WHY DO MARIJUANA PLANTS HERMIE?
HEAT, LIGHT AND STRESS are the most common causes of a marijuana plant turning into a hermie.
Understand your light cycles before you start your grow. In particular, avoid interrupting the dark periods once your lady has started to flower. Marijuana plants need their beauty sleep.
Keep the temperature at a reasonable level, if it's too hot, you run a distinct chance of ending up with a hermie.
Remember your water temperature, you may love an ice-cold drink on a hot day, but marijuana plants definitely don't. If you think about it, in the wild, if temperatures are warm and water will be at least lukewarm too. So give your plants what they expect.
Don't leave your plants gasping, but don't drown them either. There are lots of tips and tricks for judging how much water your marijuana plants need. Pick one which works for you and use it.
Similar comments apply to food. Big plants have big appetites but if you overdo it, you're liable to wind up with a hermie.
If you get any suspicion that your plants are under attack from insects, mites or diseases, then you need to act quickly but be careful what you use to tackle the problem. Don't swap one issue for another by using a product which is actually poisonous to plants.
Handle your plants gently. Do all your staking and pruning and plant training during the stretch period and keep a light hand.
As soon as flowering starts, leave well alone.
Once your bud has matured, it's better to harvest it a bit too early than too late. This is because you may well just end up with seeds in your bud.
Left too long female plants will make one last attempt to repopulate.
