whats the difference between feminized and automatic weed seeds

Regular seeds can grow into male or female plants, so if you do not want your males to fertilize your females, you have to discard them manually. Feminized seeds eliminate this need as every plant is female. However, this is not always ideal, especially if you intend to produce seeds for hybrid cannabis varieties.

There is one significant difference between auto-flowering and feminized cannabis seeds. Auto-flowers offer 100% automatic flowering. However, you cannot clone such plants, so you need to purchase new seeds every time. With feminized seeds, you can achieve cloning and have as many plants as you need. Experts also note that auto-flowering yields are less potent than those from feminized seeds.

Like any other plant, growing cannabis requires insights, especially since authorities require documentation and tracking from the farm to the final product. If you are planning to grow marijuana for commercial sale, you need more expertise to produce standard quality products. Some farmers know about growing auto-flowering plants, while others only grow feminized seeds. As such, it is recommendable to choose farms that specialize in a specific strain or variety. If you are starting a personal garden, it is recommendable to read through cannabis cultivation and understand the unique requirements of different strains.

The main differences between feminized and autoflowering marijuana varieties are summarized in 3 items: morphological, non-visible and cultivation ones:

In outdoor cultivation the feminized ones have only one growing season, in the northern hemisphere from March to October approximately. With the automatic varieties you can do several crops a year outdoors, as they are not based on the light hours of the crops about 3 months after germination, regardless of the season.

The feminized ones can form different types of leaf, depending on its percentage of indica or sativa it can be wider or narrower, with more or less leaflets. However, automatic strains usually form the typical ruderalis leaf, with usually 5 or 7 leaflets and medium width.

The bud density is usually much higher in feminized varieties than in auto ones, especially in feminized Indica ones.
