    I have a northern lights plant that is about 5 months old growing in DWC. Being the crazy addict that I am, I ended up cutting off everything with trichomes before she finished flowering. At that point I switched back to 24 hour light and vegging nutes. It's been about 3 weeks now, and I'm happy to see alot of new growth at the bottom of the plant.

    Anyway, I know plants can be turned into a hermie when their light cycle gets messed up. What are the chances that I've turned this plant into a hermie, and how do I tell?

    you'll get male flowers, & its more likely that the stress will turn it hermie, (being not just the light cycle but the cutting & shit aswel). just keep your eyes open for male flowers

    It takes alot of stress ussually.But some gene's are more stable then others.

    How bad would it be if it does turn out to be a hermie? Could I just cut off the male flowers to keep it from pollinating anything? Or will the buds be smaller and/or less potent?
