What are feminised seeds?

Dutch Passion created feminized cannabis seeds

Feminised cannabis seeds have been one of the most important contributions to the cannabis growing movement in the last generation. Dutch Passion were the first ones who, against all odds, created cannabis seeds that gave rise to 95%+ female plants. These seeds are known as feminised seeds, today they are the most popular and convenient choice for those growing their own stash.

The inconvenience of regular seeds

Before feminised seeds, ‘regular’ cannabis seeds were used which produced approximately 50% male and 50% female plants. This meant that growers had to germinate and grow twice the desired number seedlings in order to reach a satisfactory number of mature females. With the arrival of feminised marijuhana seeds a grower simply plants the desired number of seeds and forgets about the inconvenience of male plants. Male plants not only waste space in a garden, they also risk reducing the finest sensimilla into seed pods. For most growers of recreational or medical marijuana the male plant is simply no longer wanted. The recent boom in home-grown cannabis has been made a lot easier with the arrival of feminised marijuana seeds. No more worrying about how to identify male plants.

Feminised marijuana seeds are grown in the same way as regular seeds. They can be grown indoors, in greenhouses or outside. They can be grown in soil or hydroponic systems. Feminised seeds give more stable results than regular seeds, resulting in better potency for 80% of all varieties.

The feminisation process

The exact process of cannabis seed feminisation has been a secret for many years. The principle is straightforward. Female plants can be stimulated to produce pollen in such a way that the pollen is regarded as ‘female pollen’. The female pollen is used to pollinate a female plant which then starts producing seeds. The seeds produced by this method are feminised – they give rise only to female plants.

The benefits of feminised marijuana seeds

As an additional benefit the feminised marijuana seeds tend to give rise to more uniform plants than regular seed. For the experienced growers feminised seeds have simplified life. To the new grower, feminised cannabis seeds are the only way to go. Growing top quality strains of cannabis has never been as easy, just choose the strain, plant the seeds and ensure ample light and sufficient nutrients.

Dutch Passion invented feminised marijuana seeds and have perhaps the worlds best selection of top quality feminised strains. If you are thinking about buying some feminised seeds then first take a look at what Dutch Passion has to offer – you won’t be disappointed!

The feminized seed experiment

In a Dutch Passion experiment done in 1999 Dutch Passion grew 15 varieties of “feminized” seeds. We started with 30 seeds per variety. The goals were: 1) to determine the percentages of female, male, and hermaphroditic plants. 2) to compare the uniformity (homogeneity) among plants from “feminized” seeds with those grown from “regular” seeds.

1. The results were excellent. Nine out of fifteen varieties had 100% female offspring. Percentages of female plants from the other 6 varieties were between 80 and 90%. These plants were all hermaphrodites, producing their male flowers at the end of their lifecycle. Seed-setting hardly took place. No males were found.

2. Approximately 70% of the plants of varieties grown from “feminized” seeds were far more uniform than plants grown from “regular” seeds of the same variety. About 20% of the varieties were a little more uniform, while in 10% of the varieties no difference in uniformity was seen.

From literature and our own findings it appears that the growth of a male or female plant from seed, except for the predisposition in the gender chromosomes, also depends on various environmental factors. The environmental factors that influence gender are:

• a higher nitrogen concentration will give more females.
• a higher potassium concentration will give more males.
• a higher humidity will give more females.
• a lower temperature will give more females.
• more blue light will give more females.
• Fewer hours of light will give more females.

It is important to start these changes at the three-pairs-of-leaves stage and continue for two or three weeks, before reverting to standard conditions.

To produce our feminized cannabis seeds, we start with selected female clones. Under standard conditions these female clones do not produce any male flowers. By the method we found, we are able to have these female clones produce abundant male flowers and pollen (see photos). The pollen thus produced we use for the production of our “feminized” seeds.

Weird Looking Pods But Not Seed??

