Are Hermie Seeds Worth Keeping?

Will seeds from a Hermie be Hermie?

“Hermie” is short for “hermaphrodite.” Hermie cannabis plants usually look like normal female plants for the most part, but they also grow some male parts that produce pollen.

This causes seedy buds just like pollen from male plants.

Hermies are to be avoided.

Those are seeds forming..

Are Hermie plants less potent?

In my research, experienced growers feel the Hermaphrodite plant is actually more potent than a standard Female because the Hermie is a SURVIVOR. They are a strong, resilient plant, which leads to greater potency.

What do you do with a Hermie plant?

If they are late hermies and you can flower them away from other plant then it’s worth picking nanners. If it’s a early hermie toss it or can’t flower it away from your other plants, toss it.

Will a Hermie pollen other plants?

If your plant is a female plant that has been pollinated by a male or hermie plant it will produce seeds along with the buds. If the plant is a hermie that has been pollinated and also it’s growing its own pollen sacs (the ones that look like bananas) in the same buds, it will pollinate other female and hermie plants.
