high stress – high temperatures, light leaks, inconsistent light schedules, as well as other types of major stress can cause a healthy plant to hermie, though some plants/strains are more susceptible than others

Conclusion: Feminized seeds from a trustworthy breeder have a low chance of producing hermies, but the odds are much worse with feminized seeds from an untrustworthy source

Seeds created from “female” pollen will turn out being female (or at least as female as the parents).

Many growers believe that feminized seeds can cause hermies, and there is some truth to that. In order to create a feminized seed, one of the parent female plants had to be forced in some way to produce pollen.

With all these bonuses, why would any small-scale grower use any other type of seeds?

Hermies can be caused by many things, including…

What’s most important, whether you get feminized seeds or not, is to get your seeds from a breeder who has a reputation for producing quality genetics. That is the best thing you can do for any strain to ensure a smooth grow. With a great breeder, you have a very low risk of running into any sex or gender problems.

Nice to have your thoughts and experience on this interesting characteristic, Cheers.

2) Besides the calyx becoming more swelled or the actual visibility of the seeds themselves it is almost impossible to tell a bud that has a seed (or multiple seeds) in it from a bud that does not. You need to be attuned to the more subtle signals of calyx swelling and maybe comparing calyxes that seem more swelled on one flower to another calyx on a different flower might be a good help in indicating whether or not a particular flower/calyx has a seed. Also, if your flowers seems abnormally heavy that could be another little indicator, but even with my experience in smoking & handling buds with seeds inside them – it is tough to tell! If you are trying to rely on visual indicators be aware that when seeds begin growing they are not brown but green because they are immature, so they’ll likely blend in well and be tough to spot.

Hey all,
This grow might be a journal, I’ve documented it well and had my fair share of set backs and obstacles that’s for sure.
Recently, after a res exchange and clean I must have bumped my tent into one of my light timers and it was unfortunately stuck ON for about 5 days before I noticed. This is in about week 8 of flower by the way, needless to say she got a bit upset about this and threw out some nanners. I’m not overly upset about this as I’ve never seem them before and I found it very interesting at least. After about a week I decided to pluck the ones I could see, my guess is she threw about 20-30 nanners and I know I haven’t got them all.. My understanding of what a nanner is, is the u protected stanem of the male flower.. That is the part which produces and holds the pollen.. Although one could argue that there is no pollen evident and even upon Inspection with a microscope I was unable to see any pollen on the nanners that I plucked of varying ages. Anyone have some more info on that?
Some reports out there do state that there is a chance your nanners will be sterile and not pollinate your buds, other reports instruct people to put their entire plant into a fire/trash which I personally think is ludicrous.
I’m keeping her going, she’s only 3 weeks away from harvest and I really cannot see any evidence of seeds. My questions are:
1) Have you developed seeds from nanners? If so how severe was it and did it really ruin your plant?
2) how do you tell if a seed is developing inside a calyx?
3) stress is not coppied and passed through genetics so, I presume these seeds would be healthy and feminised and unlikely to throw nanners if grown in ideal conditions.

1) No, I have and no personal experience with hermies or seeds in my buds (yet) so I am just essentially telling you what I have picked up from scouring other people’s issues on the forums over the last few years combined with my own common sense obviously. I do not believe nanners will completely ruin anything & if I did get them on one of my plants I would be bummed for sure but I would do exactly what you did and just try to pick as many as I could find before they matured.

3) Yep, I don’t believe your incident of stress had any effect on influencing any further hermaphroditic traits in these seeds. You are completely right in assuming that the seeds would be feminized because your female plant pollinated itself. The seeds should be viable and if anything, should be looked at as the silver lining at the end of this incident because now you should have some good seeds to use in the future. The only catch is you won’t know how many until you start breaking up your flowers to smoke.
