Seeds can also form in plants with genetic disorders or instability, like hermaphrodites—plants that develop both male and female reproductive parts. Generally, stress and genetic disorders are viewed as bad, so temper expectations with any plant you start from a bagseed.

Additionally, every long-time grower will tell you that clones degrade over time.

As interest in CBD as a medicine has grown, many breeders have crossed high-CBD hemp with cannabis. These strains have little or no THC, 1:1 ratios of THC and CBD, or some have a high-THC content along with significant amounts of CBD (3% or more).

Is a bagseed good or bad?

Because only female cannabis plants produce buds and you want them to focus all their energy on producing buds and not seeds, it’s important to identify and get rid of male weed plants so they don’t pollinate females. If females are pollinated, it will give you buds filled with seeds, making your weed harsh and unpleasant.

A couple big drawbacks, though: Autoflower strains are known for being less potent. Also, because they are small in stature, they usually don’t produce big yields.

In commercial cannabis production, generally, growers will plant many seeds of one strain and choose the best plant. They will then take clones from that individual plant, which allows for consistent genetics for mass production.

So don’t discount bud because it has a seed or two in it. While not ideal, it could be the origins of the next great weed strain.

There are a few different options for Rapid Rooters, which can be confusing if you’re not sure what you want. The 3 different options for Rapid Rooters are listed here…

One of the advantages of starting seeds in starter cubes is your sprouted seeds can easily be transferred right to their next growing medium or container.

Germination Method 2: Plant marijuana seeds directly in growing medium

So how come sometimes it looks like a cannabis plant is growing with its roots pointing up?

However, young plant roots do not drink much water yet. When you water seedlings or clones in a very big container, they will use up all the oxygen quickly, and the large size of the container will prevent the growing medium from drying out.

We also had trouble rooting clones in Rockwool. Rockwool cubes just don’t hold enough air to get plenty of oxygen to the roots, and they tend to hold onto a lot of water and get waterlogged easily. Since Rockwool can hold a lot of water, it’s prone to “drowning” seeds

With experience working on an organic farm, water conservation research, farmers markets, and potted plants she understands what makes plants thrive and how can we better understand the connection between microclimate and plant health. When she’s not on the land, Amber loves informing people of new ideas/things related to gardening, especially Indoor gardening, houseplants and Growing plants in a small space.

Here is a variety that produces large yields of extra-large sprouts, typically measuring two inches long.

If you have a 5-7 gallon container, you can grow one plant. If you want to grow more than one together, pick a container that is, at least, 15-gallons with an 18-inch diameter. In one square foot, you can grow two plants.

Final Thoughts

Don’t yank the sprouts off of the plant. Instead, turn and twist the sprouts carefully, and they’ll pop right off of the plant.

This is a hybrid that produces yields of flavorful sprouts. The plants tend to reach 24-28 inches tall.

If you live in a warmer region, you’ll want to provide a partially shaded spot. Too much heat will damage or stunt their growth.

Yes in warmer climates, fall planting is preferred. You should be able to direct seed in mid-summer for a late fall or early winter harvest.
