Bloom Description: Hemp is normally a dioecious species, with male and female flowers on separate plants, but sometimes bisexual plants occur. The female flowers are in greenish leafy spikes a little less than 1 in (2. 5 cm) long, borne on stem tips, and the male flowers are yellowish, tiny, and borne in axillary clusters. The flowers are inconspicuous and without scent; they are pollinated not by insects, but by the wind. The fruit is an achene, which is a hard, one-seeded fruit that remains closed at maturity
Soil Type: Hemp is tolerant of dry spells, but requires regular water for best growth.
Propagation: Hemp is grown from seed (actually the achene, which is technically a fruit, is planted).
