  1. howdy all.
    i'm growing 8 plants (in soil) for about 2 months now.
    i used seeds from past stashes. i've read that this may be a set up for disappointment.....can someone please explain the "hermaphrodite" phenomenon?
    can herm's flower & grow buds?
    also, what is the sign that my plants are ready (mature enough) to flower (12/12)?
  2. well you can veg the plants for as long as you like(24hrs of light)
    I would say dont veg them more then 3 feet tall cause when you put them into flower cycle(12/12) they will atleast grow to be 2-3 times the size of what it was in veg cycle.

    Yes hermi plants can grow buds, BUT you will have MASS amount of seed, in turn kills the amount of bud you will end up with in the end, if there is only a few hermi spots on your plants just pluck em off.

    hope that helps a little.
  3. a hermi has both male and female reproductive organs and can polleninate itself. You will have more seeds than buds. It is due to the genetics of the plant and can be triggered due to light leakage and inconsistent timing of the off/on cycle. If happens, either cut your losses and kill it or attempt to remove each male pollen sac.
