What do you do to keep seeds fresh and properly stored?
All cannabis seeds at Herbies Seeds’ warehouses are stored in a cool, dry environment and under stable temperatures of +4-6°С.
What if my seeds don’t germinate?
All seedbanks they work with guarantee maximum germination rates, meaning that at least 7 out of 10 seeds in a pack will germinate. However, cannabis seeds are a biological material and their ability to germinate can be affected by external factors. In the unlikely case that the amount of failed seeds exceeds the acceptable level, you can send us a claim and we’ll resolve the problem as soon as possible.
Why does the seed I have received look small/pale?
Seeds are a biological material, and it is quite common for them to differ from one another in size, shape, and shade. This should not affect their ability to germinate or yield the harvests described by their producers. Small seeds don’t mean small plants.
Will there be issues at customs if I order cannabis seeds online?
Herbies Seeds is constantly improving and switching up the stealth packaging solutions in their best effort to disguise the parcel and prevent customs interception. However, the latter may still occasionally occur. As parcels are sent discreetly, you do not have to worry about the negative consequences. In the worst case, you’ll receive an interception notice from the customs – take a picture of it and send it to them. Herbies Seeds will then provide a replacement for the lost parcel.
What if my plant turns hermaphrodite?
The plant can become hermaphrodite if it has been stressed during any point of the growing cycle. Stress can be caused by factors such as unsuitable temperature, over or underwatering, poor soil content, parasites, fungus and mould, stressful transplantation, excessive foliage trimming, and many others. To prevent the plant from becoming hermaphrodite, it is recommended to maintain it in a favourable environment.
What if my feminized seeds become male plants?
Feminized seeds are seeds with the ability to grow into a female plant with much higher chances than regular seeds. However, seeds and plants are live biological material – thus, it is impossible to guarantee a 100% female plant from even a feminized seed; the chances are about 97%. Plant gender depends not only on genetics but also on the surrounding environment.
You can increase the chances of your seed growing into a female plant by ensuring you take the following precautions:- Provide the plant with blue spectrum-dominant lighting (70%). - Maintain humidity levels of 70-75%. - Maintain a temperature of 20-25 ° C during the day and 18-22 ° C at night. - Increase the nitrogen content in the soil to 0.3-0.4%. Another affordable and no less effective way is described by Jorge Cervantes in his book, Marijuana Horticulture. The method is to feed plants with ethylene, which stimulates the growth and maturation of female flowers. The most affordable and reliable source of ethylene is ripe fruits, especially bananas. By placing several bundles of bananas together with plants in the grow box, the plant will be saturated with biologically active substances that contribute to its feminization. Thus, the gender of the plant will be easier to determine, and it will soon begin to produce female hormones and form female pre-flowers.
Why do plants grown from the same seed pack look different?
When two seeds from the same pack grow up into two different-looking plants, this can be explained by the phenotype of the plant – most modern strains are hybrids that combine different parent genetics. For this reason, seeds of the same strain and even from the same pack may eventually grow into different-looking plants. For example, the Serious 6 strain from Serious Seeds naturally has two phenotypes – about half of the plants will have a purple tint, while the other half will have a regular green colour. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that plants will be 50% purple and 50% green. The ratio might be 4/2, 5/1, or even 6/0. The stability of the strains is guaranteed by the seedbanks, but there can sometimes be fluctuations. Nonetheless, the chances of this happening are relatively small and should not affect the plant’s ability to grow and provide a potent harvest.
Why does the product taste different from expected?
Personal perception and impression of the product are subjective, and therefore cannot be a reason for a claim. However, you may leave feedback about this strain on the website to share your opinion with Herbies Seeds and other growers. To do this, please find the strain’s page and go to the Reviews section. It’s also always a good idea to go through reviews before placing the order to see how growers react to the flavour and other characteristics of a particular strain.
Why won’t the plant grow after sprouting or grow as tall and high-yielding as stated?
The plant is a living organism that can be affected by a wide variety of external factors that may cause it to stop growing, become ill, or suffer heavy stress, and thus provide yields of lesser quality and quantity than stated in the description. The yield, height of the plant, and other characteristics stated in the description are true for conditions that are close to perfect. It means that the plant can produce such results if it is properly treated and not overstressed – even a slight deviation from the proper conditions can cause the plant to grow differently or yield less.
