3 Reasons to Include a Seeder Crop with Your Medical Marijuana Garden

Advisory: Please check your current State laws regarding the cultivation of Marijuana. Having said that, growing Medical Marijuana will probably be the botanical highlight of your life. From seed to harvest may take half a year for some outdoor farmers, and that’s quite a relationship time wise. Many growers refer to their plants as “my babies.” This is not surprising, considering plants are alive, and go through a life cycle similar to humans.

A big similarity is the reproduction phase, and because of this, there are 3 reasons why you should include a seeder crop.

First of all, you may have had difficulty obtaining viable seeds to initiate your growing experience. Why deal with an absence of seeds each season? Your Medical Marijuana garden is capable of providing you with an over abundance of seeds for future growth.

Many individuals think they need to order a pack of 10 seeds for an exorbitant amount of dough, risking a season and expense on that little pack. What if you had mason jars full of your own seeds? I don’t know about you, but I prefer the packed mason jars of seeds.

Secondly, if you’ve done research or talked to a lot of recreational smokers, you probably heard of the term, “sinsemilla.” This is a Spanish word meaning, seedless. Just like the seedless grapes, and my favorite- seedless watermelons, seedless buds of Medicinal pot are the most sought after form of Marijuana. Sinsemilla, or “ses” is the growing of female only plants. If a male plant pops up in the garden, he is cut down before he can pollinate the females. Ses, is a double edged sword. Yes, you will have larger seedless buds on one hand, but on the other hand, no more seeds. Additionally, many growers who have painstakingly removed seeds from fertilized females, noticed something. The smoked shake (what’s left after the seeds are taken) is an amazing high. Apparently when the female plant endures the complete pollination experience, she produces something special, psycho-actively, in her fertilized state. Other growers may swear by the Sinsemilla trip, you’ll have to decide. In any event, you get seeds, and a fantastic cerebral experience.

Third reason to include a seeder crop with your Medical Marijuana garden is – drum roll please – you will now have seeds that are indigenous to your backyard or grow area! If you’ve ever seen huge Sunflower plants, as they are dying, hanging their heads down –

They are getting ready to drop goo-gobs of seeds around that yard. Not only will there be copious amounts of seeds, but they will be genetically pre-disposed to the soil, weather, and cultivation conditions of that environment. Those Suns will be growing like crazy. This is what you want for your “babies”, I mean your Medical Marijuana. Let your plants mature, get used to seeing the sex differences, and develop your own strain of Medical Marijuana. Your F1 seeds, or next generation seeds, will be unique to your patch of earth.

Finally, after your female plants are fertilized, wait until the seeds are splitting their sheath or protective pouches, then harvest. After 4-6 weeks of dry/cure, when the plants and seeds retain no moisture, you may then get the mason jars out. Caution: if you store your seeds with ANY moisture, you’ll develop mildew and fungus, obviously detrimental to your seeds. As a precaution, periodically lay your seeds out and let them get air, ensuring that they are dry. When you re-store them, keep the seeds in a cool, dark area.

Give your seeds a name like, “purple rain”, “Cali9”, or “Reggie’s Rogue” –after all, new strains need names. Grow American.
