Critical + is a clear example that colour, contrary to what many growers believe, is not necessarily a quality indicator: these undeniably high-quality seeds exhibit a very light grey, almost whitish grey, to a medium grey colour.
So in this case, an increase in size could be a direct indicator of this addition of calcium and magnesium, which is carried out in order to alleviate that macronutrient deficiency during growth. This has no impact on the plant’s potential for germination, growth, flowering, or yield, nor on the development of the organoleptic properties of the buds (aroma, flavour and effect).
Cannabis seeds can also show slight changes at morphological level. It’s perfectly normal to find minor differences in the oval shape of seeds from the same batch.
Another aspect that can be misleading is the fact that a ripe, freshly-harvested cannabis seed has a brighter and darker colour than after it’s been packaged for 1 to 2 months.
The same thing happens with cannabis seeds: the packaging and the different stages before they’re commercialised can entail lighting and humidity changes, as well as a bit of oxidation, which may slightly affect the colour of the shell but definitely has no impact on the final product. Once again, this is simply a visual effect.
Although it is true that ripe cannabis seeds tend to have a dark shell that can go from brown to black, with lines that look like tiger stripes, this cannot be regarded as a quality indicator by itself.
However, a greenish colour is a clear sign of immaturity, which means that the seed hasn’t developed fully or it hasn’t received all the necessary resources to reach full maturity. In this particular case, if you purchase seeds with this colour you need to contact your supplier immediately and try to have them replaced.
hey guys.. i have been digging on the forum trying to find out if you can germinate green seeds..
a friend of mine gave me some of his auto flowering ak47 x blueberry. i think the female must have either a) went too long and made seed, or was pollinated by one of his males.
Oh man, lol this was real hard to follow but. I agree (maybe?)
had a real real green purple lady seed,that grew,go for it
all of my lowlife auto ak seeds looks gash,cracked pale and everything,but all grew and are fine.
