great thread, and this quote makes the most sense in any disscussion on pollen travelin great distances.
collectin pollen, with no air movement it falls straight down, does not float around like some would think as well.
on the hermie condition, i think its in all the asian lines, and tryin to grow um in less then the correct enviorment, is what causes the problems. but your point on shitty growers vs local growers, i can see where you would get a better product. grew some asian seed from a line outta vietnam, soldier back in the war had smoked it in a little village up in the mountains. he went back many years later and procured seed. that sativas been grown in that little area for many years. still hermies like a pro. theres been many a top notch grower grow um, and same deal.
hermaphrodites i believe are inherint in all MJ species/strains, any will flip if the conditions warrent it. its a survival mech within the plants. sativas tend to be less tolerant to enviormental changes.
