During this course I will teach you exactly how to germinate your seeds. Before you start growing, it’s nice to already have some basic knowledge on growing marijuana plants. In the Introduction to growing marijuana section I’ll familiarize you with growing marijuana, I’ll tell you what different types of marijuana exist and what the needs of a marijuana plant are in order to nicely grow and flower. I’ll also show you the equipment you need and how to install and use it.
I would advise you to take your time to read through those courses. You can have a great start with that basic knowledge in your head. But if you can’t wait and you want to start immediately, that’s also an option. In this series, I’ll give you a step by step guide on what you have to do and what you have to pay attention to. I took pictures of the progress of my plants every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and I’ll tell you about the things I’ve done.
In the meantime, I will provide you with all the knowledge you need in order to grow high quality marijuana. All subjects are discussed when they become relevant and are accompanied by nice photos. In the first week I’ll teach you for instance how much you should water your plants. And as soon as it’s time to transplant your plants, I’ll show you how it’s done through a series of photos with accompanying instructions. If certain things aren’t clear, you have the possibility of asking your fellow growers on the forum.
Have fun with this course!
How marijuana seeds work
Every marijuana plant starts out as a seed, and every seed needs water to germinate. The seed already contains a complete plant with root, stem and leaves. The seed also contains the required backup food to survive the first days. During germination, this backup food is converted into glucose the plant needs to grow.
Once a seed gets moist enough, it will swell up and crack open. The root comes out through the bud opening, and gravity causes it to grow downwards. It therefore doesn’t matter how you place a seed in the soil, because the root will always grow down. And the stem always grows upwards, against gravity.
There are many different ways to germinate your seeds, and I don’t think one method is better than another. The goal is the same, and if the circumstances are correct – sufficient moisture and the right temperature – all methods are effective. Of course I will explain all germination methods in this course, but I’ll use the method I’ve been successfully using for years as an example; first pre-germinate them in water and then keep germinating them in the soil.
