Whether you’re growing a crop or just planting seeds for future planting, you may be wondering whether to plant regular seeds or feminized seeds. In this article, we’ll cover some of the differences between the two and why you should consider a feminized seed over a regular one.
Feminized vs regular seeds
Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced grower, you’ll need to know the differences between feminized and regular seeds to choose the right one. Both have their pros and cons.
Feminized seeds are genetically modified to produce female plants. This makes them a great option for beginners. But it also means that you won’t have any male plants to pollinate. You’ll also need a special lighting schedule to grow these seeds.
Feminized seeds tend to have higher prices. They’re also more potent. They can produce practically unlimited clones. However, they’re not recommended for cloning.
Autoflower vs regular seeds
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced grower, it is important to understand the differences between regular seeds and autoflowering seeds. Choosing the right seeds for your needs and budget will make a difference in your experience.
The average life cycle of an autoflower is about ten weeks. Its yield is comparatively low, but it can be harvested quickly, making it an ideal choice for stealthy guerrilla grows.
Autoflowers require less water than their photoperiod counterparts. It also grows in a compact form, making it perfect for growing indoors or on balconies. Autoflowers are also more resilient, and are often recommended for micro-grows and guerrilla grow operations.
Sensi Seeds still produces regular seeds
Throughout its 30-year history, Sensi Seeds has aimed to improve its products and cultivars. Its research efforts have led to the creation of some of the most highly productive hybrids in the cannabis world. These varieties are perfect for growing outdoors in non-traditional climates.
The Early Girl Regular cannabis strain is a quick-to-flowering indica-sativa hybrid. This strain has a small flowering time and produces uniform, resilient plants. It also produces large yields. The dried buds have a slightly euphoric, yet earthy, taste.
The original Skunk #1 cannabis strain produces exotic sativa-like flavours and resin production. It also produces a solid indica-type high.
The Mexican Sativa Feminized is a great strain for beginners. It has an uplifting sativa-like high and is a good yielder. It also thrives in cold, wet climates.
Feminized seeds yield twice the yields of regular seeds
Unlike regular seeds, feminized seeds produce more buds. The reason for this is that feminized seeds are manipulated to produce female plants. This is a good choice for growers who want a good harvest.
Feminized seeds do not produce the same amount of THC as their non-feminized counterparts. This is because genetics determine the potency of a plant. In general, cannabis strains that contain at least 20% THC are considered to be strong. However, you should choose a strain that suits the climate and environment of your grow space.
When choosing seeds for your grow, make sure to choose seeds that are reputable. Some seed banks sell low-quality seeds and this can affect your cultivation experience. Choose a company that has in-house breeders and states where their seeds are sourced. This will ensure that you are not wasting money on cultivation.
Feminized autoflowering seeds are more popular than regular seeds
Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned grower, you need to know the difference between feminized autoflowering seeds and regular seeds. The two types of seeds come with different benefits. While you can easily choose one or the other, it’s a good idea to know the difference.
The feminized type allows you to grow bigger plants. This is great if you’re planning to grow a large harvest. But, if you’re only looking to produce a few plants, you may want to choose a regular seed.
Feminized seeds are also easier to grow. If you have a limited amount of space, they’re a great option. You don’t need to clone them, and you can produce more plants in less time. This is a big benefit if you’re planning on harvesting multiple times throughout the year.
