After completing these steps, it’s time to wait. Check the paper towels once a day to make sure they’re still saturated, and if they are losing moisture, apply more water to keep the seeds happy.
Most cannabis plants begin flowering when the amount of light they receive on a daily basis reduces. Outdoors, this happens when the sun starts setting earlier in the day as the season turns from summer to autumn. Indoor growers can control when a plant flowers by reducing the daily amount of light plants receive from 18 hours to 12 hours.
If cannabis is legal in your state, you can buy seeds or clones from a local dispensary, or online through various seed banks.
If buying from a reputable breeder or seed bank, growing from seed is the best way to ensure your plants will have solid genetics and start clean, meaning they won’t come with diseases or pests.
However, a type of cannabis called Cannabis ruderalis, which developed in extreme northern conditions without much sunlight, will begin flowering once the plant reaches a certain age—they automatically start flowering regardless of the amount of light they receive, hence the name “autoflower.”
Once cannabis seeds are mature, the female plant begins to die, and seeds are either dropped to the ground where they grow into new cannabis plants next spring, or the seeds are harvested for processing into seed oil or food products, or stored so they can be sown in the ground later and become the next generation of plants.
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.
The story is that chemdawg came from "bagseed", but it sure as hell wasn’t a random bag of cheap Mexican schwagg. If you believe the story (which is questionable), it came from a bag of privately grown top-dollar stuff.
Ignore this entire post by Silas.
The chance of you ending up with the "next" C99 from a bagseed is greatly increased if you’re starting with a bag of C99!
If you BUY seeds, most of the time you will get what you pay for.
If you grow bag seeds, well you COULD end up with the next C99.
I have a bagseed growing right now and if all goes well I will be making her into some hash.
On average, bag seeds are way less stable than store-bought seeds.
Fem plants produce seeds just like any other type of plant (if you pollinate them). It doesn’t matter whether you have grown a plant from fem seeds or regular. Neither type is infertile. Of course, bud growers do everything they can to produce buds without seeds, but shit happens, doesn’t it?
The reasons to grow weed from bag seeds are very few:
Can Bag Seeds be Autoflower?
Suppose you buy some buds in a ‘bag’ (a zip lock). You expect the buds to be high quality which means—among other things—that they’ll be without seeds. The buds really do look, smell and taste great, and make you high, too. However, when grinding them, you find a seed or two. And this is what we call ‘bag seeds’.
Most female plants can become hermies if you subject them to stress. It all depends on the amount of stress needed before you see male flowers in your female buds. If the buds have been pollinated by a male (see above), they will show more stability. If they have been pollinated by a hermie, watch out because even the least amount of stress can make such plants ‘turn to the dark side’.
If the buds HAVE been pollinated, then why the f… they are making me high?!
And don’t forget that the father could also have been another mother (a hermaphrodite plant). So do bag seeds work? Yes, they do. Are bag seeds any good? Well, this depends on the quality of both parents, and you simply don’t have enough information.
