When growing cannabis/marijuana it is important to find out as early as possible if your plant is male or female. As we all know its Females we really want unless looking to make seeds.
Telling a female marijuana plant from a male one can be tricky for the inexperienced grower. It is, however, essential to get a knack for doing this as early as possible. Unless you’re breeding or cross-breeding marijuana, there is no reason to have male plants in the grow room. In actual fact, having a male marijuana plant in the grow room does way more harm than good.
If a male is kept in a grow room, it will eventually release a pollen which pollinates the female flower. Once this has happened the female bud will have seeds, the plant is less potent and now also full of seeds. If you have any males in the grow room, rip them out as soon as you see them. If you manage to do this, your buds will be ‘sinsemilla’ (literally meaning without seeds).
The safest way is to buy feminised seeds only, however it is still best to check to be safe, in case any males manage to slip their way into the mix.
