Hi
Big seeds means big calixes
Big calixes means big resin production
It's a quantitative trait long sought after by hashplant growers, Ganja growers looking for quality of the raw plant didn't care for size of calixes
Also Chinese hemp has the biggest seeds because this trait has been favored due to the use of the plant for food

My hemp / sativs L fiber line derived from asian genetics in the periods of 1910-1930 united states department of agriculture breeding, are extremely small black mottled. Un-molested

Hemp pre-dates everything ( building block ) including canna of today by thousands of years. Its birthplace Asia.

It is much more important to concentrate on giving a plant optimal conditions to thrive than worrying about which seed is the biggest or has the coolest designs on it..

Seed size is also determined by environmental factors. Buds that have been pollinated sparingly generally produce larger seeds than buds that have been pollinated extensively. This is largely because the sparsely-pollinated seeds don’t have to compete as hard for nutrients. Certain marijuana seeds in a certain bud may have experienced a better environment than other seeds. Regardless, seed size and plant size are not necessarily related.

i think a small seed has a much smaller tap root and in a week or so they catch up with the larger seeds. some of my biggest plants were from tiny seeds..DJXX

have you ever thought since the taproot is small it hairs out closer to the top of the soil where there is more breathable aerate zones and that and indica goes to far with it's tap to compete with other plants and handle it's own environment?

I noticed smaller seed from heavily pollinated females,
and larger seeds on the same female lightly pollinated.

But generally my narrow leaf crosses have smaller seeds
than my wide leaf crosses.

Any seed that germinates to a keeper is good in my book.

Good thread.

I love big seeds. You get MAGA large coty's.

Wanna know what's cool? If you cold shock a plant and it's first trues are out and then shrivel and die?

You can rip of the first dead leaves if they were damaged. The seed has so much energy in it that it re-grows! Yes people!

I wonder what other ways it helps.

And how long a seed can last without nutes or a lot of them.

Absolutely size matters. The little ones are hard to handle.

I've lost seeds. you're right.

not only are they there for you. they're bigger baby. everyone likes bigger. wut sluts.

anyway I got some big seeds comin in.


Now you're saying "wtf why?"

Things are getting serious I know. It's because I asked in a fb group "who has the biggest seeds?"

Haha.

in my ecological studies we saw 2 strategies of reproduction .

strategy "K " and strategy "R" .

one is a lot of babies with no care and a lot will die ,and the opposite is few babies but few will die .

indica strategy is to produce few seeds with a lot of reserves .and strong since the beginning .

sativas do the opposite ,thousands of seeds ,with no reserve and pretty slow at first .

english is not my first language so i won't explain more

but search on the web for development strategy K and R
