how to fertilize weed seeds

Seeds should be placed on top of the tissue, allowing each seed as much space as possible.

Lastly, cover everything with the second plate, upside down, to form a ‘clam-shell’ shape – this will create the dark, moist environment necessary for germination.

Step 1. The setup – How to germinate cannabis seeds

Check the seeds every day to ensure that the tissue does not dry out. Spray the tissues with water if necessary.

Place another few layers of moist tissue on top of the seeds, again allowing excess water to drain off.

Place the plates somewhere warm (21ºC) and away from direct light.

Marijuana plants also require secondary nutrients, which include sulfur, calcium, and magnesium.

Finally, there is a more expansive group of trace, or micro, nutrients that boost marijuana plant growth. These essential micronutrients include zinc, manganese, iron, boron, chloride, cobalt, molybdenum, and silicon, among others.

What nutrients do cannabis plants need?

In simple terms, fertilizer is plant food made from natural or industrially produced substances that growers apply to soil and plants to optimize growth. The nutrients in fertilizers may be beneficial to many different plants, including potted houseplants, flowers like roses and hydrangeas, and cannabis.

One upside of synthetic fertilizers is that they tend to work faster than organic fertilizers. They may also be less time consuming and make a good choice for growers who prefer not to get their hands too dirty.
