Unsure of hops...

Post by Doc_Drive » 3 years ago

Hey all...

I'm not sure whether my hops has been pollinated... I can see quite a bit of the yellow lupulin but there is also some small "nodules" in the hops and when I just chew on that it kind of tastes sweet...

I haven't seen a male hops plant around anywhere here though...

Is your plant stressed at all? Hops plants can hermie if under stress. That'll make your plant show either both sexes or down right switch from female to male...
