Properly starting to grow Cannabis is the first major step towards ensuring that crops produced get the best result in the growth process. Once the seed is initiated with life, the Cannabis plants like any other plant will start maturing into a sprout. The different germination methods for Ruderalis are as follows.
Germination of Cannabis seeds in the soil
This method serves well once you have healthy and fresh forms of seeds. The process starts with placing the seeds in pots under the moist soil. The germination kind of soil is ideal for this as it has the right mix of nutrients for the plants. Avoid using soil with an excessive amount of nutrients as it might damage the plants. The seeds should ideally be placed at 3 – 5 mm underneath the soil and covered up. The soil should be damp and the tops of pots could be covered with kitchen foil to absorb humidity. The pots should be placed in a warm area and after a few days shoots with cotyledons come up. This is the time when you place the plant under light and allow germination.
Germination of Cannabis in Towel
This method requires the seeds to be placed in a damp towel or some form of cotton wool. The seeds should be properly covered with another damp towel. You can place some form of material upside-down to shelter the seeds and protect them from humidity. Never allow the seeds to dry as it increases the risk of damage. Once you see tap roots coming out, place the seeds in the growing medium carefully using tweezers and allow germination.
Germination of Cannabis in Water
This method serves well for seeds that have been stored for a long time and as a result, the shells of the seeds have become hard. Place such seeds in a glass filled with distilled water. Seeds are soaked in and make the shells soften down but not more than 24 hrs. The seeds could then be placed in soil for germination.
Germination of Cannabis in Special medium
This involves the germination of seeds in Rockwool. The Rockwool has a specialized tray with holes in it for placing seeds. Through these holes, light, air and nutrients are absorbed by the seeds. Once properly set up, the seeds could be placed in the soil for germination.
