There are different types of seeds divided into 3 major categories.
- The feminized,
- The autoflowers,
- and the regulars.
Before embarking on a crop, it is important to choose what kind of seed we are going to cultivate. Here are the differences between the three types of seeds available on the market and therefore in our shop Biotops.biz.
Feminized cannabis seeds
Feminized cannabis seeds are seeds that will only produce female plants.
To obtain 100% feminized seeds, we start with a selection of female seeds that are reproduced together.
A female plant is masculinized by a technique kept very secret by the seedbank. This process ensures a certified feminized seed. Many prefer to use only feminized cannabis seeds so as not to be surprised to see males in their crop, which greatly decreases the yield since the male plants are killed.
Autoflowering cannabis seeds
These seeds have a peculiarity. It does not have a growth phase or it is very short. These plants therefore pass very quickly in bloom and are generally harvestable only 2 months after sowing. Of course, the harvest is very much less than a plant that would have benefited from a normal growth phase. The advantages of this process are numerous. Possibility to put more feet per square meter, harvest every two months around or nearly 6 crops per year, possibility to cultivate and smoke all the year by changing variety regularly.
It should be noted that there are now autoflowering seeds, a new variety called the Max Auto which unlike its sisters autoflo has a small period of growth which makes this species a hybrid between autoflowering and the regular. The yield is greater than a conventional self-flourishing seed.
Regular cannabis seeds
It is the basis of cannabis seeds. Produced naturally without any intervention, cannabis seeds known as standard or regular will be at flowering, either males or females. The wise grower often prefers this type of seed thinking that they are of better quality than the feminized but this is an opinion that everyone makes with his experience. These seeds really address the wise cultivator or those who have small means because generally these cannabis seeds are much cheaper than the two ranges presented previously.
Before choosing the type of seed that suits you, it is good to take into consideration several criteria such as budget, type of taste and effect sought, time, climatic and cultivation conditions .... For each type of crop will suit a type of seed, it is up to you to make your choice.
