Why do some cannabis seeds got tiger stripes and some don’t? So what do the tiger stripes mean?
Well, the short answer is tiger striping means the seeds are likely mature! This is always a good thing as spending your hard-earned money on immature seed sucks big time!
Does tiger stripping tell you the resulting plant will be female or male?….No it does not. Do tiger stripes tell you the plant species…Sativa, Indica, Ruderillis, or Hemp?….No it does not.
I must admit, I love producing big, fat, mature, tiger-striped seeds, but those plain jane normal-looking cannabis seeds will likely turn into great plants as well. I have grown out huge, healthy plants from the tiniest of cannabis seeds.
I have noticed when producing cannabis seed, the very first nearly pre-flower seed calyxes can produce huge, fat, very mature seeds….and many will be devoid of tiger striping.
Generally smaller pale seeds and seeds with any dents, cracks or other deformities are simply immature, and unlikely to germinate well. When purchasing cannabis seeds online, the seeds you receive in the mail should be dark in color, and pass the maturity tests below.
A much better indicator of mature cannabis seeds is the test I call the crunch test.
Take a seed and squeeze it between your thumb and finger, as you apply pressure the seed may crush and break up in your fingers. This is a clear indication of a bad seed, one that is unlikely to sprout. Any seeds that do not crush are likely mature enough to be viable.
And one last test that does work….the float test.
You, of course, would use this viability test on any seeds unless you are ready to plant them. The float test is simply putting your seeds in a glass of water. Those that you find floating after a couple of hours are more than likely duds. Immature, and unlikely to sprout. Leaving the sinkers as being more mature, and much more likely to germinate.
In conclusion, if you want to be assured you will receive viable, mature seed that will sprout, buy your cannabis seeds from JustCannabisSeed.com. Because….I guarantee my seeds to be viable. And their viability is periodically tested. And my top-shelf genetics is cheap….likely the cheapest cannabis seeds you will find online.
Does the size, weight, shape, or appearance of a cannabis seed, or any other factor about a cannabis seed indicate what sex the resulting plant will be?
Or the type of plant…auto-flower, Indica, Sativa, or Ruderellis?
How about the potency of the plant you will grow, can you tell how potent the resulting plant will be?
The quick answer is….I think not. The longer answer is, but I’m am not actually sure. This question has been asked by many marijuana growers, but think about it…If you could determine the sex of the plant by the seed, they would not take all the time and energy to produce feminized seed.
Cannabis seeds come in many sizes and shapes, some are determined by the type of cannabis (to a point), but it seems only certain plants, and it does not seem to hold true to differentiate Sativa from Indica, nor Autoflowering cannabis from any other cannabis.
Hell, you can grow two of the same plants, one big and healthy with big fat seeds, anther plant from the same seeds can be small and spindly, and the seeds it produces can be small as well.
Health and longevity of the plant’s cycle determined the size of the seeds as well…in my experience.
I guess Dutch Passion came up with the very first feminized cannabis plants in the ’90s. Feminization was a great tool for cannabis bud growers. No more wasting time on growing males out till they showed sex, and then having to dispatch half the crop you just grew
I personally have grown great crops of cannabis from small very undersized seed and big fat first seeds. Too, when one is producing seed the very first seeds the plant makes generally become much bigger and fatter than the seeds produced later in the seed cycle.
I will be doing a fairly extensive experiment as I grow out about 10-20 strains of auto-flowers this spring. I will compare the seeds, try to pick which will be male and female. I will mark all of them, grow them out and post my results here…be sure to bookmark or follow to see those results.
I’m looking forward to it and it should be interesting!
So you have ordered and received your cannabis seeds, and if you bought them online form me they were cheap! 🙂 So you don’t want to grow them all out right away. What to do? How should cannabis seeds be stored to retain their viability? Here are four things you can do:
Keep them dry
Keep them sealed airtight
Keep them cool
Keep them in darkness
Keep Your Cannabis Seeds Dry
Make sure your cannabis seeds are stored dry. A moisture percentage in the 2-3% range is ideal for storing your cannabis seeds. A desiccant can be placed in the storage container with your seeds. Pre-packaged desiccants or silica gel packs are readily available online.
Rice can also be used is as an effective desiccant, but should be replaced periodically. The use of a desiccant when storing seeds greatly improves their stability, longevity, and viability.
Keep Your Cannabis Seeds Sealed Airtight
This is a very important step when storing your seeds. If the seed bank you ordered your cannabis seeds from sends them in a sealed container, perhaps containing a desiccant, you can simply leave them unopened for long term storage.
When storing your own seed long term consider purchasing a vacuum sealer. IMO this is the best way if you do not need to access the seeds for some time.
Plastic containers are not recommended, nor are baggies. For long term storage glass containers with sealable lids are best.
If you need to get to them from time to time a glass canning jar with a sealable lid is a good choice.
