Frequently asked questions about Feminized
Regular cannabis seeds produce a roughly equal number of male and female plants. Feminized seeds were created by breeders who were interested in the buds that grow on female plants. When you put feminized weed seeds in the soil, they are guaranteed to be bud-producing, so it cuts out the step of determining the sex of marijuana plants, discarding the males, and wasting resources on them. When you buy feminized seeds, you reduce the risk of having a male sneak into your crop, which can pollinate the entire harvest and cause females to focus on producing seeds instead of buds. Almost 95% of all feminized seeds mature into photoperiod female weed plants. Invented in the 1990s, they remain popular with most cultivators.
You can legally buy feminized marijuana seeds if you reside in a U.S. state with legalized cannabis use. Dispensaries also offer feminized seeds for sale, but usually, they specialize in flowers and smoking accessories and have a limited assortment of weed seeds. The best alternative is to visit online seed banks that offer a vast collection of feminized cannabis seeds for sale from different breeders and in different varieties. Unlike dispensaries, online stores work 24/7, and your order will be delivered right to your door in discreet packaging. Buying these seeds from international suppliers is risky since marijuana transportation through U.S. borders is illegal due to federal laws.
When looking for feminized marijuana seeds for sale, you can come across photoperiod and autoflowering ones. Feminized photoperiod plants have 2 growth phases and need 18/6 hours of light circulation in their vegetative stage and 12/12 hours when they start to flower. Feminized autoflowers need 18/6 or 20/4 hours of daily light from seed to harvest without reducing light hours, going into the bloom phase automatically. The blooming time is strain-dependent, but usually, it takes 9 weeks. Grown indoors, plants require moderate humidity levels and temperatures of 68-78°F (20-25°C). When cultivated outdoors, they prefer a warm Mediterranean climate. Gardeners should take preventive measures against pathogens and pests with natural foliar sprays. They should avoid overwatering and overfeeding.
Autoflowering plants don’t depend on the change in light cycles and automatically start to flower as soon as they mature. Feminized seeds produce only female plants that result in bud but not seed production. It is not really correct to contrapose these notions because seeds can be both autoflowering and feminized, meaning they flower automatically and produce female flowers (buds), or neither of them. In general, if you want maximum harvest and potency from your yield, plant feminized seeds. If you are looking for quick crops and have little cultivation experience, opt for autoflowering seeds. The advantages of the best feminized seeds are that they have more THC, let you take clones and keep mothers, and allow you to save on electricity. The strong sides of autoflowers are that they withstand harsh climates when grown outdoors, allow you to have several consecutive harvests per season, and finish faster.
Feminized seeds are made by breeding 2 female weed plants together. Since there are no male parents, all the resulting seeds will be bud-producing female plants. You don’t need to worry because these seeds ensure that every plant is female from germination. However, there is no 100% guarantee, and, in single cases, a feminized seed may still grow to become a male plant. For this reason, gardeners should keep an eye on their plants as they mature. If they see that pollen sacs start to form, which is characteristic of male plants, they should remove this plant before it accidentally pollinates and ruins your female cannabis plants.
