Hey guys I am at 22 days flower now. last night i gave a watering with nutes using organic Iguana Juice Bloom 4-2-6 and big bud 0-15-40 and molasses. before closing everything up i checked out all the budding tops and on my one and only Blue God plant two of the tops white pistil hairs looked like they were dying back (sorta looks like it was balding or a blow torch came too close) one is more then the other but everything else looks excellent. These two buds are more in the middle of the plant and lower down then the other bud sites so i don't think it is light related, not sure about nute burn either cause it isn't showing on any other part of the plant. what i did notice is that one of the leaves from a higher bud what sitting on top of the affected bud, same thing with the other affected bud so i trimmed away those leaves to open the bud site up to receive some direct light, ill get some pics tonight when the lights come on but in the meanwhile any suggestion or input on what this could be? or maybe its just a natural occurrence?

...I assume these aren't just red hairs... right? Red hairs happen.

I certainly hope you haven't been blowtorching anywhere nearby.

Ok here we go. I made these clickable thumbnails so you can go to the gallery and get a better zoom, the forum seems to resize all the images in the threads to a smaller size.


This is what two or even 3 of the buds look like, i found fan leaves that were resting on the spots the hairs are dried up.


This is what the rest of the buds look like on the plant.


While taking pictures i found this on the same plant on one of the higher bud sites, kinda got me scared here...is this a hermie? closer up it looks like a curled up leaf but light green *cross fingers*

Thanks on the herm info, i went ahead and took a tweezer and plucked the bastard out. as long as it doesn't overwhelm i can keep plucking? i would like to go another couple weeks at the very least before i pull it out so i can at least get some decent smoke for the hard work!

Also i took a cutting 3 days before flowering to keep as a mom till my next grow. will that cutting show herm traits as well?

anyone know whats happening with the dried up pistils in the first photo?

that can happen sometimes if they get sprayed. did you overspray the bud maybe? sometimes even a drop of water can do it. hermies happen, you can try and tweeze them along the way, but if they keep on coming you should consider either seperating it from the rest or just killing the fucker. good luck bro, i wish you a wonderful harvest.

they can also shrivel and brown up when they get pollinated, but at 22 days that would seem kinda early for male pollen. correct me if im wrong.

if you clone a hermie you will get hermie clones.

i kinda had the same situation with a leave sitting on top of the bud i think it is b/c the leaves is blocking out all light to that spot and it kills back the pistols it covers atleast that what happened to me

Do you have any possibility that pollen hit that girl? Looks like a bud site that was pollinated? Or it could just be normal dying off of the hairs for many reasons, keep and eye on here, and keep us updated

It cant be pollination. males were destroyed at 4 days flower and this is the first sign of the plant showing herm traits, during the first couple of weeks of flower I did spray the plants with fresh RO water several times, ill keep an eye on her and her bananas. also just realized the leaves that were touching these spots were necrotic at the tips about half inch, maybe this has something to do with it.

could be the lack of light I doubt the spraying of Ro did anything, could be the result of a light leak? I'm not sure I have never seen this in one of my grows.

The buds seem to have healed back 100% after cutting leaves that were poking at the buds and pulling branches further apart letting more light on them. As for the hermie, I have not seen anymore bananas or balls since i pulled that one i found.

if you clone a hermie you will get hermie clones.



I didnt clone a hermie (well I think i didnt), the clone to be grown out to a mother was taken before the plant went into flowering. Maybe it had some stress during my slight light tweaking? i have not seen anymore signs of herm after the first sighting, i am checking closely twice a day. if it is a true herm i suppose i will be seeing increased signs during the next week or two..by then i will be comfortable chopping her down a couple weeks early.

It is my understanding that it is possible for just one or two buds or branches to herm. Like a plant that is genetically programmed to pollinate itself at the end of flowering, leaving the over all genetics sexually pure. You did say you were reaching the end of flowering (final weeks) yes?

Am I misinformed?
