My current grow is twelve plants... the few survivors of my ignorance and incompetence.
One is a male. I've been ripping its balls off every time they get big enough to grab onto. Damn... I hope plants don't sense pain the way we do.
I'm only bothering with this one because I've read that the potency of male plants of some strains can be nearly as good as the females. I realize I'm risking pollination of the females unless I'm EXTREMELY diligent.
Assuming I keep this male, will constantly removing the pollen sacks result in a plant with only leaves and no smokable material?
