bag seed weed plants

Depending on where you are in the world you may or may not be able to grow naturally. The plant requires a lot of light in order to keep it from flowering early, if where you are you get less than 12 hours of light then the plant will start to flower while very young and small so the yield and maturity of the product is not going to be good. You can use a single CFL to adjust if you don’t get enough natural light, i.e. if you only get 10 hours of daylight then use a CFL for about 6 hours so the plant won’t flower and keep growing until you chose to flower it.

Growing bag seed marijuana in the window?

Hey there everyone. I just had a few questions to ask about a very simple first-time grow to get familiar with some of the aspects of growing. I have two bag seed I got from some shake earlier and wanted to plant them just for the experience (and the oh so anticipated plucking of a few buds). So, a few questions to follow:

I don’t plan on selling or making a big plant, this is just meant to be small and for my own experience and smoking (if possible). Can I just put a seed in a small potting plant and trim it and train it to stay small enough to, say, only need transferring once to a less than 9 inch pot?

I don’t want to try this with light bulbs or other complex grow room methods, so would they grow properly just with the sunlight through a pretty sunny window sill? (I don’t need to hide it in a closet, though I have ample space in a perfect closet just for doing so when flowering or just to put in at night, and my neighbor uses it medicinally so I don’t need to worry about anybody seeing it in the window.)

Thanks for any answers.

First off welcome to

If you just want to grow it as an experiment then yes, you can grow it in a window as long as it gets enough light. (More about this below)

As for the size, there’s no telling how big or small the plant is going to be since we don’t know its genetics. You can still trim it to the required size if it gets to big, just cut the top growth just after the last node (from the bottom up), that’ll keep it from getting too tall.

If it’s just a bag seed then don’t get your hopes up as these often just a produce a crappy plant (maybe not crappy, but definitely not as good as a genetic specific seed you can buy).

Depending on where you are in the world you may or may not be able to grow naturally. The plant requires a lot of light in order to keep it from flowering early, if where you are you get less than 12 hours of light then the plant will start to flower while very young and small so the yield and maturity of the product is not going to be good. You can use a single CFL to adjust if you don’t get enough natural light, i.e. if you only get 10 hours of daylight then use a CFL for about 6 hours so the plant won’t flower and keep growing until you chose to flower it.

As for the soil, you can use anything and the plant will still grow, after all it is a weed. You can start with some soil with nutrients in it so the plant will have some nutrition for a time (the nutrients in soil deplete after a while) and then you can chose to use organic or mineral nutrients in the water you use or put it in the soil, but if you don’t use anything the plant will still grow but it won’t get very big and yield is going to be a lot less than what you want.

I won’t keep you from all the fun of looking up this info on the web, but I think this may push you in the right direction.

Nothing wrong with bagseed at all . however my opinion is if you are going to go to all the trouble to nurture a plant. manipulated its growing cycle. then mix special nutrient laden ph adjusted water. I prefer to know what I can expect to get from my labor, CLONE++++++ CLONE+++++++ CLONE is the answer that way you always know what you will get . just my thoughts and opinion. Hookah:

Hey everyone! I am getting ready to take on a bagseed project, and it seems there is a lot of negative, or non-interested type information out there on bagseed.

What is everyone’s experience? I thought there was a thread on here about bagseed bud pics and whatnot, but can’t seem to find it now.

I have it figured, as far as genetics go, it’s all a tossup, for the most part, unless you have it figured out, and have a lab-type setting. it seems unrealistic to narrow down things as the breeders do. I dunno, maybe I am lazy!

Anyhow. Bagseed people! SPeak up! :tokin:

I savvy that Be Irie. Completely understandable. For my needs, with only two patients, it’s more fun to have variety, and this is what I aim to achieve with a few crosses of unrelated bagseeds, and one of my own concoctions. Even if things aren’t great; the plan is to get a huge seed-run, which will then give me the amount of seed needed to choose a worthy mother, and male. Later I will introduce some autoflower genetics into the strain. I may do a little inbreeding first, depending on what happens with the first set of seeds.

I cannot understand genetics and breeding. All I know is you need fresh genetics to keep some genetics alive.

Variety is the spice of life; our beloved plant should be no exception!

Thanks for your feedback Be Irie! I have enjoyed your grows, and current grow.

I am aiming to find my cerebral sativa in this bagseed mix. I know I can find it. even if its not Jack Herer, it’s still going to be bomb to me!

Cloning is the goal basically to keep my needs met while playing around with their genetics.

Thanks for your thoughts MrCloner!

This is not seed that comes from supposedly female buds. This is bagseed from a bag that is seeded. Not Kind. If ya dig. lol

I am not talking finding one seed in a bag of kind. ja right. I am going for a huge variety and trying to find my likings.

Thanks for your info bad Karma! Same BadKarma from GC?

Hermie traits, indeed from most any bagseed. Or any other seed for that matter.

Me and my friend just finished a bag seed grow. Started our weird. A guy gave my friend a WW clone and within a 2 weeks it was dead. But in the mean time he tossed a few seeds from a bud into the WW’s pot and a week later we were separating them out of the pot into cups. Kept the best 4 and grew some good stuff that was at least as good as the original bag if not better. Would have been hard to guess the 4 were from the same bud. Each looked a little different and picked at different times 1 of the 4 had a slightly more potent buzz.
Good way to get our feet wet in growing. Now we are awaiting some Northern Lights to arrive to get on with our next venture. Still only want 4 or 5 plants because of the room size. And we might experiment with one bag seed in there and hope a male NL pollinates it to see what sort of cross comes about and share some of the seeds with some friends
Bottom line if the bag was good you’ll most likely like the plants you grow from it.

6 months ago, I started 10 bagseeds from difference sources. Of the 10, I got 2 nice mother plants. Two crops later, one saltiva and one indica/saltiva plants, the results where excellent. I am drying the harvest from those mothers at this time. I had to move and take down my grow area. I have started 5 seedlings, 2 White Rhino and 3 badseeds. The badseeds look like indica strong, wide leaves.

I hope to one of each, male/female from the White Rhino to get more seeds. I will also take the male White Rhino and mix it with the bagseeds. I will create a name for the results. Maybe I will call it South Rhino or Southern Rhino.

Re: whats your bag

Amen Hash Hound.

I’ve completed 2 bag-seed grows now and I was very happy with the results both times. Having a variety of different looking plants was very educational for me.
I started with bag seed because I didn’t want to spend good money on genetics just to kill it with lack of experience. I now realize that I shouldn’t have been worried. If you can grow tomatoes, you can grow weed. But both times I think the weed I grew from bag seed was better than the bags they came from. I babied my girls. Good organic fertilizer, good light, good flush, good harvest and cure. and in the end, very good medicine. The bag was not much better than brickweed and I still got 2 nice harvests.
I think the only reason you might consider quality genetics is so you can better attend to your patient’s needs as Be Irie alluded to.
At the end of the day I would take a little (or a lot) of all the advice offered here. Find a momma in this grow and clone her. Meds for the next harvest. While you are doing that, grow out some more seeds and start searching for that next mom (or dad). you definitely want to have some clones on hand so you don’t have to sex each new plant from seed. With clones and seeds you can keep providing meds and be searching for the genetics at the same time providing you have the space.
