    Have you got pictures of the bits youíre plucking off the plant. You sure they are pollen sacks and not swollen calxys 😃🇬🇧

    Definitely bananas you have growing there nkbongs . How long do you have left in flower ? If I was you Iíd just keep removing them as diligently as possible. Donít let them open and remove them and bin them. If you use a pair of tweezers slightly wet the ends as you pluck them helping to reduce as spread of pollen. What strain and breeder are the seeds from?

    More than likely the light leaks you had in veg has caused the stress which in turn has made her produce the bananas. Iím sure it takes around four weeks for a seed to be fully mature after pollination. So just be as diligent as possible removing them and you should be fine but still with the possibility of finding the obvious seed . Remember to remove and bin as you donít want them drying out and opening within the room after you have picked them off .

    Sorry to see that you are plagued with nanners. I am curious to see how this works out if you keep plucking and take it to the end. They say these are caused by stress but in my 5 years growing I have never see one myself. I tend to be very rough in plant training and this is never a problem for me. This makes me wonder if it is only certain types of stress that will cause a plant to hermie? Good luck!

    Mainly light leaks cause issues like this but low stress training almost guarantees this wonít happen. Remembering that this is also built into the dna of the plant as a last ditch attempt of self preservation and right at least he end of life its natural for her too try self pollination for survival 😃🇬🇧

    Thanks BG. Good to know. This explains why I never see em. I use a sheet over the closet door to make sure it stays real dark. Even taped up the blue, red and green led's from the electronics even though they might be safe.
