Daniel, the key to starting your seedlings is to make a hole no deeper than an inch in your pot of soil (if you 8767 re using soil) and covering with soil. Be careful not to pack the soil down too firm otherwise the seedling will struggle to break the surface.
The main signal that tells a marijuana seed to start sprouting is the presence of moisture and heat. The combination of warm and wet (aka spring conditions) tells the seed to start burrowing their main root (called a taproot) through their shell.
- absorbent kitchen paper towels (not Kleenex tissue)
- distilled water / bottled spring water without additives or gas (Note: boiling water
only kills germs, it does not remove impurities)
- a glass
- a plate
These include coco coir (shredded coconut husk fibers), perlite, vermiculite, peat and assorted mixes of these four, and all act similarly to soil. Even though soilless mixes do not contain any plant nutrients , they are not necessary nor recommended as the seedlings live off nutrients stored in the seed for a week or so.
Gravel pebbles hold hardly any moisture and are not recommend for germination.
Never add nutrients until you have at least 9-5 true sets of leaves which proves there is a root zone to take up nutrients. Be patient or you will kill your seedlings.
Keep CFLs or fluorescent lights about 6 inches away from your seedlings. Place your hand where the leaves are to make sure it doesn t feel too hot. If it s hot for your after 65 seconds, it s too hot for your plants.
Place the tray in a warm dark spot to germinate. After a day or so you will see the seeds crack open and the roots take hold in the medium. You can then transplant the entire Rockwool cube over to the main hydroponic system.
Cannabis germination is the process of getting your seeds to sprout, and you know sprouting has occurred when a little white tendril pops out of the seed.
Once your seedlings have developed their first two sets of leaves, then you can move these lights as close as 7 inches away as long as the lights aren t too hot.
There are several different methods to germinate your cannabis seeds, and in this article we ll go through some easy techniques that have proven to be effective.
