Aussieau Posted April 29, 2016 Report Share Posted April 29, 2016 (edited) Ok guys/gals ,I know there is a heap of info regarding hermies etc all over the net but I can't seems to find an answer for a few questions I have.I'm currently starting week five of flower and unfortunately around week 3 I had my best female (of three) go hermie also unfortunately I didn't notice until shim dropped pollen and impregnated my two other girls. As soon as I noticed I removed the hermie outside and sprayed down the two other girls with water. The hermie I cut the balls off and left it outside to grow and hopefully it lasts long enough to make into hash (no other male parts have formed).Now two weeks later I can see numerous seeds in the remaining two plants albeit prob not more then 100 on each plant.I have read various info that once a bud has been pollenated it stops producing thc to focus of making the seeds ..... Now does a bud only have to have one growing seed to completely stop or will the rest of the bud continue growing basically as normal albeit a bit slower/smaller? The trichomes seem to still be populating/growing and overall i only noticed roughly 15% of the white pistils turn brown from pollination so there is still majority white pistils on the plant .... Will those calyx still swell in the final weeks?Finally I noticed around pollination that the fan leaces started yellowing and then on one plant almost every leaf has started to yellow... Could this be from the extra nutrients used to swell the calyx with seed upon pollination ? Also I have read that once pollination has occurred a female plant that would otherwise hermie won't as it's been pollenated , if that's the case could one use a plant that has tendency to hermie and selectively pollenated one branch therefore stopping it from 'turning'? If that's the case it could also be used as a preventative in all cases? Has anyone tried this or have any knowledgeThanks And finally does the bud look ok for 27 days since 12-12 flip (first pic)29 days other pics (decided to pull her outside for a better look at the yellowing) Edited April 29, 2016 by Aussieau Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
