CBJ: What are the benefits of growing from seed?
SOS: There are so many benefits. Where to start? When growing from seed you can literally start seeds in your window for outdoor harvest. With seeds, you don’t need to worry about having the leaves reset due to a time difference and light cycle like you do clones. Starting from seed allows you to avoid bringing in mold or bug problems from someone else’s garden.
Seeds can be stored for many years, as long as they are stored properly. When caring for seeds, keep them in a cool, dark, dry place. You can grow different seeds and go back to that seed two years later and grow it again without having to keep a mother plant under a light and try to keep it alive. So the benefits of seeds, in our eyes, are endless.
CBJ: How do you get the plants to come out true?
SOS: Some may just take right to it when growing a plant from seed, as they have gardening experience. When dealing with seeds make sure to buy reliable genetics from a reputable breeder or seed bank. That way you know these folks care about what they do and are not producing seeds that will be hermaphrodites or a big burden to grow.
CBJ: Why would I want to grow from seed rather than from clones?
SOS: I believe growing from seed is a personal preference. I do have a lot of friends and family who grow from clones and prefer that way. I prefer to grow from seed. I’ve had more success with seeds than I ever have had with a cutting/clone given [to me] or purchased from a dispensary. I am aware that there are some plants that you can only get in clone form.
CBJ: Any other information you would like to share?
SOS: We wanted to create a way for people to have access to great genetics from all over the world at one easy location here in the US. Our goal was to help caregivers and sick patients obtain medical seeds so they could grow their medications safely.
