I wonder if anyone will bring cannabis seeds? Everyone can grow 12, and I would sure like to trade out to get some variety going. No selling allowed, but swapping doesn't count as selling, does it? Whether trading or not, this could be an event of interest:
Kentucky Sues Federal Government Over Hemp Seeds
Louisville -- Kentucky's Agriculture Department sued the federal government Wednesday, seeking the release of imported hemp seeds that have been held up by customs officials. The state said it needs to get the seeds in the ground for the spring season and each day they are held up jeopardizes the yield.
The 250-pound shipment from Italy has been held for more than a week by customs officials in Louisville. "No state should have to endure what Kentucky has gone through in this process. We must take a stand against federal government overreach," Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer said.
Marijuana Seeds Tips and Tricks
A great tip after acquiring marijuana seeds, there may be extra left over after planting your garden so storage is important. Store your product in a cool, dry and dark environment. Some experts believe a temperature of 4º C is best which means the refrigerator not the freezer, and placed in an air tight container to avoid condensation.
If you're not into the fridge for storage then the back of a drawer or closet is good. Avoid intense light, heat and moisture. Storage can last 2 years and then the germination rate starts to decline. We have personally had 5 year olds germinate just fine.
Average male to female ratio of regular seeds is 50/50 so germinate twice as many as needed, Stressful growing situations can produce males and hermaphrodites. You won't know if you have a male or female until the growth period starts. Feminized cannabis will have a female ratio much higher. A new type of marijuana is auto-flower which means your plant has rapid flowering right away.
