With the general hype surrounding the relatively recent developments of feminized and autoflowering seeds, you’d be forgiven for maybe thinking that regular cannabis seeds are somehow less exciting. You’d also be wrong. Regular seeds contain endless possibilities for growers to experiment with.
Can you name all of the parts of the cannabis plant? Can you explain what they all do? Do you want to be able to? This article gives an introduction to the anatomy of a cannabis plant, and whether you are a novice or a more experienced gardener, we hope you find it entertaining and interesting!
Cannabis passes through a series of stages in its life. The most important of these are the germination, seedling, growth and flowering stages. Each stage brings its own challenges. Novice growers need to be aware of these, to be sure of giving their plants the attention and care that they deserve.
After the three main nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous), magnesium is the most crucial secondary nutrient for healthy growth and development of cannabis plants. Without it, plants wither, fail to thrive, and eventually die. What does a cannabis plant with magnesium deficiency look like, and what can be done to help it recover? Help is at hand!
Wondering how to tell the difference between indoor and outdoor cannabis seeds? Trying to work out which ones are easiest? Confused as to why Sensi Seeds doesn’t use ‘Indoor’ and ‘Outdoor’ as categories? This article answers all these questions and more!
Growing cannabis is surprisingly simple: all you need are a few seeds, pots, water and light. If, however, you want to maximise yields and also save time, you will do best with a Sea of Green. No other growing approach will allow you to harvest so much in so little time.
Even where cannabis is legal, in many places you are only allowed to have a limited number of plants. Those who want to maximise their yield in the face of this restriction would do best with a Screen of Green. A simple piece of netting will stimulate sideways growth and bud formation. The result: plenty of fat, highly potent buds.
Gardening on a budget? Keen to choose natural methods? Concerned about the environment? Prefer not to purchase fertilizers advertised for growing cannabis? There are many good reasons for making your own fertilizer. This post has been brought to you by the letters N, P, and K!
Cannabis can grow in a remarkably wide range of environmental conditions, and naturalised populations have sprung up all over the world. Now, seed companies have developed outdoor strains that are not only able to grow and thrive in specific habitats, but that are also able to consistently produce cannabinoids.
It is a nice tradition at Dutch seed company Sensi Seeds to honour people with their own namesake strain. Two well-known example are none other than cannabis legend Jack Herer and former smuggler „Mr. Nice“ Howard Marks, two legends who are sadly no longer with us. In 2006, it was the turn of US American cannabis expert author, grower and activist Ed Rosenthal. He has since been enjoying his Sensi Seeds namesake strain: ‘Ed Rosenthal Super Bud’. In this article, we will cover the story behind the strain and take you along on a growing adventure.
When a strain legend such as Skunk #1 is launched as an automatic version, the bar is set very high of course. So Ellis D. was almost bursting with curiosity when he conducted an indoor grow test with Skunk #1 Automatic to check how close it would come to the original Skunk #1 in terms of quality. In this article, you’ll learn about all the relevant strain facts and the grow test’s outcome.
The cannabis outdoor season is on, or at least is has been so for a few months in the Northern Hemisphere. So many things to prepare and to fawn over on one’s way towards Spring and Summer! Perhaps this is why many cannabis growers find themselves seedling-less come June. But for every grower issue, we have a seed bank solution! Check out in this article our top 3 of Sensi Seeds outdoor cannabis strains you can still plant in June.
While women hold about 25% of top management positions overall in US companies, but head up less than 5% of companies, the cannabis industry, the new kid on the block, boasts 63% women in top management positions, of whom 36% are the owners or heads of companies, according to a 2016 questionnaire in Marijuana Business Daily.
Every single year, we are proud and excited to announce Cannabis Liberation Day, also known as “Cannabis Bevrijdingsdag” in its birth place: the Netherlands. For the 2017 edition of this cannabis consumer-focused event, we are counting on you. Read on to find out more about the program, and about our exclusive, fun contest!
As a long-standing grow shop employee, I have had to look at disappointed faces from behind the counter time and time again, as ambitious home growers have only managed to produce a few sorry buds instead of the giant harvest they had been expecting. Usually, these failed harvests were caused by a combination of inexperience and avoidable mistakes.
The Sensi Seeds community of growers is a vast and colourful one. We are always happy to read their grow reports and strain reviews, and curious to learn more about their experiences navigating the ever-changing topic of cannabis cultivation!
Is current cannabis cultivation sustainable over the long term? What can we do to help in any way? Let’s go over some of the problems and some of the solutions to make our crops ready for a future with a shortage of energy and raw materials.
In the - often illegal - grower circles, a rule of thumb has emerged, partly thanks to numerous grower reports in hemp magazines, of "one watt per gram" as the standard for efficient growing under artificial light. But one should not be too dogmatic about applying this formula. Why not? Find out in this article.
As a result of the Anthropocene mass extinction event, scientists estimate that 68 percent of plant species are threatened with extinction. Across the world, a pitched battle is being fought against the twin forces of climate change and habitat destruction to save the world’s plant species – and seed banks and repositories are a crucial part of the effort.
