Feminized cannabis seeds will produce only female plants for getting buds, so there is no need to remove males or worry about female plants getting pollinated. Feminized seeds are produced by causing the monoecious condition in a female cannabis plant—the resulting seeds are nearly identical to the self-pollinated female parent, as only one set of genes is present.

Learn my fail-proof method to germinate your seeds in soil/coco or hydro.

Seedling Stage
Germinate your seeds: 1 – 7 days
