hermie? male? from supposedly feminized seed
    #414717 - 05/09/10 08:57 PM (7 years, 6 months ago)

so i transplanted today (see other thread) and i noticed something weird on the last plant i was doing. now, this looked totally male to me at first, even though the seed it came from is supposed to be feminized; but then i looked closer and the bottom half of it seems to be female. is this a hermie or just plain male? either way it's been removed from the other plants.

another thing to note is that the one other plant we have of the same strain seems to be showing sex already, at only one month old. now, a friend of mine has one of the same strain from the same batch (he used his credit card and we paid him back in cash); he planted his about a month earlier but it is already in FULL flower at only 4.5" high. the strain is Purple Pinecone, and from everything i've read about it, it is average in every way - size, grow time, potency, yield - and should definitely not be flowering or even showing sex so soon. does anyone know anything more about this strain? could the seeds have been damaged or stressed during shipping and could that be causing this weirdness? i really have no clue, but any information you guys can give me would be greatly appreciated.

pics of the hermie/male (my guess is totally male):



already showing female:




this is just fucking bizarre to me.

What vendor did you get the seeds from??  They could have gotten mixed up at the vendor and you ended up with an auto-flower.

i'd have to ask. it's a UK seed bank that my friend has used before with no issues. i already told my mother she needs to contact them some how, or rather, my friend who purchased them needs to contact them.



is this not weird though?

Oh it's definitely weird.  My guess is the seeds got mixed up.

Remember that feminized seeds don't always come out male.  And depending on the method they use to get the "feminized" seeds it could cause them to hermaph out, or at least give them a higher chance of that happening. 


In all honesty I never order feminized seeds.  Just get regular seeds, they're cheaper and you it always ends up being half and half.  Or more females than males.

yeah, i'm thinking a mixup as well, which is unfortunate but i guess it happens. sadly i doubt i'll get any sort of compensation from the seed bank for their mistake. i've still got 9 beautiful babies, even though one of them is an oddball mixup random ass strain that won't yield much.


so i guess i should just trash the herm then? i don't wanna risk it pollinating the other plants. it's already been removed from the grow space, but i've got a few outdoor as well, although those are probably going to herm anyway.

Kill that herm.  You don't want to run the risk of seed your crop.

Yah, always sad to kill healthy plants, but show no love for seed producing males/hermies.  Kill them without prejudice and laugh about it later :wink:

Anyways, definitely male in the first pic, unless you saw some female flowers elsewhere in the plant you couldn't consider it a hermie. 

As already said fem seeds are a ripoff, much better off saving the couple of bucks.

i've always thought the same, and said so to my mother when she was picking out strains, but we all know mothers can be difficult - mine especially - and she went with the fem seeds anyway. it wasn't my money so it doesn't really matter to me, but if i were the one to be buying i would definitely just buy regular and hope that my luck isn't such that i'd get stuck with mostly males.

I've ordered a fair amount of seeds and have yet to come out with more males than females.

i tend to have pretty shitty luck with stuff like that though; with stuff in general actually ....

i definitely agree that feminized seeds are a bit of a ripoff though.

While not rare, it is pretty uncommon to buy a 10 pack and not pull at least one girl.  So yah, if anything you can use this as solid proof that it's just a waste of money lol.  She paid more for her seeds and STILL ended up with a a male :P

This is an excellent example of why feminized seeds are not always worth the extra buck.
