How and When to Transplant Cannabis Seedlings
The plantula stage is perhaps the most important phase of the entire cannabis life cycle. Whether you grow from seed or clone, the practical part always begins with the growth of a seedling. Repotting is important. Get wrong and you could lose the harvest. Proceed correctly following our guide and you will get an excellent ganja. THE IMPORTANCE OF TREATING WITH CANNABIS PLANTS After germination or cloning, seeds and cuttings need a welcoming place to develop their roots. The main goal of cannabis during its plantula stage is to develop a healthy and strong root zone. If the growth of your seedlings were compromised right away, most likely they will never fully recover and, almost certainly, they will never reach their full potential. In the worst case, the seedlings die and your crop ends even before it starts.
THE OPTIMAL CONDITIONS FOR YOUNG PLANS
Cannabis seedlings must be treated very gently. Think of marijuana as a helpless little girl. If the plants need support, place them on a toothpick or a cocktail stick with a soft string. The lighting program 18-6 is considered optimal by most growers. The white light generated by the CFL, MH or LED bulbs would be preferable. Even a sunny window sill can work just as well. The roots grow in the dark . This is why we argue that a light cycle 18-6 or 20-4 is clearly better than a 24-hour cycle of constantly lit light. The humidity should be quite high. To create the perfect habitat for the growth of your seedlings try to keep the RU around 70% and the temperatures between 20 and 24 ° C. To keep these parameters constant, get yourself a mini-greenhouse, a thermo-hygrometer and a water spray. The growth of too slender and slender seedlings may be due to genetics. However, in most cases, it is due to an excessive distance between the lamp and the plants. A cold white light of a 250W CFL can be perfectly positioned at 15cm above a dozen or more plants, without running the risk of burning the leaves.
