Regular seed marijuana plants may be your regular seed marijuana plant; but they provide gardeners a slew of potential options for experimentation. In short, the reason they’re called regular seeds isn’t so much because they were genetically modified to cause a faster or different growing process than it naturally does; but because they act like nature intended. That’s right – plants grow best when they’re getting what they need, and in this case, that means food. And there are a few ways to get it.
Indica versus Sativa: The key to indoor growing (and growing indoor plants for that matter) is getting the proper ratio of moisture, nutrients and space. Both Indicas and Sativas have their advantages and disadvantages. Sativa, or “HC” plants, can take longer to flower compared to Indicas. And Indicas can actually provide a higher yield after flowering compared to some other flowering plants. This is because Indicas have a greater gene pool, which means that they’re able to produce more seeds at one time.
But these benefits also mean that Indicas are harder to find, resulting in more competition and a better chance for a successful harvest. Which leads us to our next consideration: strain. When it comes to buying cannabis seeds, most retailers only carry a select few strains. Many people simply pick the favorite strain – whatever it happens to be.
And this leads to another problem. Most indoor growers only use a handful of strains. While some do well outdoors, most are frustrated by their inability to control their plants’ flowering period and get that amazing outdoor crop. This can severely limit their options for growing good-quality cannabis.
Fortunately, the best way to avoid getting stoned and having a hard time getting that perfect harvest is by avoiding those regular cannabis seeds that are typically available from seed stores. Regular seed selection allows you to know what characteristics your plants have and helps you create the best growing environment to ensure a strong harvest. So how do you know which Indica strains are best? Here are three tips:
White Wister Wrinkle cannabis seeds are highly resistant to insects, fungus, mold and mildew. This makes them ideal for indoor growing. Resistance to fungal attacks means that you won’t have to worry about losing all your beautiful flowers in your quest to control the environment inside your home. Resistance to mold and mildew also means that you won’t have to worry about harmful pesticides harming your plants, and that means better soil biology throughout the grow cycle. While all these things may sound too much to look forward to, there are still several indoor growers who swear by white widow and other resistance traits.
Hybridizers are the new wave of feminized cannabis seeds. These are exactly as they sound-they are hybrid strains that contain traits of both Indica and Sativa. When cross bred with traditional breeding techniques, feminized ones can produce high quality, noticeable differences between the plants. With the right care, these plants can have all the gorgeous colors and elegant shapes of their regular seeds and still be able to produce big yields per plant. Some growers believe that hybridizers can produce better crops because they don’t need as much light to grow. This is another reason why they are so popular with indoor growers.
Another great benefit of using feminized seeds is the yield difference between autoflowering seeds and regular seedlings. Since they contain only feminized characteristics, autoflowering seeds can produce high-quality harvests that surpass the yield of their regular seed counterparts. This doesn’t mean that these plants will always produce twice the yield of regular cannabis plants; just that their characteristics are such that they can do so much better. With a little care, you can be sure that your plants will reward you with bountiful harvests all season long.
