Fast version plants come in all shapes and sizes, and their growing requirements are strain-dependent. This category encompasses cannabis seeds for novice growers and expert-level fussy marijuana strains. Below are several general rules for gardening success, but always investigate your specific cultivar to know what you can expect.
Any successful cultivation journey begins with germination, and growing quick flowering weed seeds is no exception. This process uses heat and moisture to trigger hormones beneath seed shells, resulting in a taproot. It reduces the number of duds in your stash and boosts your gardening efforts.
Let seeds spend 1–5 days in a dark room under a moist paper towel. Never let the surface dry, and use small tweezers for careful handling. Once a thin white thread protrudes from the shell, sow taproot-side first in a lightly-fertilized potting mix. You get robust seedlings, more successful rooting, and healthier plants down the line.
Our seeds have a high germination rate, provided you use our straightforward and efficient technique. This sprouting method also qualifies you for seed replacements in the unlikely chance of any failing to germinate. We replace unpopped specimens and ensure every seed you buy gets the opportunity to become a prolific plant.
Weed from fast flowering photoperiod seeds is light-reliant. It remains in the vegetative stage when there are 18 light hours each day and blooms when days get shorter. Strong lamps encourage prolific development. Use low-intensity CFL bulbs for seedlings and HPS or LED lights in veg and flower. If cultivating outdoors, pick a spot with six hours of direct daily sunlight exposure.
Indoors, keep seedlings and vegging crops under an 18/6 light schedule. Use a 24-hour setup for non-stop growth to harvest even sooner. When the crop is at ¾ of its desired final size, gradually change the cycle to 12/12 to trigger the blooming season. Reduce the “daytime” duration over a week instead of flipping lights suddenly to avoid stress.
Outdoors, plant in mid-April for a mid-to-late September harvest. The days start shortening in mid-July, and bloom begins in early August. Fast version crops spend the next month and a half maturing and become ripe in September. Even if you live in an area with short summers, your crop ripens to perfection before the rainy season.
Soil and growing medium
Fast flowering cannabis seeds thrive in soil and hydroponic systems, but some strains offer better results in one over the other. Beginner cultivators often opt for the former to keep cultivation straightforward. Experienced growers who prioritize harvest size employ soilless mediums like aeroponics, hydroponics, and coco coir.
If growing in soil, choose a slightly oversized container to avoid transplanting and stressing crops. Supply appropriate amounts of light fertilizer, as quicker development requires fewer nutrients. Get a fabric pot and well-aerated soil mix to bypass moisture issues and encourage root expansion.
Pay extra attention to nutrition and water pH in a hydroponic setup. Nutrient burn and lockout take time to fix and may damage your harvest. This cultivation style is tightly controlled, so optimize all conditions to boost yield size. Grow rates are generally higher in hydro, so prune regularly and flip to flowering early.
Plants from fast growing cannabis seeds inherit environmental preferences from their photoperiod parent. Those from harsh-weather indica strains appreciate colder and drier climates. Crops with tropical sativa origins flourish in hot and humid conditions. As a result, the required temperature depends on your chosen cultivar.
Vegging plants generally thrive in the 68–77°F range, while flowering crops prefer temperatures of 70–85°F. In both cases, nighttime temps should be around 10°F lower. Some indica strains become purple when exposed to less than 50°F in the final few weeks of blooming.
Fast version seeds originate from indica and sativa families, each with different climate preferences. Typically, your grow room should have 55–60% relative humidity during early development. Reduce it by 5% every week of late vegging and leave it at 35–40% in flowering. Indicas enjoy approximately 10% lower air moisture than sativas.
