    yeah your yield wasnt close to what you were hoping for but you walked away from this with more than just some good smoke

    all those things you mentioned are the hallmarks of a seasoned grower!
    how many people do you know who ahve successfully propagated their own plants?
    feedings and nutrient strength?
    / who isnt looking for that perfect ratio?

    no my friend, this was a great show and i hope its helped you and others here!

    as far as your new thread?

    Good evening pop_rocks.
    I think the new look icmag is messing with your .gif. I noticed I had to add pics to my auto thread post differently than I normally did. Must be some bugs to work out in this icmag mobile I think they call it.

    I think you may be right that this wasn't a failure. I do however need to start really spending the time to look close at every node of my plants every day so that if I have a problem I can deal with it. It seems like the bigger the plant get the harder it is to really focus in and see the nodes and see balls. I've found and booted 5 males form my auto grow and it's so easy to see on the little young plants.
    I'll be interested to see how this stuff smokes. At least a couple weeks early and a mix of clear and cloudy trichomes. I'm trying a different style of drying. Since I have low humidity I just striped most of the leaves and hung the whole plant to dry. The one I did Saturday morning is not even close after 5 days. Last time with higher humidity I dried in the tent with the ventilation fan and filter going and it only took like 3 days. This slower dry method might be a good one for me in winter. I'll defiantly put up a smoke report when I sample it.
    You are too kind and thanks for the positivity and support.
    Your front row spot in the new thread is about ready.
    Time to go down and put the autos into their new tent.
    Respect...Fiddy

    Greetings friends.
    Last night I switched the light off on this grow and the show is just about over. I'm a bit disappointed with how it's ending but trying to stay positive. I learned several things on this grow that will help me in the future. I learned how to take cuttings and get them to root. I learned how topping affects plants and how to get more colas and a much better canopy. I learned that plants don't like to be root bound and I learned how to see symptoms of that. I'll be transplanting at least twice in future grows. I also learned not to be afraid to use nutes even at close to full strength, always starting with low doses and working up. I also learned how to manage space in the tents more efficiently. Nothing to hang my head about.

    For now I will keep this thread going and also my auto flower thread. I'll have more time to concentrate on the auto grow and thread. I'll also be poping some new seeds in a couple weeks. When I start these seeds I'll get a now thread going. The new thread will be a continuing grow thread and not focus on one grow at a time since I plan on having mothers, clones, veging plants, and flowering plants at any time in the future. I'll probably call it something like "Fiddy tries to grow plants without seeds".

    I'm sorry this wasn't a better show and I want to thank everyone who stopped by and the regulars for being there to read my rambling and sharing their wisdom. You guys make icmag a great place....Fiddy.

    this all the way
    once a plant is heavily seeded its goal is to nurture those seeds and not produce the sincemillia flowers we want
    she is not trying to produce more flower and she will not pack on the resin like an unseeded plant
    you might get a little more maturity in the resin glands present
    i dont think it would be worth it to continue these plants unless you were trying to produce seed
    /but being very prone to hermi this is not a good mother even for seed

    my vote goes "no"

    better to cut your loses and clean out the space, like you said the autos will be very happy in their new home
    Good evening pop_rocks.
    Thanks for being honest and I'm with you and Rodehazrd. Time to move on and focus on the one grow. I was getting pretty busy with both tents packed anyway. Some lessons learned and also that I need to spend a lot of time looking for hermies when flipping next time. Going to recheck tent for light leaks too. Can't be too down and since I can get the autos moved I'll be popping some new seeds in a couple weeks.
    Thanks for your opinion and let's hope for a better grow next time. 2017 is still going to be a green year dammit ..Fiddy.

    Good evening Rodehazrd.
    Thanks and I respect and appreciate your opinion. I've been thinking cut and move on for a couple days but was trying to kid myself into thinking it would improve. I'm going down to get one more look at them and will probably pull the plug. It's hard letting go but I think it's best for the future. Thanks...Fiddy.

    Opinions welcome

    Greetings friends.
    I need to ask your opinions on something. I'm going to watch my last 2 plants closely but they are at least 2/3 seeded. They seem to be stalled out and not progressing any the last few days. I've herd that once they start growing seeds they put all their energy into making the seeds and not into flower and thc production. I really don't want to waist another month trying to finish these if they will never finish up. I have 6 autos in veg that are about ready to go into the flower tent and take advantage of the bigger light. I'm wondering if I should just cut my losses and ditch the other Larry and the Girl Scout and get the tent cleaned up and move on. If I fuck around and spend a bunch of time trying to finish the seedy girls my autos will probably suffer from lack of powerful light. The way the flowering plants are looking they will finish super slow and might be really full of seeds if they do finish anyway. So here are some questions I'd like some opinions on.
    Is it true that heavily seeded plants will not finish or will take a long time to finish?
    If I don't see any progression should I assume that they are stalled and will suck?
    If you were in my situation what would you do?

    I was planing on them finishing in 2-3 weeks and would be happy to give them that much time if they look like they will be something good in the end. I don't want to leave them in and have them go an extra 2 or3 weeks to finish since I know I won't get a great harvest anyway.
    Thanks in advance for your opinions....Fiddy.

    So it's both luck and genetics In my mind.
    I wonder if it's possible to predict like on a breeding square ?
    I see folk bashing Swerve of CC but if you keep looking there's real fire in his gear. And some of it is stable.
    I hear good things about ace I'm trying the bangi.

