For many growers, regular seeds are the only way to get their hands on strains they love. These seeds can produce both male and female plants, but only the females will create buds that have psychoactive effects.
The ability to grow consistent crops is the key to cultivating quality cannabis. But stable genetics are a challenge for many commercial growers because they require plant breeding, which is expensive and time-consuming.
Breeders start by selecting a male parent plant and a female plant that display the traits they are after. This is known as an F1 hybrid. Next, breeders cross-pollinate these plants to create an F2 generation of offspring. Some of these offspring will display the desired parental plant traits, while others may not.
This process requires patience, rigorous selection, and the growth of multiple generations of plants. As a result, it can take more than twelve generations to achieve reliable stability of genetics. We are seeing a number of agtech companies emerge that specialize in creating stable seeds and developing new strains, which can be patented as intellectual property. This will help free up growers’ capital and allow them to focus on what they do best, growing cannabis.
If you want to grow as natural as possible, regular seeds are the way to go. They are less expensive than feminized seeds and can be used to cultivate your next harvest. They are also a great option for those who are looking to breed and make their own strains as they produce both male and female plants.
This allows you to produce new seeds and strains with a variety of characteristics including genetics, potency, terpene profile, and yielding capacity. If you are planning on using your crop for breeding, then this is a great choice as it prevents the waste of valuable seedlings that would be produced from feminized seeds.
Several cultivars, notably Gracia, Pyramid, and Vertigo, had regression coefficients that were significantly greater than 1, indicating that they have wider adaptability to environmental conditions than the average. However, other cultivars, such as Kontu, Snowdrop, and SSNS-1, deviated from the regression line and had lower protein content than expected by their seed yield.
Regular seeds are less expensive than feminized varieties, making them a great choice for first-time growers or those with limited growing space. They are also the perfect choice for breeders who want to explore a cultivar’s full genetic potential.
Unlike feminized seed, which only produce female plants, regular marijuana seeds produce male and female plants. If you don’t separate the male and female plants, they will pollinate each other throughout flowering and produce smokable buds and new seeds.
With a wide selection of regular strains, we have something for every type of grower. Those who prefer a more traditional experience with cannabis will choose photoperiod seeds that require transitions in light schedules to trigger flowering, while those with limited cultivation space may opt for autoflower varieties. Whatever your preference, you can be sure that Marijuana Seeds NL will provide the best marijuana seeds for sale. Our regular seeds are selected with vigour, potency and stability in mind, so you can expect a high-quality harvest.
Using regular seed can be challenging, especially for new growers because the plants are not guaranteed to produce only female specimens. This means there is a risk that the cultivator will get male plants that will produce seeds, which will waste growing space and nutrients. Feminized seeds eliminate this problem and guarantee 100% female plants.
However, this also means that there is a possibility of obtaining hermaphrodite plants (plants with both male and female reproductive organs). These will need to be carefully monitored and removed as soon as they appear, because they will cause unwanted pollination and reduce flower quality. It is important that growers understand this and use methods and tricks of the trade to prevent hermaphrodites from ruining the entire harvest. This will require a very stable cultivation process, ensuring consistent temperature, humidity, and light cycles. This will ensure a high-quality crop that has a strong chance of producing desirable phenotypes. This makes regular seeds a great option for experienced growers.
