What’s the difference between photoperiod and autoflowering seeds?

Feminised photoperiod seeds are different from autoflowering genetics in that, while the latter flowers automatically without having to change the light cycle, the former will only flower if the light cycle is changed. Autoflowering seeds have a life cycle of slightly more than two months. Photoperiod seeds require 4 months instead. Autoflowering seeds owe their amazing speed and autoflowering nature...

How many types of marijuana are there?

Despite there being thousands of cannabis hybrids, as many as breeders can create, they can all be classified into three large groups: Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis. Each one of these strains has its own unique phenotypes, terpene profiles and chemical features, and so do the hybrids resulting from them. The following chart shows the most distinctive characteristics of sativa, indica and ruderalis genetics:...

There are seeds in my buds, why is this?

Because the plant’s been pollinated. At LaMota Seeds, we guarantee 99. 9% feminised plants. However, if you don’t act with caution, particularly when growing outdoors, they can be pollinated by male plants and end up producing seeds. Pollen particles float through the air and can pollinate female plants located kilometers away. This is not a common thing but it can happen.

My plants have produced male flowers, why is this?

If your feminised cannabis seeds have developed male flowers, it could mean they’re hermaphrodites. Despite guaranteeing at a 99 % rate the growth of LaMota Seeds feminised plants, there may be instances, depending on the growing conditions, where some isolated individuals turn into hermaphrodites. To avoid this, you have to make sure the room's temperature doesn't increase a lot.

What’s the flowering phase?

The flowering phase of a cannabis plant is when the so-long-awaited buds appear and fully develop. With photoperiod plants, the stage kicks off when the light cycle is switched and the number of hours of darkness is raised. If you’re growing outdoors, it generally coincides with the end of summer-beginning of autumn. Indoors, it is the grower who can decide when to switch from 18/6 to 12/12, for...

What is CBD?

CBD or cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid present in some cannabis strains. It counteracts the effects of THC, reducing its psychoactive levels and other negative effects such as the cotton mouth sensation, the tachycardia and the altered perception of time. Thanks to this substance, the adverse consequences of THC are moderated and so recreational users with lower tolerance to THC have a...

How to tell a plant is male or female?

Unlike most plants, cannabis is a dioecious plant, that is to say, it features specimens of separate sexes (female and male). Female plants are best for producing buds while males are in charge of pollination. Unless you’re a highly experienced grower capable of recognizing growth patterns during the vegetative phase, it isn't until the flowering that you’ll be able to discern your plant's...

What’s the vegetative phase?

The vegetative phase of a cannabis plant is also known as the growth phase. It starts as soon as the plant stops being a seedling and its length will vary if we're growing indoors or outdoors. In the open air, the vegetative phase often coincides with the spring-summer months, right when the sunlight is more intense. During this stage, the plant will grow and develop a strong stem and vigorous branches...

Which cannabis seeds have therapeutic properties?

All cannabis seeds, whether they’re THC-rich or CBD-rich or rich in any other cannabinoid, could be therapeutic.

My plant is not flowering, why is this?
