Why are we so obsessed with feminised seeds?
As a cannabis cultivation community there seems to be a big obsession with feminised seeds and female plants. Especially on https://reddit.com/r/microgrowery (Which I frequent)
I've been growing for a while now and been flirting with the thought of breeding. Been emailing some breeders and talking to some on reddit. From what I understand feminised seeds can hermi and it is actually better to use regular seeds to get a mother as opposed to making one from a feminised seed. Also breeders have a big interest in both males and female plants, its hard actually for me to try figure out which one breeders are more fascinated by.
In Real Life:
A friend of mine recently had a plant of his hermi from a feminised seed ( I guess it could have been stress on the plant, but he is a pretty competent grower):
His mesage to me was:"Yesterday a girl, today a boy :(" Lol:
On the internet:
I've been playing around with instagram lately. Never took interest to it, till I started looking for growers , breeders and seed companies and they are all on instagram. Humboldt Seed Co has been posting some really cool new strains, like this one:
On the instagram post where the advertised the strain I read some very interesting comments, well even the initial post by Humboldt Seed Company was pretty interesting:
In my country if you've spent some time with people who have spent a long time in jail, you will learn that your ability to listen and rewind what someone said is very important especially if you would like to stay safe. For me on the internet and in real life it is equally important to be able to read what someone has written and dissect it in a mental excercise equal to what some of those people that I've met that spent a long time in jail taught me. This is the part that caught my eye:
Every prospective grower should take a few moments to familiarize themselves with what boys look like! Whether you’re growing from regular seeds, feminized seeds, clones or tc there’s always a chance that you could encounter male parts and unintentionally seed you’re crop 😬! "
Pretty interesting. What are your thoughts? I'm curious about what they said about how that can happen with clones?
Here are some of the comments that I also found very interesting:
