Selecting Autoflowering Seeds for Indoor Growing
When it comes to pot-ready cannabis, regular seed is the only thing that matters. Regular seed comes from one parent and one female parent, which makes it easy to tell whether the seed will produce a female or male plant later on. However, it’s almost impossible to tell whether a regular seed is going to be a male or a female by the time you reach the flowering stage. That’s why it’s safer to harvest seeds before they’re ready and choose carefully. Some cannabis experts even suggest that you should get seeds from your parents, but that might just make the task of getting them started that much more difficult. After all, with the right care, it’s still possible to get a regular seed that turns out to be the gender of your choice.
When you buy seeds, do so from a reputable supplier, especially if you want to take pot-ready cannabis to a higher level. The most popular way that people get started with autoflowering seeds is to buy from growers who specialize in them. They know what to look for, where to buy good stuff, how to get their autoflowering cannabis seeds to germinate and start growing, and so forth. Some of these growers have been growing cannabis for years and know what works, what doesn’t, and how to avoid pitfalls. If a grower has taken the time to establish himself or herself as a legitimate dealer, he or she will likely have taken care of any potential problems.
When it comes to regular cannabis seeds for females, there are three distinct groups: those that contain just one female plant; those that contain two females; and those that contain three or more females. This latter group tends to be the most successful, because with all of the plant’s flowers flowering at once, it’s often easier to control the amount of marijuana that is produced. And since flowering buds don’t stay small forever, even a large garden can contain lots of regular seedlings that are all producing big buds.
The first step toward starting your own home-based business grows out of the cultivation of the cannabis plant. Buy a high quality seed that is specifically bred for high yield, because that’s what you’re going to need. Some of these high-quality seeds are expensive, but it’s usually worth paying that bit extra to get the best results. You should have about 1.5 inches of room to space your plants. Keep the area in a dark, cool place, away from excessive heat or sunlight, which could hamper the process.
When choosing which feminized seeds to buy, be sure to check the growers website for customer reviews. This should be easy to do, since many reputed online retailers have detailed reviews on their sites. If a particular company has consistently good reviews, that’s a good sign that their products are popular among growers. After all, not everyone is going to grow the same types of plants, so it wouldn’t make any sense to buy regular seed from a company that didn’t have favorable reviews.
Once you have chosen which marijuana seeds to grow, you’ll need to purchase some potting soil and fertilizer. Many growers who are just getting into indoor growing will choose to skip the fertilizer and potting soil and choose to go straight to harvesting. While this is a perfectly viable option, it shouldn’t be done without careful planning. Just as with picking which plants to grow, there are different types of cannabis plants grown with different growing requirements.
Some plants grow more quickly than others. Some grow more fragranceier than others. Some buds bloom longer than others, and some produce more hearts in one bloom. Knowing the differences between these varieties is important when choosing which seeds to get.
The flowering period for each type of plant can take anywhere from three weeks to a few months. However, many experts recommend starting out with three weeks and then increasing the time between flowering every three weeks. You can also choose to feminize autoflowering seeds to help speed up the flowering process. When feminized, the plant will grow with the typical growing pattern, except it will grow two sets of flowers on each set of leaves. These two sets of blooms will be almost identical to each other in size and shape to help ensure uniform flowering.
