I have only just started growing my own weed and what I would like to know is on a female plant when she flowers it puts out all these white pistols now if pollen from a male plant was to contact say just one bud is that the whole plant now going to seed or will it just be that one bud. Thanks for any help

I know that what I don’t know is does the whole plant need covered in pollen to be full of seeds or if the plant will still be full of seeds because just one branch got pollenated. The reason I’m asking is I have some growing and I just noticed that one plant had some male pollen sacks I got it out of there but today I found a couple of seeds growing on two of the other plants. And I’m trying to find out if they are left to grow will they be full of seeds now or will it just be some seeds

Depends how much pollen and how far it was distributed. Oscillating fans could have blown it everywhere. If you’re near the end of flower then  you’ll soon find out.

it depends how much pollen dropped and if the fans have been blowing it around the room mate....

Its the birds ande the bees lollollol

 

The pollen is sperm and the pistil leads to the ovary to fertilise the egg!

Pistil, the female reproductive part of a flower. The pistil, centrally located, typically consists of a swollen base, the ovary, which contains the potential seeds, or ovules; a stalk, or style, arising from the ovary; and a pollen-receptive tip,

 

One grain of pollen onto one pistil leads to one seed, so you need many grains of pollen to fertilise a whole plant

 

Just like having babies lol

 

Life is amazing if you ask me, just the everyday things like this are mind blowing

It’s quite interesting to watch pollen tubes forming under a microscope, so much going on.

Im a total newb to breeding so i got a question too lol

 

In @Hamsterxxx case.. hermied plant throws out some dust.. the seeds u get from the females, will they be as good as seeds made with a true male. 

 

Id assume it would create seeds prone to hermie issues? 

 

Just wondered as i have a small bag of some i made lol

Straight into the compost heap with any males or hermies for me.  No messing around.

I’d like to try growing out a few males to see how they vary. Away from my ladies obviously. I think it’d be a good excercise. One day.
