In nature, the cannabis plant consists of two main species, sativa and indica, which are both diuretic, meaning they excrete excess water. The plants are self-fertile or can reproduce without the help of a mate. In short, they are drought-tolerant.
As such regular seeds are typically very dry, because their seeds do not mature until after they have germinated, which takes place within the flowers. Regular seeds produce male plants only, where the grower doesn’t have much control over their sexual orientation.
In contrast, marijuana plants have anther sex, or male plants, which are produced with help from regular seeds and that grow freely in a marijuana garden. While both types of plants grow and reproduce by seed, one type of plant produces regular seeds while the other produces regular seedlings.
Advantages of regular seeds. One obvious advantage is that, although they are extremely dry, regular seeds make for excellent starters, because they have plenty of room to grow and spread. For example, many grow their seeds directly into a pot from seed trays, which give them room to grow and spread. Another advantage is that regular seeds can be planted right into soil without having to use much water or fertilizer. Finally, regular seeds, as their name suggests, reproduce freely.
On the flip side, disadvantages of regular seedlings include their low yield potential, their lack of flavor and color, and their ability to become an irritant if they are grown near or on flowers that are pollinating. Because they reproduce so easily, these seeds, when grown together with flowers, create hybrid flowers, in which a number of different flowers are mated together. However, the resulting hybrid flowers often have fewer qualities than either or the original flowers, so it is important to carefully select the flowers you want to use. In addition, since most regular seeds have little or no flavor or color, they are not suitable for cooking or baking purposes.
On the other hand, advantages of regular seedlings include their increased yield potential compared to the regular seedling variety, and the fact that they are generally easier to grow, require less fertilizer, require less water and need less attention than regular seedlings. There is also some evidence that regular seeds have a lot of beneficial nutritional value. and that they contain enzymes that can help boost the immune system. In addition, they are known for containing phytosterols and proanthocyanins, which are thought to be powerful antioxidants. This substance has been shown to stimulate healthy cholesterol levels, and may help reduce risk factors for heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure and stroke.
Disadvantages of regular seeds also include their tendency to produce hybrid flowers, which are often smaller than the original flowers. Their ability to produce hybrid flowers is also often limited. It’s important to understand that when growing cannabis plants you should try to use marijuana flower seeds, which are of the same sex and are of the same size and same type. Many seed manufacturers offer different varieties, but the result will be different, so that’s a good reason to choose seeds from a reputable grower.
No matter which type of seeds you choose, regular seedlings will produce great results, though their disadvantages may outweigh their advantages, as long as you choose strains that are well suited to your growing conditions and environment. With a little practice, they’ll help you harvest much larger harvests and have a better chance of achieving a high yielding marijuana harvest.
If you grow without seeds and don’t use seeds for replanting your plants will develop their own foliage. In addition, if you plant your plants too close together, there isn’t enough room for air circulation and nutrients can accumulate, so plants will grow slowly and become brittle and susceptible to frost, freeze, drought and insects.
The best time to plant is during late summer, because in this season it is cooler and drier. Don’t plant your seeds until the last day of June, because this will ensure that the roots are not damaged by high temperatures. and that all the moisture has evaporated. You also want to make sure that the soil is very moist, because roots require water to grow and thrive.
Regular seedlings will also benefit from some general garden care, such as mulching to prevent root rot, fertilizing twice a year, watering to keep the soil rich in nutrients and drainage to keep the soil from draining out. Don’t forget to remove any weeds in the garden at this time and be careful not to over-fertilize the plants, since weed growth can make your marijuana plants more susceptible to diseases and pests.
