Bought some seeds a while back from attitude seedbank. Then I recently bought some more of the same strain but they look smaller. Is that a problem? I mean will they produce smaller weaker plants? Thanks

They should be OK. The only issue I have had with very small seeds is when the root doesn't get physically stabilized and the media is fairly loose. the root ended up looking like a spiral around the seed. If I had packed the soil better, it wouldn't have happened.

I don’t know why breeders make small seeds..I really don’t….like they are only grow very small plants or something for quick turn around.long as they look okay I spose they should b good…

Usually smaller plants have bigger seeds, big ass plants with lots of smaller calyx can make smaller seeds, unless we're really talking about immature seeds? I’ve seen narrow leaf plants make absolutely tiny, fully mature seeds outdoors. Usually short squat wide leafs throw the slingshot ammo 🫘

FWIW, I have a few strains with incredibly small seeds: DJ Short's Blue Velvet and a landrace known as 'Nanda Devi'. On the other hand, my Uttarakhand seeds are monster sized. I suspect this has to do with the bract size genetics since it has proven to have nothing to do with the plant size. The Uttarakhand and Nanda Devi outdoors always end up 10-14ft tall, the DJS Blue Velvet stayed short both indoors and out.

When I grow or select seeds I have found that the color of the seed tells me more about viability than size. I like to let the seed covering almost fall off on its own before I know the seed is ready...nice and dark or spotted like a bird's egg.

I usually get smaller seeds from heavily pollinated buds. When it's just a few seeds they're bigger. But it's mostly genetic.

hmm.interesting.could be the strain used as I’ve only done indica variety’s and they come out like ball bearings..there is very small ones in my last seeds I made but I’d say 98% of the are pretty big.

Yeah, ignoring is their thing. I'm still waiting my refund from attitude, all seeds arrived crushed
