Thanks to seed feminization, the process of growing becomes faster, and the end product reaches high quality with good yields.
How Do Breeders Make Seeds Feminized?
The method of feminization is simple: two full-grown female plants are planted next to each other so all their offsprings are also female. Flowers are sprayed with a particular composition (gibberellic acid or colloidal silver). As a result, one plant begins to bring forth pollen bags like male individuals. Breeders use “female” pollen to fertilize another feminized plant, which contains seeds with pure female genes.
Naturally pollinated cannabis produces seeds of both sexes. Therefore, the chance of a cultivator to be able to get a female plant is 50%. However, sometimes the quality isn’t as good as it seems; too many male plants can spoil the growth. Also, for breeders who need blooms, male plants are not useful.
Of course, one can just plant twice as many seeds to get more female plants. But why complicate your life so much if you can get only female ones? The only key is to find a trustworthy supplier.
