do bigger seeds produce bigger plants

BIGGER SEEDS better than smaller seeds??

Big seeds means they’re all boys. JK. Seed size doesn’t indicate anything towards the genetic disposition of the plant which may grow from it.

Infact, most seeds from breeders tend to be quite a bit smaller than ones you get in your bag.

I don’t know who ever started the “Bigger is better”.

It’s like saying longer is better.

the markings on seeds are just camo, for years and years i heard all different stories about seed coloration, it doesnt really mean much, immature seeds are white-ish, good seeds are brown/drk green, whateva u wanna call it, but thats about it as far as color goes

one of my mates is STILL under the impression that “tiger striped” seeds are of better genetics and what not, but his plain looking seeds do just as well if not better than his “tiger striped”, he wont even look at his own evidence.

Assuming all seeds are from same Momma: The bigger seeds just mean they have gotten to grow. Due to time to develop, less competition for food, things like that. It DOES NOT mean that bigger seed was able to reach it’s potential nor does it tell you the XY chromosome makeup.

An Alien peers in from deep space into the City of San Fransisco and spots a 580 lb. human and concludes this one is the best one. Problem with this analogy: Aliens Never Assume. They are masters of science.

Intresting point ive noticed, trifoliate seedlings generally generally come from larger seeds although this dosent mean all large seeds are trifoliate.

Grow a shit plant and seperate all the seeds into large and small and if you get any trifoliates they will be more from the larger seed pile than the small.

Totally useless info but an obdservation ive made many times

WOW, some real odd answers on being all males from the early site days.

Some strains can throw really big and thick walled seeds. It’s a genetic thing, nothing more. Other then developed and under developed.

Still, this was another dead thread dug up for mysterious reasons. Sometimes, letting the dead rest. Is a good thing.

Sorry but.
That means nothing either. Other then light colored, underdeveloped seeds – being hollow and non viable.

I run strains that have no “tiger stripe” seeds by genetic’s. Cpl of them are just brand new and don’t even have info on any seed/strain info site. TY B&B at Smellboat!

I popped a good few seeds in my time ,And the darker seeds all ways seem to be the better ,Germination Rate.I think that is one of the reasons seed company’s like TGA don’t even package them.I am not saying they wont be any good ,because one may be fire ,but given the choice i would all ways choose the darker seeds,Over the really light ones.

But each grower has there own experience with seeds ,so you cant really answer this.With a yes or no because some will have grown great strains from light seeds ,And some like me find them not has good ,Not all of them are bad.So best just Popping them and see what happens.

Something subcool (tga breeder) said about it. He noticed that seeds grown under hps are larger than seeds grown under led, though both were just as viable. He thought it had something to do with the infra red in the hps keeping the seed pod warmer during development.

I’ve grown out everything from pale white tiny seeds to great honkin tiger striped, and they all germed just fine. Don’t think it matters except to consumers buying them by appearance.

i've always assumed that…the bigger seeds :peace:would grow stronger and may have more potential to be a female compared to the smaller ones.. is this…
