This article explains how to correctly germinate your cannabis seeds, covering everything from optimum temperatures, to potting your seedlings and transferring them outdoors (or inside under lights).
Place the plates somewhere warm (21ºC) and away from direct light.
Step 1. The setup – How to germinate cannabis seeds
Seedlings intended for outdoors should be acclimatised to direct sunlight by placing them on a windowsill inside the house and increasing their exposure to direct sunlight by an hour or two per day.
Seeds should be placed on top of the tissue, allowing each seed as much space as possible.
New seedlings should be given access to bright light from the time they emerge. Care should be exercised in the first week or two, as seedlings are still quite delicate.
There are benefits to the professionally made germination stations as they work very well and are pretty cheap to buy.
It’s a steady 85 degrees F in there, no idea about the humidity in the bottles.
Germination Method 4: Soak Marijuana Seeds in Water Overnight
Some of the best plants I have ever grown have emerged from seeds which were flimsy and could be crushed between my fingers. As long as you provide great marijuana germination conditions (as explained above), I’ve found that a lot of seemingly “weak” seeds germinate and produce amazingly hardy plants and great buds.
Rockwool Cubes (Not Recommended)
You’re trying to give young plants a very small dose of nutrients at first. However, even with young marijuana seedlings, the pH of your water and growing medium is important. Some growers get lucky and happen to have water with the right pH, but if you’re noticing deficiencies and problems with your seedlings, definitely take the time to understand about marijuana root pH and how it affects the plant’s overall health.
Additionally, every long-time grower will tell you that clones degrade over time.
Make sure the area the seeds are in is warm, somewhere between 70-85°F.
Top feminized cannabis strain families
Cannabis used for hemp production has been selected for other traits, including a low THC content, so as to comply with the 2018 Farm Bill. Consequently, many varieties of hemp produce significant quantities of CBD.
This is the beauty of seeds—often, you can tell which plants or genetics will thrive right from the get-go. This will help you determine which plants you want to take cuttings from for clones or for breeding if you want to create a seed bank of your own.
As mentioned above, you can skip the processing of sexing weed plants by growing with feminized seeds or clones.
