Do weed seeds need light to grow

Bonjour,
Concernant les tubes fluorescents normaux ( 18-36 W ), que me conseiller vous ?
Tubes normaux de couleur blanche, ou tubes horticoles de couleur rosée ( comme ceux qu’ont peut trouver sur les aquariums ).
Merci pour vos réponses.

Thanks for getting in touch with us!
Of course it would help, however, there is nothing better than the suns rays!
Fortunately, These articles on Lighting Systems: LED vs HPS light and When can seedlings be put under lights or in the sun? may be of interest to you.

Not sure whether to grow your cannabis seeds in the sun or under lights? This article explains how much light you need, how to prevent your seedlings from falling over, and when to plant them outside.

When to plant your cannabis seedlings outside?

Good morning Susie,

If cannabis seedlings grow tall and then fall over, this is almost always a result of growing in an environment with static air.

With best wishes,

Are your cannabis seedlings falling over?

Starting with about three hours outside, at the sunniest time of day, seedlings can be given an extra hour of outside exposure each day, so that within about two weeks they can be left outdoors permanently.

I had 20 plants just fall over I growning them inside .I put outside for a few hours got up the next morning.they were laying over.and I like to know why?

Air & Oxygen: Sow seeds twice as deep as the width of the seed. For example, 0.125-inch (3 mm) seeds should be planted 0.25 inches (6 mm) deep. Adequate oxygen is un- available for seeds planted too deeply, and tender seedlings have insufficient stored energy to drive through deep layers of soil or crusty hard soil when sprouting.

Once seeds are rooted, cell growth accelerates; stem, foliage, and roots develop quickly. Seedlings develop into full vegetative growth within 4 to 6 weeks of germination.

Cannabis seeds need only water, heat, and air to break dormancy and germinate; they do not need extra hormones, fertilizers, or additives. Seeds sprout without light in a range of temperatures. Strong, viable, properly nurtured seeds germinate in 2 to 7 days. At germination, the outside protective shell of the seed splits, and a tiny, white sprout (radicle) pops out. This sprout is the root, or taproot. Cotyledon, or seed, leaves emerge on a stem from within the shell as they push upward in search of light.

Seeds are Prompted to Germinate By:

Temperature: Overall, cannabis seeds germinate in temperatures from 70°F–90°F (21°C–32°C) and grow best at 78°F (26°C). Temperatures below 70°F (21°C) and above 90°F (32°C) impair germination. Low temperatures delay germination. High temperatures upset seed chemistry causing poor germination. Seeds germinate best under the native conditions and temperature ranges where they were grown.

At 36 to 96 hours – Water is absorbed, root tip (radicle) pops through outer shell and is visible.
At 10 to 14 days – First roots and root hairs become visible.
At 21 to 30 days – At least half of seeds are rooted by day 21. Seeds not rooted by day 30 will probably grow slowly.

Ancient Babylonians and Egyptians planted and harvested based on moon phases in relation to geographic location. The premise is that plants grow better when planted during the appropriate moon phase.

Timeline for Germinating Most Seeds:

water
temperature
air (oxygen)

Cannabis gardeners who plant by the moon report faster-sprouting seeds that grow into vigorous plants. However, scientific evidence is lacking in regard to cannabis and other plants’ relationship with agricultural astrology.
