Autoflowers don’t need lots of nutrients because they’re small and don’t spend much time in the vegetative cycle. They won’t need as much veg nutrients—such as nitrogen—but will need more bloom nutrients.
Most experienced or commercial growers will not use feminized seeds because they only contain one set of genes, and these should never be used for breeding purposes. However, a lot of beginning growers start with feminized seeds because they eliminate the worry of having to deal with male plants.
If growing male and female cannabis seeds, they’ll start to show their sex organs, or “pre-flowers,” after 8-10 weeks from germination.
Viable or not, there’s only one sure way to find out if a bagseed will grow. If you’re simply curious to learn and not as concerned with the overall outcome, you can plant a couple of bagseeds outside and see what happens.
Through cloning, you can create a new harvest with exact replicas of your favorite plant. Because genetics are identical, a clone will give you a plant with the same characteristics as the mother, such as flavor, cannabinoid profile, yield, grow time, etc. So if you come across a specific strain or phenotype you really like, you might want to clone it to reproduce more buds that have the same effects and characteristics.
If you’ve ever lamented about price, the availability of good marijuana, and other existential questions—and presumably while very high—consider growing your own THC/CBD plants.
We love an auto seed!
- THC is the part that gets you “high.”
- CBD has health benefits without the high effect.
How much are weed seeds?
It’s a good idea.
However, using only self-pollinating plants may increase the risk of inbreeding, which compromises the gene pool. Keeping male plants can counteract the effect.
Naturally, bad gene cannabis seeds also produce a more pungent and less pleasant taste. It’s no coincidence that “cheap marijuana seeds” are sometimes bad gene seeds.
While high-quality seeds are loaded with high THC level for enthusiastic growers, they can only go high because THC and CBD share the same gene, and there are ratio-limits to consider.
