cannabis seed propagation temperature

Heating mats should be avoided unless you need it in the wintertime. A dysfunctional heating mat, or a mistake in the temperature control, can easily boil the seeds or dry up the substrate and shrivel the freshly emerging seedling. Your pots/rockwool cubes should be placed in a space with ambient room temperature (ie. 24-26°C/75-78°F). In the winter use a small electric or gas heater to warm up your grow space. You can also switch on the HPS lamp and put the pots at a close distance underneath.

Once the seed sprouts in a glass of water or paper tissue it already has the taproot growing out of the cracked seed hull. While transplanting the germinated seed it is very difficult, indeed impossible, to prevent damage to the delicate taproot. Many sprouted seedlings handled in this way show retarded development, or even simply fail to appear out of the substrate after transplantation. Handling seedlings this way can impair the health & vigour of the plant for the duration of it’s life cycle – especially if other disturbing factors occur during the early stages of growth.

What happens if one uses pre-germination methods?

SOIL

Do not fertilize in the first weeks of growth on soil! This is the #1 cause for sick plants. Transplant into quality horticultural grade potting soil and bigger containers as the plants grow larger. Rootbound and sick plants should be avoided. Mandala plants grow quicker and more vigorously than most other strains. Do not let your good plants vegetate in tiny cups and cramped pots. You can get a high % of males or male flowers on your females if you do not care for your plants properly.

Please note: Cannabis seeds are a biological product. We therefore do not carry responsibility for germination rates once the seeds are dispatched to the resellers or customer. The reseller and customer is responsible for proper storage and handling of seeds.

We’re talking about media temperature not room temperature!

Then put the second plate over it

First variant:
So that the cannabis seed can germinate, you put it in garden soil. As soon as it is frost-free outside at night – this is certainly the case from mid-May – you can also place the pots in the open air. Put the cannabis seeds about one centimeter deep into the fresh seed soil, pour in a little water and close the hole with the seed. Make sure that the soil is moist, but not wet, otherwise the hemp seeds will start to rot. If you pull a thin plastic film over the pot, you create a greenhouse effect in it, in which the plant can really feel good. After about a week, the first shoot spikes out of the ground. Now the plant must always be kept moist. Sometimes, until the cannabis seeds germinate, you need a lot of patience.

Third variant:
If you want to make sure that your cannabis seeds germinate, you should choose the variant of Seeds66. Fill a cup with lukewarm water and soak your seeds for 12 hours. Then take two towels from kitchen paper or other paper towels and put them in a Petri dish or a flat plate. Moisten the cloths and put the seeds in between. Make sure that they still get air, so that the cannabis seed can germinate. Therefore, no foil should be covered over the bowl or the plate. In order for the cannabis seed to germinate, however, the kitchen paper must not dry out under any circumstances. If the fresh seedling sticks to the dry paper with its fine root hair, you will damage it if you want to remove it from the dry paper. And with a broken root, the hemp seed can not grow a healthy plant. In this variant, you can put the bowl either in the dark or in the light as there is a plate over it anyway. Much more important than the light is a uniform temperature so that the hemp seeds can germinate. 25 degrees Celsius is optimal. Once a small root grows, you pot the plants in fresh soil. Make sure you plant the germ down and place the small seed just below the ground. 5mm with earth covered is ptimal.

Hemp seeds are a natural product
Since hemp seeds are a natural product, only then can you be sure that plants will grow from the seeds when the hemp seeds germinate. Before the seed is not to see whether it germinates well or is lazy inside. Only after the cannabis seeds germinate is it sure that he was healthy. Once the cannabis seeds germinate, you should place them in the place where they can grow well and thrive.
