Swollen Calyx Or Seeds?

    Okay, I’ve seen a bunch of threads asking the same question, but I really can’t tell if these are just swollen or if they’re gonna have seeds in ’em. The plant is an OG Kush auto, day 34 since it started to show pistils. I’ve not seen a single nanner on her, although there was another plant in the tent that had gone hermie on me. But I thought I got it out of there before it had a chance to pollinate anything.

    Those look like seeds, but to me, Calyxes stuffed with a seed or the fake parts always look the same to me. Only one way to find out. Manhandle that mother lover, and make sure. You can pinch one with your fingers, or a toothpick to see if there is resistance, or something hard inside.

    If they aren’t seeds, its bad if all of the buds look like that. The plant is confused.

    Just my two cents!

    I’m thinkin’ they’re probably seeds too. If they are, then I’ll have a crapload of free OG Kush auto seeds for the future. Gotta look at the bright side, right?

    I’ll go take one off right now and look inside.

    Help I’m in a similar boat but only one plant is showing swollen calnyx’s and pretty much just the ones at the nodes, they’re turning purple as well. Not sure I have thoroughly checked and can’t see a banana anywhere (some things that could be at the very tips but to immature to have pollinated. She’s not getting denser either and I’m hoping it had more to do with when I treated the budrot cos I’d have expected to see atleast 1 other plant out of 6 to show atleast one site that got pollinated as well because I have an aircon plus 4 fans in the room. I cut one or 2 open but no others are showing any signs of something being wrong. Her pistills turned brown as well but that happened like during the dark after I sprayed her and lights on they were brown. So I’m assuming I just did her some harm when I killed the fungus (I used freebase nicotine in a non polar solvent solution at concentration of 10mg/ml (0.01g – 1g I believe that’s 1% the non polar solvent meaning methanol. Before you ask there is heaps of research on nicotine as a pesticide and selective fungicide plus most ppl here mix with tobacco anyway plus all ingredients we’re of pharmacutical grade and I don’t think the vegetable glycerin hurt her unless it intensified the light as it leaves a tiny coating for bout 2 weeks)

    some did have a tiny grain inside but so tiny I couldn’t tell what it was. Should the calnyx’s be completely hollow?
    How small would a seed that turned brown be? Cos I found one brown thing bit bigger than a grain of sand but in comparison to the calnyx and photos above seems unlikely?
    Also I haven’t found any swollen calnyx’s within the buds and even the buds I suspect are still producing new pistills?

    Can add photos if needed

    Sorry for the long post just wanted to make sure any reluctant info was given hope someone can help!
