Planting germinated marijuana seeds is different than regular planting of marijuana seeds. Normally seeds should be placed with the pointed end up, at a depth of 1/2 to 3/4 inch. The embryo tap root emerges from the pointed (stylar) end. The natural method of growth is for this root to make a turn and grow downward. This bend formed by the downward curve of the taproot is what emerges from the soil and the friction of dragging the cannabis seeds upward helps the new plant to loosen and cast off the seed case when it breaks through the surface. On the other hand, an already germinated marijuana seed is ready to plant straight down to a 1 to 11/2 inch depth. The end of the germinated seed now has a big root ready to go straight down while the seed casing may be off or just hanging on. You can cover the entire germinated seed with your grow medium leaving the tip of the seed casing just ready to break the surface. Some breeders like to help and remove the seed casing so they can plant with the new leaflets just exposed.
Once the seedlings become exposed to a light source they begin to grow at an
accelerated rate. The single embryonic root begins to form lateral roots.
These lengthening rootlets absorb more nutrients and water each day. Balance the
natural increase of nutrients needed by bigger plants.
The roots like access to air, to breathe. Allow the grow medium to dry, this drying of
the medium allows air to be drawn into the medium. Never allowed
the medium to dry out completely. A light misting of water a few times a day during lights-on time
will help to keep the surfaces of the leaves clean. This will help the leaves
with their processes of inhaling and exhaling, as well as photosynthesizing. The
grow medium needs a ph of 7.5 to 8.0.
The relative humidity should be kept around 50%, and the ambient temperature
should be lowered to around 73-78?F (23-26?C). The seedlings are fed a standard
full-spectrum vegetative feeding of any organic or chemical food. There are
twelve essential elements. Regular fertilizers contain only the three
primary nutrients: Nitrogen (N), Potassium (K) and Phosphorus(P). A full
spectrum fertilizer contains the proper proportions of all the secondary
elements and trace elements.
Congratulations, your germinated marijuana seeds have survived the most difficult and dangerous part of their lives, may your all your marijuana plants grow tall and strong.
