pollen does not cause hermies, dirt doesnt cause hermies.

as said, check for light leaks, and double checl your light cycle, make sure it goes off and on when you think it is, make sure lights arent coming on during dark cycle.

get some clones or stable genetics that you know are unlikely to hermie.

IMHO

1.If a plant makes good smoke then a few male flowers like you have is not a reason to quit that clone. There is no better example than Chem D. I have been cloning Chem D for years and it hasn't increased the herm rate And there isn't any "get better genetics". It is the better genetics because it will get you very stoned.

2. Seeds do not make buds less potent.

When the plant begins to seed it takes a tremendous amount of energy from the plant to create the seeds, energy that could have been used for bud development. I do believe that bud that has seeded is not going to be as strong as the same strain seedless.

if all of that is in check, and you're still getting hermies its your genetics... I would try something different anyways if you can...
I have light leaks all the time and I cant recall the last time I had a hermie....... clones that didnt hermie before their first flowering dont hermie due to a little light leak.....

Light leaks are way down the list compared to genetics....

If the theory of light leaks is true....then clones could be just as reactive as seed plants.... not even close.....

I have on very rare occasions through the years found people who claimed to have light leaks and never have hermies.

This thread has more posts from people claiming light leaks than all I have ever seen.

Light leaks have been a known cause of hermies since Ed wrote his first Ask Ed.

On the other hand, we have also spent half our civilization's existence 'knowing' the world was flat. LOL

Perhaps this is just one of those old wive's tales that get passed down but have no basis. Or, maybe not. LOL

Might be worth a poll to see who's room are leak free and who's are not.

Maybe try a new strain from another breeder.

Also stick with regular seeds.
