The regular seeds are marijuana seeds of undefined sex because in each cultivation of this type of strain, you can obtain female or male plants. Therefore, there is a risk because if you are only looking for female plants, you risk having males in your garden.
Blimburn Seeds offers 99% feminized cannabis seeds that will not cause problems in your crops or the appearance of males in your garden. If you are looking to have big yields with lots of delicious buds and no seeds appearing in your flowers, then growing marijuana plants from feminized seeds is the best thing to do.
What are the benefits of growing regular seeds?
The benefits of regular seeds are mainly for more advanced growers who want to have special gardens and exclusive genetics. In order not to get ahead of ourselves, here are some of the main benefits.
- With regular cannabis seeds, you can obtain new cannabis genetics. This is because you get female and male cannabis plants.
- If you are looking for resistant plants, then regular cannabis seeds are for you because regular strains also tend to produce more vigorous plants that can tolerate stress well and produce cuttings that have more powerful growth and heavy yields.
- Growing regular weed seeds is one of the most entertaining adventures that you can have in your garden. It is a great natural experience that every grower, whether expert or beginner, must enjoy.
Growing regular cannabis seeds
With regular cannabis seeds, you can get new strains and genetics. This is because male cannabis plants produce pollen which is captured by the pistils of female weed plants when flowering begins. After this initial process, as it begins to develop the bud in the female pot plant, the new weed seeds are also created. When this process passes, the female cannabis plant can suffer several effects that we detail below.
In the first place, the buds that have been pollinated and have created seeds can be affected because they develop with less power because the plant spends energy forming the flower and also producing the seed. Also, the taste of the buds and even the smoke can be affected because the plant, by distributing energy in a different way, prioritizes other factors other than taste, aroma, or sugar production. From the cultivation of regular cannabis seeds, you can obtain cannabis mother plants and male cannabis parents by means of clones. With this process, you can keep the same cannabis plant that you like so much for a long time without having genetic problems with its offspring. When you clone a male from a cannabis plant, you make sure that you can conserve the pollen of a male that you like, both for its physical structure as well as for other qualities of the strain.
Learn how to grow regular cannabis seeds
Growing regular pot seeds is very similar to growing feminized seeds. However, there are some differences that you should pay attention to and that we will show you. First of all, we start with germination, which is the same as a feminized seed. This process lasts between 1 and 4 days, at which time the seed must have an approximate 80% humidity to prevent it from drying out or damaging. Also, it is important to state that it should be done with an average temperature of about 24ºC to 26ºC.
Second, when you set out to grow regular weed strains, you need to know if it is for an indoor or outdoor garden. You will have much more control when growing indoors because you can measure all the factors and variables that plants need. You will also be able to manipulate weed plants in a better way when they begin to show their sex. To avoid having problems when the plants show their sex, you can apply 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness during the first 2 to 3 weeks of flowering induction. After the female plants begin to show the first pre-flowers and when the males show the first flower buds, you can separate them and if you do not want pollen from the males, eliminate the latter.
Pots and techniques for growing
The main limitation of growing indoors is space, so we recommend using small 2 gallon – 3 gallon pots to have better control over the size of the plants. Another trick is to do LST to plants to ensure good growth of the side branches. To the above, we can add the selection of genetics. For this, it is better to have regular cannabis seeds, mostly Indica, because sativa tend to glean and take up more space.
When you grow outdoors, it is known that marijuana plants have a greater opportunity to sunbathe, but you cannot control the heat waves and possible rains of the summer season that in some places tend to fall. To the above, you must add the pests and fungi that appear due to climate factors. The advantage you have of growing this type of marijuana plant outdoors is that in general, you will not have problems with space and you can occupy larger pots, from 6 gallons to 26 gallons. You can even grow them directly in the ground.
All weed plants must be transplanted after they become a good size. This process is recommended after 1 to 1.5 months after having sown the seed in the first pot. Then, the pot plants show good development, taking over the entire substrate. For example; If you start with a 500cc glass, you can transfer your weed plant to the final pot of 2 gallons or larger. If you want to make a monster plant, it is better that you go from a smaller pot to a larger one in order to help the roots grow healthy and the plant grow strong.
Nutrient and Soil
We recommend organic nutrition for plants because it is the best way to grow marijuana plants in a non-toxic way. For this reason, we tell you that making your own compost tea, a liquid dense in organic nutrients, stimulates the growth of beneficial fungi and bacteria at the same time that it helps to deter pathogens which causes an incredible relationship with the roots, promoting its development and that of the plant.
