Top 7 Most Common Growing "Myths"

Some guy on an internet forum learned a super secret trick from his neighbor's cousin who is a master grower...

All you have to do is crumble 3 goldfish crackers per gallon of water into your nutrients every other feeding. The crackers use a wheat compound that’s hard to obtain for non-commercial use, and it makes buds grow up to 20% larger!

Does that sound crazy? Good! Because it IS crazy!

Is there a way to force my female plant to hermaphrodite? Also, she's showing pistils / white hairs in the vegetative stage, what gives?

Question: Is there any way to force my female plant to hermaphrodite?  Also, she's showing pistils / white hairs in the vegetative stage...

I recently received some bags seeds my friend claimed were Chocolate Thai. My one female plant has been in vegetative state for approximately 8 weeks under a 15 to 18 hour light schedule. But she's starting to show signs of flowering ! What gives? Could it be an auto flowering strain?

How do I tell when the vegging stage ends?

Question: How do I know when the marijuana vegetative stage is over?

Answer: When the marijuana plant is in the vegetative stage, it only grows vegetative growth like leaves and stems. 

In the vegging stage, the plant does not grow buds/flowers at all.

You can tell when the vegetative stage has ended because the plant starts growing gender-specific parts in addition to leaves and vegetative growth.

My buds have lots of seeds, is this a male or female plant?

Question: I have a healthy plant, the buds have alot of seeds in them. I'm almost certain it's a male plant. My question is, If this plant is a 'Male' are the seeds only male as well? Do they produce male and female seeds??
