When learning how to grow cannabis, one of the most important things that you need to understand about how cannabis plants grow is that the amount of actual marijuana that you end up with depends largely on the type of plant that you grow, as well as how fast you grow it. It is common for most indoor gardeners to end up with lots of buds, but they are rarely big enough to be worthwhile, nor do they provide any substantial benefit as far as eating is concerned. On the other hand, you could get lots of buds and end up with a nice crop of potable cannabis that you can smoke, or use for various other purposes. Either way, the key is to get regular, consistent, and large-flowering seedlings.
So what kinds of “regular” seeds are out there? Well, there is the “heterosexual”, which refers to Hindu (Indian) strains, including Indian Singh, Jaspreet, Punjab and the like. The ratio for female-to-male growth with these seeds is about 1-to-2 (about 66% male). When you begin to grow, however, it is best to assume that at least 50% of your seeds will be female. You can germinate some extra female plants to make up for the males that you eventually discard later, on account of their smaller sizes.
Female plants that have been sown also tend to produce more and healthier buds. But even if you don’t get seeds from your female plant, you can still get feminized seed. In fact, the best way to get feminized seeds is to buy them from a reputable dealer. Male plants are rarely feminized, because the process is very complicated, involving cross-feeding from one sex to another in order to encourage the growth of the desired gender. All feminized plants have one set of chromosomes from a single parent. Cross-feeding just means that the plants take the same genes from one parent and use them to produce more offspring.
Some common types of feminized weed seeds are described below. These include African Wild Bill, Black Diesel, Black Heirloom, Black Jack, Black Peony, Chinese Beard, English Ivy, Gold Finches, Green Anemone, Hawaiian Papuana, Lemon Grass, Meconopsis, Mesmeric Grass and Native Americans. In general, the process of cross-feeding takes place when a plant is under high stress, such as a disease or flood. When disease or flooding kills a plant, it is not unusual for the surviving flowers to also become feminized because they are genetically programmed to grow better when the other plant is sick. This process of “natural breeding” is highly desirable among gardeners because it means that feminized plants do not require any special care and can sometimes outperform regular seeds.
One of the easiest and most popular methods of cross-breeding is to plant two different flowering plants of different species together in pots and allow them to flower in the spring. For example, plant two different African Violets in small pots each with one flower. You can then keep them in the same pot and just change the pot every two or three weeks to enable each plant to flower for a period of ten weeks. This allows you to grow two fully-grown plants of equal quality and one in the case of autoflowering seeds, and four or more perennials in a small pot.
If you have some knowledge of how marijuana plants grow naturally, then you can skip making the journey to a feminizer. However, even if you don’t have a lot of experience, you can still feminize your plants without the assistance of a technician by following a few simple steps. If you wish to start with feminizing plants that are close to full maturity, then you will need to collect a large number of seeds. It is best to collect as many seeds from a variety of sources so that there is a good chance that some of them will germinate and begin to grow. The best way to identify which seeds will start to grow is to keep watching them carefully. A common sign that a seed will grow and flourish is that it starts to appear bushy.
Once you have collected enough seeds, it is time to place them in trays, which are useful for ensuring that they are protected from air. You can then place them in a dark place such as a cupboard or a toilet cabinet. When it comes to germination, you should not expose them to direct sunlight. Instead, opt for areas in your home that are well ventilated; you should also avoid using heating devices and make sure that you give your plants regular watering.
Feminized seeds are a great way to get started growing marijuana. There are several advantages, however, such as the fact that they are healthier and yield better results. If you are considering this option, it is important to take into account what you would prefer when it comes to the final result. Some prefer regular seeds because they grow faster; while others prefer to use feminized seeds so that they have full control over the amount of pollen that they ingest.