Overall, glass containers are highly recommended for optimum storage conditions. They are suitable for long- and short-term storage.
A glass jar with a glass lid is ideal, but glass canning jars with metal lids work fine too. Reusable, airtight, and easily assailable long and short term storage of your precious cannabis seeds.
Keep Your Cannabis Seeds Cool
When storing your cannabis seed temperature is another important factor to consider.
If you are storing your seeds for just a few years room temperature can work well, making sure they are airtight and in darkness
Some people keep their seeds in a refrigerator. This can work well, but you must keep in mind refrigerators are somewhat humid, if your seeds are stored there they must be in airtight containers.
Many also keep their seeds long term in a freezer, this method I do not recommend. Freezing your seeds long term can actually destroy tissue and damage the seeds.
If you decide to go this route the seeds must be airtight, and care must be taken to not thaw and refreeze, as this is especially hard on seeds stored frozen.
Keep Stored Cannabis Seeds In Darkness
Light has a way of deteriorating things, and cannabis seeds are no exception. Always store your cannabis seeds (no matter where) in complete darkness.
I like storing mine in a drawer in my dresser, closed and dark. If you decide on a refrigerator or a freezer that should still be kept in complete darkness.
Cannabis seeds are natural living entities, and although they are hardy and lasting, care must be taken in order to keep them longer then nature intended.
The cannabis seeds sold here onsite are not only cheap, but they are also fresh, and their viability is tested. They are also the highest quality genetics you will find anywhere online.
Store your weed seeds properly and you can enjoy the fruits of your cannabis husbandry for many years to come!
I hesitated to write this post, cause I didn’t want to be accused of false advertising.
There is another post online with close to the same title, the difference between my post and his…my seeds really are the cheapest. His pot seeds were over 10 bucks a seed!
I offer some auto flower seeds for only a buck a seed! That is cheap, wholesale pricing, you will be hardpressed to find anywhere else online.
One site that comes up for the query ‘cheapest pot seeds online’ exclaims they have seeds as cheap as $9.00 a seed! Now that seems like false advertising.
The only other way to get cannabis seeds this cheap is to buy them in bulk. You can find even cheaper bulk cannabis seeds at BulkWeedSeed.com.
And for what it’s worth most of my regular prices are still cheaper then some wholesale pot seed prices offered online. If you are a beginner especially you owe it to yourself to check out both the sour 60 auto regular seeds and the lowryder 2 auto regular seed. And, of course, the popular Free Seed Offer. It just makes sense to start with some inexpensive pot seeds in case you have problems with your first grow.
Of course, the very cheapest seed you will find anywhere online is my free seed offer. In my free seed offer, you will receive over 50 free seeds, all you have to do is pay a small handling and shipping charge. This will come out to less the $.50 a seed…now that is how one buys cheap cannabis seeds online!
Even my higher priced cannabis seeds are cheap. Most seed banks charge around 10 bucks for most of the seeds they sell. They will say how their genetics justifies their price. I would disagree, I sell many of the very same genetics, only none of my seed prices are at that set point.
I can grow thousands of seeds in one seed grow, when I do that, I’m going to pass the savings on to you.
I want to attract customers that come back to buy their seeds from me again and again. I strive for return customers. I give lots of free seeds with each order, and that only makes the seeds you buy from me even cheaper!
I don’t think I can be accused of false advertising…because, from my research, I do offer the cheapest cannabis seeds you will find online.
Whether you call it marijuana, pot, weed, or even ganja, or the correct name cannabis…everybody always seems to want that purple bud! Big, dank, purple buds, covered in trichomes!
Some plants are prone to developing just purple flowers, while others will sport purple leaves, and even stems. I think a cannabis plant is a beautiful plant, especially purple ones.
And I will admit, it seems that often purple buds are the best buds. I used to always separate the purple bud from the green, as everyone clambered for the purple.
But, why does some pot turn purple? What causes cannabis to turn purple?
What Causes Purple Cannabis Strains
There are about 20-30 purple strains of weed available to purchase online today. The seeds of these strains will produce plants that will have that beautiful purple color, which can include the stems, leaves, and buds.
Cold Temperatures Can Cause Purple Strain Coloration
Years ago most of the purple coloration was caused by the cooler temperatures the plants can be exposed to during the fall when they are maturing.
Selective Breeding Can Create Purple Cannabis Plants
Through selective breeding, plants have been developed that turn purple even without colder temps. Although most purple strains of cannabis will turn even darker purple if exposed to those cooler temperatures.
I carry several cannabis strains on site that will grow out and display some of that beautiful purple color:
(Blue Tahoe Cheese F4 x Granddaddy Purple F2) is a mostly Indica hybrid (80% Indica /20% Sativa). This strain has a high THC level with a soothing head and body high together.
Expect effects similar to warming body buzz, mind relief, sleeplessness, and hunger, this strain was made to chill you out while keep you going. With a very grape-ish cheese smell and taste, this strain is perfect for those who want a strain that taste like it smells.
