I’m trying regular seeds again at the moment. My very first grow I listened to the snobs against fem seeds. I’m a closet grower and time and space is at a premium. So for listening to the snobs after 8 weeks of veg I got 2 males in my tent. Fuck. Lucky for me while vegging those I bought a couple packs of fem seeds.
Immediately tossed out the dudes and planted fem seeds. Turned out kind of shitty but I blame myself as a new grower. Next run of some GHS white widow turned out not to bad. Never bought regular seeds since until a couple months ago. Last run of fem seeds from Relentless turned out to be my best so far. I credit the breeder more and I just didn’t love my plants too much as they say.
Now that we have enough in the cupboard of multiple flavors for a while I decided to try some regular seeds of a strain from Dark Horse. They only do reg seeds so I figure I will take a chance and see.
I started 4 seeds, after a few weeks had to pick two to grow out and toss the other two. My only other option would have been to only veg a few weeks and have small plants. So in the last few days I discovered both plants I kept are male
oh well. Culled them and yesterday threw just two beans in water and on a paper plate today.
I’m determined to grow out at least one female of this strain but my luck has been shit in the male female odds.
I lost 8 plus weeks of growing time so there’s that.
If I had room to grow out 4 plus average size plants like say a 4X4 tent I wouldn’t care. If we were not sitting on enough other smoke to last us 6 months plus I’d have to grow a couple fem seeds. Which I have and these fem seeds are E Gluy and is ass kicking weed.
I just want to grow a particular strain though that’s not available in fem seeds.
I never understood why more breeders don’t take the time to make fem versions of their regular seeds because the demand would be through the roof. IMO.
