Can a female cannabis plant produce seed, without the pollination of a male cannabis plant?
That's called a hermaphrodite. Females stressed out can develop male pollen sacks to fertilize themselves out of survival. In a nutshell anyway..
ya but how do you get feminized seeds then? hermaphrodite?
I was under the notion that every female plaint can produce 1 seed.
But I could be wrong. So I would like to know.
Thanks man...keep tokin...i have only one seed...and i'm hoping its gonna be a hermi, so then it can produce tons of seeds for next season
Marijuana plants are either male or female – the male produces flowers that fertilize the female plant, which develops buds and seeds. A standard pack of cheap marijuana seeds will produce a mixture of male and female plants in a roughly 50/50 ratio.
Feminized marijuana seeds are produced by cloning and “shocking” female plants by spraying them with a silver solution. This prevents them from developing as males. The seeds from plants that have been treated in this way will only produce female plants – hence they are called feminized marijuana seeds.
Badass dude thanks. I understand now.
haha no problem
We should put this on mythbusters. lol
Haha! yeah!!!! dude isn't it awesome eating cheetos and watching mythbusters while ur baked?? best feeling in the world!
lmao hell yeah!!
I still dont beleave the one about pulling out your hair will not make your hair grow faster. I think the it does make it grow faster.
But I would love to see them grow some killer bud to find out if a female plaint could produce one seed.
That would be the only reason I would get tivo. lol
Breeders do quite a bit of work stablizing their feminized strains. It's not as simple as freaking out a female and, booyaka, you have a healthy pheno automatically. Yes, you may very well end up with some very healthy phenos, but acquiring seeds this way doesn't guarantee the stability you'd get from a breeder.
Lol i can see it now... BUDBUSTERS-STARING JAMIE HEMPSMOKER, AND ADAM SATIVA...lol wtf im so fucked up
Yes this is very true...
But how would i "freak out" a female to become a hermi?
I have never grown out a hermy, but I hear that they often pass on the hermy trait to all of their seeds, meaning seeds from a hermy will often be more hermies. If you still really want one anyway, then just stress the hell out of a known female. Give it irregular light cycles, trim and prune during flowering, etc. This will cause it to change to a hermy. Just make sure it already shows to be female before you stress it or it will be a male.
Dude you are killing me lmao. BUDBUSTER
Dude that is bud abuse. That is like spilling a beer at a party. total party foul.
I'm not growing indoors. I'm gonna grow outdoors m8
FUCK!!! i cant stop laughing!! hahahahah budbuster! hahaa
