After those initial leaves develop the plants begin to enter a stage of explosive growth. This is the vegetative stage. A healthy vegetative stage is the period of growth most associated with great yields, as the size of the plant can make a huge difference at the end of it all.
It can last anywhere from 3-16 weeks, so knowledge of the particular strain being used is crucial here.
Flowering is triggered by the light cycle shifting to 12 hours on and off, so the timing of it will vary from growing to grow but this generally begins around week 13 of a grow.
This is where it all begins, the seed. During this formative stage of growth the cannabis seed, once planted or placed in a germination station, breaks apart and the spindly taproot emerges looking for nutrients.
The first leaves should be developing at this point, which the plant uses to photosynthesize light into nutrients.
Watch as these young plants are trained to fill up a ScrOG net. ScrOG stands for “Screen Of Green” and refers to using a “screen” (usually made of string) to force plants to grow into a flat canopy.
Sweet And Sour Headband Marijuana Time Lapse Grow – seed to harvest
Marijuana seeds first sprout two smooth “baby” leaves known as cotyledon leaves. These leaves were already formed in the shell. When the seed is put in warm wet conditions, the seeds “wake up” and the seed splits open. The white tip that first emerges becomes a root and grows downward.
Young plant burned by Pyrethrum while lights are on & recovery
Learn exactly what you need to buy in order to start growing cannabis indoors.
I sprayed Dr. Doom on this young plant to try to combat spider mites. Plant is under a 42w CFL. The main apex was also burned which stopped growing but eventually a new one formed off center. New leaves sprouted just above the cotyledons as well. Don’t spray pyrethrum-based products with any grow lights still on! Pyrethrum is an ingredient in certain insecticides. In this case it came from Dr. Doom. Pyrethrum is very photoreactive so because it was sprayed with the lights on it created a bad situation on the plant as you can see. It almost appears to burn it. The growth was very gnarly for awhile afterwards!
Although this plant recovers, you can see how badly the burns stunted its growth, and you’ll notice that the regrowth that follows is a bit odd as the plant “ditches” the burnt parts and then gets back into the swing of things.
Watch as the two new main colas at the top get wider and taller, while their connection to the base of the trunk is strengthened and thickened to support their growth.
Auto Blackberry Kush may be one of the most visually stunning autoflower seeds you have ever grown. She could also be the quickest!, sometimes ready to harvest in as little as 9 weeks after planting the seeds. Pay attention to humidity towards the end of bloom, these heavy dense blooms benefit from lower humidity levels and good air circulation.
Auto Glueberry OG seeds suit the grower with the space to accommodate her tendency to grow tall and wide. She responds well to LST and training if you need to control her growth. In the right hands this strain is superior to most high-performance photoperiod strains in terms of yield and potency
Auto Blackberry Kush time lapse video
These time lapse grow videos show you the type of result you can expect from Dutch Passion cannabis seeds. Great care is taken with the development of our prize-winning cannabis genetics, therefore we aim to give growers the best information about the type of grow they can expect.
It isn’t recommended to top/FIM this auto since you will lose out on the colossal main bloom. When harvesting, we recommend waiting for a few more amber trichomes than usual. This allows the buds to really deliver their very best high!
