defo a hermie my friend, and yes you can make seeds from a hermie, but they will more than likely produce more hermies. throw it away.

Lovely that its a hermie, but how do you feminize seeds without a hermie??

I'm not positive but the way i understand it is that to breed feminised seeds you need to use females that are extremely resistant to turning hermaphrodite.
You don't want to pass on the hermaphrodite trait so the plants are stressed in various ways and any that hermie are removed.
Then remaining plants are treated chemically to produce male pollen which can be used to breed fem seeds.

I'm pretty sure that planting seeds from a normal hermied plant will just pass on the hermaphrodite trait and leave you with a garden full of hermies and seeded buds. Best to remove it before it pollinates any girls you already have in there.

Could it be like this :
 

1. after one week of growth take one(1) plant and interupt it's growth cycle like this...12on-5off-1on-6off-12on..use a seperate grow room..
2. do this for one week...this will create a hermie(this plant will have both parts but will still only have XX chromosomes)
3. now take another plant and set it by the hermie for a couple weeks
4. dispose of the hermie because it has a sex ratio of 25%male, 25%hermie, and 50% female(no gain in percentage then from natural breeding
5. the loner plant will produce 95%female and 5% hermie/male....
6. the lone plant produces only fem seed because the hermie only gave the loner an
X chromosome...while the loner could only give an X...so your left with XX=female

But one parent had a tendency toward hermaphroditism so chances are that the 'fem' seeds you create will also have the hermaphrodite trait

If you want guaranteed females you're better off using clones imo, or if you want to breed seeds then breed normally and just pick out the males

If you have trouble cloning i'd recommend using a bubble cloner, there's a great guide to making one in these forums somewhere.
Since i started using one about a year ago i've had 100% success rate :)