    Good evening Rodehazrd.
    I agree with you that it's not just fems or regs but the plant itself is predisposed to hermie for it's own preservation. It's something I have to get better at looking for, finding and just cutting and getting rid of in the future before it messes my whole harvest up. I have no doubt that an experienced grower could do better with these genetics and a new grower like myself is more likely to stress my plants. As we know it's this stress that brings out hermies.

    As I said when I got these seeds I didn't know as much as I know now and would have gotten reg seeds if I was buying them today. I'm not going to blame swerve or anyone else because the more I read the more I learn that this just happens sometimes. My first grow was with his genetics and went really well for a first time. I have read the threads that bash cc and also ones that people have had great luck with his beans. It might be something I'm doing wrong and need to fix on my end. That said I still want to try some new gear and heard that Bodhi has some great stuff. I've also read that reg seeds are stronger than fem seeds even if they aren't hermie prone.

    I read about abusing a cut with light changes to see if it is likely to hermie before putting in a run in commercial applications, sort of like gas lighting but with different intentions.
    I plan on popping my larry in april but being regs I dont think they have the same parents as the fems. I do agree with you though it does happen to a lot of strains. I think less in regs.
    Good Reframe play with the seeds.

    Good morning Rodehazrd.
    Your right it could be either of the Larry's or the cookie. I'm pretty sure it's the Larry 1 because of how full to the top it is and the others seem to be not as much up top. I doubt you'll have the issue with regular seeds as you are right about these being fems. When I got these seeds I didn't know what I know today and thought it would make my grow easer. Not going to be using fem seeds anymore. I'm just going to get regular seeds and pop twice as many as needed and find the best lady's out of them to grow out. Just gotta keep positive and keep learning and growing.

    I'd say take this opportunity to practice seed starting once they mature enough, haha. Try all different kinds of methods since you can just chuck the seeds once they sprout (since the genetics are in question).
    Good morning GG.
    I spent a few hours reading the threads on hermies on icmag last night. More and more I'm thinking that plant was going to do that no mater what. This is really looking like a case of the plant throwing male flowers right after or while putting out female ones. I think I just got unlucky and planted a seed that happened to have that trait. From what I've been reading a lot of the elite's have a slight predisposition and then you put 2 or 3 of them together to make a strain like Blackwater or Larry OG and a few of the offspring are bound to have this issue. Just gotta suck it up and move to the next challenge.

    That's great PMA looking on the bright side and using the seeds to practice germination with. I may do some of that. Thanks for the positivity bud...Fiddy.

    you put so much work into this and the plants were growing so well
    it would surprise me if this was solely from environment, these were from feminised seed,non?
    some plants are just prone to hermie and no matter how you grown them you are going to get seed
    /landrace thai comes to mind

    so have you found the plant that is shedding the pollen?
    all is not lost and you can still use the seeded buds for like cooking or maybe extract, but you want to get her ("it"), out of the grow room
    once you locate the culprit, spray it down really good with just plain water
    this will hopefully cause the pollen to stick to the wet plant and not spread as you take this one out of the grow tent

    this will not really effect the plants in veg, but lets spray down the grow area with some h202 and wipe things down really well
    take your fans to another area and run them for a little while (20min) just to blow them out, as well as spray and wipe down
    what were going for here is wiping down any of the potentially contaminated surfaces with mix of water and peroxide
    /if you ahve another disinfecting mix you like, like bleach, you could use that too
    /im not sure how long pollen is viable in the environment, but we want to clean up as much as we can

    this really sucks man and hopefully it was contained to this one space
    were these from the same seeds that you ran last time and had same problem?

    i dont think this is anything you could have done on this one
    sorry news friend
    Good evening pop_rocks.
    Yes in both cases the seeds were feminized from Calli connections. I still haven't located the balls on this one. I'm assuming it's the larry1 because it has the most seeds and has them up higher that the other two. I cut it down on the other side of my basement and I'll look again but never saw any balls. I think they formed once the buds started forming because I never saw them. I'm no expert but I've been seeing balls on my auto plants from a mile away and have no trouble spotting them. I have a lot more air circulation in the tent this grow so that may explain why the pollen got up so high on the plant.

    I learned some things this grow about transplanting and not to be afraid to use nutes so even if there isn't a lot of smokeable bud it's not a total loss. Now I'm really glad I have those autos ready to go right behind the seedy ones. The autos should be done in another 6 weeks so I'll have some buds to smoke then. I've ordered some regular bodhi seeds and I've heard nothing but good things about his genetics so I hope this is the last time I have to deal with this. A few seeds in the lower stuff I can handle but not this head to toe stuff. I really hope it's just bad genetics because I don't know what else would have done this.

    I'm guessing most of the escaped pollen would be trapped in my hepa filter in my tower fan and the rest in my carbon ventilation filter. I'll defiantly give everything the wipe down with the peroxide and water. I'll clean the fan and filters well and give the tent a floor to celling wipe too.

    I'm not going to let this get me down or discouraged. When I first found the seeds I was a bit upset but I have to keep trying. It sucks but I have to move forward and I'm hoping these new genetics are going to be the shit.
    Thanks for giving me some tips on depollenating my space. I hope I can get it cleaned up and have some success in the future...Fiddy
