For my germination process i use the papertowl method which you can find a video of at:
we always want to plant root down to maximize our successrate. you gonna wanna punch a hole in the dirt with a pencil of about half a centimeter to insert the germinated seed and cover it. note: i like to use cutting soil as a growing medium which has given me the most success in germinating. i have had bad results using other kinds of soils.. if your starting soil has too much nutrients your seedlings will burn.
during de vegetative process you gonna want to give atleast 16hours of light a day. if you give less then 15 hours of light a day or close to 12 hours of light a day your seedling will probably stress out and die. i like to keep my newborns close under a 1600w LED light. so they tend to grow wider from the start instead of stretching out seeking for light. here is the LED light i've been using for quite a while: https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/NEW-DOUBLE-CHIPS-10WX80-2015-Biosun-Full-Spectrum-LED-grow-light-for-Medical-Flower-Plants-Grow/32421001920.html?spm=2114.13010608.0.0.KMyMmJ
not enough light:
i do not recommend giving your seedlings any supplements or nutrients, excess of nutrients will burn your seeling. example of a burned seedling:
you can also place your new seedlings inside of a greenhouse if the days are longer then 14 hours:
i usually do not give any nutrients until the first deficiency symptom starts showing up, here's a chart to recognize deficiencies:
we want to start topping immediately after the plant has grown 3 nodes high, but i will leave this topic for the next part in this "guide".
in the next parts of this guide i will discuss topping(soft pinching), low-stress training, cloning, lolipopping, diseases, pests, prevention, flowering, harvesting, trimming, drying, curing, cbd-oil, hash(cold extraction), cannabutter, smoking and eating pizza
i will most likely rewrite this part of the guide later, add more information, correct spelling, rephrase sentences, etc.. i will repost a revised version when editing this blog is no longer possible.
