All About The Seedling Stage
Cannabis seedling stage is the earliest stage of cannabis cultivation. During this stage, seeds are planted and germinated to produce seedlings. This is a crucial step in the cannabis cultivating process and how the cannabis plant matures and grows throughout its life cycle is greatly influenced by how it is cared for during the seedling stage. When cannabis seeds are germinated, they need a combination of warmth, water, and oxygen to grow. Typically, a seedling needs temperatures of around 75-85°F and high levels of humidity (ideally between 60-80%). It's also important to make sure that the seedling's root system has enough oxygen by either air-pruning or providing adequate air circulation around the soil.
The cannabis seedling stage is also the time when growers need to begin to provide the proper light, nutrition, and environmental conditions necessary for the plant to develop and grow. This includes providing adequate light for photosynthesis and regulating the plant's temperature, humidity, and airflow.
During this stage, it’s also important to provide the proper nutrients to ensure that the plant has enough of the macronutrients, micronutrients, and trace elements that are necessary for it to produce healthy, abundant yields.
When done correctly, the cannabis seedling stage can be a rewarding step in the cannabis cultivation process. In addition to providing the proper environment, growers during this stage should also monitor the plants regularly to provide consistency with their growing conditions.
Finally, they should remain on the lookout for pests and diseases to ensure that the plants stay healthy and productive throughout the cultivation process.
