Now that your water is ready, dig a hole that’s a little smaller than the Rapid Rooter, and place your seedling plug inside. The idea is to let the Rapid Rooter stick up above the soil a little to help the roots get more oxygen. It’s okay if the plug goes in flat with the soil, but don’t bury the stem as that can cause stem rot in some cases. Even if you’ve got a tall seedling, you usually won’t notice the extra length once the plant is bigger.
Soon you’ll have healthy cannabis plants to admire
Paper Towel Method – Place your seeds inside a folded wet paper towel (Important: use cheap brand!)
2.) Prepare Your Soil or Coco Containers
Example of cannabis seedlings growing in coco coir, about to get seedling-strength nutrient water. If they were in soil, I would give plain water for the first few weeks.
Wet a paper towel (use the cheapest brand you can find). If growing multiple strains, you may want to label the paper towel so you know which is which. Place each seed on the wet paper towel next to their label.
This step-by-step tutorial will teach you how to germinate seeds and provide basic seedling care
Your seedlings get a little extra oxygen if you let the Rapid Rooter stick up into the air slightly as opposed to burying it.
Germinating Cannabis Seeds – Growing your own weed is one of the most rewarding experiences in life! Growing cannabis allows you to discover phenotypes that no one else has ever experienced.
5. Soak the Rapid Rooters in plain, room temperature water (tap, filtered, or RO water is fine) (3).
When you set out to germinate your cannabis seeds, you must understand and replicate the natural systems and environments that help seeds flourish. In nature, annual plants (such as cannabis) create seeds because the plants are dying and will need to preserve their genetics during the harsh months to come. These seeds must be hearty enough to withstand cold, heat, drought, animal digestion, insects, and many other types of adversity. Seeds typically undergo germination when conditions are warm with rainy, creating a moist environment.
Together, we can add to this multi-millennia relationship and play a part in the beautiful history of cannabis.
When growing from seed, you have control over every aspect of the product you produce. You can pick flavors and effects that you enjoy, making your strain selections unique and personal.
1. Take a clean shot glass and fill it with room temperature water (tap, filtered, or reverse osmosis water is fine).
Also cut off a small piece of the plug and gently placed over the holes.
They are under 2 23w CFL’s.
Is this going to work?
I placed them in small rapid rooter plugs (dunked them in 6.0ph water then rang them out) and put a small humidity dome over the top.
2-3) inches. For this reason, and to prevent the media from drying out very quickly, it is recommended to start seeds in a container at least 3.5-4 inches deep. This way the tap root has sufficient room to stretch out from the outset. The seedlings also wont have to be handled so much. You can use Rooters to germ Cannabis seeds, but you’re going to want to transplant them into a larger container relatively soon after they sprout. Right after they sprout you should see a taproot hanging out of the plug, which isn’t really a good thing.
