I am a newbie to growing. I started my 1st grow from really good bud that I got in Jamaica on vacation. I started with 8 plants. after about 10-12 weeks I took cutting from all and tried to force flower them. When I did that 1 was for sure a male and the others seemed to be female. When I started to flower them I think 2 were also males. (it was VERY hard to pull out 2 of the best looking plants) the other ones seem to flower OK. Some of the plants developed a few seeds but overall very few and the flowers tasted pretty good but i am still trying to cure. The Plants got too tall for room and were above the lights. I think this caused 1 or 2 to become herme’s. and the question I have is, Will the clones from a herme always be a herme? I am pretty sure when I forced flower them they were only female and showed no signs of male sacs. I took the clones early in the Veg stage so they were not stressed at that time so should I be worried about Hermes now with clones?
I will be starting Gold Leaf seeds from you in a few weeks. I am trying the use of a screen of green for my grows but when trying new seeds do you think that would be a good idea or not. I know its not a sure thing for all of the plants to be all female but at 99% i think its good odds.
Thanks for all of the great tips and am looking forward to the Gold Leaf.
