Firstly, I’d like to say hello and introduce myself. I’ve been lurking here for a few months and I must say that I am beyond impressed with the knowledge and guidance of everyone in this forum. I realize you all don’t have a clue who I am, but I feel like I know all of you! I’m not big talker and rather kept to myself, I’m the quiet one… at least until you get to me LOL So, hello everyone!
Now for the fun part. I purchased 10 of the Chronic Widow Fem seeds last fall. They arrived very quickly! Unfortunately, 1 was crushed. But, customer service was great and gave me a discount code for my next order. So, I planted 4 of the CW seeds. They all germinated and I began my grow. All was well until about the 4th week of flower. That’s when I learned what a hermaphrodite was. Prior to this grow, I’ve had 3 successful grows and never encountered a hermie. Quite possibly because I’d always grown autos.
I had nanners on 2/3 of my buds, they were everywhere! At that point I decided to cull all 4 plants and cut my losses and begin anew. I already had the other 5 CW seeds grown to about 4 nodes so I was ready anyway. I chalked it up to a lesson learned and would keep a watchful eye on my next grows. I ran everything through my mind as what would’ve stressed my girls to herm. I concluded that it must’ve been the very cold water I was using. My grow space is a sealed room built into my garage. I kept my water outside the room and it measured at about 60 degrees. So I thought possibly thermic shock was my issue. I checked my room for light leaks and didn’t see any.
So on to a new grow. I kept 4 of the new girls I had already started, gave one away. They were doing beautifully, again. I watched them like a hawk. Looking for balls and bananas. 4 weeks into flower and i find balls on one of the girls! No way!
I’m in week 7 with my one and only girl from the 10 CW fem seeds I purchased. This has been a very expensive and frustrating 2 grows. I don’t know what to expect of this last girl. I’m trying my best to get her to completion. Ever since I fix the light leak I haven’t has any issues with her, She looks great and smells wonderful! I don’t know anything about hermies and my biggest question is… will she seed? I guess I will find out in a few weeks. I figure she has about 3 weeks left till harvest. This is one of her buds…
Anyone venture to guess what I can expect from her? Thanks!!
