In contrast, regular seeds have a roughly 50/50 chance of producing either male or female plants. Whether feminized or regular is better for you depends on whether you only want female plants or not.
Autoflowering seeds are feminized seeds that have added ruderalis genes. The ruderalis gene produces the autoflowering trait; flowering occurs automatically at 2-4 weeks. Non-autoflowering feminized seeds produce photoperiod plants; they will flower when the hours of daylight decrease. Autoflowering feminized plants tend to be smaller, have a shorter life cycle, and allow for multiple harvests within one season.
Feminized seeds produce female plants 99% of the time. They are bred specifically to lack male…
