Hello! This is my first time growing hemp and I’ve been checking daily to make sure I don’t get male plants when today I saw this. Do I need to kill it with fire or are these just puffy calyx’s?
Welcome to ILGM forum. I’m not seeing any male parts. As far as the growth I’m not sure. May be a genetic abnormality. Obviously keep a eye on it and see if it starts to look more like male parts. I’m going to tag a couple of people that may have a better idea of what exactly we are seeing here. @Covertgrower @Hellraiser
I’m leaning towards a swollen calyx, but still inconclusive from the camera angle. Look for similar structures in the top part of the plant. The canopy. Should be clearer there.
Welcome to ILGM. I thought about growing some hemp, but haven’t taken the steps. Do you have a purpose for yours?
Thank you! I think I’m starting to see pistols today so I’ll just keep an eye out. As far as what I plan on doing with my hemp, probably using it for learning how to make oils, butter, soaps, etc. My state has a great farm program so it just seemed like a great time to learn how to work with the plant and have a fun project.
