marijuana false seed pods

If you can see a swollen calyx with the pistils showing, it has not been pollinated :aok:

This is a pollinated Calyx.


No, DOS, I’m in FF OC. But I keep a running log of when and what I feed, so I’ve got a few grows under my belt to compare it to. But the over-watering is somthing to factor in. I’m pretty brutal with that though–I wanna see them droopy and sad before I act as well as feeling light as a feather.

Don’t believe that 8 weeks crap–I took ’em out to 10 weeks and woulda gone longer but they started breaking down so badly. The smoke is awsome but I didn’t pull but -2z on the afflicted one and -3z from the other. They start off looking Indica but end up very Sativa. I’ve got 3 going now I didn’t lollipop and they’re nearly 5′ tall from the medium.

Do you have any idea what the genetics really are? I got them as a ride-along from The hype says they were a C cup winner the year that Super Silver Haze won but I can’t find squat about them anywhere.

I understand its a false pregnantcy, or thats what ive read.
my question is why and how to prevent it.
thanks for any help

any info on this subject would be great.

Its not actually a false seed pod per say.
Its an old term for a swollen calyx/pod that is so swollen that it appears to contain a seed but does not actually contain anything except resin.

Hers some text that probably explains it a lot better than i do and in more detail.

I can’t really find any good info on this question.
Ive have it happen to me and I wasnt happy,like most noobs I thought it went hermie.

my question is why does some plants show false seed pods and others plants grow to what I think is normal looking buds.
how to prevent?

I think you might be talking about the calyx, which is the main part of the female flower. When ripe, the calyx will swell up, and look as if a seed is growing inside. That is actually a good indicator of bud ripeness.

Question #3 :
Also if that is the case should I harvest this whole plant now and get it the hell out of there before that happens?

Question #1 :
Are these seeds I am seeing or are these what are commonly referred to as “False seed pods swelling with THC resin”??

Here are the pics:

Question #2 :
I have two other plants next to this one. I don’t see any similar signs on the other two. If these are seeds which I am seeing is there a danger of them pollinating my other plants and thus producing seeds on my other plants?

I’m am close to harvesting some plants. This plant has been flowering for 7 weeks. Its a bag seed. This is my first grow and I am close to harvesting for the first time. I am planning on harvesting buds at different stages of trichomes early middle and late. But anyways I was just about to pick some buds off this plant and I noticed that many of the buds that are lower down on the plant have what appear to look like seeds.

As I said this is my first grow. I must say how helpful and informative this website and its contributors have been whether from the vast amounts of information in the grow guides, or from the forums where I always get answers to whatever questions I have. I received great advice from everyone through out my entire grow whenever I had a question or a concern about my plants. Thank you very much !
