The Q&A Archives: Bigger Plants

Question: I want to know if bigger seeds make bigger plants than smaller seeds? If yes why?

Answer: In any batch of seeds from a single plant, some will be slightly larger and some slightly smaller. A larger seed can indicate better quality (a particularly small seed might have failed to form correctly for some reason) but it can also simply indicate a predisposition to larger seeds. A larger seed will not always result in a larger or better or more vigorous plant. Having said that, I always plant the "best looking" ones!
