    Could it be something you are doing to get that many herms out of so many different strains? I have dark helmet seeds can't wait to try them

    so the dark helmet and ninja fruit were both full blown herms throwing ball sacks and female parts late in veg.....the rift were all nanner herms later into flower maybe around week 5

    yes it is in part my growing conditions. I'm outdoor in Hawaii in a greenhouse where i have grown many successful crops. Hawaii is about the best growing conditions on planet earth aside from rainy winters and most strains love it. I said in my post that i just think the ocean grown crew don't get enough tester data from different growing conditions. (outdoor, greenhouse, etc.) maybe they do but i've never had hermie issues like that before so must be in the genetics.

    I agree with not enough outdoor testing but indoors things seem to do great. He is running a living organics test to see what strains do best in those conditions but I don't think really anything outdoor. Could just be finicky strains that need prime conditions, it's about finding what works for your growing conditions can't really blame OG for that.

    Gotta disagree with the testing thing... Ocean Grown lounge is basically their testing forum.

    I really haven't heard of any herm issues other than this and I didn't have issues with the rift or Ninja. Part of the hobby i guess..always a bummer.

    i have seen numerous videos on youtube with OG genetics having some herm issues indoors even. Medgrower1 had Alien rift herm on him, greengenes garden had dark plasma herm on him, and i just recently seen a video on a jedi go grow where all 14 phenos hermed on a guy that said he has never had herm issues in his grow room before. I'm not bagging on ocean grown because all the best breeders have herm issues as well......DJ Short, TGA etc etc.....i love vader and crew and will still buy packs from them....just taking a break

    here is the vid of the jedi OG herm fest......i actually had a pheno of jedi that was unbelievable but took way too long to finish.

    There's a recent grow of it in here and he said it turned out great and only used 4 seeds and found a pheno with really good smell and frost. I have a pack I'm waiting for some space I can see what I get. But he said she's a keeper

    my bro, i'm not trying to talk people out of growing ocean grown because i had herm issues in my outdoor environment.....name a breeder that produces 100% herm proof strains.....you can't. Ocean grown has very solid breeding practices and i have found a few insane keepers, Alien rift, jedi Og, and Ninja fruit and right now a jawa pie. Very chronic and terpy strains they have. This is an ocean grown growers forum so i'm just being honest with what has been going on.

    Can't wait to get the next release of Jedi Og

    I grew 3 obiwons. 2 were crazy mutant males. 1 female. Huge yielder of lemon pez flavored wands. Effect was decent, it just took forever to finish. Never took it past 74(scheduling), but it always looked like it needed 10+ more. I regret not running her 12 weeks, at least once, but that pheno really wasn't what I was looking for. Culled after 2, 3 clone runs.

    I go by what the trichomes are telling me unless the smell is really good at that point and that's what I want at the time but I like deep medicated effect so later harvest works for me. First seeds I started with was bag seeds so you really have no set schedule or expectation other then what the plant is telling me and I like to do that with breeder strains

    Ive found some of the dankest strains will herm on me. So i train them extra remove extra lowers and hope for the best.

    NugHeuser Well-Known Member

    Yeah I've heard chem dog is one that will throw nanners everytime late in flower, period. I've never grown it but just read from somewhere on here of some people talking about it who have. So that's a good example of one, I'd have to agree with ya.

    Mcgician Well-Known Member

    I too can attest to the the fact that I've seen sacks on some the Vader OG lowers. I plucked em off and haven't seen any since. They've been on 12 n 12 since Oct 17th. That kind of thing has happened with numerous strains I've grown, not just from them, and after running one or 2 times from clone, most of those issues simply disappear. I have a keeper Tahoe Alien pheno I've been running for years that started that way and it's been stable for years now.

    have a malibu flexing right now. wicked structure, almost at 21 days. stacking like a champ, and the ice she's producing at 2.5 weeks is incredible.
    pics later.
    no nuts as of yet.

    NugHeuser Well-Known Member

    Interested to see these pics. I've got some malibu pies on day 3 of flip.
    And yeah I agree on the structure. They are actually bushier than my alien rifts.

    I had a few nanners on my ninja fruit run, but didn't see any seeds when I harvested. No big deal. I don't really get why people get so freaked out over a couple of nanners.

    I have 2 in flower about 13 days in. I’ll post some pics when lights comes on. What flavor are you getting outta yours?
