    Hermie in flower ?

    Found these purple looking spade shaped things under the buds , thinking it got stressed and made pollen sacks?
    kinda sucks this plants flowers got really big , harvest early ? Kill and throw away ?

    Looks like calyx to me-they get very large towards the end-normal growing female.
    Regardless what they are- do not harvest the plant- it's too soon, the trichomes are too clear and likely to get cloudy over the next 10 days or so.
    A pic of the entire plant and also where on the plant your current pics come from, would help make a better determination.
    It's all bullshit - until you smoke it!

      Agree just fat preflowers

    😲 fudge , I chopped the 2 I had left from this batch , trimmed and drying as I type this , dang oh well first grow is a learning experience , I thought maybe it got stressed from me peeking in the room to look at the humidity gauge,

    thanks guys , kinda sad I jumped the gun , gonna get the newest batch of seeds I about 2 to 3 weeks so that gives me time to work on the room

    is there any articles on this ? Like why would It make more preflowers? These top flowers were bigger than a golf ball !

      preflowers where always there, they just get plump/swollen as they reach end of season, when its ripe all calyxes get plump

    Dang. Those are seed pods, but they dont look to be pollinated. Male parts look more like bananas.

      Coinhall09 ,
      plants Herm or produce bananas/nanners late in flower will usually have no effect on your grow. Here is a link with some pictures, 0 seeds from the whole tent.

      Cannabis will continue to make calyxes and repeatedly put out preflower at the end of a grow, This Is How They plump up!, it is recommended that once it's repeated this three times to go ahead and cut your plant.

      Hermi plants can be hard to spot even if you do get a Herm most likely will not affect your grow if you catch a quick enough, here is pictures of a true Hermi that need to be cut.

      I'll teabag your drumset.


        What is all the fuss about Hermies? Some of the best weed I ever smoked came from a hermied seed. If I find a seed in my weed. I keep it, because it will be female.

          Soooo those things are NOT pollen sacks ?

          I guess I didn't notice them or pay enough attention early on in flower.

          I was pretty good at the temp and any light during dark times so I was like dang I can't even grow a plant with all the info I've read.


            This is what I do when I'm unsure of something - go to GWE table of contents and find the stage my plant is in and go to that section of the website - then - if that didn't help - My backup is Ed Rosenthal. I have a book - then if I'm still unsure, I'll throw out a question on this forum.
