The first decision that needs to be made when growing Marijuana seeds In Georgia is to decide which method you want to grow. There is more than one way to grow Marijuana seeds but it certainly can be kept simple and effective.
Although indoor and outdoor growing requires different skills and techniques, both need the Marijuana seeds to be successfully germinated. There are many methods for germinating Marijuana seeds, you could use the natural outdoor method of planting the Marijuana seed directly into the soil, about two centimeters deep, cover the seed and keep it warm and watered. A cut plastic bottle or glass jar turned upside down makes a great miniature greenhouse, trapping moisture and warm air. After a few days the seed will have sprouted, although certain strains and seeds require a day or two longer.
Another method for germinating the seeds is to put the seed inside several moist paper towels. You can also use a damp sponge for this. It is important to keep the paper towels or kitchen roll moist, never allowing it to dry out until you see the seeds sprouting. It is possible for seeds to be ready for planting within 24 hours or as long as a week. After germinating the seeds this way, they will need to be planted into the soil. This should be done as soon as you have seen the seed cracking open to allow the tap root to take hold. Keep the soil moist but not wet, and keeping it covered with a propagator lid will help retain moisture.
Be sure to give your new plants as much light as possible once they begin to grow. For indoor growers, fluorescent lights should be only about two inches away from the soil, and should not be moved upwards until the seedling has grown a decent amount. Many cannabis gardeners allow their young seedlings light for twenty-four hours a day to attain maximum growth, while others grow under eighteen or twenty hours per day, believing the young seedling requires a rest period.
The second stage of the cannabis plants life is its vegetative stage, when it will produce most of its leaves, branches, and height. Its stem will become thicker and stronger, and the plant will be growing many new leaves very quickly, almost daily. The vegetative phase is very important in allowing the plant to obtain as much sunlight as possible (as the leaves absorb this energy), and therefore will contribute to a healthy flowering phase later using all the energy it had acquired. A larger cannabis plant means a greater quantity of buds, so you should take the vegetative stage seriously.
Even though most of the marijuana plants growth occurs during the vegetative stages, the plant still grows while flowering. If you are growing a plant for personal consumption, then just 30 days of the vegetative phase would be about right. Using certain growing techniques it is possible to minimize the vegetative stage to as short as two weeks, while still achieve good growth, it often depends on which type of cannabis seeds you planted and the conditions they are growing in.
More experienced growers use training techniques to increase lateral branching and growth, thus maximizing growth without growing too huge for the indoor space that they have.
With indoor marijuana seeds, you will have to provide for all the plant’s needs. Selecting the best growing medium, the Ph levels and when to water, the nutrients, and even the “sun” all provided by you. The quality and number of hours of light that Cannabis seeds receive is vital when growing plants as you move from the vegetative stages into flowering you will have to change the number of hours of light that your plant is exposed to — in fact, it’s actually the amount of hours of darkness that activates their progression from vegetative to the flowering phase..
The flowering stage starts by reducing the exposure of the cannabis plant to twelve hours of “sunlight” (or lamp-light, as it were) and, 12 hours of uninterrupted darkness. During this stage it is important that the darkness is total and allows no light to penetrate, as this will cause the plant to hermaphrodite or produce rogue male flowers in the later flowering stage. During this time it is also important that the Twelve light hours your cannabis plants gets should be as strong as possible to maximize the bud sizes.
The beauty of growing cannabis plants in pots is that you can move them to wherever you want it, whenever you need to. To achieve the plants maximum flowering potential, it must have 12 hours of total darkness, many people move their plants to an enclosed indoor space, such as a closet or cabinet. If you are going to keep them in there. set up your lighting so that you are able to expose the plant to its 12 hours of lighting and 12 hours of darkness perfectly. Using an outlet timer is probably your best option because it leaves out any room for error..
Remember, make sure the 12 hours of darkness are completely uninterrupted. If any light that gets into the growing area (i.e. if you accidentally open the door during the 12 hours of darkness), even for a second, the plants may begin to get confused leading to them becoming stressed. This stress can produce a range of problems, one of which is the plant turning into a hermaphrodite, producing both male and female flowers, or else it may simply have a lower quality and lesser quantity yield as they mature. The flowering stage lasts approximately 56 to 70 days, and it will remain in this phase until mature and ready to harvest.
