    or are they female flower??? This is from a bullfighter female. Sort of looking like a true hermaphrodite to me.

    Any other thoughts?

    No those are pollen sacs for sure. If those hairs on top are female flower pistils then it’s a full blown hermie.

    /most of the pods are standing upright and not down turned like a male sac. Rather confusing. A friend stopped by last night and said it was female parts starting new flower sites. They are are situated right up in the crux of the flowering part of the new growth. He says not to worry. I isolated it as I am inclined to think male pollen sacs

    I had a hermie I culled just a month or so ago. One of my AK47s turned hermie. Wasn’t a big deal. Just made culling it a no brainer.

    They don’t turn down until they are ready to spew their pollen. Then they’ll open like an upside down flower and release their load.

    Here’s a male cookies n cream by Exotic I’m flowering out now in a separate room. Gonna collect the pollen and pollinate a chocolate Diesel and maybe a Cali-O and AK47.

    Here’s a pic of my pollen catching rig. Just some cheap tinfoil to catch the pollen in an unventilated area away from my grow rack with females.
     
  13. Balls. Or pollen sacks

    I use the same method as well. used to use black kraft paper buts its easier to collect the pollen from the tinfoil.

    Ahh damn bro. That sucks. Don’t tell me. The prize is hermie pollen or seeds. Ha!
     
  18. I do this on a smaller level and brush in pollen in w4 to make small batch seeds. I am beginning much larger breeding projects currently, but i giggled when i saw your photo. I put them in totes and take the lid off for light and all that also. Pretty funny looking but it works great.

    Those are definitely male flowers, no question at all.

    Yeah I had it in a cardboard box until it outgrew it. Decided I’d put it under an led panel to finish up instead on a WiFi smart outlet set for 12/12. Should come in handy for these little pollen chucks. I don’t have the space to do anything serious. Someday though. Someday.

  20. How much space you got? I use 4x4 sections for hunting and breeding and i can do 100ish plants no problem in that. Csi:humboldt does similar and posts a lot about it on instagram. He's also a top quality breeder and person. Amazing person with fantastic genetics and a quality instagram feed. He doesn't brush in like i do, i'm talking space. The truth is you can trim every plant into a thin stalk and it'll flower great. I put 100 solo cups into a single 4x4 tray and flower. I just take the crown to sample and regenerate what doesn't hermie and looks good, which is part of why i use cups instead of beds like csi:humboldt. I brush in pollen on lowers i would usually trim off on days 23-30 and don't get stray seeds ever. I do 4x4 production or hunting in the same room. The issue is when you want to start flowering and inspecting males, because you have to control air. Anyways, just chatting and giving ideas.
