The main advantage of regular seeds is their consistency. Unlike knockoff seeds, regular seeds always produce the same offspring with each generation. Hence, they are a favourite of breeders. In addition, these seeds are also highly durable, which means they can be reused again. This trait also allows breeders to fuse regular seeds with other strains for a more potent hybrid.
Regular seeds also have a higher rate of genetic stability and are therefore more suitable for asexual reproduction. They are also more resistant to stresses and are more suitable for cuttings and clones. Moreover, they are easier to grow and have better germination rates. Moreover, they are easier to identify than feminized seeds.
Regular seeds are also less expensive than feminised seeds. However, they do produce half-male plants, which are usually discarded. This means that growers will need to weed out the male plants, but the reduced price makes it worth the extra effort. Regular seeds contain just as desirable genetics for female plants.
Regular seeds are best for making hybrids and breeding purposes. They also provide more seeds than feminized seeds. Regular cannabis seeds are cheaper than feminized ones, and you will be able to compensate for the loss from culling the males. The advantages of regular cannabis seeds far outweigh the drawbacks.
When growing cannabis from seed, you have to remember that you must avoid pollinated buds. Pollinated buds do not produce optimal cannabinoids, and they also give off a harsh smoke. Therefore, the best way to avoid pollination is to segregate males from females or to purchase a fresh seed batch. However, if you don’t want to deal with pollination, you can always try sexing the plants or separating males from females.
Regular seeds are essential to start a home breeding project. You should start with 10 regular seeds. This will give you enough options to make a balanced male-to-female ratio. Besides, it’s a good idea to label the pots with numbers and strain names, which makes the process much easier.
Regular seeds also have the advantage of not having genetically modified plants, so they have a greater chance of producing female cannabis plants. However, regular seeds can produce half male and half female plants. In general, regular seed growers are more advanced growers who are looking for breeding possibilities. It may also be their first time to produce regular seeds by pollinating a female plant. Regular seed growers will usually maintain separate grow rooms for their female and male plants, so they can avoid accidentally releasing pollen into the female section.
Regular cannabis seeds can be grown indoors or outdoors. They grow on a photoperiodic schedule. They will switch from vegetative to flowering according to the light hours. Unlike feminized cannabis seeds, regular seeds are much more resistant and resilient in all conditions. These traits allow them to grow successfully in the home environment. They are also easier to cultivate. The resulting weed plants are more potent and can be harvested in a shorter time.
