Chewbacca started grow question 4 years ago
So I'm harvesting my WW and found a lot of seeds, also found Some seeds in NL (6 weeks old) the pollen come from the WW. There are still two other plants in the tent each 5weeks old no sign of male or seeds. What do I have to do with my plant!? WW and NL still smokable?:cold_sweat:

Yes it happens that Plants Pollinate themselfs. If they having Heat stress or to much stress at all. Mother Nture saysto them: fast fast go and reproduce yourself before you die.... anything stressed the plant that she pollinated herself. And yes the weed will be smokeable. i had the same on outdoors that year it was so hot ( 36degree+) that they decided to make seeds. The weed was still nice , if you ignore some seeds. Let them grow they will give you a smokeable yield at all

Hello @Chewbacca ! I just saw your message. These are not seeds. They are just some swollen fat calyx's unless you check them inside and you found seeds.This can be caused for many reasons ( genetics, light leak, too much heat and all sort of stress conditions). There are not many options for you. First option is to remove the hermie ( WW ) but i wouldn't do it at this stage since it looks great. Second option and what i would do is to cut off any male organs ( and keep an eye because they will come back ), take the plants out of the tent and clean the tent very good with a vacuum cleaner and some bleach spray and reduce the airflow for at least a week in order to stop any left pollen from moving to the air. For your next run you also have to make a heavy clean to your tent and yes of course the weed will still be smokable, it just won't be as strong. Happy growing ! :facepunch:

While unusual, that happens some time. Although if you got more than a few seeds (I've gotten up to 5) I would look for light leaks in your grow space. I usually store those seeds and use them in the future.

You can do a variety of things . You can check firstly to see if the plants have hermied this will determine wether you want to keep the seeds or not if the plant has hermied those seeds will have that trait and its just not worth it lol . You could also remove all the seeds and the flower that you have left you can smoke it , it will not be as strong as its supposed to be because it got pollinated but you can smoke it none the less . In these cases I usaly advise you make a concentrate out of it this way you can get the most bang for your buck . I would also check the surrounding plants and if they display any male sex organs i would cut them off gently , the pollen sacks need time to dry out in order to spread the pollen . If you find a hermie and cut its male organ of it may grow back so your going to want to keep an eye on it . At the end of the day usually males and hermies get cut down and thrown away , unless your trying to make seeds then male can stay but indeff not the hermie that has to either be treated by cutting the organs off and paying attention for new ones or just getting rid of it all together . I hope this helps you understand your situation and the options you have :) -Happy Growing!
