Feminized marijuana seeds have become more popular over the years, primarily because it allows users to get a taste of cannabis without the risks associated with the male seed. A number of manufacturers specialize in these types of products, so choosing which ones are the best can be a difficult task. If you are looking for feminized marijuana seeds then this article will give you a few tips that you should know before you spend any money.
Feminized marijuana seed products may sound something like the name but don’t let that scare you. These are the seeds that are altered to make feminized plants rather than plants that have lost their seed. Think of this as playing god in a weed world.
Methodology in Feminized Seeds
Feminized seed methods can be a little tricky, but time-consuming and very time-consuming is not the key word here. The whole process is not easy – time consuming, it usually involves dousing the seeds with a solution of silver nitrate. The problem is that while this does kill the seed, the female part of the plant, the part that produces the flower, is left intact. This is where things can go wrong.
You see, feminized marijuana can contain several contaminants and toxins that are toxic to a plant’s reproductive life. The best way to protect your seeds from these is by not allowing them to be exposed to these contaminants. There are some companies that sell only feminized marijuana and other companies that sell both types of marijuana. Either way, you are guaranteed that the end product will be free of contaminants.
Feminized Seeds: Males vs Females
Feminized marijuana seeds come in three forms: feminized female plants, feminized male plants, and feminized hybrid plants. While these will all produce flowers, each type is different and produces different characteristics when planted.
Female plants are all plants that have lost their ability to reproduce. This usually happens when they have had their ovaries or fallopian tubes removed. In a few rare cases, it has happened that after the ovaries have fallen out they are able to reproduce again. Sometimes this is caused by genetic causes and other times it is caused by the chemical fertilizers used on the seeds.
Feminized male plants are plants that were not fertilized at all. This is caused by some conditions that the plant is in, such as having the disease, or by a lack of sunlight. In these cases the plant’s ability to reproduce is affected so it is left without ovaries or fallopian tubes.
Growing Feminized Seeds
Feminized marijuana does not always produce flowers, however. It may produce leaves or buds or even roots. It all depends on what it is that you want your marijuana to do. Once you have your choice of feminized seeds and your growing equipment, you are ready to grow.
The only real problem with feminized marijuana seeds is that sometimes the plant will die from the lack of nutrients that it will receive during the growing process. You should check to make sure that the plants are getting enough water and other nutrients to ensure that they have healthy growth.
As for the feminized marijuana that you choose to grow, you need to be sure that it is 100% natural. Some companies add estrogen or phytoestrogens to their products. This can cause feminization and you do not want this in your marijuana. If you buy seeds from a company that you trust, make sure that the seed you are buying was not mixed with hormones.
Once you know that the feminized marijuana that you are growing is pure, then you will be able to choose your growing system. Some methods of growing include hydroponics, which are growing indoors in a solution that is nutrient-free and oxygen-rich, and in an enclosed environment, which allow air and moisture to circulate.
Indoor Gardening for Feminized Seeds
Indoor gardening can be very time consuming, especially if you are new to the indoor gardening hobby. But you can always grow small marijuana plants and work your way up to bigger ones.
