Hermie weed

If you do keep her to harvest and she does produce seeds, I highly recommend against trying to grow these hermie seeds, as it’s very likely they’ll have the same problems as their mother.

The safest option is the pull the plant completely. This will ensure that no pollen sacs do any accidental pollenation.
The balls are only growing on the one branch. If she is a hermi, is there a way to amputate the bad branch to protect the rest of the plant?

Answer: Yes, this plant is a hermie / hermaphrodite.
Also, will she continue forming buds or is it a male plant at this point? Also, this plant is being grown in a grow tent with another female. Should I keep this one around or butcher it now to prevent from pollenating the other (apparently healthy) female plant?
Yet if you’ve only got a couple of plants, and you’re willing to be vigilent while looking for new balls, then it’s definitely possible to pull all the balls and let the rest of the buds continue developing.
However on a single 10″ branch, I can see little ball formations (shown in the second plant). They look like male pollen sacs. Could this mean my plant’s a hermaphrodite? This is my first grow in a grow tent. The plant is under a 600w MH grow light. The growing medium is soil (Fox Farms Ocean Forest soil) and my nutrients are the Fox Farms Nutrient Trio for soil.
Question: This plant is growing both male and female parts. Is it a hermie? What do I do? Can I pluck the balls and grow her to harvest?

These are two pictures of a single flowering plant that’s been in the flowering stage for about 2.5 weeks. She is showing beautiful white hairs / pistils up top.

Is my plant a hermie? She’s growing flowers, but also balls…. Can I still harvest her buds? Question: This plant is growing both male and female parts. Is it a hermie? What do I do? Can I pluck

Tape up any lights on your equipment like fans or thermometers, and seal any vents or ducting letting light in. When you are happy that there are no light leaks in the grow room, put the plants back in, and begin the flowering period.

A male flower looks a little like a calyx, but, it is round, rather than pointy, it will have no hair coming out of it, and it will be on a stalk. Don’t get the 2 confused, you do not want to throw away a perfectly good cannabis plant. If you suspect a male, or hermie, and you’re not 100% sure, then ask for help in the forum, and get a second opinion.
To reduce the risk of the pollen escaping, and pollinating itself or a nearby plant, you should turn off your fans. Also, spray some tap water onto the pollen sac before removal. When the pollen is wet, it will not be able to travel in the wind.

It may grow a little taller than females do in the veg stage, but until preflowers are forming, it is not easy to identify with 100% certainty, if a plant is male or female.
Bananas are a clear sign that your female cannabis has hermied.
After weeks of vegetation, your plants will be ready to flower. This is when they will display signs of their sex, either male, or female. But sometimes, you may come across hermaphrodite cannabis plants, where the plants will display male and female parts.
Light leaks are easily overlooked, but any light in the grow room, disturbing the plants night time, will cause a female cannabis plant to hermie.
One of the main causes for hermaphrodite cannabis plants is light leaks during the night cycle.

A piece of pollen from a cannabis plant can travel over 20 miles, and still be viable. Though, if it’s exposed to direct sunlight for too long, it will become less viable, as the UV will kill it.