I have a small outdoor plant. It’s starting to flower just before it did it came of with alot of pod looking things in between the nodes.
At first with the abundance of them looking like some type of growth i immediately thought they were seed pods and moved her away from her sisters.
The pods are now opening and alot have just opened and become part of the forming flowers.
Does anyone know what this is?

You have a hermie. It’s male and female.those pods are the male pollen sacs.
It looks like a couple have already opened up,so you will have seeds if it’s good pollen.

Remove it from the others. Cut it down. It will only bring you more bad issues and worry.its genetics are not ideal.

It really depends on if he wants seeds or not. Seeds are relatively cheap online, though. I believe nirvana seeds gives you ten free random seeds whenever you order, and ordering seeds is legal, bruh.

Best of luck. Peace

Chop that beast down.
It’s a hermi. You don’t want it and you don’t want the seeds it might make.
The seeds will be full of hermi prone genetics.

It’s a bad idea to keep the plant or the seeds.

Best of luck.

Thats a really confused plants.. A lot of times when I get a Hermi outdoors its usually only one branch and its produces only a couple male flowers. That thing is just about half female half male— kill it 🙂

I don’t think that hermie genes get passed on.. I think something happens to the plant to cause it stress and that causes it to produce both male and female flowers.. For example I have grown the same sour genetics for years in my garage.. Only 2 or 3 times have I done something to stress the plant so much that a couple plants created hermie flowers.. One time was heat stress and the other time my new AC unit had a neon light I didn’t notice that created hermie flowers. Anyways I would love to hear some other opinions

Burn that nasty he/she it’s straight Bruce/caitlyn and what seeds it make you are not gona be stable that’s a full hermi not a few stress nanas

holy shit. people like to throw the hermaphrodite word around, this is a TRUE hermaphrodite – 50/50 female:male flowers. DO NOT KEEP ANY SEED YOU FIND.

This trait was bred out of recreational cannabis decades ago, to see a true hermaphrodite these days is truly truly rare. But still not good at all. Congrats on witnessing this, sorry you have to scrap it.

I disagree with you all. All my seeds are from out of bud I’ve brought so they are all from hermie plants. Ive had a few go hermie but I’ve had a few good ones too and the good ones were very airy buds but very sticky leaf and very potent and that plant came from a seed that had fallen off my first plant that was a disaster of a plant. What grew from that was a nice full female plant.
The gene can die out.
I have hundreds of seeds that I’ve collected from bud that ive smoked.
At the price of seeds and the risk of bringing them into Australia i would never buy any.
At the end of the day its free bud, to get good stuff you need to spend money on it which i don’t have.

Confusion. All seeds don’t come from hermis. some breeding still occurs today. Maybe you original bud was accidentally partially pollinated from a male before he was spotted, believe me it happens a lot just a handful of beans show up.
Most folks don’t want to waste space on unstable plants that produce inconsistent product. That said. It’s your adventure so enjoy.

Just try to think of it as Humans playing the role of evolution with marijuana. There’s that joke “they work on bud like it’s the cure for cancer.” So, essentially, we’re trying to rid the world of all of the “Lame” plants, if you will. Breeders bring genetics up, and obviously, with genetic mutations and what not, there will always be hermies, but we want the genetically strong plants to pass their info onto the next plant, thus evolving the plant further. Same as animals, bugs, et all. It’s fascinating. Life’s wierd. <3

How the hell are you going to come on here asking what male flowers are, and then say you disagree with us all?! That’s a true hermaphrodite – as in, it’s producing full male and female flowers on the same branch. Not a forced herm like most of us see indoors, but a TRUE hermaphrodite.

The gene that is identified as the “herm” gene is found in every variety of cannabis – whether it’s active or not is the question, and as far as science can tell the difference between a herm and a normal plant is the plant’s cellular disposition as to whether it’s going to activate the gene or not, which it can do at any point (forced herm). True-breeding herms were bred out of seed stock in the 70s and 80s, the only thing I can think of as to why you would still be seeing any at all is that Australia is fairly isolated from the rest of the world and has a more unique genetic stock than the americas or europe, where genetics are shared 24/7.
