Regular seeds are a favourite for both experienced and novice growers. They offer pure cannabis genetics formed through breeding both male and female parents, producing approx. 50/50 male and female offspring.
Regular cannabis seeds are more resilient than feminized ones, meaning that they are easier to grow and less likely to turn into hermaphrodites (developing both male and female flowers) during the growing process.
The stability of regular seed is important for growers who want to breed plants. They are usually easier to weed out the males, which can lead to a lot more yields.
Stability is also an advantage for genetic purists since regular seeds are the real deal, not some knockoff or unregulated hybrid. This means that the plants they produce will consistently have the same genetic lineage, as opposed to those with unknown or unstable genetics, which can sometimes produce different phenotypes.
Seeds are a key resource for plant development. They are the primary source of a variety of high-energy compounds that are used for growth and other processes. In addition, seeds are a major food source for a large number of organisms, including insects and birds.
2. Stability for breeding
Regular seed varieties offer better plant genetic stability than feminized ones, which can make them ideal for breeding. The stability of a strain can be determined by the amount of crossbreeding that has taken place in the cultivar’s history.
Stable parents usually produce predictable, homozygous offspring. However, if one or more of the parents is unstable, crossing them can result in heterozygous offspring that express a range of unpredictable traits.
This instability can be avoided by selecting and backcrossing selectively, reinforcing desired dominant traits in the hybrid. This is called stabilizing a strain, and it can take several generations to achieve.
Regular sexed Cannabis seeds represent a breeding line that expresses an equal balance of male and female chromosomes. They are a valuable resource for breeders, as they allow them to create new cultivars and produce superior clones.
3. Stability for cloning
Cloning is the process of taking a mother plant’s stem and root structure and making it into another, identical plant. It can be an excellent way to produce high-quality plants that have the same characteristics as their mothers.
But there are a few important things to keep in mind when using this technique. Firstly, you need to choose a healthy and sturdy mother plant. It should be about two months into the vegetative stage and have not been fertilized.
Secondly, you need to make sure that your clone doesn’t have any pests or diseases. These are a common problem with clones, and can often ruin your entire garden.
The best way to avoid this is by choosing a high-quality seed from our range. These seed varieties are much more stable than their clone counterparts.
4. Stability for harvesting
Getting the most out of your harvest requires careful timing and observation. Pick early enough to ripen all your seeds and late enough to avoid wet weather or hungry animals causing seed rot. A well thought out crop rotation will also help keep seed quality high.
One way to do this is to store a few mature seed pods in a cool dry place before you go to the trouble of picking them. You can also try out multiple seed harvesting techniques to find a winning combo. There are even some specialized harvesting tools out there to help you get the job done faster and smarter. Whether you choose to use the traditional method or a more modern approach, there are many ways to improve your yield and make your plants happier. The most important thing to remember is that a well-designed crop rotation will ensure good results each season. The simplest way to do this is to plant a few different varieties in a single garden bed and rotate them as often as possible.
