If you need to determine the sex of your plants (to discard the males), they will start showing sex organs a few weeks into the veg stage. It’s imperative to separate males so they don’t pollinate the females.
Be mindful to increase your watering as the plant develops. When it’s young, your plant will need water close to the stalk, but as it grows the roots will also grow outward, so start watering further away from the stalk in the soil so roots can stretch out and absorb water more efficiently.
Harvest happens sometime between September and November. This depends on your local climate, as well as the weather that particular year—one year it could be the end of September, the next, end of October, and growers in the Pacific Northwest will have to pull down their crops earlier than those in Northern California.
Vegetative plants appreciate healthy soil with nutrients. Feed them with a higher level of nitrogen at this stage.
The first marijuana plant stage begins with the seed. A cannabis seed should feel hard and dry, and be light- to dark-brown in color. An undeveloped seed is generally squishy and green or white in color and likely won’t germinate.
There are a number of changes to consider once plants go from the vegetative stage to the flowering stage:
The vegetative stage of cannabis is where the plant’s growth truly takes off. At this point, you’ve transplanted your plant into a larger pot and the roots and foliage are developing rapidly. This is also the time to begin topping or training your plants.
Our team has created both fast-flowering feminized genetics and autoflowering genetics to satisfy all types of growers. The former offers all the benefits of photoperiod strains, but with a reduced flowering time.
Easy Bud received her name for good reason. As well as being one of the easiest cannabis strains to grow, she also boasts one of the fastest growing cycles. Her speedy and robust nature makes her ideal for those seeking a fast turnover, and those ready to take their first step into the world of growing weed.
Autoflowering seeds can be both sativa and indica. However, they have been crossed with a type of cannabis called ruderalis. This enables them to flower on their own in as little as 2-4 weeks without exposing them to strict 12 hour light regimes.
Our autoflowering varieties, on the other hand, are the fastest in our archive. Infused with Cannabis ruderalis genetics, these cultivars don’t require external cues to flower. Instead, they surge from seed to harvest in a matter of weeks, making them perfect for stealthy home growers.
This hard-hitting auto offers a hearty THC level of 20%, with a high that sends a wave of relaxation crashing over the body. Her terpene profile adds an extra layer of chill to the experience, along with tastes of succulent watermelon. Expect to harvest up to 500g/m² indoors and 50–90g/plant from outdoor plants.
This means that sometimes, a month after germination your plant might still look weak or small, which means that you’ll have to let it continue its growth period for more time.
Germination techniques are varying in method, although the one we tend to use the most and is the most recommended involves damp kitchen paper as a base for the seed; many people use other methods, like damp cotton, straight into the earth or a jiffy, or in water.
This is your cannabis plants’ last period. When it starts will depend obviously on the growth period, but the plant must also have the necessary characteristics developed to allow it to grow buds.
Once they’ve developed that fair, the harvest time will be indicated by the maturity and oxidization of the pistils and trichomes, which become that nice amber/honey color.
The container in which you deposit your harvest will need to be kept in a dark, cool and dry place. The only thing you’ll need to do will be to open the container for about five minutes a day so that the humidity can leave your bud, and you end up with a perfectly chlorophyll-free product.
It simply involves placing all of your buds in a container and leaving it to sit with a periodic opening to let the air flow. Curing can be done in different containers; plastic, glass or wood, although wood is faster than glass and glass is the most recommended as it doesn’t emit or contain any sort of toxic substances.
Germination is defined as the period and process through which the seed changes from a seed to a sapling.
