I have always had pretty good luck with female to male ratio. I have found with regular seeds I usually get more females than males. I have done quite a few feminized seeds and have never had a single herm on me. Around a month ago maybe a little more, I planted 6 supposedly feminized autos. It was a mix bag from the place I ordered. Thought I’d try a staggered harvest run. In the last week and a half they have all showed their sex. All 6 are f*cking males! How is this even possible. I planted 2 more of these seeds back in the summer outside at my cottage and they turned out to be males. Though at the time I thought I must have mixed up the seeds. So that is 8 out of 8 feminized auto seeds planted are male. WTF wasted over a month. I won’t mention the seed company at the moment..I have emailed them the problem and they have told me to call them to work it out, so I am sure they will replace them. Even if they were regular seeds mixed by accident 8/8 males???
On a more positive note my new photo seeds are sprouting well. I always went through the trouble of soaking them in a shot glass and paper towel until they cracked. Then I was watching the show and Dude said I don’t know why people do that just plant them in the soil. Since then I have only done that and I am probably at a 29/30 seeds sprouted by doing that! Thanks Dude it is much easier now just to plant in the dirt!!
