Why Grow Autoflowering Seeds?
Regular seeds have endless possibilities for cultivators to experiment with. In the beginning, the European cannabis crop was actually a regular seed. Today, many use the term regular cannabis seeds to separate the original ones from feminized or autoflowering cannabis crops. But, even though genetics are the starting point in experimenting with marijuana plants, many also enjoy experimenting with their favorite strains using marijuana gardening techniques that combine conventional growing practices with unconventional methods of growing the plants.
The regular seeds used to produce high-end cannabis are called Regular Seed, because they are bred with the same physical traits as regular seeds and are therefore regularly produced by farmers and cultivators. However, they are commonly supplemented with estrogen in order to trigger the natural growing process. Some growers also use other hormones in order to encourage the growth of another set of regular seeds known as feminized. Feminized seeds are also known as feminized cannabis. Both sets of regular seeds can be used, but they are separated primarily based on the method of growth and environment.
Growing Regular Seed versus Feminized Seed Many consumers who are interested in growing cannabis are more interested in the process of how the plants grow rather than which set they grow under. feminized seeds, due to their nature, have a faster growth rate when compared to regular seeds, but they do require two full growing seasons to mature. This may not be an issue to many consumers, but if one is looking to keep plants for the long haul, then growing regular cannabis plants is more ideal.
Feminized cannabis plants are normally fed all the nutrients that normal cannabis plant needs. This includes the use of additional soil as well as additional amounts of supplemental food. All this food is passed on to the male plant through the female plant’s stem system. After the male plants have finished eating the additional food, they exit the male plant and resume life in the soil where they originally came from. The amount of time it takes for the female plant to fully recover depends greatly on the amount of time it takes to grow a regular seedling.
In general feminized plants are not as resilient as regular seedlings. In some cases, this can be because of the lack of support and nourishment that the plants receive. Some growers who breed and re-breed these plants tend to use stronger and harder seeds than most other growers do, so feminized plants can sometimes become less resilient over the years.
Growers tend to opt for regular cannabis seeds for their feminized crops. There are several reasons for this, most notably the fact that regular seeds tend to be less expensive than feminized seeds. Additionally, regular seeds do not require a great deal of upkeep. They simply come in a head-space when you plant your crop, making them easy for you to work with.
Another reason that many growers choose to use autoflowering seeds is because of the care that they need to put into the care and growth of their cannabis crops. Unlike regular seeds, autoflowering seeds do not require that a gardener remove any excess dirt or residue from the top of the plant. This makes it easier for the grower to manage the type of soil he/she has. Additionally, autoflowering seeds are able to provide the gardener with more nutrients and water than regular seeds, meaning that an autoflowering cannabis seedling will actually grow much better than it would if it were to grow using regular seedlings.
The majority of women growing cannabis are seeking a way to have the best quality and most fragrant plants possible. For this reason, women who are interested in growing cannabis often choose to use feminized plants. These plants are ones that have been specifically feminized through a process that involves taking male and female plants apart and then implanting the feminized seeds into the female plants. After a few days, the feminized plants will begin to sprout and the result will be a plant that has a large number of female flowers, produces little male flowers, and will also grow tall instead of wide.
