Seed pods everywere

Well today I was looking at my plants, and the big one has seeds everywere. It has been flowering for about 2 monts now, under a 400 hps. Well when I checked it, they were everywere. Can I just pull them off? Should I just leave it?

It’s my biggest plant, looks very healty, but is right next to my other plant. I don’t wan’t to chop her, but I don’t want this to happen again.

I live in Cal. so I have the clinics. Is it not good to get plants from them?

Thanks for your time.

The thread title said seed pods everywhere. Every female plant has seed pods. A little known cannabis fact is that each individual seed pod is a cannabis flower. Entire buds are not actually flowers, as in individual flowers, but instead clusters of many tiny flowers, the individual seed pods/flowers that grow together and create buds. Each seed pod/flower will ‘plump up’ and appear to have seeds in them when they near maturity. They will give an appearance of having seeds inside, but not have seeds in them.

If your plant’s seed pods/flowers have seeds growing in them there are only several possible causes. Hermies, or a male or males that were not removed prior to releasing pollen or an outside source for pollen that is carried by wind or brought in by someone and then transferred by inside air currents resulting in pollination.

There are no immaculate conceptions in herb growing.

They are mostly red hairs now.

There are cressent shapes at base of stems, but none of them have seeds at all.

I have been doing some searching on this sight, and It seems some people have seeds in their buds, and some have obvious male characteristics, more near where branc meets. If I no signs of seeds at base, and no bananas, is it not a hermi?

I checked light and there were no cracks, but I am aving issues with heat. Sometimes I come ome and its like 90+degrees and 30 or less on humid. Is that the issue?

Thanks for the help guys

i have a lr2 that has pods but they don’t hang down, they are pointed up and i just noticed that the lower clumps of pods have white hairs coming out. i clipped an couple pods off and dried them, nothing inside. i was hoping it was a male so i could grow seeds. is this a hermie? it doesn’t look at all like the females i’ve grown. there are trichomes not many compared with past plants. will it produce pollen?? thanks

I had bananas show up a week or so ago and now budds are filled with pods, which have liquid in them. Am I in trouble?

Calyxes are seed pods, if they get pollenated they will grow seeds, if not they swell up with resin. Trichomes are the “crystals” that protect the leaves and calyxes from insects and fungal disease.

If you have fully mature seeds in your buds then you can pull them out or leave them it’s up to you. A few seeds won’t hurt anything as long as you don’t smoke them

So far, they are full of liquid, but there are so many, and look like seed. Budds are full of them. I also had the little bananas show up a couple of weeks ago, then the pods. I actually took down 2 plants today, and budds are full of these pods. I think I’m screwed.

Here are pics of mine. Looks like seed pods, but only liquid inside. Any Suggestions or comments? Thanks.

Seed Pod

A seed pod is exactly what it sounds like – a pod produced on a cannabis plant after fertilization that contains seeds. However, unlike with growing vegetables and fruit, seeds are undesirable when growing cannabis for consumption, and the presence of seed pods can mean mutation, or the presence of a male plant, rather than a female plant.

Maximum Yield Explains Seed Pod

In the world of cannabis, female plants produce flowers, which are what humans consume (buds). Under natural conditions, male and female plants would intermix, allowing fertilization to occur, and the pollen of the male to fertilize the flowers of the female, resulting in the development of seeds. Those seeds would then be dispersed to grow new plants elsewhere. In cultivation for consumption, this is not what you want. The presence of a seed pod can indicate that you have a male plant mixed in with your female plants.

When cultivating cannabis for consumption, only female plants are desired, as only female plants produce buds. Male plants do produce trace amounts of THC in their leaves, but this isn’t sufficient for consumption. The best way to tell if male plants are present is to check the shape of the flowers – male flowers look dramatically different to buds grown on a female flower.

All male plants should be removed prior to pollen development to ensure that they do not fertilize female plants. Buying from a reputable grower that creates feminized seeds is a good way to reduce the chance of inadvertently growing male plants.

However, the presence of seed pod does not automatically mean that a male plant is present. Female plants can mutate under growing stress and become hermaphrodites. These can then self-fertilize and create seed pods without the need for a natural male plant in the area.

How to Grow Weed in your AeroGarden

Miracle-Gro AeroGarden™ is an exciting hydroponic system. You can grow fresh herbs, lettuce, tomatoes, year-round, in the comfort of your home.

You may be wondering: Is it possible to grow weed in an AeroGarden? And is it worth it? The short answer is Yes.

In this guide, I’m going to show you everything you need to know to grow weed your AeroGarden™ successfully including the best practices, the material needed, and exclusive pro-tips by experimented growers.

The best part? It will pay for itself in only 2 or 3 grows in weed value!

Table of contents
1. The Best AeroGarden Models For Weed

At the time I wrote these lines, the available models are; Sprout, Harvest, Classic, Bounty, and Farm family. To grow weed successfully, you will need a garden with 24 inches of growing height capacity and a powerful grow light panel.

So here are the AeroGarden models I recommend:

The AeroGarden™ Classic 9 is one of the most powerful models. It comes with a 45-watt LED full spectrum growth light and a growing height extendable up to 24 inches.

The Classic 9 also includes a touch screen control panel that makes things very easy and fun to control!

Classic 9 Bounty model has been replaced recently by a new design and this one is now obsolete but still one of the best to grow weed.

The most recent AeroGarden Bounty comes with a 40-watt grow light. The Bounty Elite (WiFi and Alexa Compatible) comes with a 50-watt grow light and both have 24 inches of growing height capacity.

Finally, the bigger models available are the AeroGarden™ Farm family with 60W of dual LED power and 24 inches of growing height.

2. Weed strain and seed type for the AeroGarden

Since the maximum grow height is only 24 inches (when the LED panel is fully deployed), it’s crucial to choose a strain that will stay small and compact.

