What are feminized cannabis seeds? What are the pros and cons of fems?
Feminized cannabis seeds are a type of seed that has been bred to grow only female plants. Although this may seem like an ideal scenario for growers, there are a few potential downsides to consider. One potential drawback is that feminized seeds can be less vigorous than regular seeds and may produce weaker plants. Additionally, if even one male plant is present in the grow room, it can pollinate all females, resulting in seedy buds. On the other hand, feminized seeds have a number of advantages. For starters, they save growers the hassle of having to sex their plants. Additionally, all the buds produced by feminized plants will be smokable since there are no males to produce pollen. Ultimately, whether or not to grow feminized seeds is a personal decision that depends on the grower’s goals and preferences.
How to grow Mimosa X Orange Punch from feminized seeds?
The Indica in Mimosa X Orange Punch’s DNA is evident in its growth patterns. Like many Indica-leaning cannabis hybrids, the strain doesn’t grow too tall, only reaching around 70 to 80 cm indoors and 150 to 180 cm outdoors. Instead of growing upwards, it remains pretty compact and bushes out, producing many lateral branches.
Its tightly-packed foliage will require trimming to prevent moisture accumulation and improve light exposure in the crowded center and lower growth. This is simple enough for any grower to perform, even for novices, and will significantly help avoid mold and mildew infections. In addition, thinning out the foliage lets the cannabis plant focus its energy on bud production, boosting the harvest’s quality and quantity.
Mimosa X Orange Punch is highly resistant to pests and diseases, which gives it the flexibility to be cultivated in almost any reasonably favorable environment. Nevertheless, a regular full inspection of the plant and the garden situation, especially in hot, rainy, or humid conditions, won’t hurt.
Indoors, Mimosa X Orange Punch flowers for 7 to 9 weeks. A square meter of a Sea of Green (SOG) setup can produce up to 700 grams of aromatic buds. The potential yield size in an ideal outdoor setting is even more impressive at 1500 grams per plant. Harvest season rolls around mid to late September when growing somewhere in the northern hemisphere.
