How to tell what kind of seeds You have?

  1. I have a bunch of seeds I'm currently germinating, and I was wondering how can you tell if you have heady or midds seeds? Because I don't want to waste my time growing mids.
  2. There is no way to tell from seed alone. Sorry :hide:
  3. Unless you remembered which seeds came from which bags....

    No, you can't tell. Seeds vary as much as rocks vary. But, the strain isn't the only indicator of "dankness." Seeds taken from a bag of mids and grown with proper lighting, nutes, techniques, etc....can be just as good quality as headies grown in shitty conditions.

    Plant em, grow em, and let em do their thing.
  4. I haven't heard of any way to tell the strain or quality of the buds by looking at seeds. However, I read that if you look at the ends of the seed, you will see a dimple on one end. According to the guy, he said that "female" seeds will have a perfectly round dimple. Males will have an oval dimple.

    I can't say this is or is not true. It's just a comment from someone years ago. I do not use this process when choosing which seeds to sprout. I just remembered it when I came across this thread.
  5. That's a variation on an old (false) myth that refuses to die...
  6. i dunno about you guys, but i have kinda noticed that seeds i get from better bud have those nice well defined tiger stripes. from crappy weed it seems like the seeds are usually more pale and smaller.

  7. this is very true if you are basing the quality on the bud that the seeds came from and not the plant they grow. the darker tiger striped seeds are from older but that was well mature. the small pale seeds come from cheap early picked bud. they are not as matured. most likely not as well cured either. just an over all low quality rush job.
