If the nanner problem is still in control and you're not too worried the other plants will get fully pollinated, then maybe try this little trick before cutting her down.
If it really is just heat stress causing the nanners then bend the tops lower and see if this stops the nanners coming out.
You can actually "crush" the stem of the cola, at the height you're after, and then bend it to, say, 90 degree angle; tied to a stick. This way you won't snap the stem when you bend it down heavily.
If the stem is abit too strong so that you can't crush/twist the insides with your fingers, then find something hard and round, maybe a pen/pencil or what eve rand press the stem against that. Like you'd be "super cropping" the plant, you know.
Cannabis plants can take alot of abuse and still keep growing. I have done this a few times and the plants didn't hermie because of this. Perhaps abit stunned for few days, but soon you'll see the tip of the bent cola reaching for the light.
But if the nanner problem is too bad, then it's prolly best to cut her down.
