How many seeds do you need to grow a plant?
So how many seeds should be planted per hole, cell, or pot? In general, two to three seeds should be planted per hole. Seeds do not have 100% germination rates, so not every seed planted will sprout. Overseeding holes, cells, or pots will help ensure that the number of plants you desire will grow (or more!).
Can you plant a weed seed without germinating?
When you pay $20 or more per seed, you can see the concern. But if you aren’t worried or don’t care there is no need to watch them germinate. Just plant them and see what happens. Normally more than 90% would germinate without being watched.
Is it hard to grow a weed plant?
With strong weed no longer hard to find, home growing is a chance for connoisseurs to grow for CBD, a chemical commonly associated with the plant’s medicinal properties, or for a plant’s terpene profile (bouquet). Marijuana growing can be relatively straightforward or “as complicated as you want to make it”, Graf said.
What happens if you plant two different seeds together?
You should perform a germination test to what percent of the seeds sprout. If half of the ones you sow sprout. Then you plant multiple seeds into a hole. Generally if you plant multiple seeds into a hole, if both plants grow out you will have to cut, kill or transplant the secondary (usually weaker) plant.
Do you plant multiple seeds together?
Don’t add more than one large seed to a hole. If you’re attempting a specific number of plants or just want a fuller pot, plant the large seeds closer together. You can snip or pull out those that are too close. Remember, seedlings need good airflow around them to avoid damping off.
How do you start weed seeds in dirt?
Read here which 8 steps you have to take for this soil germination method.
- Step 1: Prepare your soil.
- Step 2: Watering the soil.
- Step 3: Placing the seed inside the soil.
- Step 4: Cover the seed and press gently.
- Step 5: Cover the pots with kitchen foil.
- Step 6: Poke some holes.
- Step 7: Wait for germination.
What’s the next step after germinating weed seeds?
Planting After Germination After germination, don’t touch the roots – or even the seed, if you can avoid it – and try to prevent the roots from being exposed to light for any length of time. Always place the seedling root-down into the hole in the soil or hydroponic medium.
Is Growing your own weed worth it?
If you plan to use a lot of cannabis or keeping growing season after season, then it’s a great investment, and absolutely worth it. “Sunk costs” make up a lot of that initial figure. Once you’ve set up your space and bought your fan, you’re likely not going to need to pay for it again.
How long does a weed plant live?
Cannabis is an annual flowering plant, its life cycle limited to just one season. In the wild, it grows from a seed, flowers, and dies, all between spring and fall.
Can you plant seeds close together?
Like most things in gardening, there are always exceptions to this rule of 2-3 seeds per hole. However, you can still plant seeds close together and then thin them out once they’ve established themselves. You just want to avoid crowding these large seeds together so you don’t mess up the germination process.
What happens if I plant too many seeds?
Do you plant all the seeds in a packet?
Always plant more seeds than you think you’ll need, as some of them likely won’t grow, and some plants may die before sprouting fully. Seeds out of packets can also be started in little starter cups — disposable paper cups or used paper egg cartons are ideal for this.
Too many seedlings in one pot. First grow.
hey guys, iv just started my first grow recently, I was given an old computer and decided to put the case to use. I know its a small space but im mainly doing it to learn at the moment rather than for yield, my expectations are pretty low.
My situation is this: I found some seeds in one of my bags a few months ago, put them in a shot glass to see if theyd germ, only one of them cracked, i assumed that would be the only seed that had a chance, I planted the rest anyway, now the rest have all popped after a couple days in the soil and now i have 4 seedlings in one small pot.
Im wondering what to do, shall I just keep one and pull the rest? If so, does anyone have a suggestion for which one to keep?
Is it hard to transplant a seedling that doesnt have its own small pot?
Heres a closer view:
Cover the top of the cup with your hand, gently squeeze the container, flip upside down so the plants and dirt are now in your hand. gently shift and shake the soil away until you have a good look at roots, separate roots carefully, drop into individual pots. It's okay if you break some of the little roots, they'll take it at this stage. Just be careful as can be not to break the taproot.
I encountered the same problem with my first grow. Surprisingly, if you are gentle and observant, you could easily transplant at least three of them into their own independent pots. If you have some kind of rooting inocculent, that will just ensure that they have a least stressful time reestablishing themselves. Just grab a hand trowel, or something along those lines, and very carefully remove each one while ensuring you get all, or most, of their root systems. They should be just fine if you do that. I've gone to the extent of transplanting many seedlings (other vegetables and cannabis alike) with the vigor of God – not even grabbing the "root ball" and just plucking them and their fragile root system without surrounding dirt. 90% of the time that has worked just fine, but I don't recommend doing it haha
