As with other hobbies, a bit of basic knowledge will make the cannabis cultivation process go more smoothly. Here, we’ll discuss the plant’s growth stages.
How to Germinate Hybrid Cannabis Seeds
Once you’ve selected your favorite from our range of classic sativa strains, germination is the next step. Moisture is crucial here, so it’s best to put your seeds in a cup of water or fold them into a wet cloth. Put the cloth or container in a warm, dark spot for about 24 hours and wait for the seeds’ taproots to sprout.
The Vegetative Stage
After planting, the first stalks will sprout and start to grow their first leaves. Depending on the strain you’ve selected, it may take two or three weeks for these leaves to emerge. Sprouting time also depends on lighting quality, soil type, and the amount of air and water the seedlings get.
As your cannabis plants grow, their roots will develop, and their main stems will thicken enough to support additional branches and leaves. With enough nutrients, soil, and water, it may take a single cannabis plant a month and half to move into the flowering phase.
Once your plants’ pistils have turned from white to reddish orange, it’s the right time to harvest them for optimal THC content. Use a sharp knife or pair of scissors to cut the branches from the main stems. Hang the branches and allow them to dry before curing the buds for improved potency and flavor.