Another necessary trick that you can use is to make your own compost at home which will help you because it is pure organic nutrition in the soil for your weed plants with a large number of beneficial bacteria microorganisms and specific nutrients that will result in great growth of your weed seedlings.
Water with care
If you are a beginning grower, you should avoid overwatering your plants. On the contrary, start with little water and gradually increase the amount as your plants grow. You can start with small doses of 125cc of water if your plant is in a 500cc glass. When marijuana plants are in larger pots, they can consume more water. For example; a cannabis plant in a 12L pot can be watered with up to 3L of water or a plant in a 30L pot with 7.5L of water. These volumes of water also depend on the genetics you grow because there are varieties that require more water than others. Therefore, it is a question that you must analyze in your crop according to how the plants behave.
Ventilation and Temperature
Controlling humidity and ventilation indoors is easy. However, outdoors, everything is complicated. We are going to help you avoid complication with these tips. When stagnant air builds up, it can generate mold in your indoor garden and can ruin all of your work. So, it is best to install fans if you are growing indoors. Outdoor gardeners should try to put their plants in areas where a good amount of air circulates naturally so that the weed plants are well ventilated.
At this point, we will talk about the temperature that is essential to control. This can be done through the use of fans and indoor humidifiers. Gardeners who have problems with very high humidity can use dehumidifiers to help reduce the humidity of the air and avoid the appearance of fungi that damage the harvest.
Outdoor growers have more problems because factors such as humidity, temperature, and ventilation cannot be controlled. Despite that, you can help your plants with folial watering if the temperatures are very high. Also, you can use some mesh to put a roof over the plants and thus filter the solar rays which also lowers the temperatures. When the growing area is very humid, it is best to use greenhouses to isolate the plants inside it a bit and try to regulate the humidity conditions.
This is a great strain because its size is compact and it adapts well both indoors and outdoors. This variety comes from a cross between Oregon Afghani x Chocolope and is mostly indica. Therefore, its flowering is short and it only takes 60 days indoors and is ready to be harvested in September outdoors. Machalope harvests are abundant and range from 400gr – 650gr/plant outdoors and 400gr – 550gr/m2 indoors. The side branches are strong and thick and can support the heavy buds of these heavy yields. It is always good to provide some support for the side branches.
The buds of the great Machalope harvests are accompanied by delicious flavors between sweet and tropical as fruity notes of cocoa stand out with aftertastes of humid earth. These delicious flavors are combined with extreme potency because this variety contains 20% to 25% THC with an intense mental effect that becomes relaxing on the body level, leaving you lying on the couch.
Lemon Pie Regular
First of all, we want to clarify that this girl is a mega-producer of buds because Lemon Pie can produce up to 700gr/plant outdoors and between 500gr – 600gr/m2 indoors, making her an extraordinary regular cannabis seed for everything. The buds of this mostly sativa strain that is born from a Skunk #1 x Amnesia Haze cross have very particular flavors that go from an intense Lemon to Haze notes that are exquisitely bittersweet.
You can harvest the buds of this incredible variety in 65-75 days when growing indoors and for outdoor gardeners, it is ready in October. An important point to note is that the buds of this variety contain a potency of 18% – 22% THC and less than 2% CBD, which makes it super powerful and causes euphoric effects that stimulate your creativity and end with a soft relaxation.
Candy Punch Regular
First of all, we want to tell you that this variety is a real hit of sweetness because it comes from an incredible cross between Africa x Great White Shark, parents that give this wonderful variety the mostly sativa character. Despite its sativa genotype, Candy Punch has a rather compact structure and medium internodes. All gardeners who wish to grow this regular variety will be rewarded with great yields of 600gr/plant outdoors and 450gr – 600gr/m2 indoors. This result comes after 55 to 60 days of flowering indoors and for outdoor gardeners, the perfect time to harvest is in October. Lovers of magical buds with fruity, sweet flavors and floral and earthy notes will find all of that in the Candy Punch vintages.
When talking about potency, it is necessary to make it clear that Candy Punch has a high potency because its flowers contain levels ranging from 15% – 18% of THC and produce energetic, creative, euphoric, and mental effects that will leave you in focus for the tasks of the day, like a good sativa.
