However, space isn’t usually an issue outdoors. Growers can cultivate tall and productive plants that provide bigger yields.
Feminized seeds are ideal for growers looking exclusively for buds, but regular seeds have their own list of benefits. Chiefly, they’re paramount in the creation of novel strains. Regular seeds also tend to produce more vigorous plants. These specimens are hardier, can tolerate stress well, and produce cuttings that exhibit explosive growth and awesome yields.
Indoors or outdoors?
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.
If possible, change your clothes before entering the female grow space. Any lingering pollen could accidentally fertilise unselected plants.
The amount of water you give will also depend on the size of your container. Use these figures to administer the right amount of water for your pot size:
Every seasoned smoker you meet will have a handful of favorite strains, whether it’s the classic OG Kush for a euphoric high or Blue Dream for its sweet berry flavor.
Smell can be a huge factor when determining what strain is right for you, some people prefer hard-hitting smells like Platinum Bubba Kush . This strain has a very floral and spicy scent, which many people love. Not all high-quality strains will have a great smell but typically if they lack in scent, they make up for in either taste or effect. Unfortunately, this cannot be said for Reggie weed, it’s not what attracts potential buyers. The strain is often described as having a mild skunky or dry hay smell. While it’s not terrible, there’s nothing alluring about it either.
How Well Does Reggie Weed Grow?
Strains on the opposite side of the spectrum are like Candy Kush. Candy Kush retains more moisture than a lot of other strains. It has a sticky texture that will often leave resin on your fingers. Compared to Reggie, it is also very dense, which is most obvious when you attempt to squeeze in between your fingers.
Luckily, one thing we can depend on is its beautifully sticky texture… Not. Reggie is very dry and dusty to handle and feels a lot like grass clippings. The leaves will often flake from the nugget, leaving a very airy and disappointing bundle of weed. High-quality strains will, again, all have a slightly different texture.
Another problem with this strain is that the female variety is fertilized, which means it typically produces more seeds than leaves. It then uses its valuable energy on the seeds instead of the leaves, which reduces the quality of the strain.
Regular seeds or feminized strains: which are better? When picking the best cannabis seeds for a next grow, deciding on whether to grow feminized or regular (non-feminized) weed seeds is an important step. Feminized seeds have their advantages, but so do non-feminized ones. So how do you know what’s best for your situation? Our grow expert Nibameca shares his personal insights and experience to explain the benefits of regular cannabis seeds.
