germinating marijuana seeds in urine

Here’s a brief list of things people have been told to feed their cannabis to improve its taste/flavor/potency:

The yellow spots on the top bud are the result of yellow sugar leaves that are still somewhat visible after the bud was trimmed. Luckily, this is mostly a cosmetic problem, and the buds will still be a good smoke! The bud below had green sugar leaves until harvest.

  1. “The drying and curing process does not have a huge effect on bud quality.” Not only is the dry/cure process important, but it may also account for up to 50% of your final bud quality by improving smell, taste, and potency. Buds that are improperly dried and cured may cause headaches, cause “speedy” effects, smell like hay or have no smell and have reduced potency. Always dry and cure your buds!
  2. “You should use seeds from hermaphrodite plants.” While hermaphrodite plants can produce self-pollinated seeds, these seeds are likely to end up being hermies just like their parent, which means you’ll often end up with seeded buds once again. That being said, sometimes it’s your only choice, and with self-pollinated seeds you know that all the seeds will end up (mostly) female. Learn more about feminized seeds and hermies.
  3. Blowing cannabis smoke at plants helps them to grow faster. I would love to live in a world where this is the case, but in our world, it’s actually worse for them. Smoke is not good for your plants, but it won’t immediately kill them, either.
  4. Crushed up birth control pills will force a plant to be female. If you’ve never heard this, it probably sounds crazy! I’m not sure how this myth got started, but it’s just plain not true. Adding crushed up birth control pills to your plant’s water isn’t going to make your cannabis plant female.
  5. You can grow huge plants indoors with barely any electricity. When it comes to growing cannabis, if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Whenever you read outrageous claims like “this LED grow light only uses 45W of electricity but produces the same yields as a 600W HID grow light,” you should be cautious. Cannabis plants need a lot of light to produce big yields and so far, there are not a lot of ways to get around that fact. Whether you’re using LED grow lights, HPS or LEC grow lights (the three most efficient types of grow lights for cannabis), your yields are directly proportional to the amount of electricity you put in. How much yields should you expect from different types of grow light?
  6. Cannabis plants grow like a weed, so just stick seeds in dirt. Sure, you can stick some seeds in the ground and wait to see what happens. But if you care about getting sticky, potent bud, you need to care for your plants and ensure they produce to their best. Think of a gardener – they can throw a bunch of seeds in their garden and see how things turn out, but serious gardeners don’t do that. By giving plants exactly what’s needed at the right time, yields and quality get increased 100x. Unless you just happen to live in an area with a perfect environment, perfect weather, and perfect soil, you will greatly improve your results by learning the basics of growing cannabis, and taking time to ensure plants get what they need to produce the best yields possible. That being said, this does not mean that growing cannabis is hard.

Myth #5 “More Nutrients = Faster Growth”

A real cannabis nutrient system allows you to control exactly how much Nitrogen you’re giving your plant, so you give the right amount of nutrients at the right stage of life. More Nitrogen isn’t always better, especially in the flowering stage.

An Aerogarden does save you from having to buy growing lights and a DWC (hydroponic) kit. But a better hydro kit would be cheaper, and the light provided isn’t strong enough to produce significant yields in the flowering stage. The lights are also way too close to the tops of plants, and the roots will overgrow the too-small reservoir in just a few weeks.

You want your plant to be green and healthy, but dark green leaves and burnt tips are signs your plant is getting more nutrients than it can use.

These initial phases are essential to ensure the following stages of development end as expected. Therefore, we must be especially careful and consider all the factors that can harm newly-emerging shoots. The temperature, water, oxygen level, nutrients, and salts are some of the variables that need some serious monitoring. To make things easier for you, we have prepared a rundown of some of the most common external attacks as well as the possible solutions to adopt to protect your crops.

First off, make sure there is proper drainage to prevent water accumulation near the roots. To achieve this, you can add some perlite or vermiculite to the soil mixture and avoid planting the sprouted seeds too deep in the pot, since liquids build up in the deepest areas. It also helps to sterilise the tools or spray the soil with an antifungal treatment (copper, chamomile, and garlic can be used), as well as raking it and leaving it for a few days in the sun before planting if we are to grow directly outdoors.

The process begins with the cracking of the seed caused by the increase in size of the embryo, which breaks through the separation of the two lobes of the shell freeing a weak primordial stem that, once in the substrate, submerges to form a tiny root that gradually grows stronger, until it is vigorous enough to lift the remains of the seed to the surface of the soil. The two half-shells that surround the seed act as a pair of solar panels, capturing solar energy, and producing chlorophyll to finally give rise to the first two-toothed leaves.

The time has finally come for the germination of your cannabis seeds. Once the embryo has emerged from its protective shell, the tiny marijuana seedlings begin to develop their first leaves and a stalk that is still weak. It is in these initial stages that they are especially sensitive: the shoots need special care to prevent damage caused by agents such as rain, air, and fungi.

Just like with newborn animals, newly sprouted plants are much more sensitive to external attacks than adults. So it is necessary to make efforts to protect them from any threats. And, as we are in full germination mode, it is time to devote all our care and attention to those delicate shoots that in a few months will give rise to a slender plant.

At this time of the year, when the weather begins to be kinder, you can take the seedlings outside for a few days after they have germinated so they receive sunlight and rainwater. However, a shower or a strong hailstorm, so commonly occurring during these months as well, can completely ruin them and waste all our earlier work.

Fortunately, there are different methods to protect our seedlings from inclement weather, such as setting up a small greenhouse or covering the pots with plastic or glass containers. A pretty simple solution would be to use plastic cups, jugs or empty water bottles cut in half and fixed to the ground. These artificial shells will not only serve as a shield from water and hail but will also contribute to maintaining optimum levels of humidity and temperature.
