Growing feminized seeds is often experienced as easier since you don’t have to recognize and remove male plants. This makes them a very good alternative for those who want to make the growing process easier. Instead of feminized seeds, regular seeds will produce both female and male plants. They are mainly bought by more experienced and traditional enthusiasts, who prefer natural Cannabis seeds. These are unprocessed and pure nature. Besides that, you will need regular seeds to develop new strains. For new strains, you have to cross regular seeds with feminized seeds. The biggest difference between feminized and regular seeds is the sex of the plant, by growing regular seeds you have to pay attention to light duration (if they get enough light) and you’ll have to recognize and split the male plants from the female plants.
More about Dutch Passion
Besides feminized and regular seeds, Amsterdam Seed Center also offers you autoflowering strains from the brand ‘Dutch Passion’. The most important characteristic of autoflowering seeds is the growing process. They are going to flower after a certain age. Most of the time, this is within 2-4 weeks They do not rely on light. Autoflowering seeds are from the strain ‘’Ruderalis’’ and are almost resistant to pests, cold and mold. Remarkable about autoflowering plants is their size. They are smaller, which makes them more unnoticeable. Even though this strain does not rely on light, more buds will grow if it does get enough light.
Dutch Passion is one of the first Dutch companies in the seed market. In 1970, Dutch Passion started developing Cannabis seeds. But in 1987 they were officially pronounced as seedbank. Throughout the years, the company gained a lot of experience in developing, producing and selling Cannabis seeds. This led to seeds of an incredibly good quality. This is exactly the reason that we have added Dutch Passion seeds to our offerings.
Dutch Passion Cannabis seeds are produced and selected very carefully. They offer high quality strains at all times and this has not gone unnoticed. Dutch Passion has received multiple Cannabis Cups and some seeds have even become popular worldwide. The strains of Dutch Passion that became a worldwide hit are: White Widow, Blueberry, Skunk 11, Power Plant and Mazar. A lot of other (smaller) seedbanks use genetics from Dutch Passion seeds to develop new strains. Dutch Passion’s entire range (that is sold by Amsterdam Seed Center) includes both Regular and Feminized seeds. Besides these two, they also developed autoflowering varieties.
Many growers have used soil for years. Germinating your cannabis seeds in soil is easy enough with a few simple rules. The germination guide explains soil preparation.

How to germinate cannabis seeds in soil?
The three detailed marijuana seed germination guides detail the use of cotton pads and RootIt Cubes, as well as traditional soil germination of cannabis seeds. The seed germination guides are equally valid for feminized seeds, autoflower seeds, regular seeds, CBD seeds, outdoor cannabis seeds or any other type of cannabis seed.
RooIt Cubes, along with many similar germination cubes, all use a moisture retaining material to geminate your cannabis seeds. Often this is a synthetic brown foam polymer, but glass wool and coco fibre have been used. The guide explains how the germination cubes are prepared and kept moist, as well as showing how to place the cannabis seed inside. RootIt Cubes and similar products are widely available online and in grow shops, they are a convenient and easy way to germinate weed seeds. If you are planning to germinate your cannabis seeds with germination cubes then this guide is for you.
Important. Avoid pulling the seed casing away from the seedling (especially new growers), you can damage the seedling. Its always better to wait until the seed case dries out and falls off naturally. Ripping the seed casing away from the first set of baby leaves (cotyledon) too early damages the young seedling and can kill it.
Each grower will have their own preferred germination method, these methods are our suggestions based on many years of customer feedback from Dutch Passion customers. Good luck!
