What to do when the baby comes home from the nursery?
Do you bury the seeds in the dirt and hope for the best? Do you know what to do once the young plants break through the topsoil? Here are a few tips:
- The first step is that you must take care of the seed and i49 begins this process with storage in cool, dry and dark locations required to maintain the seed quality. If you are not going to plant immediately take steps to store your seeds in a dry, dark place at about 40 degrees F.
- Indoor plants will allow you to control the conditions, but it will take up some space. Outdoor plants will be less expensive but a bit riskier with bug infestations and animals as well as bad weather.
- Indoor lighting is accomplished with artificial fluorescent or expensive LED lights while good old Mr. Sun will do the trick every time for outside growing. The plants need about eight hours a day of direct sunlight.
- Choosing the proper soil and nutrients can be confusing, but the use of purchased soil or home composted soil is best to keep the pH at a slightly acidic level (pH of 6 to 7). The experts at i49 can advise on the best nutrition choice for planting in soil or with a non-soil hydroponic grown crop.
- The plants will first go through a stage that is like a baby growing from an infant to just before puberty. Keep the lights on and keep the plant well fed.
- When the blooms begin to appear to adjust the lighting for indoor plants to have 12 hours of sunlight per day. You cannot control what happens outdoors. In a short time, the sex of the plant will be revealed, and you may choose to get rid of the male plants. Their only purpose is pollination, and you don’t want them stealing nutrients from the “girls.”
- The buds will eventually stop growing and will grow what looks like white hairs which will darken. The best harvest time is when about half of the white hairs have changed to the darker hue. Patience is a virtue when deciding when to harvest your crop.
