Marijuana Genetics – How to Create a Power Plant
What are regular seed packets? For many people who grow their own cannabis, seeds are what they call “regular plants”. The term “regular plants” may be used in two different contexts: plants that have not been crossed (i.e., plants that haven’t had another plant other than the one that is being cross-bred); and plants that are bred specifically for growing tall. What are marijuana regular seed packets? Marijuana regular seed packets are used to describe plants that have had marijuana grown on them (i.e., marijuana plants) and then cross-bred with other common plants to create new hybrid varieties that are unlikely to have any resemblance to the parents plant in either sex.
So, what are regular seeds? Marijuana regular seeds are autoflowering seeds (i.e., plants that do not grow taller). When autoflowering seeds are used to grow taller plants, feminized seeds or “crossbreeding” is necessary. Autoflowering seeds are created by crossing a common herb with its calcareous counterpart and “spinning” the resulting product. The herbs, such as marijuana, rose, aloe, and chives, which are commonly feminized through crossbreeding, will grow taller than other common, non Feminized herbs. This is why autoflowering seeds are often used as seed starters for indoor growing.
How are regular seeds different from feminized seeds? feminization occurs when the male flowers on the female cannabis plant. When this process occurs the male flowers take on characteristics of the female flower. For instance, male flowers will grow up stork-like, have male foliage, and will grow in a specific order. These traits are typically different from the female flowers, however, and are only present when the plants are crossbred in this manner.
What does it mean when hybrid cannabis seeds are referred to as “hybrid?” In simple terms hybrid seeds are those that produce two distinctly different characteristics from one or more traditional species of cannabis. Two of these types of plants are referred to as true hybrid strains. They can appear to be very close in appearance to the parents of that particular variety, and may actually have some of the characteristics of each parent plant. True hybrid strains can also show features of both parents of the hybrid. Hybrids are a way for breeders to increase the number of cannabis strains available.
What makes a “fan leaf” different from a normal seed? A fan leaf starts out as a normal seed, but because it matures faster grows into a more compact form. As the plant produces more leaves and starts to form a fan shape, new seeds are released and the pattern continues. Some fan leaves also produce flowers and seeds at the same time.
The nutrients and elements necessary for marijuana seeds to germinate can be contained in a feminised seed. These seeds are made with some of the male plants material removed. Any residual material is then left in the female plants reproductive system to aid in germination. Because all nutrients and elements are contained in the feminised seeds, the plant will develop the same qualities of nutrients needed to grow.
The production of super sensi seeds is often used in hydroponic gardening. These types of strains are made to produce a specific type of flower. There are several different hybrid strains that can be found for gardening purposes, the desired characteristics of which are determined by the gardener.
Hybrid cannabis genetics are an important part of indoor and outdoor crop production today. Hybrid strains have created many new possibilities for growers. Many growers are discovering that there is a large assortment of choices in the marketplace when it comes to producing crops that are highly productive and desirable. When searching through the selections available, it is important to consider your goals, as well as how you plan on using the product.
