Zkittlez Auto - Partial Hermie?

I have two branches on my Zkittlez Auto that appear Hermie, about 2 weeks into flower. They’re in a controlled (heated) garage grow in a 4x4 Vivosun tent, housed with three other plants - 1 other Zkittlez Auto and two White Widow Autos. All four plants are in week 9 of life; one Z-Kittlez is in week four of flower. The second (plant in question) is about two weeks into flower, same as the two white widow autos.

Need to know if I need to trim-off the branches, or pull the plant? Can the pollen even send other female autos into seed?

Even if it is half and half you need to get it out of your tent carefully

I believe all ILGM autos are supposed to be feminized… might want to contact support about it.

Check your other plants for signs of balls. Contact ilgm maybe they will replace the seeds. I had a couple autos go hermie around week 4. Sucks but it does happen. It is all genetics in my opinion!

Several growers have reported hermaphrodites off of ILGM Zkittlez Autoflower. I would definitely reach out to the seed shop.

I bagged mine up to carry out. Trashing my duct line, cheapo anyways. Taking apart fans to clean. Basically full detail clean of whole room tent is in. Luckily I have a new tent anyways. Cleaning old one out though to use for drying. Since im about to start some fem autos, not taking any chances! Wife happy since im cleaning whole room anyways. Even carpet cleaning!
