First of all, everyone who has grown cannabis has asked this question at some point. Fortunately, each genus has unique characteristics that distinguish them and help growers easily identify them.
Secondly, in this article we will tell you how to identify male, female and hermaphrodite Cannabis plants.
What is the difference between the three?
FEMALE CANNABIS PLANTS
First of all, female cannabis plants usually start to show sex with small preflowers. In other words, around 4-6 weeks from germination. Also, the female pre-flowers are quickly visualized in the form of small white hairs called pistils.
Secondly, as the plant develops, many of these small preflowers growing together will develop into large flowers or buds.
MALE CANNABIS PLANTS
First, male cannabis plants produce small sacs, bananas or sacs which contain the plant’s pollen. In other words, around 3-4 weeks after germination. In addition, male plants are not able to produce flowers so we will not get buds. However, they produce the pollen needed to pollinate the female plants.
Secondly, it is important to identify a male plant in order not to spoil our harvest. In other words, once the pollen sac is open it can pollinate your entire crop. Also, pollinate within a 5 km radius.
Thirdly, if what you want is to obtain a production of seeds you must introduce a male plant in your crop of female plants.
HERMAPHRODITE CANNABIS PLANTS
First of all, hermaphrodite cannabis plants can have their origin in genetics or become hermaphrodite during cultivation. In addition, hermaphrodite plants as well as male plants can pollinate our crop.
Secondly, they are easy to identify as they are small bananas that appear on our plant. Sometimes, between the internodes and other times next to the set of female pre-flowers.
Thirdly, some factors such as stress to the plant produce this change of alteration in our cannabis plant.
Finally, the feminized cannabis seeds are those plants that after their germination become female plants, which we usually grow to obtain a good harvest of flowers or buds.
On the contrary, regular seeds after germination become male cannabis plants. In other words, it contains pollen sacs to later germinate female plants and thus obtain a seed production.
However, male cannabis plants alone cannot produce seeds.
First of all, if you want to obtain your own cannabis seeds you have to have several female plants and one male plant.
From Osseeds Bank, we have a catalog with more than 400 feminized seeds. In addition, we have a large selection of Regular seeds.
