A good grower knows their own strengths and limitations. They know what they can and can’t provide. With this knowledge, they can choose which seeds are the best fit them. A grower with the right seed and growing setup can secure a good harvest. Keep in mind that a regular seed has a different need from a feminized seed.
What are Your Choices Other than Growing Feminized Marijuana Seeds?
There are three kinds of seeds that dominates the market today. There is the regular seed which is requires all the traditional steps. Next is the autoflowering pot seeds which is a little different when compared to a regular one. The difference between them lies with the capability of entering the flowering cycle. A regular seed will enter this cycle usually during the end of summer. This because of the lack of light that it receives due to shorter days. An autoflowering seed however, will enter its flowering stage regardless of the amount of light. You can give it a 24 hour lighting and it will still push through the said stage.
Why you Should Grow Feminized Marijuana Seeds?
Growing feminized pot seeds is easier when compared to those two. A seed’s sex is usually affected by the growing environment. A stressful one can make the majority of them male leading to lesser yield. With feminized seeds, these scenario is no longer your concern. A feminized seed will most probably turn into a female plant even if the environment is a little stressful. For a beginner grower, having a little room for minor mistakes is a good one and growing feminized marijuana seeds can give them just that.
What are the Disadvantage of Feminized Seeds?
There’s no perfect seed. They all have their downsides like minimal growing cycle for regular seeds and lesser yields for autoflowering ones. Feminized seeds have this characteristic to turn into a hermaphroditic plant if the female ratio is high within the growing environment. These plants will pollinate the female plants. Since, there’s a huge number of them, the energy that was supposed to be directed to bud production will be diverted to pollen production thus lessening the yield.
You should know that despite having lesser yield per harvest, unlike the regular seeds, growing feminized cannabis seeds will give you the ability to have multiple harvest within a year. It is up to you to decide if which among these three seeds is best suited for you.
