The method of starting to grow Cannabis is the first major step towards ensuring that crops are produced as a result of the growth process. Once the seed is initiated with life, the Cannabis plants like any other plants starts maturing into a sprout from a seed. The different forms of germination of Ruderalis are as follows .
Germination of Cannabis seeds in soil
This method serves well once you have healthy and fresh form of seeds. The process starts with placing the seeds in pots under moist form of soil. The germination kind of soil is the ideal for this as it has the right mix of nutrients for the plants. Avoid using soil with 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 foils to absorb humidity. The pots should be placed in warm area and after few days shoots with cotyledons come up. This is 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 more damp clothes. You can provide some form of upside down equipment 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 which 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. Water is soaked in and makes the shell to soften down but not for more than 24 hrs. The seeds could then be placed in soil for germination.
Germination of Cannabis in Special medium
This involves germination of seeds in Rockwool. The Rockwool is 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.
