Regular seed has many more advantages than Indica or hybrid seeds for growing cannabis. Regular seeds have endless possibilities for growers to explore. At first, in Sensi Seeds, an indica-like seed was simply a regular seed. But now, use the word regular seed to distinguish the originalinas from feminized cannabis and autoflowering cannabis. Modern cannabis growers commonly use hybrid varieties to produce high-quality indoor cannabis.
Some people consider feminized seeds as regular seed but are misleading because feminized seeds are actually crossed with indicas or hybrid plants. The result is a hybrid between two plant types but with very little in common with either type. Hybrid marijuana often contains only a small percentage of indica and contains high levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) that makes it a very potent and powerful drug. Autoflowering cannabis often contains very high levels of THC that make it highly addictive.
There is a large selection of flowering time for cannabis. Some flowers are produced during the morning and afternoon and others bloom during the evening hours. All cannabis seeds are in the bud stage of growth just before the flower buds open up in the evening. The early morning and afternoon buds are usually harvested or dried while the evening buds are allowed to bloom longer and produce larger and stronger buds.
Two popular strains are Sativa and White Widow. Sativa is thought to be the most powerful strain because it produces large, sturdy plants. White Widow produces compact, short plants with dark green foliage. Both Sativa and White Womens have been bred and crossed to create the famous strains; the Finder and Skunk, respectively; although they are both considered Indica.
There are hybrid seeds available as well, but most are used for breeding purposes. Some of these plants are considered Indica Regular, Heavy Flower, Longship and Stem Plant. Hybrid seeds, that are created from plants with the characteristics of one of the above varieties, can also be used for breeding purposes. The majority of these regular varieties of cannabis seeds are feminized ones.
Feminized cannabis seeds are created by cross-pollination. When two plants are in full reproductive season, one plant is sowed, the other is taken out of the ground and the offspring are sown. When the plant starts to reproduce after the first harvest, the pollen is inserted into the next plant through the roots. This ensures that each plant will produce a new generation of plants with the appropriate characteristics of each parent plant.
One of the most popular strains of cannabis seeds used for breeding is the F1 hybrid. The F1 produces the same characteristics of the regular cannabis seed except it has one extra copy of chromosome number one inserted into it. The F1 plant contains no homozygous dominant gene, just a non-homozygous dominant gene. All of its offspring are also plant homozygous for the F1 gene. If two plants bearing the same homozygous trait produce berries, then all of their offspring will have a characteristic of the F1 breed. Any of the offspring may possibly produce berries and all of them will also end up producing buds.
There are many sites online where you can purchase feminized seeds for cannabis. Many suppliers offer special breeding programs that allow you to select your own desired traits and create the perfect plants. You can find feminized seeds for indoor gardening, flowering, general plant growth and more.
Indoor gardens are easier to maintain with feminized seeds. Since these plants do not have to compete with other plants for nutrients and water, the result is healthier and more resilient plants. When you use regular seeds, you risk creating an environment that will make your plants more susceptible to disease and insect infestation. With hybrid seeds, you eliminate that possibility. Hybrid seeds will produce fully formed plants, which can even out the characteristics of your plants.
When you purchase feminized seeds, you are also purchasing fully developed plants. Regular seeds will be sprouted from seedlings, which means you will have to wait until they are established and growing before you can harvest the crop you want. This is why some people choose to start off with regular ones and then once they see their crops begin to come up, they move on to the feminized varieties. If you are not experienced with growing cannabis plants, then it is better to go with the hybrid variety. This way, you won’t lose interest as quickly because of having to wait for the plants to develop fully.
Growing cannabis has changed over the years because of different strains and hybrids. There are many excellent sources for quality Hindu Kush and Indoorumax varieties that will make growing them easy and productive. If you want to harvest your crop, then you won’t have to worry about getting the right amount of water or fertilizer. You can expect your plants to flower and produce fresh leaves and buds all throughout the flowering season.
