Feminized Marijuana Seeds – What You Need to Know Before Buying
Regular seed has always had more uses than just being marijuana’s ‘base’ plant. Even throughout the history of marijuana, regular seeds have been used as a source of marijuana, either through seed planting or stem cutting. As far back as the Early American Independence, regular seed was the preferred supply for pot-making. Back in the day, most crops were sold as supplies to local homesteaders, not for profit. And, back then, many marijuana growers were also considered farmers.
In fact, until modern times, seeds were the staple of the marijuana grower’s inventory. Regular seeds come with endless possibilities for cultivators to experiment with. From the very beginning, in Europe, and throughout the rest of the world, a regular seed was just a regular seed… until feminized ones were introduced. Now, use the word feminized to distinguish feminized cannabis seeds from regular ones and you’ll be on your way to a healthier and much more varied crop.
Growing requirements for most plants are the same, however, their growing requirements are very different when they are feminized. Since they cannot go into a dormant state like regular seeds can, they must go into a dormant mode while they develop. So, during this time, they are much more susceptible to diseases and insects, which can destroy even the most resistant plants. Many insects that attack feminized ones are actually deadly to regular seeds.
For this reason, when marijuana is growing, it should be kept under observation constantly. Any buds that are not producing flowers should be removed from the plant and trashed free of any excess oils. If the plant is not producing flowers, it will not produce buds. This is why it is so important to keep a close eye on your plants at all times. Harvest your plants at the correct time, not too soon before flowering is complete. This will ensure that your plant does not experience any problems or stress when it comes to growth.
Some growers tend to think that feminized seeds are all alike. However, this is simply untrue. Some feminized seeds may have a shorter growing period than regular seed due to a shorter window of opportunity for flowering. Also, some female plants may flower later in the year than regular seeds because of their shorter growing period.
If you choose to try breeding your feminized seeds, it is best to start with one type of plant and two kinds of buds. This will allow you to eliminate cross-contamination between the two types of buds. There are many feminized plants available, including wheat, alfalfa, lavender, and roses. You will need about 400 pollen cups (or more) of both male plants and female plants for each plant. Many growers find that using low quality or hybrid seeds works better than the high quality seeds because they often have more character and are considered more natural.
When choosing feminized seeds, make sure that you choose plants that flower in the late winter and early spring. It is best to choose a warm-season plant with good pollination if you want to try cross-pollinating. Cross-pollination can occur if your regular seed has a blossom tip, but not an opening wide enough for your sensi to flow through. If you are not going to cross-pollinate your cannabis seed with another plant, you may also cross-pollinate your garden with other flowering plants like passion fruit. Just keep in mind that cross-pollination will make your garden less balanced with the feminized seeds you purchased.
In order to get the most out of your plants, it is very important to follow your growing requirements. It is also very important to choose a sensitive plant with a strong developing habit. If you choose a cannabis plant with a strong developing habit, it could prove to be a problem in the future. The best way to develop your new plant is to ensure that you purchase a few different kinds. By doing so, you will ensure that you get exactly what you need for a strong developing plant life cycle, strong pollination, and a strong and healthy flowering time.
