For Cannabis growers, the calyx is the initial part of a flowering marijuanabud. It is made up of a small group of leaves that spiral around the flower’s stem.
The calyx protects the plant’s reproductive organs, situated between the sepals, while also providing stability to the flower. The calyx typically appears as multiple tiny leaves sprouting from the stem at the flower’s base after the flower has blossomed.
The calyx, or calyxes (plural), is crucial in cannabiscultivation for another reason: it contains high resin concentrations.
