Man, I'm so sorry about that hermie! But Weeze's right, not a total loss. Old heads don't mind a few seeds! I know I'm disappointed when I buy a bag I really like & find no seeds! I've actually complained about it! But I guess people who never grow & only buy their smoke may see things differently. I only buy if I run out between harvests, & I'm not too proud to grow the seeds from kick ass smoke.
-- So I say make a little hash (silk screen, low tech & easy), & just let people know, hey, there's a few seedsin the bud this year. I think you'll be okay.

Around these parts an O is 200-350. Trimmed up some Afghan Haze and it was some good smoke and looked really good as far as bag appeal. Bad thing is that it has some seeds in it. Some buds worse than others. None of these seeds are fully mature with some very very small and all greenish still.
Had a guy come look at it and said it was no good and all he would give is 200 for a 1/4 lb. Took a bud to another person and he smoked it and said it was really smooth, looked great and good potency as well. He didn't mind the seeds and offered 4x as much as previous rip off guy.
So hopefully not all is lost. I've dug out a good deal of the seeds since then. Many are still in their but I got out a couple thousand of em at least. Lol
Only about 125 more plants to go lol
Only thing I'm dealing with now is the monsoon. Been raining now and cloudy for almost a week. Had to cut about 20 plants due to mold covering them up. Got a dehumidifier along with fans blowing on hanging plants in the shop.
I tell you what, as much stuff as their is to do I need 2 hired hands just to keep things going around here. Haha

Well I've chopped now most of my greenhouse and all of those guys were covered in seed and disappointed in the yield as well.
Some plants were around 7 O but a couple around 1 O. Of course it was nothing but seed. I have about 35 more plants left still. Yes it's now the middle of November and it's supposed to get down to 22 tonight and for the next 10 days it's gonna be highs in the 30's to low 40's with lows around 19-22 degrees with some chances of freezing rain and sleet.

Now my plants I have left has left me scratching my head.... Got about 12 plants of critical mass and these are all clones of my mother from last year and I took some in late August which was the time period I was expecting with these. They are a sativa dominent looking plant with a good taste and high but yield hasn't been very big but the smoke really mmm.

I have some Neville's Haze 6 plants, Neville's Skunk 3 plants, Mango Haze 5 plants and some various breedings of others I've done. Now some of these other plants I have I had some more that I had outside and they were done over a month ago but the ones I got in the inside they look like they need 2 weeks or more. The Haze's look like they need 2 more months I just can't get over how slow it's taking these inside the greenhouse vs outside.

I had one plant that was from KC Brains that was just a spectacular looking plant. It had massive colas on every branch and it was planted reall late compared to the others and it looked pretty awesome. It had some seed in it but not a lot. Then we had a cold front stall out right over where we live in early Oct I think it was. It got kinda cool and rained or misted everyday for 8 days straight. I bought more fans and had fans blowing directly on my more indica doment plants like this KC39. I ended up chopping her too early because I could see mold on a bud.
I trimmed her up and the colas were really nice and firm and the size of your forearm. I ended up cutting a seed out of one of the buds and noticed a bunch of white mold come out with it. So I broke open the bud and it was solid mold on the inside. I looked through the rest of the bud I had trimmed up and 3/4 of that had white mold on the inside. I ended up throwing out 3/4 of this beautiful plant. Still got 8O off her. Wish I had some clones of her.
Speaking of clones. I put out around 50 or so clones in my greenhouse 3 weeks ago so I'll be glad when they start putting on if they make it.

But overall my outside plants have been far and away my biggest yielders and earlier finishers and had much less mold. I put most lot them out in July on a last moment kinda decision. I had them in 3 gal pots I my greenhouse and they were a foot tall. Didn't have the room so out they went. Glad I did. They ended getting around 7 ft tall on the biggest one and of the ones I have gotten too I haven't gotten less than 305 grams.
I think my critical mass/ Mulanje is gonna have a pounder in their.

Another big yielder for me was Iranian Auto/ Mulanje. Seems everything I bred the Mulanje too has yielded very very well. The smoke of my sour diesel and Critical Skunk has been really popular. Think the skunk is a little better smoke as far as taste and effects go. The Sour has some people complaining of being paranoid as hell off it.

I have some questions??....Skunk.
Where on the equator are you? Weather temperature exedra... Are these things you consider growing such a wide spectrum of genetics. And the numbers you run, wow. Back to the genetics. Stick to one breeder or group of breeders who have a good rep on the work they produce.
Next be sure to inspect every three days regardless if you have time. Find a person you trust, or do not give yourself to much to handle.
Did you find the culprit that created this problem for you? Was is marked as such so you are able to track its origin? Important factor here... Not only for your problem but genetic wise.
PH can have a major issue bringing male tendencies back into the picture. Even on a stabilized variety. Sativa varieties can do this as well late in flowering.
Last but not least...Planting them at a incorrect time of year can lead to a huge disaster.
I sugest you read a little on genetics. And move on to some new discoveries that help you understand a tad bit more.
Remember if you only give a seed a month or two of life before inducing you create a unstable females/ Unless auto varieties that are from where?..
Farther away from the equator

hey, heres a old outdoor test grow a mate of mine did for me some time ago yet some thing happened similar to your experience it sounds like,

Different plants yes however my mate had these photo plants in a glass house and usually stressed with heat and abit under watered and half the plants or some got a lot of hermie sacks as you can see, the rest was fine though,

Shame you didn't pull em out earlier when having the chance, we live n learn aye.

I live in the Midsouth of the southern United States. Typically on most years it won't hit freezing until the end of November or so. This year has been odd. It got down to 11 degrees and was around 15 for lows for a period of 3 weeks and since then it has been mild for this time of year and not hitting below feeding since.
I selected different selections of genetics instead of sticking with just 2-3 is because I am wanting my plants to come off in stages. Some plants come off first week of September anther set in the 2nd week and so forth. The problem was that none of the advertised times when it was supposed to be reset were ready. Every last one was a month behind advertised time of year to be ready.

I also do not induce flowering I let Mother Nature determine that since they are outside. The reason I did not stick with one breeder is everybody is wanting colorful buds and MNS does not have that as I have seen. So I looked for some purple and red buds to please those who live to gripe about wanting them. And I don't think the soil would of caused the one to Hermie. It was just plain bad genetics. It was not a feminized seed but a regular one. It was supposed to be purple as well and even in cold weather the other females of this seeds stock did bit in the least get purple even when the temps got cold.
The others produced very well but it's gonna a job trimming them.
This is my last time growing them.
I think next year I'm putting all of my hazes outside somewhere. I think they will finish faster that way. My critical skunk did well in the green house even though they were late finishing. I personally think it has to do with the diffused light as condensation builds up in the top of the plastic.

Thumbs up

Didja grow any of your new seeds from the pollen fan party? You probably had a few new killer strains hidden in there.

In my GH & covered grow area I have had a similar experience. Mine was due to sneaky males I missed when I was huntin them down. I got so many beans that at harvest a lot of them dropped & grew the next year.

I got several new to me strains. One I call Simba, one Cleopatra, one The 13th Gate & a coupla others.

I called the ones I didn't select for future strains Wild Child. I do about 150 plants from regular beans every summer, & it gets crowded.

I know it's been months since yer last post, but thought I'd add a coupla cents worth. Like I said, I betcha got some great strains in that 'mess'.

You got an accidental 'farm line' grow [open field pollination]. Not necessarily a bad thing. Plus you shouldn't have to buy beans for a long time!

When it happened to me, I went with it & got outta the strain 'box' a little. I first called my 'mess' Nature Made. Worked out well for me it did.
