What Does Androgynous Mean?
Androgynous means having either indeterminate sex, or showing morphological characteristics of both sexes. In marijuana plants, this means hermaphroditic. A hermaphroditic plant will have both male flowers and female buds, and will self-pollinate. Hermaphroditic marijuana plants pose a challenge for cultivators in that only the female buds are sought, whereas the production of both male flowers, male pollen, and thus seeds halts resin production in favor of seed production within mature marijuana plants in the flowering phase. The type of marijuana that most cultivators cherish is called sinsemilla, which is Spanish for "without seed."
