Autoflower male plants

Date 22nd Aug 2011   Comments 2 Comments »

Male autoflower plant is usually a threat to any cannabis grower and they don’t like to hear about male plants. It is true that these male plants are a big threat to sensimilla (seed less) cannabis flowers and usually the male plants are eradicated right after they show their sex, but looking from the other side male plants can also be useful if you want to produce seeds or create new strains.

Cannabis is one of the few plant species that have two plant sexes each different from another. In most cases all the regular plants that we know can be male or female and have no features that show their sex but cannabis plants are different in this matter as both sexes show different characteristics can be easily separated.

Regular autoflowering cannabis seeds will produce plants that have 50% chance of being a  males or females and there can be variations to this percentage but if you grow large enough sample size it will become closer and closer to the 50/50 of male and female ratio. There are some studies that show that environmental factor can influence cannabis plant sex and usually stressed plants tend to turn into males but it is not scientifically proven why this happens and in  fact it is more than a observation. Many growers say that they have a larger % of males if plants get exposed to any kind of a stress (heat, nutrients, humidity).
