There is no method to force a female out of regular seeds. That's why they are regular. If you want a guaranteed female grow feminized seeds.How to determine the sex of a plant or how should i proceed when planting regular seed so i can pop a female?
Grow seed until you can clone it.How to determine the sex of a plant
And how would one go about getting those kits in the U.K.?I advise ponying up for test kits. It makes quick easy work of what's what, and you can figure out the females before week 3.
Don’t you have to send them back for them to run the tests?Email Farmer Freeman or check their site if they send kits international.
Yes. And international mail can be spendy unless you're sending a standard letter. Even a small package can cost a decent amount in postage.Don’t you have to send them back for them to run the tests?
Not to mention getting caught sending cannabis material through the mail system in the U.K. to international borders where you need to declare who sent what lol.Yes. And international mail can be spendy unless you're sending a standard letter. Even a small package can cost a decent amount in postage.
I will grow some mexican jalisco so i don t know if it s femenisedIf you don't want males then grow feminized seeds. If all you have is regular seeds then just grow them and pluck the males when they show which is usually sooner than the females. You'll have plenty of time to remove them before they drop pollen. Or just do the logical thing and keep a male to pollinate a female and make your own seeds so you don't have to keep buying them.
I wouldn't bother paying for a test. You might as well just spend the money on feminized seeds instead of paying for a test. That way you're assured of a female plant. All a test is going to do is tell you if it's male or female. What if you send in samples and they all test as male? You're out $20 a sample to find out. You could end up having all your samples testing male. Then you're back to square one.
Well I hope you find some females. If the seeds are the real deal I would definitely want both male and female plants so you could make more. Did you get the seeds from TLT?I will grow some mexican jalisco so i don t know if it s femenised
Yeah i will buy from themWell I hope you find some females. If the seeds are the real deal I would definitely want both male and female plants so you could make more. Did you get the seeds from TLT?
Those things are pretty damn expensive. Seems like a waste of money. Commercial outfits are not running regular seeds and spending $5000-$10,000 on some device to find out if a plant is male or female makes no sense for someone growing at home. I grow regular seeds almost exclusively. I don't see the need for that device.If you were growing a fair amount of regular seeds, a spectrometer wouldn't be a bad investment.
Raman spectroscopy enables highly accurate differentiation between young male and female hemp plants - PlantaMain conclusion Hand-held Raman spectroscopy can be used for highly accurate differentiation between young male and female hemp plants. This differentiation is based on significantly different concentration of lutein in these plants. Abstract Last year, a global market of only industrial hemp...link.springer.com
"Our findings show that Raman spectroscopy enables differentiation between male and female plants with 90% and 94% accuracy on the level of young and mature plants, respectively. Such analysis is entirely non-invasive and non-destructive to plants and can be performed in seconds using a hand-held spectrometer."
I like to time the date with a numerically pleasing and easy birthdate, better if timed with a good full moon and a super high tide. I like to open the fridge where I keep my seeds and grab the package out reverse-underhanded while playing some Barry White in the background. Then have a loved and trusted female/wife/friend select the seeds the be planted.How to determine the sex of a plant or how should i proceed when planting regular seed so i can pop a female?
