Recently harvested my first time trying auto flowering seeds. to my surprise I have noticed a few seeds. is this a common thing for autoflower strains? Also are these seeds auto flowering? there were no males anywhere whatsoever so not sure how they got pollenated unless it pollenated itself. I didn't notice any herme tendencies either.

I was just doing some research on this exact topic. Every plant is different and some are more prone to herme then others. I learned that seeds from a female hermaphrodite are feminized seed, because no male DNA was introduced. And in your case will be auto-flower. I have also been informed that seeds from a hermaphrodite female may have a genetic tendency to herme themselves.

Ive grown a few Autos and never been Lucky enough to find a seed.
Sometimes when buds are at the end of the cycle they Self Shag and produce feminized seeds. If I were you Id take care of those and grow some more autos. :thumb:

Herm's are different than late harvest nanners. Its hard to miss a herm, what with the male flowers and all. But nanners are sneaky and ninja like. Especially on light green foliage.

Didn't see any nanners but anyways going to grow them and see what happens. The strains were short ryder and bubblicious. the bud is decent and I got a fairly decent yield considering my barbaric set up
