Here is a video of Bjorn and Stephen discussing what you should be looking for in a cannabis seed:
Why start from seed?
Seeds have taproot where clones do not, therefore they will create a better root system than a clone. You also have more variety with selecting seeds from a seed bank with multiple breeders. Clones are not readily available for most areas and are often more limited in strains, which make seeds an optimal choice for growing.
A clone will save you some time if you put it right into flower, but you won’t have the advantage of starting in a Grobo with max light spectrum. This means it may have large spaces between internodes, preventing you from maximizing your Grobo yield.
What does a good seed look like?
Mature Seed - Dark
Immature Seed - Light green, Beige
Always avoid cracked seeds. See pictures of good and bad seeds in this article: What is seed germination? How to pick a seed.
Different seed types
Regular seeds or bag seeds - 50/50 chance of male/female.
Feminized seeds - Breeders ensure the seed will germinate a female plant, which is what we want!
Auto-flowering - Not dependent on specific lighting. Grobo has their auto recipes on a 18 hour of light, 6 hours of darkness schedule.
What seed should I pick!
A feminized Indica seed is optimal to begin in a Grobo. We recommend sticking to a photoperiod dependent seed.

Feminized Indica seeds that are photoperiod dependent are awesome in a Grobo. Try out these strains:
- Strawberry Kush: ILGM (Feminized, Indica dominant)
- Chocolate Cream:Seedsman (Feminized, Indica dominant)
- OG Kush:ILGM (Feminized, mostly Indica)
- Grand Daddy Purple:ILGM (Feminized, Indica dominant)
