3 things to avoid when germinating your marijuana seeds
Written by Redacción Mota Radio on 7 November, 2022
Germinating marijuana seeds is usually a quick and easy process, however, there are several factors that you must take into account if you want to ensure that everything is a success.
Many are the mistakes that novice growers make, precisely in this post, we will tell you some of them so that you do not make mistakes when germinating your seeds.
1- Too much light
Seeds need a dark environment to germinate. It is best to germinate them indoors, in a dark closet.
Keep in mind that grow lights are not necessary until after germination.
2- Allowing seeds to germinate for too long
Another mistake some growers make when germinating marijuana seeds in paper or other similar mediums is to let the seed germinate until the cotyledons appear. When this happens, subsequent transplanting is very difficult.
To avoid inconveniences, the ideal is to plant the seeds when the main root measures 1 or 2 cm approximately. This will make transplanting much easier.
3- Germinating your seeds directly in the substrate
Germinating marijuana seeds directly in the soil is not wrong, however, it is not recommended to do it this way as it can lead to certain complications.
When you germinate your seeds in this way, you run the risk of them getting too deep in the soil, so the plants may not sprout.
