If the seedlings are intended for outdoor growing, the covered propagator should be placed next to a window to give the seedlings light. By the time outdoor seedlings are big enough to have the propagator’s cover removed, the process of acclimatizing them to outdoor conditions can begin (weather allowing).

Sono al secondo tentativo di avviare la coltivazione, il primo tentativo ha avuto esito negativo, su 5 semi autofiorenti femminilizzati, 1 solo è arrivato quasi alla fine, ma la resina prodotta era poca e non ha fatto in tempo a maturare bene perchè la pianta si è bloccata nella crescita ed è seccata. Ora stò provando con 10 semi naturali, sfida ancora più difficile, tutto sempre indoor, con lampade led di cui 5 con luce rossa e blu, 1 piu grande multispettro usata come “sole” che faccio accendere solo 6 ore al giorno alla metà delle 18 ore di luce, sperando che questo simuli appunto il sole nelle ore centrali del giorno.
sono a 15 giorni dalla nascita, oggi sono alte circa 10/12 cm e stanno spuntando su quasi tutte la 3a coppia di foglie seghettate. Spero che non si blocchi la crescita, vorrei poi usare dei fertilizzanti naturali, come fondi di caffè, bucce di banana, acqua di fagioli, ma ho paura che questi formino delle muffe, secondo voi devo mischiare nel terreno o appoggiarle sopra al terreno nei bordi del vaso, per non far toccare il busto della pianta ?
Seems like every grower has their own ideas so much so that I find my ownb pattern which changes with every grow with every plant
Read this article to learn about the best conditions for your cannabis seedlings. Learn about optimum temperatures, light exposure, air conditions, and the equipment you’ll need to get the best possible results.
Your growing pots will need to be placed in a damp climate that is within the temperature range listed under our golden rules. After 4–10 days, you should see a young seedling sprout, while the roots will have begun to develop underneath the soil. The entire plant and its soil can now be transferred to a larger pot, where normal growing routines should start.
The soil pots will need small holes (roughly 10–15mm deep) for the newly germinated seeds to be placed into. Once the seeds are secure, you will want to place a fluorescent light 13–15cm (5–6 inches) away to encourage growth. Finally, don’t risk overwatering your seeds at this early stage. Use a plant mister to make sure they stay damp but not soaking wet.
Planting directly into your growing medium prevents having to move seeds when they are at their most fragile. That first root tip is covered with microscopic filaments that are easily damaged. Given that both a cup full of water and moist paper towels are more prone to temperature fluctuations from their environment, planting in soil is a much safer option.
WET KITCHEN TOWEL METHOD
Often overlooked, it is all too easy to assume that the vegetative and flowering stages of cannabis growth are the most critical parts of the plant’s life cycle. However, with the chance of failure high unless you know what you’re doing, poor planning when it comes to germination can make or break your next grow. Giving your cannabis seeds the best possible start on their journey to bulging buds is a surefire way to encourage a healthy and robust plant.
To avoid disappointment, seeds that have a darker colouration stand a better chance of germinating, while pale green or white seeds are likely to fail. Even if dark seeds look slightly damaged, they should be planted anyway. There is a good chance they will still germinate, even if the outer shell is somewhat crushed.
Small, fragile, and in desperate need of a helping hand, there are several ways you can germinate your cannabis seeds. All methods have varying degrees of success, with both advantages and disadvantages. It is important to note that even with advanced growing expertise and top-of-the-line equipment, you may still end up with a few failed seeds. This is a natural part of dealing with a living organism. At Royal Queen seeds, we only sell feminized cannabis seeds, so there is no need to worry about removing male plants.
No matter if you have a large cannabis growing operation or are an amateur just beginning your first seedlings, making use of propagators is a great way to control growing conditions and speed up your seed germination. A propagator allows you to take full control of your growing conditions, allowing you to germinate and grow your seeds and seedlings in a safe, moist and warm environment to give them an optimum chance of becoming healthy and high yielding plants.
Any propagators can be used to grow cannabis, as they come standardised with a thermometer and built in LED Lights. They can either be powered by batteries or electricity, and allow you to control the environment within the container. Seedlings can sprout up to 30% faster when you use a propagator and the environment is much safer as you can fully control the heat and moisture content, and you cannabis seeds will also be less susceptible to damage by insects or disease. Seedlings can be kept in the propagators until they sprout their first set of leaves. This ensures that they will get a good start and grow into healthy, high yielding plants.
