My both San Fernando Lemon Kush has male flowers, i cut them out and put them in the back yard with the hope to be fine in the next weeks. My question is, do i try to keep them healthy or is to much risk? has been past 2 days and i dont see any male flower. Thanks :)

Hey there so hermies aren't fun, theyre exhausting trying to keep up with getting the pollen sacs and the bananas out...but if you can stay vigilant and get them out asap and before they open you'll still get some harvest it just might be less high quality and a little seedy. Also if the pollen takes to the outside air it can easily fertilize your whole neighborhood. Definitely keep it away from your other plants, and we'll all send good energy that some good things will happen. :) oh and after this grow definitely sterilize the heck out of tour tent and the room surrounding wouldnt want a little residual to get your next set of ladies.
Happy growing.

Hi there! Well, pollination happens very quickly, and one small single banana hitting your soil can produce hundreds of seeds and 'cannibalize' your buds. Plus, if you're growing outdoor, you're not taking the risk for yourself but also for all the growers in the area (up to 5km around you). I would kill the plant in a closed and impermeable environment, to ensure pollen is not spreading around. I'll be around, keep us up-to-date and good luck with your last weeks!

Don’t take the risk. Get rid of it unless you’re breeding.

If you have any other female plants, I would not risk the chance for them to be pollinated, if you don't, then go ahead.
Are they photoperiods? If they are, keep in mind that outdoors in the city there'll never be completely dark and that might make them go hermy even more.
