeds wouldn’t really phase most plants. When natural pollination takes a place a decent sized plant will have hundreds or even thousands of seeds.
Thanks. I fear the Blue Dream has a lot. I see a lot of swollen calyxes and she hasn’t been fattening up. I gives her another week or 2 before she’s done. I know this grow is basically going to do what it’s going to do but I want to be prepared to know what to look for so finding the issue plant will help me see for myself.
Also, there has been no stressors that I can think of that would have turned these girls. The AK wasn’t even trained…
I see some of those pics outside, what are the chances you have a neighbor with male plant? If you’re seeing a plant full of seeds I would expect you to see some nanners if coming from your plants.
The one outside has only been out for 2 weeks. Interestingly, I see no signs of seeds on the AK. The buds are so small they couldn’t fit any.
I’m on 7 acres with very few neighbors.
Gotcha. The pollen can travel for miles if in abundance, but doesn’t seem like your issue.
I would just go through everything good and see if anything jumps out at you. Wouldn’t take but 1 plant to get everything in your room. Hopefully they are just a few randoms.
I’m going to go through bud by bud when I get back. I’ll post an update on what I find. From what I’ve read, nanners should be easy to spot.
If they’re going pose significant threat they should.
Well, I’ve looked through the remaining plants and CM drying in detail and found zero nanners. I did discover seeds for on my AK that’s outside and seeds on the Blue Dream. Especially with the young larf at the bottom. Should I trim all that off?
I don’t understand. They haven’t had a stressful grow. I have all conditions met with multiple gauges and automation. The AK and BD came from weed seed express. The CM CBD came from ILGM. Anyone have trouble with them? How often is this just due to genetics from suppliers?
It’s all very frustrating.
@Lacewing got any thoughts on this situation?
Which one did you bring outside? The AK ?
It was giving you probs in the tent right? Or you wanted to make room for other plants?
I might be wrong lol …
But if anything in the tent has seeds
And the AK has seeds
I’d say the AK is the culprit unless you live by others that are growing and their plants are spewing pollen …
Also it takes some time for seeds to actually mature on the plant and if you say it’s in the larf
It’s prob been there since the AK was in the tent especially since that under develops
I’m really no expert I’m such a noob it’s hysterical …
I’m growing dispo seeds
So they are seeds I found in buds …
Roll the dice with them …OUTSIDE lol
Those plants look really good and I wouldn’t be worried about the seeds just don’t let any pop and put a hole in your shirt
Yes, I moved the AK because it wasn’t doing anything and I needed room. Every plant has seeds. They are all separate now, so at least there isn’t any cross contaminating anymore. I thought for sure it was the AK because it is so under developed. It should be ready to harvest any week now. Just wish I knew what I did wrong.
The blue dream was fattening up and then stopped last week or so. I think it shifted to making seeds. Hopefully, most buds were beyond the ability to make seeds. Wish it was easier to spot those damn nanners. I saw another guys post and he only caught it because he happened to look at the area through a microscope.
I knew you wouldn’t have the answer, no offense, I know you’re new like me and haven’t dealt with this, but you’re the only one I know on here and you reply! Thanks!
You know the saying …one bad apple spoils the whole bunch …
You prob didn’t do nothing wrong at all
But it’s just too much of a coincidence that the entire tent and the Ak Outside has seeds
Could have just been genetics …herm traits are in all the genetics some are more apt to herm than others
Some it takes stress …some for no reason at all other than it was a seed from a hermie parent …I’ve read a lot above it it there’s a lot of myths and misconceptions about it
No offense taken what so ever …I always try to reply even if I don’t know …and I’ll always say I have no idea of I don’t know …last thing I want is to give someone wrong information
Yes, I want to blame genetics, but what are the chances! My first grow! I’ll be fine if there aren’t too many. I just don’t want them to be littered with them. And who knows what will happen with the AK. The thing looks like baby buds 2 weeks into flower just hanging out, not doing a thing. And they’re 8 weeks in.
The AK is concentrating on seeds
Genetics. Many strains have been made by crossing a hermophidite with a female to make female seeds. Many strains are clone only and hermophidites are often mixed up in somebody’s remake of an original strain.
Sad but true, but hermophidites have been mixed all in the gene pool by breeders making female seed.