Great for battling chronic pain, stress, PTSD and depression. Flowers between 8 to 10 weeks. And expect some of these to turn a beautiful shade of purple upon maturation.
Sour Lowryder 2 (Sour Skunk Auto x Lowryder 2) is an auto-flowering Indica dominant cannabis strain that is ready to harvest in 63 days from seed.
This is the strain that set the benchmark for commercially grown auto-flowers. This makes Lowryder 2 Autoflowering weed of interest to the commercial grower as well as the hobbyist.
This strain grows well in Greenhouse, Indoors, Outdoors conditions. Sour Lowryder 2 comes in 2 distinct phenos, the green, and the purple. I have separated these phenos so you are likely to get beautiful purple plants from these seeds. Sour Lowryder 2 boasts a high (15-20%) THC levels and low CBD levels (0-1%).
Lowryder 2 Auto strain was the second in a line of successful auto-flowering strains introduced, following the original Lowryder 1. With the introduction of the Lowryder 2 strain, there was improved potency, flavor and yield when compared to the original auto strain.
Following several generations of selective in-breeding Lowryder 2 has been fully-stabilized. With two distinct phenos. The green pheno, and the beautiful purple pheno.
Therapeutically this strain has been found to be beneficial to sufferers of ADD and ADHD. And is excellent meds for pain, stress, insomnia or nausea.
(Lowryder x Masterkush x Blueberry x Sour Bubble) from the original breeders, Mdanzig is a super-fast auto-flowering hybrid created from a mesh of celebrity strains and designed for speed. She will finish in 60 days, hence the name “Sour 60”. Indoors, with a light regiment of 18/6, or 12/12, she will do fantastic, but she excels under 24 hours of constant light.
Perfect for vegetative rooms, or areas with short summers, Sour 60 is so fast, you can grow several harvests in one short season outdoors. As with most autos, we recommend growing them naturally (no stress training, or topping).
There are two distinct phenotypes, the Donkey Dong and the Purple. DD completes with only a few buds and one huge fat cola. The purple comes with lots of bright purple, dense, frosty buds similar to a mini Purple Kush.It is the perfect medicine for pain, stress, insomnia, and nausea. Also good for PTSD. Flowering period is 60 days from seedlings.
Paul’s Purple Fire cannabis strain is his original signature strain and one of his all-time best Indica hybrids from Newguy420seeds, Pauls Purple Fire (BX1F2) is an SFV OG back-cross.
Purple Fire (SFV OG x Grape Ape) x AK-48 x Original Grape 48 and then back-crossed back to SFV OG again. Several years had gone into the perfection of this strain, making it a very popular and sought after strain.
This new PPF is even better than before. If you like hardball buds similar to Granddaddy Purple, you will love this strain with its loud AND spicey aroma, hard-hitting Indica buzz and short flowering time.
And, did I say…the buds will turn a beautiful dark purple…they can almost look black.
Great for battling pain, loss of appetite, combating stress or insomnia. Also good for PTSD. The flowering period is about 8 to 9 weeks.
Paul’s Blackberry Fire is a combination of Blackberry Diesel x Pauls Purple Fire An accident in the grow room brought us this wondrous beauty.
Paul’s Blackberry Fire has a heavy Indica high with the ultimate couch lock. Another terrific new addition to Paul’s top shelf strains, it has a very strong diesel/berry fire smell and an excellent taste as well.
Paul’s Blackberry Fire does very well indoors or outdoors and is heavy yielding very potent strain either way. Expect big beautiful purple buds!
Excellent meds for anxiety, pain, stress, insomnia or nausea. Also great for battling for PTSD, ADD and ADHD, the Flowering period is between 8 to 9 weeks.
This great strain was developed by master breeder Paul at New420GuySeeds.org.
While most cannabis is still some shade of green. There are plenty of plants available that will give you those big, dense, purple buds everyone craves.
At this point in time, all you need to do is choose the strains that are prone to developing that distinct purple coloration. And, in case I havent mentioned it lately, you always get the best top-shelf genetics here from JCS, and all for some of the cheapest prices, you will find anywhere! Visit my seed shop to see what I mean.
JustCannabisSeed.com~The Home of Cheap High-Quality Cannabis Seeds Online
With cannabis becoming more mainstream, and accepted, both socially and legally. Cannabis seed banks are popping up all over. Many of these seed banks still charge those high prices for the seeds they offer.
Most of these seed banks are simply marijuana seed resellers. They don’t produce the seed they sell, they buy all their cannabis seed wholesale, and then simply resell at a profit. And, at the going rate of $10.00 a seed the profit is enormous!
I’m doing things a bit different here at Just Cannabis Seed, you see I produce many of the seeds I sell, and although I do buy seed wholesale as well, I don’t need to enjoy that huge profit margin, because I would rather pass the savings on to you, my customer.
