When it comes to growing cannabis seeds there are many different things you need to know. If you are new to growing cannabis you need to know that it can be an incredibly rewarding hobby. However if you choose the wrong method you will find that growing your own cannabis seedlings can be very difficult and time consuming.
The male plant must be fertilised by a female plant for it to grow. When this happens the male flower will create small seeds which will then be dispersed throughout the growing area. There are also some hermaphrodites – plants which have both male and female sexual organs.
Male cannabis seedlings need to be sown as soon as the female plants have bloomed. This is a very important part of the process. It is when the female flowers begin to develop that male seeds will have the opportunity to sprout. In fact, seeds can be germinated so soon after they are released from the female plant that they are actually visible in the ground before they have even had a chance to get to the soil. Many people do not understand that this can happen because seedlings are so fragile seeds can be broken or damaged easily.
Male cannabis seedlings can be planted in one inch of soil in the winter. A lot of people mistakenly believe that these types of seeds are only suitable for being sown in their garden, but in fact they can be successfully grown in a hydroponic system. When you are growing these seeds you need to be sure that you do not over water them. This can lead to them becoming weak and eventually die and then they will never have any hope of germination again.
As mentioned before, female cannabis plants must be pollinated before they can produce seeds. If the male flower has not already been pollinated, the male flower must be fertilised by the female flower. This can be done with a little help from the male flower but it is usually a matter of a few drops of olive oil being poured onto the male flower must be covered in it.
Once the male flower is ready, it is now time to plant the plants. It is very important that you do not overcrowd the plant. It is common practice to use between two and six cannabis plants. The main idea here is to ensure that the plant is full of male cannabis seedlings and that you are providing nourishment for the plants.
Plant one male flower at a time then cover in olive oil over the entire plant. This will prevent the seedling from rotting off and the olive oil will also stop it from absorbing any other chemicals that may have been applied to it.
When it is time to harvest the plants, carefully remove the male flowers without damaging them and leave the female ones. They are ready to harvest when the seeds are completely dry. Do not take the seeds and plant them on the ground to dry.
Once all of the male cannabis seedlings have been removed, you should remove the olive oil and allow the female flowers to remain on the plant for around six weeks. At this stage you should remove the leaves that are no longer attached to the buds.
After this is completed you should trim off the buds until you have about one third of the original height of the flower. If you are growing this type of plant outdoors, you may want to cover it up for the winter months. As far as planting the plant goes, you will need to cover the plant in sand and water it as usual.
You will then start to see your plants begin to sprout the new shoots after three to four days. Once you are able to see these new growths, you will need to place the flowers in the same pot.
When these female flowers start to grow, you can then prune the plant and harvest the plant on a daily basis as normal. The plant should not be over-watered and if you find any damage on the plant, the best thing you can do is water it and then report it to get back to the state it was in when you first planted it. The plant will still have the correct amount of nutrients to grow.
