Like any other crops or plants, Cannabis Ruderalis also needs to be germinated in order to obtain the end products. The germination process of Cannabis Ruderalis is almost similar to that of any other plant. Some of the key features related to the germination of seeds of Cannabis Ruderalis area as follows:
The Cannabis Ruderalis plant has the capacity or the ability to autoflower. Majority of the breeders around the world want to take advantage of the autoflowering property of the Ruderalis to have higher yields. However, focus needs to be given to the fact, that, higher quantities of Ruderalis strains needs to be produced in order to have substantial amount of Ruderalis crops. The processes of forming substantial amount of Ruderalis strains are similar to that of other plants and require no special techniques.
The most important aspect while growing Ruderalis marijuana is the need to buy the regular form of seeds and not the feminized ones. These seeds could either be males or females. However, larger quantities of both can be produced in 50:50. However, there are certain environmental factors that are responsible for the proper maturation and germination of the Ruderalis strains.
First important step is to spot the preflower which in turn will help the breeder to identify male and female plants. The age of autoflowering varies in different strains of the Ruderalis. It might need 4 weeks time for the male to come up with their pollen sacs while on the other hand females might need 5 weeks time to germinate. The process of forming seeds could be simple with the presence of one male plant pollinating all the females. However Cannabis breeders select the plants from their stature of growth and aroma so that best form of marijuana is produced out of them.
When the flowering phase is reached, the requirement of supply of nutrients will also change. The vegetative phase slows down at this time. Plants require less amount of supply of nitrogen but more phosphorus and potassium at this stage. The female starts producing kolas at the junction of branches. This is followed by the swelling of seed pods. Finally the flowers start to be ready for the purpose of harvesting the pistils and will also become dark in nature. The seed pods start swelling with the presence of resin and also the trichomes of THC.
