So last crop I had some Hermie on me my friend said he wanted to grow them put because all seeds are feminized... He grew them out and got a ton of seed ... I can't believe these are all feminized....is this true?

there is a good chance they will herm, it all depends on genetics. I've popped plenty of herm seed with no issues, and a few others that wound up herming. If your environment is crappy enough to where plants want to force pollinate you're probably going to keep seeing herms.

I've grown hermaphrodite seeds in a 12/12 environment and had nothing but females turnout and knew nothing about their genetics or strain. Maybe I've just been lucky so-far.

It depends on the genetics I popped a ton of seeds that were a product of a ghost of throwing bananas and not one showed intersex then again I grew some bag seeds that were all hermi. Imo can't find out if ya don't pop em let's remember most ogs are from.bag seed

I feel like keeping hermie seeds outside will give you sexually healthier plants(just my personal experience) but if you keep environmental factors in check, you may be ok, but as stated previously, genetics has a lot to do with it.

If a female plant hermie s ( doesn’t really hermie but that’s another discussion) because of environmental stress
Any seeds wil be female and if the environmental stresses are corrected the seeds will flower like any other seed.
While those growing for profit or meds may toss “hermie” seeds for connivence many MANY others grow them out with great results.
As said before
Some of the most best well known strains started with “hermie” bagseed.
If ya got the space and desire plant em up!!!
Is that not what

I'm sorry but I'm not able to decipher your question.
Hermy genes are in the DNA. The DNA is in the Chromosomes.

Feminized plants disrupt chromosomes which effect the DNA, THis is called Chromosomal Mutation it can invert, translocation, and with cannabis often a segment or entire chrome number deletion happens and this almost always a defect in some form . Many times the defect will not show in F1's. You dont get additional chromosome locations with Fem seeds . You dont get 'balanced chrome' location with Fem plants or seeds...

The father determines the Hermy Gene state. In fem plants who is the Father? Do You see the disruptions with this question? How is the mother a Father?

Basic very basic

Agree'd - We have found many champs in hermy bag seed.

all of these girls were born from seed produced by female plants that were stressed purposely to cause them to grow male pollen sacs

pollinating themselves and other females producing seeds that are all female plants I have produced some pretty tasty strains through rodelization nd self pollination of cannabis plants in my experience 50% of the traits of a cannabis plant come from his father and 50% come from its mother when a female plant produces male flowers or Hermes The Offspring seem to take their 50% of male traits from whatever the father was of the female plant that was self-pollinating itself this has been a useful tool in breeding depending on the genetics that you start with from the beginning strains that seemed to make her morphodite plants with very little stress or no stress at all cto pass on the hermaphrodite trait to their offspring while those that had to be put under a lot of stress to cause them to hermaphrodite The Offspring tend to be less likely to sho traits in The Offspring. this being said all cannabis plants have the ability to grow both male and female flowers if they see that the need is there depending on conditions and a small space with a whole lot of nothing but female plants growing to maturity in it is 1 good spot to look if you want to see a female plant doing something strange as a last-ditch effort to further its species and create offspring which is something so deeply rooted that it can never be completely wiped out I do however use the hermaphrodite plants selectively using only ones that produce very few bananas that can be easily picked off by hand throughout flowering to keep them from producing pollen
