If possible, change your clothes before entering the female grow space. Any lingering pollen could accidentally fertilise unselected plants.
Regular cannabis seeds are free from human tampering. Every time you germinate them, you’re taking a gamble. There’s an even chance that they’ll grow up to be flowering females or pollen-producing males.
RQS Fabric Pots are ideal for the entire growing cycle. These environmentally friendly pots retain moisture while allowing roots to breathe properly. The pots are available in 11, 15, 19, and 25l sizes. Up-pot your plants to the next size as they continue to grow. RQS Fabric Pots are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
STEP 1: CHOOSE A MALE AND COLLECT POLLEN
Regular cannabis seeds operate exactly how nature intended. They have a 50% chance of emerging as either male or female. As such, they allow breeders to create new cultivars and produce better-quality clones.
Dedicate a separate room or grow tent to male plants. Once they’re mature, you can collect their pollen for future breeding projects. Alternatively, you can place them in a dedicated breeding tent with a female to produce seeds naturally.
Temperature and humidity are important variables in preventing mould and optimising yield. These factors can be controlled indoors by using humidifiers, dehumidifiers, heaters, and air conditioning.
At RQS, we recommend growing organically. Studies have confirmed the harmful effects of pesticides and herbicides, and holistic methods render synthetic nutrients unnecessary.
Regular Cannabis seeds have both male and female seeds in an ideal proportion of 50/50. In order to find out which is which, all the Cannabis seeds have to be germinated and grown until they “sex” or begin to show signs of being females (pre-flowers) or males (pre-pollen sacs). The male Cannabis seeds can be discarded or used to breed. The female plants obtained from regular Cannabis seeds are much more genetically stable and will not turn hermaphrodite under stress so you can make highly successful cuttings. You cannot know what sex the regular Cannabis seeds will be by just looking at it.

What are regular cannabis seeds beside being “difficult” to grow?
With best wishes,
Please dont end the line!
Even males are holy!
Never give upp the fight!
Please do not stop selling regular seeds. Given there is still much to learn about this plant, there is the possibility that male plants can still serve good purpose. If not for breeding, perhaps for providing medicine in it’s raw form.
What is the difference between indica and sativa?
Hermaphroditism should be a recissive gene, but your breeding requires it to be a dominant trait. It’s like finding people with dodgy heart conditions or baldness (typical recessive traits that can skip generations) breeding them so everyone goes bald and has a bad heart.
