10 – The female marijuana plant

Female cannabis plant

The mature female Cannabis plant also makes racemes, which are a combination of little calices and pistils. In every calyx, there is an ovule. The pollen from the male marijuana plant fertilizes the ovule. This happens as follows: the little grains of pollen from the male are connected to a large pistil and the stalk enters the calyx of the female marijuana plant.

After the fertilization, seeds grow inside the calyx. One seed has the characteristics of two separate plants. It has the genetic traits of his ‘parents,’ divided in two halves, unless the parents share the exact same characteristics, like a pure variety or a stabilized hybrid form.
