Was cutting off a really low bud site today and broke it apart and found an oval shaped green thing that looks like a small seed. My plant is 6 weeks into flower. Any idea what this is?
That looks like a seed to me, you must have a ROOSTER in the henhouse. A male or hermie could be a small banana hidden in a bud
Is that tiny thing to the bottom right the seed? Did you cut open that calyx?
Yes i broke open the calyx, the tiny thing is what came out
Do you have other plants in the grow with it?
I’m still following along, hell I’m starting to second guess myself on if it’s a seed I mean it is a seed but I don’t remember ever opening a calyx that wasn’t pollinated. So that could be how they look inside, just a completely undeveloped seed
If a flower is pollinated, the ovule becomes a single fruit, essentially a single seed, an achene. The perianth tightly clasps the seed and usually contains tannins, which give mature seeds their markings or spotted coat. Between a thumb and finger you can rub the perianth off of a seed.
So maybe the little ‘seed’ is actually just the ovule?
I’d just watch it for a little while. Honestly the whole plant still looks fine and far enough along…
I was thinking it had to be something like that once there were no male parts found anywhere, I mean it’s possible to bring pollen in on your clothes but pretty unlikely. Thanks @Caligurl I believe you have solved the mystery and saved @Ale 's day
Thanks! Looking at the diagram it definitely is an ovule. What a great diagram.
Couldn’t agree more. That diagram was is very detailed and spot on prefect for explaining this
situation. Bravo to @Caligurl for posting such a gem. Brilliant. Bravo. Standing ovation!
And a heap of sweat off your brow. bro. It’s not a seed.
Growers worse nightmare
