How you can change a female marijuana plant to become a hermaphroditeBut when a female plant is under stress, or when it’s in the wild with no male pollen around, it can become a hermaphrodite. That means a female plant that also has male “body parts”. It fertilizes itself and the seeds of its offspring will be feminized. Many of these seed will grow to be female plants with a higher likelihood to become hermaphrodite, even in a low stress environment. In a controlled environment, hermaphrodite can be created on purpose stressing the plant. For example, you can stress a female cannabis plant by changing it’s lighting cycle indoors. Temperature, water and even physical stress to the plant a couple other examples of how you can change a female marijuana plant to become a hermaphrodite.

The two main chemical methods for creating feminized seeds are:• Colloidal silver. Spraying female plants with a colloidal silver solution when they start to flower. The plant will grow balls full of female pollen. This allows you to collect the pollen to use to pollinate other female plants. This means all your seeds will be female without a male in sight.• Rodelisation. Rodelisation relies on the female trying to self-pollinate at the end of her cycle. She does this when she does not receive pollen during her cycle. The resulting seeds will all be female.
