11/13/21 Free Seed Grow
Hi all, I am growing out some more seeds for the very popular Free Cannabis Seed Offer here on JCS. These will all be autoflower cannabis seeds.
Be sure to get on my email list to assure you receive notification when these seeds are ready. I also give out email list exclusive discounts, and deals, so don’t miss out on those.
I have decided to offer two types of free cannabis seed offers….one will be only autoflowering seeds, and the other will be photo cannabis seeds. I am growing the autos as we speak. The other plants in this image are MI5, Sour 60, and Blue Haze auto-flowers that I am growing out for seed for you guys.
I am having some fun with it….growing all the plants I will let produce seed in just one 10 gallon pot. I will be updating this post throughout the grow, so you can see the plants that will produce the seeds for those free seed orders.
Here are a list of the genetics that are involved….Sour 60 Autos, MI5 autos, Blue Haze Autos, Sour Lowryder Autos, Blueberry Autos, and even a few Afghani Autos thrown in for good measure.
So here is what I have done, I planted several of each strain, then just let them grow, the resulting seeds will be a mix of all these genetics…but basically they will all be either a pure auto strain, or an F1 hybrid of two different autos. There will end up being about 11 plants in that one pot…..2 males, and 9 females.
They will produce some awesome plants that I am sure you guys will enjoy.
Update….11/17/21….it is amazing how fast cannabis can grow if it is simply fed properly. These are only 4 days older then the last pics…. I feed my plants regularly, and I added a layer of compost to the top of the soil with these.
I am having fun with this grow and growing them in this one pot all together. Makes it easy to grow them out under only one light. I would get alot more seed if I had transplanted them, but we shall see….
As you can see they are loving life, should put on some good size, even crowded together in the same pot. The ‘trick’ to growing plants with limited space for their roots is to feed them all the nutrients they can use. I should have one of those grow contests in the Dixie cups…
Too, you will notice I covered the compost with a layer of perlite. This not only helps to control fungus gnats that I have had some issues with, but also reflects the light back up to the leaves.
I also like to water from the bottom, which can also prevent many of the problems you can encounter in an inside grow. I plan on updating this post about once a week, with new pics of their progress….so check back often to see how they are doing.
11/23/21…They are maturing very quickly it seems. Here is some pics of them now, and these will be the ones I let flower out, They are beginning to show sex, although some will be slower then others of course. I will allow 2 different males to have their way with the girls.
Does anyone else wash your cannabis plants periodically?
The area I live in is very dry, so I like to wash the leaves of my plants to maximize photosynthesis.
You might be surprised at how much light can be blocked by a film of dust on the leaves.
The washing pretty much ends once I have pollen moving around the room, until the males are done, then I give them a one lash bath till their seeds are mature.
I have these under a 20/4 light regime, for rapid growth. They certainly are not disappointing…
Here are those images…
11/25/21…Well, I guess I am really keeping up on these updates!
Anyways these auto plants are maturing quickly, and looking pretty good.
I am getting some leaf curl, which many times indicates your growing environment is too hot. But not in this case, and I have seen this before, truthfully not sure what causes it. If you have a good idea tell me your thoughts in a comment.
I feed these plants about every watering, plants like all living things need food.
I find the simplest, and easiest way to provide the food they need is while I water, I can look at the plants and see if they are hungry each time I water them a bit.
Plants, like people, animals, and most living things are individuals, some may require a lot of food, while others not so much. I like to push my plants a bit with fertilizer so they can reach their full potential.
If I am growing plants in their own pots I like to push them till that one plant that is the first to show signs of burn….does. This plant then can become the one that shows me I am using the right amounts of fertilizer. If that plant shows burn, you know you need to back off a bit with the ferts.
When growing seed I also feed a full spectrum fertilizer throughout their lives as they need the nutrients to produce the best seed.
I could go on and on….but here are some images of them after only a few days I see…..
Another image as they grow on….11/27/21
I have always been curious about leaves that curl a bit like that. I know that heat can be the culprit, although that is certainly not the case here.
Some plants seem to do this, and then come out of it without any intervention on my part.
It falls under my category of….’Don’t sweat the small stuff.’
Anyways, as I said before they seem to be maturing rapidly, seeing how they are only about 3 weeks old.
Check out my short YouTube videos of this grow if you like. I would share the vids here, but YouTube blocks them as being age sensitive. Anyways here is the link to my YouTube channel.
12/2/21 update….Well they are maturing, and getting to know one another.
The plants are basically loving life, and growing rather large for being crowded together as they are. I will get a good number of seeds from this grow for those free seed orders you guys love.
Maybe I should have kept track of who was who in this grow, their are a couple of females that have been impressive. I think they may be the Blue Haze auto-flowering strain, but again not too sure.
Her are a few new images of these plants as they continue to grow out….
And the whole group….
12/8/21….The free seed grow goes on…
The speed at which these plants are maturing is surprising me. I am not one to count the days of a grow, nor to keep much in the way for records at all. I simply respond to what the plants tell me they need when caring for them.
These seeds will likely be ready in about one more month or so. One thing I love about autos. 60 days to mature seed is fast!
One thing to keep in mind when looking at seeded cannabis, and perhaps the reason you do not see many images of these plants on seed banks…..is the buds will not attain the size of unseeded, or cannabis grown as sinsemilla.
Seeded plants put their energy towards maturing their seed, rather then stacking on more flowers.
When judging a seeded plant, look more at the plant structure, rather then it’s size. Flowers that are exposed to pollen when their very first hairs appear will simply not get as big as flowers grown as sinsemilla.
Here are some updated images of the grow I took today….
And the whole group….
12/14/21…Time to say goodbye to the males. They have fulfilled their life’s desire….pollinated the females to make seed and have enjoyed the satisfaction of procreation.
They have been very viral, and have done their jobs like a boss. All the females, although small (seeded plants just do not attain the size of unseeded plants, as they put their effort and resources into maturing their seed) are fully seeded.
You may notice a bit of leaf discoloration, not to worry though. I believe it is simply a PH issue, and will not hurt the seeds produced at all, nor affect the genetics of these plants at all.
At this point in their lives they will give their seed everything they have….literally! Plants, like all mothers will give their very lives for their offspring….the truest love this world has to offer in my opinion.
So here they are one last time….
Well the males are now gone and these are some of the buds that are maturing their seeds for free cannabis seed orders. I expect the seeds to be ready in just a couple of weeks.
The plants themselves can become hard to look at as they are basically dying of old age while maturing their seed.
As they age they will begin to yellow, and finally begin to wither….all the while leaving behind beautiful seeds to carry on their genetics.
It won’t be long now, and if you want a heads up when these are done and I put them on site, be sure you are signed up for my email list.
Here are some of those buds….be aware seeded buds do not attain the size of unseeded buds, as the plant puts it’s resources into maturing it’s seed rather then stacking on more flowers.
You can however get a good estimation of how well the flowers will be crystalized…..
Well the free seed grow is approaching maturity.
So I am giving those who subscribe to my blog a heads up.
I expect to harvest them in about 1 week, then a week or two till they are dry, and ready to offer to you guys.
Be sure to sign up for my email list (there is a sign up form in the footer of any page) so that you will be the first to know.
I plan on giving my email list the first crack at them.
And of course I will make note of their availability here on this post as well.
Update….12/31/21….The mother plants have been whacked, and are hanging to dry, and cure a bit. They will be available in a week or two.
