What strain? Banana kush? When most people have too many bananas, they make banana bread.

Sorry, couldn’t help myself.


It’s either the environment, genetics, or both.

I’m guessing bagseed?

Bananas seem to come from sub-par genetics (bag seed?) or from some sort of stressor - light, heat, etc

Have you looked into autoflower plants? Might yield you some smoke while you figure out the room.

During dark time sit in you grow room till you can see, then search for light leaks. Just found the fan control even with gorilla tape over it still pumping out blue light, I could see the plant by how bright it was still. Both power supply and speed control for the AC infinity S6 have a blue light on them.


Try getting some seeds from a different/reputable source.

I had some pineapple haze seeds that went hermie every time. It wasn’t light, or stress, it was just crappy genetics.

On a side note, I’ve tortured quite a few plants with ilgm genetics and zero of them have hermied.


Ya my bad luck, just trashed 3lbs of ILGM banana kush

One more thing to check is if you’re running leds, check to make sure they’re going out all the way. Almost screwed myself with some leds I was using for side lighting. Some reason the driver was pushing out a small amount of voltage, even when off, and keeping a strip dimly lit


I’m thinking you might be right I got 5 seeds from this other site and 1 didn’t germinate 1 was sick from beginning to end and the other 3 hermed on me. My next grow will be ILGM Maui wowie I’m hoping to have better luck


Now that is something I have not checked yet

How did you do that

both seeded

Have 6 of theses I’m planning to make cartridges out of.

Not a total loss

The other 2 I had I got 6 Oz off I wish I could have taken them all the way because I really like the smoke and cop a good buzz from it I’m thinking I was about 3 weeks from harvest on them. I just picked all the bananas off this plant and I’ll inspect it every 4 days when I water to see if I can finish at least one plant

Well even with all these plants going bad on me I’m still learning a lot. I think I have the curing down now


Ok guys I’m redoing my setup all my plants got bananas last time I just sat in the tent and I have no light leaks. I’m thinking it might be when I water I always pulled the plants and watered them could this be stressing them out?
