    Bud Growing On Leaf Joint


    0 Not allowed!
    Haven't seen this before. Granddaddy Purple. Which seems to be unstable. About half of GDP seeds from BC Seed produced plants that produced male flowers under a few buds. Which were removed with tweezers; most before they even opened. And this isolated oddity which I've never observed before.

    Yes, I’ve had those leaf buds appear too. Strange but not completely unusual.

    Grow enough cannabis plants and over the years, you will eventually see all sorts of weird growth characteristics.

    It’s a lot of fun... ;-)

    If not hermaphrodites, save some male flowers in a ziplock bag, and collect some pollen, to later, carefully polinate one branch.

    Now you’re breeding...

    Hey Doc quick question on hermaphrodites ... I have been told seeds from these will always be either female or hermaphrodites , I am skeptical but could be an interesting F1 cross yeah ?
    obviously you would need to breed out this trait later on ... Or is my source hitting the pipe too much lol
    probably could have just googled it now I think on it

    Have always in the past binned them when they show up in the grow - as we all just wanted big buds no seed back then - I still do but getting involved in creating new hybrids sounds exciting ...gee wiz I may need to retire so I can develop my inner Frankenstein

    Yes, just Google Yahoo, and look it up. Hahaha

    I’m not an expert in hermi’s, to give you valued advice, but can certainly direct you to some great info...

    There are numerous pages that explain this phenomenon much better than I ever could.

    But that’s why you came here to ask. To save you, the search effort. Haha

    Yes, plenty of opinions on and ideas,..

    I love finding a few random male flowers in my female plants.
    Knowing there will be some desired female seeds to harvest with my buds...

    @living the dream
    Some info on hermies. There are "bad hermies" and these plants are both sexes, no doubt. These are plants that have VISIBLE anthers in the middle of pistils. When noticable like this they ARE bad news. No clues as to the seed stock produced by these "bad hermies". I have never grown them out. I always yank them. The pollen would be TOO much for neighboring plants. The buds would be riddled with seeds.
    There is a lesser degree of hernie as well. These plants will grow bud and produce a few seeds WITHIN the bud as well. These seeds and "male flowers" are not readily noticeable upon initial inspection. These plants i have seen produce a banana, of sorts. It really takes a keen eye to spot these. I have found in my experience that these kind of hermies DO NOT ruin a crop. I grow these kind of hermies regularly. These seeds have given me males and females. Though they could have pollinated each other and made seeds with both sexes within the seed stock. I have never ran one ALONE to see what the resulting seed stock produces. ALSO...in my experience, the "hermie trait" is a dominant one. Meaning if you bred a hermie with a non-hermie, the resulting seed stock will ALL be hermie. Though the degree will only be as bad as the parent was. I have yet to be successful at getting rid of this trait through breeding. I am sure it is possible to "breed it out". Just not positive how many successive generations are needed to remove it.

    @Patient puffer

    thanks for the first hand feed back mate . I think it best I stick to trashing the hermies when they show up and concentrate on solid genetics to begin with ( interesting observation on the differences you have encountered with hermies )
    I appreciate your wisdom

    Keep positive genetics alive...


    There are already way too many great new strains to trial and appreciate the joys of...
