However, a type of cannabis called Cannabis ruderalis, which developed in extreme northern conditions without much sunlight, will begin flowering once the plant reaches a certain age—they automatically start flowering regardless of the amount of light they receive, hence the name “autoflower.”
Females will have a round structure with long hairs—these hairs will develop into pistils, which will catch pollen in the air.
Tips for growing autoflower marijuana seeds
Make sure the area the seeds are in is warm, somewhere between 70-85°F.
Autoflowering seeds are also popular with beginning growers. They are easy to grow because you don’t have to worry about light cycles and how much light a plant receives.
This is sometimes referred to as “cloning by seed” and will not produce any male plants. This is achieved through several methods:
If you want to grow cannabis seeds it’s very important that you cultivate female plants. The male plant only produces pollen and when pollinizes other plants they produce ultimately seed, so these aren’t any good. A female plant produces the flower, your buds. So if you want to grow for personal use, you only need to grow female cannabis plants.
The plants from regular cannabis seeds can both be male and female. If you have ordered 10 regular cannabis seeds for instance, you can’t know if the plants will become male or female, most probably male/famale would be 5/5. When they are cultivated in good circumstances, you are more likely to grow female plants.
What do you have to pay attention to when buying cannabis seeds?
There are numerous cannabis seeds on the market. Briefly summarised you can divide these into three groups:
We would like to explain the difference between the different type of cannabis seeds.
Feminized cannabis seeds are genetically altered so that they produce female plants in at least 97% of the cases. This forms a great advantage as only female cannabis plants produce flowers. The male cannabis plants don’t produce flowers, contain little THC and can even influence the production of THC of female plants. The female cannabis plant produces considerably more working substances such as THC, CBD, CBG and CBN than a male cannabis plant. Before bringing the seeds on the market, they are first thoroughly tested and further cultivated so that we are sure that our plants are genetically stable and consistent.
You don’t have to bother about finding the perfect space as well, because this strain can grow both inside and out. Once you plant it, you will get about 500 grams from one fully grown herb.
The THC level of this plant is 15% and it is 60% Indica and 40% Sativa. This means that when you smoke or take it, you will feel happy, relaxed, and really cozy. Users suggest that this strain may make you a bit distracted and forgetful. It is not recommended if you need to focus on your work or if you are looking for something that will make you feel energized.
