@nails Hi Nails welcome to Percys mate. Im pretty new myself but I think it's pretty much luck of the draw when it comes to that, I planted my first reg seed a couple of weeks ago, well 2 seeds, one didn't sprout and im still waiting to see if the ladys going to have bolls or not.lol

But apart from those two iv only grown fem seeds so far.  Some of the other lads will likely be along soon and will be able to give you a bit more info on it 🙂

@nails Welcome to Percy's man, our sponsors Ali Bongo are able to get seeds into NZ, try orfldering some feminised seeds from them mate, they should arrive within a few weeks 

Its the luck of the draw when you use regs, 50% chance of being male, or female. It's best to just use feminised seeds Smile

@nails Its luck of the draw with regs. conditions wont affect whether its female or male the chromosomes are already decided in the seed no way to change that.

I have only come up with males ( this is out of 10 seeds )

Welcome to Percy's!  Sorry to hear about your troubles. Let me offer this in the spirit of helping: Getting 10 males out of 10 seeds is *really* against the odds, so I have to ask, are you certain they are all males?  You may be right, but perhaps this is a mistake that could save you a lot of work and time if you were incorrect. You could post some clear pics to get other people's input here and confirm/deny your conclusion.  Regardless, as others have said, feminized seeds are the way to go with the odds of getting a male being slim to none.  Bonne chance, mon ami!

Hey @Nails, glad your here and sorry to hear about the problems your having. Maybe your just getting all the males out of your grow system now and you'll never have another one, sort of all at one time thingy!! 🤣 That would be nice ay!       Well welcome to Percy's man, you can bitch about it here, we understand. 👍

Hi @nails, welcome to Percy’s. We also have “Weed Seed Express” as one of our sponsors. They have a very good track record of getting seed to difficult places like Australia with near 100% success rate. Maybe drop them a message and see if they can ship to NZ.

In reality ten seeds from various random plants is probably more your problem.

seriously try to get some seeds from here or the net otherwise your wasting your time & money.

good luck bud

Yer im skeptical of this, ad wonder how easy it is for a home grower to do so i didn't bring it up. Its best just to go with the fems seeds

As it goes we do anyways I mean with have a high n in veg and for the first few weeks of flower by that time it’s made it’s mind up.

all that said I get what you mean it could get really confusing to a new grower.

definitely agree get some fem beans and forget about males .

👍

@mix I have to wonder if this is a reference to influencing the expression of the seed already formed, or if this is a reference to epigenetic influences of the mother on future progeny when she forms seeds.  Does the text specify? The author seems to be making some pretty striking claims without citations.
