When your cannabis seeds have germinated, the next thing you will do is to take care your seedlings. Your marijuana plants are now starting their life cycle and they need a care from you because they are at a vulnerable stage.
First step after germination: Provide your seedlings enough amount of sunlight after germination. Light plays an important role in growing cannabis and since its life is starting to grow, give them enough but not too much sunlight to let them progress.
Second step after germination: Plan the process of transplanting
Soil or hydro? These are the questions you need to answer. You may transplant your seedling in soil if you will choose the soil as your growing medium. On the other hand, if you wanted to grow weeds hydroponically, start to prepare the setup for your hydroponics growing.
Third step after germination: Choose the right growing container
Choosing a suitable container for your seedling is vital because it’s not good if you will transplant your cannabis plants many times. This will cause shock to your plants which may lead to a variety of issues like hermaphroditing or death of the plant . There are different containers available in garden stores and each has its own features that will give benefit to your plants.
Fourth step: Avoid application of fertilizer
Your seedlings will not need fertilizer yet, in fact, putting fertilizer to the soil will cause them to become sick. When you transplant your cannabis plants, choose a good soil which is naturally rich in nutrients and minerals.
