The Straight Scoop On Hermi Seeds

Discussion in 'The Breeders Lab' started by Dutchcity, May 17, 2018.

  1. What’s the straight scoop on true Hermies...will they produce viable seeds if left to pollinate?
    If so, will they be mostly Hermies males or females. 54F09E47-94BB-4D2F-8FC0-3A2801993E70.jpeg

    Thank you

    Natural hermies and not induced will cause off spring to be hermie temdency.i wouldnt breed with a natural born hermie plant unless it's an s1 and you know what your getting into.

  3. Ok, great. What about a clone from a female mother that was induced into a hermaphrodite?

    Not gonna lean to hermie bc it was induced.gg4 was from a hermied plant.alot of stuff from gg4 is prone to hermie.
    Anything in the line that hermied on it's own is gonna pass down the trait.some will be worse than others.selecting a mom from induced fems int gonna be that bad

  5. Awesome info. I have 24 plants with some good genetics that i got lazy about, threw them outside for awhile, and bam Hermies. I’ll continue to grow them, do some crosses for fun and save seeds. Maybe something interesting will pop up..

    Problems and headache
    Just crack the wallet and get some FEMS to start. With experience move onto sexing regs.
     
  7. If you're talking about the plant in the pic you posted... well... it's a girl and I can't see any boy parts.

  8. Progeny will have traits from the parents. If you breed with hermie prone plants, you are selecting for hermie prone plants.

    That aside, I don't see any male flower parts in your picture.

    You might be looking at a calyx .. If you have a bruce jenner youll know it...the bananas are yellow.. Like a banana bushel
     
  10. I agree. Think it’s a calyx he’s looking at. Not saying my eyes are perfect but I don’t see any signs of it being hermie. At least not in that pic.
