Because they grow and flower quicker, growers can fit in multiple autoflower cannabis harvests into the span of one regular harvest.
So don’t discount bud because it has a seed or two in it. While not ideal, it could be the origins of the next great weed strain.
Tips for growing autoflower marijuana seeds
Females will have a round structure with long hairs—these hairs will develop into pistils, which will catch pollen in the air.
Cannabis used for hemp production has been selected for other traits, including a low THC content, so as to comply with the 2018 Farm Bill. Consequently, many varieties of hemp produce significant quantities of CBD.
After completing these steps, it’s time to wait. Check the paper towels once a day to make sure they’re still saturated, and if they are losing moisture, apply more water to keep the seeds happy.
However, since you do not know which plants will do well (or even which plants will be female), you have to take clones from every plant. Make sure you label them all well, so that you know exactly which clones came from which plants.
Once the seedlings grow too big for the plastic cups, move them to their first pots.
And once those plants are ready for you to take cuttings, you will not need to take nearly as many (but you still want to take more than you think you will need) and the whole cloning process becomes much easier. You are now in a cycle where you will always have successful clones.
Successful Bagseed Grow: How To Maximize Your Chance Of Success
When you are on your second grow, one where you are growing a clone of a plant you already know has been successful once, then it makes sense to get Rockwool, rooting gel, and anything else to increase your chances of success. You will have fewer clones to deal with and you will already know that each will turn into a successful female plant. You also want to do everything you can to speed up rooting.
You want to take more cuttings from each plant than you think you will need, because not all will root successfully.
Those are the only ones you want to move forward with.
If you do opt to go with bag seeds, here is how to ensure the best possible chance of success, while still keeping your grow simple and inexpensive (again, if you’re not keeping your grow simple and inexpensive, you really shouldn’t be using bag seed either).
