Bud rot and hermie?

I kept these two AK48s (Feminized Nirvana) on my balcony since May. They already showed their female sex then, but didnt start spit more pistils until last week of August.

So 2 days ago i noticed this swollen, raindrop shaped part of the bud and I just thought it's a sign that the buds are starting to get fat! >>> 1st Pic
But now i'm thinking this plant might have turned into a hermie? I notice more of them on other buds but smaller and pistils coming out of it. >>> 2nd Pic

I got curious and cut a real swollen one from the buds and squeezed it, and there was something like an immature seed inside! I could be wrong but thats what it seemed like.

What ya think, has my female turned into a hermie now or did a nearby male pollinate my female?

And also one of the buds was real moist. I saw something like a spider web inside of the bud... so I'm guessing its bud rot? I always thought bud rot smells but, but this bud still smells dank. Still, I cut the infected bud off, will this spread?

Ok well don't worry about them being seeds because there not that's just part of the bud it happens all the time. But the last pick looks like a spider (not a mite) is living there just cut it out and look for a small spider. But your good on the hermie though just part of the flower:) hope it turns out good for ya

Thanks for the info guys.
You can see that tear drop shaped thing on my in the first pic. Thats the one I squeezed. But that thing also looked like it was going to spit some pistils, I have more of those in other buds, not so swollen, and with hairs coming out.

Pokesmot, if you say spider mites are easily visible, I dont think i have them. I cut the infected part and checked the remaining stalk today and it looks like the web didnt spread.

All in all, id say the developments of the buds are on track. And u say if its going to turn hermie, the balls would be visible in a couple days? As of today, still no balls...

Pick off the seeds and let it finish. You could use whatever it produces in some fashion, unless you have other plants it could seed then kill it.

hermies have nanners, man. if you have what you think are seeds, then it got pollinated, but it really just looks like it's getting fat buds. if you see things that look like tiny bananas in your buds, then you have hermies, but if not, you don't. it's not always a death sentence, though. one of my plants hermied about a week before harvest, but i just picked the nanners off and she was fine. just be careful not to spresd any pollen and you should be okay

It's that swollen thing in the first picture, and the 2 smaller once in the 2nd picture.
I thought those are bananas?
Whatever they are, the swollen once have seeds inside of them.

I would say hermie 100%. If those swollen pods have seed looking things in them than its herm or been pollinated. I currently have 3 plants doing this because one plant grew bananas, didn't notice and they opened and released pollen. Look closely between your buds and the stem that was were the majority of mine grew.

Yup those things are between the buds and the stem. I hope its still ok to smoke?

I think i just found some more bud rot... damn! It's been raining these couple days. Dunno If i should let them mature or chop early.

Can someone confirm if this is indeed bud rot? There are brownish, greyish spots inside of the buds. With some rather moist, wilting leaves on that spot....

You do have mites, I dont understand how dumb people can be, in your 3rd pic, to the left of the web is larvae and to the right of the web is an acutual mite right in front of your face glowing, oh and the web duh. Its not always a crazy infestation, I had them but you would only find 1 or 2 here and there on each plant
