The next step of planting a cannabis seed is to move it into a small hole. Gently pick up the plant and place it into the soil. Some growers prefer to use a clean pair of tweezers to transfer it over to the pot. It is critical not to squeeze too hard to prevent the germinated seed from getting hurt. Make sure to plant quickly to ensure the budding roots stay safe from excessive light.
The seed has enough energy to push through a thin layer. The farther down it is, the more likely the soil could hinder the plant’s ability to grow. It might not be able to get the light it needs, and the stem could become weak. If you believe you planted the germinated seed too deep, try brushing away some soil instead of repositioning the plant.
Step 3 — Place the Cannabis Seed in the Dimple
Once you have everything you need, you can begin the process of planting your weed seeds.
Beginners might also put seedlings in coco soil. Coco-based soil usually has enough nutrients to last a few weeks. Some cannabis growers prefer it because it is environmentally friendly.
Some seeds may be tricky to plant and grow, but you do not need much regarding cannabis seeds. You will notice that many of the tools are already in your home. If you need to get any additional items, you can find them in a regular store or garden center. The list of equipment includes:
3. Vegetative stage (2–8+ weeks) – The vegetative stage could last indefinitely if we’re talking photoperiod (non-autoflowering) strains. Most growers let their plants vegetate for a month or two, or until their plant has a reached a certain size. Bigger plants can mean bigger yields, but how long you veg depends on available growing space.
This means you could theoretically veg your photoperiod cannabis plant as long as you want. This is also what many growers do to keep their mother plants viable for a long time. But unless you’re growing mothers, you will normally want to veg your plants until they have reached a certain height, before initiating flowering by switching your timer to 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness.
THE GROWING STAGES OF CANNABIS
• Seedling stage
Time: 10–15 days
• Preparation time before you grow (0–4 weeks) – The time you need to get your seeds and supplies together, and to get your grow room ready.
• Flowering stage
Time: 5–16+ weeks
