That's what I thought, but then she said she occasionally grows a male plant to get the seeds, so how does one know whether any particular seed will germinate into a male or female plant?

you just grow them out and see what they are.  If you want seeds put a flowering male with a flowering female , or pollinate them yourself.

How can you tell the male seeds from the female seeds?

female seeds are more round and look like a volcano under a scope,male seeds are flatter and missing the volcano looking end.

When you do that don't you run the risk of having a male plants pollinate the female plants?

i keep the male in another room and place it under a black construction paper.When i start to see yellow pollen on it i shake the plant over the paper and collect the pollen,keep in fridge.Then i just take a paint brush and pollinate a few selected flowers on a female plant.A few flowers is all you need to pollinate to get a bunch of seeds.

I don’t think this is accurate... I bet you are throwing away good seeds...luckily you grow your own seeds, so it doesn’t cost you anything. Just what I have been told...

Or produce feminized seeds by stressing females in flower to the point of the throwing male flowers to self pollinate.  Any seeds produced by the pollen will be feminized,  seeing that the male flower let was produced by female DNA and the pollen,  therefore any seeds produced from that will be female. Totally different than hermaphrodites

Usually the only reason people actually pollinate with males is to stabilize or introduce a new phenotype that is desired. Mostly just for breeding purposes

What is the difference between this and One that goes over to hermaphradite .  I had one plant last year that did something and gave seeds.  I had weeded out all males

mostly to save a crap load of money since seeds are 20.00 and up per seed.I do however make my own kinds to hopefully improve the flower.
