Cannabis growth



A seed describes an embryonic plant enclosed by an outer shell. Seeds are formed when pollen fertilizes female plants. Once the seed germinates or the root has broken through the covering, marijuana seeds are ready for planting.

Regular, feminized, and auto-flowering varieties are all available Cannabis seeds. Growers of cannabis at home frequently pick feminized seeds to ensure that the adult plant will grow female Cannabis plants.
