How to Identify Hybrids
If you want to know how to grow potable marijuana, you have to understand the differences between Sativa and Indica. Sativa seeds are only produced when a female cannabis plant mates them with a male cannabis plant. To cultivate your own Sativa seeds, you need a male cannabis plant, and the females that produce the seeds as well. There’s a big difference between these two, but it its well worth it to invest the extra cash to ensure you’re working with feminized seeds – so you don’t waste your resources on “only” feminized crops!
So, what are the differences between Indica and Sativa? The most noticeable difference in the nature of the plants is in the type of floral output. When it comes to producing large amounts of buds, Indica tends to do better than Sativa. This is because Indica strains produce more robust flowers, and tend to be more resilient to stress. In order to get high yields from Indicas, you have to keep your plants under control all the time, increasing the frequency and the amount of time they spend outdoors.
The flowering stretch tends to be more uniform between indica and sativa strains. The reason behind this is simply that the flowering stretch tends to be a trait of all three types of cannabis. Indica strains are known for being the best for uniform flowering, so in many situations, if all three types of cannabis are used, the result will always be the same – the flowers will look similar.
However, this isn’t the case everywhere. Some plants have very fast growth and have high germination rates. This means that even though their flowering period is short, they can still outlast their rivals. It’s these kinds of plant that should be taken into account when choosing between different cannabis varieties.
Some plants have shorter flowering stems and leaves. This makes them perfect for indoor growing. They also have fewer flowers to be found. Bushy strains tend to have bushier stems and leaves, and can sometimes reach a height of eight feet or more. These types of plants are ideal for indoor gardens, because of their ability to thrive in a small space without the need to overcrowd your garden.
But which of the three characteristics applies to your situation? You should first consider whether your garden is going to be crowded. Bushier, feminized seeds are typically better at coping with a low density environment. If your plants are not going to be constantly exposed to strong light, then you don’t need to choose a faster growing breed. feminized seeds tend to flower later in the season, so if you are concerned about limited flowering, go with a slower-flowering strain.
Bushy varieties also have better soil qualities. In particular, indicas, begonias, and somniferums are able to flourish in poor soils. Indoor gardens can benefit from a high quality soil, as they tend to grow quickly and often flower in large numbers. However, if you have a space that can support some of these plants, they might not be right for you.
Finally, it’s important to take a look at the variety of the plant. If you’re looking for an indoor herb, then the type of flowers is an important factor. For example, a full-flowering sativa would probably better fit a kitchen garden than a culinary one. Some full-flowering sativa strains even flower late in the season, producing small, purple flowers. Some of the most popular indoor sativa varieties include Apollo, Cheese, Chamomile, Hops, Lemon Grass, Lemon Balm, Neroli, Pear, Royal Hellebore, St. Augustine, Shasta Gold, Sweet Cicely, and more.
