    What do you call the sacks that form after removing a bud?

    Although I have completed many grows/harvests and have scoured nearly every word on GWE, I am still at a loss when it comes to the pear or spade shaped sacks that appear after i thin out lower buds during flowering. I typically remove the little gremlins (they come off easily), but I have no idea what they are called which makes it tough doing any research ;-) See pics.

      You must mean a potential seed spot because it has not been pollenated. I thought seeds only grew on buds so thanks for the input.

      Preflowers will also make seed

    That looks like a calyx. Will turn into seed if pollinated.

      Thanks for the input! I guess I am safe in removing them then. Next time I get some pollen I will have to try it!

      You can remove them, but I like them. They can be quite potent especially the ones that grow close or inside the bud. Strip the ones lower on the stem by themselves if u want, but save the ones inside the bud.
