I got autoflower seeds but unfortunately my last crop got ruined because we went out of electricity and flowers turned hermaphroditis. On top of that they got to be huge monsters, friend of mine suggest buying a generator but can’t afford this investment right now. Is there a chance if you guys can tell me if those flowers are auto or feminized. Both plants are at week 4 now. Thank you
What is the source of your seeds and what did you purchase? Autos are almost all ‘feminized’. Unless you bought ‘regular’ seeds your plants are all feminized. Stress on these will often induce an hermaphrodite.
All feminized seeds are somewhat twitchy and autos in particular can be prone to hermaphrodite under stressed conditions. Having everything dialed in and optimized minimizes the chances of this happening but all growers have to monitor for this. More than likely the loss of light triggered a herm response.
This isn’t really the case. A more proper statement is Autoflower genetics should flower without a short day.
Any plant can go herm if stressed enough. The best bred genetics will be more resistant though. A plant that has sudden change in it’s environment that lasts long enough will have some sort of reaction. In the case of having no light the plant can only sustain itself for so long and then start having adverse reactions. Self pollination could be one of them.
I didn’t either. @Bruno_Capone could you pleas post some pictures of what you suspect to be male parts?
