A pack of feminized marijuana seeds are certain to offer a desirable option for a lot of growers since it isn’t necessary to be concerned with the male plants ruining the work.
The feminized seeds are created using the female plants which have received a special hormone treatment known as gigerell-acid. An effect of using this hormone is that it is able to force the female plants to produce cannabis flowers of the male species from its pollen containing x-chromosome. Once fertilised using this pollen the female plants is only likely to generate seeds which are 100-percent female. This is certain to mean the resulting crop produced from the feminized seeds includes the familiar flowers with the THC layer of crystals.
If you want six total cannabis plants to harvest for buds and are growing from regular seeds, start with about 4 times as many, or 24 seeds. Some won’t germinate and some will turn out to be males, and then you’ll want to discard down to the six best phenotypes. If growing feminized seeds, you can probably start with about twice as many seeds in this case (about 12); a couple won’t germinate, and then discard down to the six best phenotypes.
