Males good or bad


#1

Should they be completely discarded. Are there any pros to them or is everything wasted on seed production?


#2

@Sidhartha41 Unless you want your females pollinated get rid of them asap. I throw mine in the trash then put a rock on top so those little swimmers can’t get out no way no how. It would be a good idea not to keep them because you want to have the buds seed free and for you not for propagation. Good luck and best of growing! :woman_farmer:

Thanks country. Here they are. They’ve been growing for 10 weeks. 17 on 7 off lighting. I’m a beginner full of questions. Are they okay? Am I topping or pruning correctly? It’s taking fo Eva lol.

If they’re males, throw them away. Maybe later in your growing career males will be of some use to you but not now.

Meanwhile, your plants look a little sparse for 10 weeks. Maybe you could find the “support ticket” and fill it out so people can try to help your future growing endeavors.

Yes sir. They were suffering from nitrogen deficiency. They are back on track as far as I know (which isn’t very much lol). Feeling a little overwhelmed as this is my first. Just trashed the males. Leaves me with two females.
