cannabis seed stuck on tip of seedling

How to remove the seed shell from a Cannabis seedling

If the shell is still too difficult to remove after applying some water, repeat the process again.

In this guide I will explain how to remove the seeds outer shell from the seedling without causing any damage to the plant.

Why does the shell get stuck to the seedling?

Every Cannabis grower has had to deal with a seed’s shell getting stuck to the newly sprouted plant. It’s not a major issue, but if left too long it can cause damage to your young seedling.

What causes this? Most of the time you will see this with highly resinous Indica plants. Yes, even at that early of an age their resin can be that strong. Noticed it with 3 out of 6 LA Cons I recently popped. It is a good thing, but be careful not to rip either of your first 2 leaves, b/.c those provide the plant with 100% of its nutes until it is ready for nutes! Good luck, and it sounds like you have a good strain!

the cotyledons were yellow but as soon as the light started to get at them they started producing energy and straightening up and unfolding and got green
