Without regular seeds, there would be no breeding! Regular seeds allow you to choose your favourite male and female specimens, and cross them to produce offspring that display the best traits of both parents.
Regular seeds are less expensive than feminized seeds and they provide the grower with more options. They can be purchased at local garden centers or hardware stores for a fraction of the price. They can also be bought in bulk for better prices. In addition, they are less likely to be genetically modified. This is a good thing because genetically modified foods can cause allergies and hepatic problems in humans.
Moreover, regular seeds are more stable than feminized seeds and they can be used to create new strains. In addition, they provide a greater variety of phenotypes, which can result in variations in aroma, taste and effects.
However, it is essential to keep in mind that growing regular seeds requires a certain amount of vigilance and observation to ensure that male plants are not pollinated. This process may be difficult for beginner growers, especially since it takes time to identify and remove the male plants.
They’re more stable
Regular seeds are more stable than feminized ones. While feminized seeds have their place in the cultivation of cannabis, regular seeds remain one of the most popular types for growers who want to focus on quality rather than yield. They’re also a better choice for breeders because they don’t have a chance of becoming hermaphrodites from stress, such as topping, fimming, lollypopping or defoliating, like feminized plants do.
Since feminized seeds are created by cross-pollinating a hermaphrodite plant, they have a much higher risk of becoming hermaphrodites themselves when stressed. This makes them less stable, and it’s why cloning from feminized plants doesn’t always go so well compared to cloned plants from regular seeds. Regular seeds operate just how nature intended, with an even 50/50 chance of producing male or female plants. This is what gives breeders the chance to create their own cultivars, and it’s what allows them to produce superior clones. Their genetic lineage is more reliable too.
They’re easier to breed
Regular seeds are a great choice for growers who want to produce a large crop of weed that has a high yield. Feminized seeds, on the other hand, eliminate the need for pollination and can save you time and effort. However, you should still consider your growing experience, environment, and flowering time when choosing seeds.
The most important use for regular seeds is breeding them to create new strains. They can be used as’mother plants’, which will then produce many clones over the course of several years. This process can be difficult and time-consuming, but it can also result in a crop of feminized cannabis plants with a high bud yield.
Feminized seeds are often preferred by commercial growers, as they allow them to produce a certain ratio of female to male plants. This can help them maximize their profits and reduce the cost of producing a single batch of marijuana. However, it is possible to achieve the same results using regular seeds and a little patience.
They’re easier to clone
As the name suggests, regular seeds are the original, natural variety of marijuana plants. They aren’t feminized or crossed with Ruderalis to make them autoflowering, and they only produce either male or female plants. These are the best seeds to choose if you’re planning to grow your own cannabis, or if you want to breed it.
Cloning is a vital part of the cannabis growing process, and regular seeds are better for that purpose than feminized ones. Cloning enables growers to create an exact genetic copy of a plant and then replicate it with future plantings, whether it’s for greater yields or for specific characteristics like a certain flavour profile or colours.
When choosing a plant to clone, it’s important to select one with strong, healthy roots and that has a vibrant colouring. Avoid plants with brown roots or white spots that indicate the presence of pests like spider mites. Also, be sure to root your clones in a suitable medium, such as rockwool or a soil-based mix.