Some strains can grow big plants that are not suited for the AeroGarden small reservoir. The strains also determine the effects and medical attributes.

2.1 Cannabis seed types

Autoflowering seeds are perfect for beginners because they grow very quickly and stay smaller. Also, there’s no need to change the light cycle to induce the flowering stage, and you will get only female plants.

Some strains can take only 10 weeks from seed to harvest.

On the other hand, yields are usually smaller with autoflowering seeds and most have a lower THC percentage.

Feminized seeds are also great, they allow growers to apply training techniques that aren’t recommended for auto and they can be cloned.

You will have to change the light cycle from 18/6 to 12/12 to trigger the flowering phase. Increased darkness hours tell the plant the fall is coming and start creating buds.

Key takeaway: Feminized seeds give more control to the experienced grower while autoflower seeds grow faster and are suitable for beginner grower.

3. The shopping list

Now you have your AeroGarden™ and your seeds, you will need the material below, and the optional list will help to have more yield out of your grow.

3.1 Required
3.2 Optional products

Cannabis, like any other plants, needs calcium and magnesium.

Your tap water may have calcium and magnesium in small concentrations, but likely not enough.

If you’re using distilled water, you will need to add a Cal-Mag solution to your water as they are essential secondary nutrients for healthy plant growth.

Botanicare Hydroguard® is well known for their unique beneficial bacteria that help to increase root mass and health.

Pro-tip:

In my installation, I have added an external air pump with an air stone to make more bubbles in the root zone. This helps to prevent roots rot, and bring more oxygen to the roots.

The external pump also helps to reduce the usage of the AeroGarden™ built-in pump. The water temperature will stay low, and you will be able to keep an optimal temperature (between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit).

On the top of the AeroGarden reservoir, you will find two water/air ports with rubber plugs that you can remove.

They are the same size as the standard aquarium airline tubing. Just place the tubing inside one of them and put the air stone in the center of the bowl.

4. Nutrients and the importance of pH

Important: don’t use the provided plant food that comes with the AeroGarden™. This will not work, and you will lose your time and seeds.

See also  Is It Illegal To Bring Weed Seeds On A Plane

I use General Hydroponics Flora Series, and I always have great results with these nutrients. Some other popular alternatives are Advanced Nutrients and Botanicare.

Your AeroGarden™ Bounty holds approximately 4 liters of water. I pour this amount of water into a big stainless steel mixing bowl. Let the tap water sit for 24 hours to become chlorine-free or use distilled water.

Now it’s time to add nutrients to the water. Begin with half of the recommended dosage by the manufacturer.

If you’re using GH Flora Series, take a look at this fully-tested nutrient schedule.

4.1 pH control

The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. The pH of the AeroGarden™ solution should be between 5.5 and 6.5.

So I target 6, and I check with the pH pen tester every day and make the required adjustments with pH buffers (do not use pH up and pH down in the same solution).

In the vegetative phase, the pH tends to go higher, and in the flowering stage, it tends to go lower. Keeping the pH in the target zone is essential. Out of this zone, the cannabis plant may be unable to absorb some nutrients, and this leads to nutrient deficiencies.

If the pH fluctuates a lot or is out of control for a long time, your plant leaves will become distorted especially in the new growth areas.

This can be reverted, but the affected leaves will not return to normal appearance.

Key takeaway: pH problems can slow the growth of your cannabis plants and lower your yield.

4.2 Total dissolved solids (TDS) & parts per million (PPM)

Before pouring the solution into the AeroGarden’s bowl, you need to verify the concentration of nutrient in the solution with the TDS digital meter.

In the first weeks, the PPM should be around 400, and this amount increase as the marijuana plants grows. In the early flowering stage, the TDS could be around 1000+ PPM.

High nutrient concentration levels will not help the plant to grow faster and can lead to problems like nutrient burn.

5. AeroGarden setup to grow weed

Now the fun part! I assume you have already assembled your hydroponic system and you have transferred the solution to the AeroGarden reservoir.

Now let’s take a closer look at the control panel. First, set the clock, and if you’re in the quick plant menu, select the grow anything option.

5.1 Grow light settings

Select the sun icon, and follow the steps to configure the grow light. If you have autoflowering seeds, I recommend 20/4 light cycle. My settings are as follow; light open at 6:00 am, and close at 2:00 am.

For feminized seeds, I suggest 18/6 for the vegetative stage, then switch to 12/12 to trigger flowering stage.

5.2 AeroGarden™ Pump settings

Select the water icon, and then change settings. Follow the steps until you reach the pump on/off screen.

In the vegetative stage, I recommend setting the pump 30 minutes on, and 60 minutes off.

In the flowering stage, it’s better to give an oxygen boost in the water for the increasing root masse of your plants. So, if you don’t have an external pump, set the pump to 60 minutes on, and 30 minutes off.

If you have the external air pump with an air stone, keep in mind this one should run all the time from seed to harvest. You can configure the AeroGarden built-in pump 10 minutes on, and 60 minutes off when you run the external pump.

5.3 Nutrients settings

Finally, select the nutrients icon, and then settings. Set your nutrients cycle to 7 days. This is a simple reminder, and the AeroGarden™ will give you a warning every week to add nutrients and replace the water.

6. Seed germination

I strongly recommend growing only one or two plants at a time. Your marijuana plants will need an increased amount of space while growing and try to put more plants will decrease the yield.

Take two grow sponges and baskets, then place the seeds into the small holes. Be sure seeds are not falling too deep, (1/2” would be awesome). Cover the two pods with the provided transparent domes and put duct tape over the remaining pod holes.

From my experience, it could take anywhere from 2 to 4 days to see the first tiny sprout.
