Regular seeds are produced by crossing a male plant with a female plant and can come in either male or female.
Feminized seeds grow into female plants that produce the desired flower or bud.
There are different types of cannabis seeds available to the cannabis grower: regular, feminized and auto-flower. The following is a brief explanation of each type so you can determine what is best for your garden.
Auto-flower strains are crosses of modern day strains with Cannabis Ruderalis strains. Cannabis Ruderalis is the 3rd subtype of cannabis, the other two being Indica and Sativa. Cannabis Ruderalis is typically found closer to the North and South Pole, and have a very different lifespan compared to strains originating closer to the Equator.
Feminized seeds are produced when a female plant produces male flowers. This is caused by introducing light at set times during the dark hours of flowering, or by spraying the flower sites of a female plant with Colloidal Silver to produce a chemical change in the plant that produces male flowers with pollen.
If you are committed to outdoor growing there are a few ways that you can help protect your plants when it becomes necessary to do so. Having a greenhouse or clear solid roof over your plants (made of glass, plastic, or acrylic) can create some stability when it comes to ensuring consistent moisture levels in your plants. A fully enclosed greenhouse will help to prevent the moisture from evaporating out of the soil and into the atmosphere, so you will not have to water quite so often. There is also the added side benefit that insect and animal pests will not have the same free reign to come and disturb your flowering beauties. A solid roof (even a temporary/removable one) will prevent heavy rains from soaking your plants and causing over-watering problems. If you live somewhere with mostly favorable summer weather, you can just choose to leave your outdoor plants in large pots so that they can be moved indoors in the event of a storm or excessive heat wave.
If you grow indoors, yield can also be dependent on the lighting you provide. There is still debate on which is the absolute best light to grow indoor weed with, since the different types of light have distinct advantages and disadvantages. As a very rough window of possibility, indoor kind seed grows can yield between anywhere from one to 10 ounces per plant. When growing multiple plants in one room, the overall yield produced depends on how many plants you squeeze in together and what total wattage you supply in the overhead lighting. When growers focus on quality instead of quantity of plants, you can grow a couple of monster plants that turn out several pounds of dried cannabis per plant. Just keep in mind this requires lots of fresh filtered air and high ceilings to let the plants reach their full potential.
Growing Kind Seeds
OG Kush – 75% indica came to be most likely from a female Chemdog and male Hindu Kush cross. It is an American classic with a full bodied musky taste and heavy body stone. Standing for Ocean Grown, the OG represent its Californian roots and not Original Gangster as some are led to believe.
Outdoor weed growing may be seen at face value to be an easier option than indoor growing. Cannabis is after all a plant and plants can do just fine outdoors when they are in their element! But when you consider that creating a successful crop of high-grade smokable products requires a consistent atmosphere, most regions of the United States cannot guarantee this. One heavy wind or rain storm can do substantial damage to your outdoor plants if they are not protected from undesirable elements. The advantages of growing your kind seeds outdoors is that the start-up and operating costs will remain much lower and some believe the sunlight and natural fresh air develop the best marijuana flavors.
Although cannabis plant yields can be tricky to predict with any precision, the germination rates of our kind seed products will be guaranteed to have a minimum success rate. While growing your plants to full maturity takes the mastering of several factors (light, nutrients, pruning, and humidity), germination really only depends on 3 critical factors, darkness, warmth, and dampness. When you provide any seed with the right conditions to mimic springtime, they start to open up out of their dormant state to prepare for the growth cycle to begin. You may have heard that cannabis plants can be propagated using clones, or cuttings, from another mature plant. However, growing from a freshly germinated seed is the best way to ensure you have strong and sturdy plants that can flourish all the way until they are fully ripened. Marijuana cuttings can develop roots quickly, but will never get the large central taproot you get from growing with seed. The taproot provides a great deal of strength and stability to the plant so that it can grow tall and produce a huge weight of buds for you to enjoy.
