How accurate are feminized seeds


#1

Has anyone had feminized seeds turn out to be male? I ordered 5 blackberry kush seeds and germinated 2. Then 5 weeks later i went into flowering and one ended up male. Just curious how often this can happen because im new to growing. Thanks!


#2

where did you get your seeds from?


#3

This website


#4

Possibly stress induced? Wait for the pros to chime in.


#5

Haha yea it could be. One most certainly was female but the other was taller and had obvious pollen sacks forming. I was just curious if feminization can fail, or if it was my fault or something. I understand how fragile these things can be


#6

Differently wait for the pros on this one.


#7

Only the pros knows


#8

I’m no pro but! Did it go male or hermaphrodite?

Feminized plants are more sensitive to stress than a regular female plant. Temperature, light, nutes, pruning regimen all can stress a plant into hermaphrodite if done incorrectly.

Hope that helps.

I appreciate any and all advice. Im positive it was a male plant. I flowered both at the same time. One has wispy white hairs, the other had pollen sacks forming. Plus it was much taller. I feel like it was male from the start but who knows, it could have got stressed out

Does this look familiar


#12

Essentially. It didnt survive long enough to have the hairs though, if it were to have them.


#13

Well im going out on a limb here but if then pods looked like pawn shop sign it was a male and if it looked like a mini cucumber it was a female elongated and more singular in comparison to males clusters. But remember i’m not a botanist but i play one on tv.


#14

I believe you. But my original question is if this can happen with “feminized” seeds. Because i purchased 5 feminized seeds and the second one i grew was a male. I know what a male looks like. Id like to know if its happened to anyone else. Or if it was supplier error.


#15

No worries but thank you. I dont mean to cause a scene about it but its more of just a question of how accurately human beings can manipulate this biology


#17

@Licksore I certainly didnt think you where trying to start any issues
Just wanted to get you the help with your question i
If its just the one bean that did this I wouldn’t be to concerned myself
And as i stated i have not heard of anyone getting reg or male seeds when ordering fems
Happy growing and best wishes

I can only add that I haven’t had one male among the seeds I planted. Although like many here I still have quite a few stored and only time will tell.
