The seeds are produced in female cannabis plants and contain the genetics of a male and a female. The seeds need to germinate to sprout and a main root will grow, which will become the main root that anchors the plant. When you grow cannabis plants, they will become female, male or hermaphrodites, that is, a hybrid of both sexes. Knowing the difference between the three is vital to maintaining a strong cultivation operation, whether you're planning to cross strains, maximize the yield of your female plants, or study each of the types.
However, cannabis, like those who love it, does not always comply with the rules. Sometimes, this dioecious plant species goes against the tide and develops male and female reproductive organs. These specimens are known as hermaphrodites. Genetic or environmental factors, or both, can cause plants to develop this unusual trait.
By having buds and sacs of pollen, they end up developing the ability to pollinate and reproduce with themselves. Several factors can cause female plants to start developing sacs of pollen or stamens exposed next to their flowers. This trait means that plants don't need to rely on a nearby male to burst their sacs and fertilize them. As we shall see later, this is actually an ingenious survival mechanism and a demonstration of nature's genius.
However, hermaphrodites are not recommended in the grow room or garden. Now, let's look at both types and how to avoid the problems they cause. Even if you have all these bases covered, plants can pollinate on their own due to genetics. Plants with a poor genetic history may inherit genes associated with the expression of male flowers, producing hermaphrodites.
Regardless of whether a grower uses regular, feminized or autoflowering seeds, cannabis seeds must germinate before planting. Male weed plants grow “balls” that open to let out their pollen and end up looking like a small bouquet of flowers. It also means that cannabis breeders have more control when it comes to crossing specific males and females. Last year I did the same thing, but all of a sudden Last year in Brew I will mail columnade is that the female is once horrible to do it for a year for nothing, now I have a fraying that is happening to the swan.
I folded a path that looks like mail with the bulbs, but I don't know, I just don't know if it was actually mail, so I planted it alone in the back of the yard, but I don't want the rest of the plants in the pot to be pollinated, how can I be sure?. Autoflowering cannabis and easily distributed seed have opened a whole new market in the world of online cultivation stores, allowing home growers with limited space to grow rewarding cannabis plants in many different varieties. In marijuana plants, environmental stressors that increase JA production could promote the formation of hermaphroditic flowers, but this requires further study. By avoiding the fertilization process, sensitive plants grow to produce more resin and, therefore, more cannabinoids and terpenes in general.
The autoflowering seeds come from a rare cannabis strain called cannabis ruderalis, which evolved in northern climates with long summer days. Optical and electronic scanning electron microscopy observations of anthers and pollen grains in hermaphroditic Cannabis sativa flowers. During this time, females produce resinous buds loaded with cannabinoids, and males form sacs filled with pollen. The primers were designed based on a BLAST result of high homology between these sequences and Scaffold (22645) from the Purple Kush Genome (CanSat), available in The Cannabis Genome Browser.
When male and female marijuana plants are grown together, male cannabis plants pollinate females, causing them to produce seeds. Ruderalis plants tend to have lower cannabinoid percentages, so most autoflowering seeds are crossed with a conventional sativa or indica strain. Most cannabis plants are photoperiodic, meaning that they require specific light cycles to move from their vegetative stage to their flowering stage.

This is why many cannabis experts haven't yet made the leap from regular to feminized marijuana; they prefer to harvest a little less yield, which is more potent and delicious. . .
