One answer “Why are there seeds in my Critical 47 buds?

  1. It’s totally normal to be a little concerned to find seeds in your Critical 47 buds. While it’s not completely unheard of for cannabis buds to contain a few seeds, it’s generally not desirable since the seed itself will be low in THC and can affect the overall quality of the bud.

    So what could be causing this issue, and how can you prevent it from happening in the future?

    The number one cause of seeds in buds is something called “hermaphroditism”. This is when a female cannabis plant starts to show signs of male parts, such as stamens and pollen sacs. These plants are usually nicknamed “hermies” and can produce pollen, which can then be transferred to other female plants and produce seeds. To help prevent this issue, it’s important to closely monitor your plants and remove any evidence of male parts as soon as they’re visible.

    Another potential issue is that your Critical 47 plants were exposed to a male plant during the flowering period, even if they were separated by some distance. If this happens, the female plants could be pollinated and produce seeds, regardless of whether or not they start to show signs of being a hermie. To avoid this, I advise making sure all male plants are removed before you start flowering the female plants.

    Preserving the integrity of your feminized seeds is also key. When storing your feminized seeds, make sure to keep them in airtight containers and in a cool, dark area, as light and heat can cause them to become mismatched or stressed.

    When your feminized Critical 47 plants are ready to be transferred to the flowering stage, make sure to provide them with a dark environment, as light is known to cause females to become hermies.

    As you’re growing your Critical 47 plants, inspect them regularly for signs of male parts throughout the entire flowering cycle. If you notice any male parts, it’s best to remove them from your grow, as they can spread pollen and cause your female plants to produce seeds.

    Finally, it’s important to note that the best way to avoid seeds in buds is to always start with quality, feminized seeds. High-quality feminized seeds will produce female plants that are far less likely to produce seeds, so minimizing the risk and avoiding this issue before it starts is key.

    All in all, there are a few potential causes of buds with seeds and unfortunately it can be difficult to pinpoint the exact cause. However, by closely monitoring your Critical 47 plants, keeping them in dark environments, and starting with high-quality feminized seeds, you should be able to prevent this issue in the future.
