Creating Regular Seed to Medicate With
Regular seeds provide growers with endless possibilities for experimenting. When first starting out Sensi Seeds and thus the worldwide seed market, a seed was simply a seed. Today, many use the term regular seeds to separate the original and feminized seeds from autoflowering and hybrid cannabis seeds. The modern day hybrid marijuana seed is often referred to as regular because it is basically identical to its counterparts. Modern hybrids are more often used for outdoor growing rather than indoor growing.
Strain selection is important in growing cannabis plants. Most seeds are treated similar to black light variety cannabis plants in that they are exposed to a high level of light. The biggest difference between regular and strain selection is the length and duration of the lighting exposure. Light duration refers to how long a marijuana plant is exposed to light during the growing period. If the light duration is too short, the plant will not grow properly and if the light duration is too long, it can cause stress to the plant.
There are many ways to select regular seeds, but let’s start with indoor gardening. You will need to start with feminized or Autoflower cannabis plants if you are planning to produce feminized buds or plants. Autoflowering cannabis plants are normally bred by crossing autoflower plants with feminized marijuana plants. Since feminized plants are already genetically predisposed to flowering, breeding them again only weakens the plant and reduces its likelihood of flowering fully.
Autoflower plants have female flowers and male plants. Male plants will produce pollen while the female plants will produce seed. The female plants that produce seeds will be bigger in size and will also be more fragrant when planted outdoors than their regular seed counterparts. The biggest problem with breeding feminized seeds is finding a source of feminized seeds that don’t have any female plants in the group. Typically, breeders will buy female plants at a nursery, process them and then put them together in a bun.
There is another method of creating regular seedlings and that is through the creation of clones. Clones are actually genetically identical plants that have been created by mating one male with a female flower in a petri dish. When the temperature and moisture conditions are right, the pollen will lodge on the petri dish and this will become a clone. Most seed companies will offer cloned plants or cuttings at a reasonable price. clones are, of course, subject to their own set of challenges and there is a higher risk of producing large numbers of clones that will fail to flower.
Some of the companies that breed regular cannabis seeds will also offer hybrid varieties of the breed that can be crossbred. This allows for the creation of new strains of cannabis that have characteristics of both feminized and regular seeds. These will often be sold at a premium over the regular seeds as each new variety will have a limited amount of space to grow. Hybrid varieties can be a great way to get started with your own breeding.
One thing to keep in mind when considering hybrid cannabis is that the traits of the regular cannabis seeds that are used may be missed by the breeders. Because many of the growers of hybrid seeds do not have a lot of experience with growing cannabis, they can make mistakes when breeding the crops. Therefore, it is important for you to select a company that has experience in the breeding of regular seeds so that you can be sure that the plants you are purchasing are consistent.
Creating regular cannabis seeds using the genetics you have available to you is a simple process that is easy to do with the assistance of some of the companies that breed these types of flowers. The genetics you use will depend upon your location, the climate and the soil in your region. There are many out there waiting for you and they are ready to be bred into a strain of cannabis with the traits of your choice. Creating your own hybrid strain can take a lot of research, but it can also be a very rewarding experience.
