Bananas are forming on the top of my buds. I am aiming for 50% cloudy 50% amber. Should I pluck the bananas off? Let them be? How would anyone else go about this?

Hi, it depends on what you want^^... most time Growers want to get weed and not seeds... then you have to pick them away. If you want to have nice seeds from your plant ( because you like that strain) let them be. I had a Hermie plant, i took away flowrs around 4 times and she gave my a nice harvest.. no seeds. But i noticed them early, before female flowers started.... in your case it diferent. hunting "bananas" and your plant can go on flowering.

Sorry Janksy , but bananas immedialy start producing polen and pollinating the plant. try removing them if there's only two or five of them, but if they're coming up and there's many more than just a few of them, you've got a serious problem. Thing is unlike pollen sacks these are already starting to pollinate your plant ! be really careful removing them, heck even be careful moving your plant at all, personally i would put a black trash bag over it and throw it away if you have any other plants in the room, but the truth is, it's not the end of the world. Depends how far along you are, but make sure you stay on top of this situation, if you notice them spreading then just immediately harvest your bud , that will be a much better outcome than a fully contaminated/pollinated harvest. Sorry for the bad news, but it's the honest truth. Hope this helps ! :rocket:
