Aside from producing cannabis through seeds, or sexual reproduction, you can also reproduce the plant through cloning, or asexual reproduction. A clone is a cutting that is genetically identical to the plant it was taken from—that plant is known as the “mother.”
Some seeds germinate very rapidly while others can take a while, but generally, seeds should germinate in 3-10 days. If it’s been two weeks and a seed hasn’t sprouted, it’s probably a dud and won’t sprout.
What are feminized cannabis seeds?
In some cases, even if a seed isn’t completely mature, there’s still a chance it could be viable. But often these are extremely weak, take long to develop, and express other unfavorable characteristics. Growers usually discard weak plants to free up space.
As mentioned above, you can skip the processing of sexing weed plants by growing with feminized seeds or clones.
Seeds found in finished cannabis buds can develop for a number of reasons. For example, a male plant may have accidentally pollinated a flowering female during the growing process. But more commonly, they’re a sign of stress and can be attributed to high temperatures during the final stages of flowering or an exaggerated spike in climate or environment.
If you want to make the most of our best feminised seeds this season, here are six Golden rules to help you get the perfect crop. Ready? Let’s get down to it.
3. Overwatering: avoid flooding the plants with excessive, too frequent watering and allow time for the plant to “breath” between waterings. Overwatering and overfeeding the crop is not a good idea; more marijuana plants are lost to overprotection and excessive attention than to a bit of procrastination.
5. Nitrogen: nitrogen is essential for the growth and natural development of plants, so make sure it is always available.
2. Underwatering: try to keep humidity under control but without the plant showing obvious symptoms of thirst. If your cannabis plants get too dry during the early growth stages, they will develop further problems later on, particularly at the roots.
4. Space planning: cannabis plants grow vigorously, so even if they are smaller at first, keep in mind that you will have to arrange them according to the size they will be once the vegetative stage is over. Otherwise, the plants will be too close to one another and the crop density will be too high, which might lead to lack of aeration and contribute to the development of fungus.
