I am growing for the first time and I am having a problem with one of my plants. The plant is two weeks into flower, and this morning while looking over the plant I noticed these little balls on one area of the plant. You can also see some white hairs as well. Also the plants leaves are turning brown on the ends and it didn't start happening until I switched to the bloom nutrients. Can anyone tell me if this plant looks like a hermaphrodite, and what could cause the end of the leaves to brown and what can I do to correct the problem? I have 3 other plants that are also all female with none of these balls on them. If the plant is a hermaphrodite can I pick of the balls and continue with the flowering? Thanks.
What strain is it? definetly hermied :( if its only a few try and pick them off and keep checking to see if anything comes back, if they carry on growing you need to move it/bin it if they dont i would keep it going, but do so at your own risk!
Like everyone has said, its most definitely a hermie. Personally, I would pluck all the balls off, and keep watching for more, and continue plucking. I've had several VERY BADLY hermied plants, that went on to yield lots of great bud
Im new as well and I have a question about hermies. How long before they burst pollen everywhere. I know there probably is no set time but an estimate. When do you know you are fucked. Hermies scare me.
I see some people getting hermies late in flowering and they dont sweat it. I guess because even if everything gets pollinated there isnt enough time for seeds develop. Lets say I got three weeks left flowering, do I get rid of the hermie or is it not going to do any harm?
Thank you everyone for the advice. I am going to keep on ispecting the plant daily and keep plucking the balls off. As of now it was just that one area that had the balls so I will keep plucking and hopefully get at least something out of the plant.
