While there are some strains of marijuana that produce white seeds, you’ll be notified of this difference in seed appearance in the product notes section on any reputable online seed bank.
When grown in the right conditions, feminized cannabis seeds also will resist turning into hermaphrodite plants. By using feminized seeds, you’ll have a lot less wasted energy. You won’t have to worry about growing a bunch of marijuana seeds only to find out that half of the seeds you grew turned out to be male marijuana plants.
How Can You Tell If Your Marijuana Seeds Are Healthy?
In order to get bud from your female marijuana plants, you’ll have to remove the male marijuana plants from your garden before they begin to pollinate. If the male marijuana plants aren’t removed in time, they’ll pollinate your female plants, which will prevent the female plants from flowering. As an end result, the female plants will produce seeds instead of bud, meaning that you won’t be able to harvest any marijuana.
Feminized cannabis seeds only produce female marijuana plants, meaning that you won’t have to worry about removing any male marijuana plants from your garden. The process of feminized cannabis seeds is achieved by spraying the parent pollinated female plant with colloidal silver or gibberellic acid, through a process called Rodelization.
When you’re purchasing regular cannabis seeds, you can estimate about half of the seeds will grow into female plants, while the other half will turn into male plants. While some growers will recommend purchasing regular cannabis seeds because they haven’t been modified in any way, they can be a challenge for beginners to grow who are looking to reap a high yield.
