Growing cannabis seeds in a propagator

No matter if you have a large cannabis growing operation or are an amateur just beginning your first seedlings, making use of propagators is a great way to control growing conditions and speed up your seed germination. A propagator allows you to take full control of your growing conditions, allowing you to germinate and grow your seeds and seedlings in a safe, moist and warm environment to give them an optimum chance of becoming healthy and high yielding plants.

Any propagators can be used to grow cannabis, as they come standardised with a thermometer and built in LED Lights. They can either be powered by batteries or electricity, and allow you to control the environment within the container. Seedlings can sprout up to 30% faster when you use a propagator and the environment is much safer as you can fully control the heat and moisture content, and you cannabis seeds will also be less susceptible to damage by insects or disease. Seedlings can be kept in the propagators until they sprout their first set of leaves. This ensures that they will get a good start and grow into healthy, high yielding plants.

The remaining Zambeza Supermix can be used to sprinkle on the pots; however, it is important to make sure that you don’t completely wet them, simply moistening them is enough. Don’t ever place the seeds directly in the perlite because this isn’t a suitable environment for the germination of your seeds.

The nifty little Micro Propagator includes:

Normally, the germination period for the marijuana seeds is around 1 to 6 days. Once the seed leaves have completely emerged, start removing the seedling from the propagator. This helps prevent entanglement of the root at the bottom. Moreover, you may utilize the Micro Propagator as a shielding nursery for weak seedlings and starting clones. Also, ensure that the germinated seeds are not left in for a long period of time, after the seeds have sprouted. This will help prevent the entanglement of the roots.

Micro Propagator: Comes with everything for optimal germination

You just need to cover the the propagator’s bottom with the perlite, then start mixing the water with Zambeza Supermix, which comes with the Seedkit. Now pour around 25 ml of the fluid over the perlite, it`ll retain and give out moisture as the seeds sprout. Following the instructions mentioned on the Zambeza Seedkit, place your seeds in the pots. The holes present in the bottom of each pot will enable the roots to suck up the water that is bacterial-enriched.

Good afternoon A,

Once the young plants produce their second or third pair of serrated leaves, or if they grow taller than about 7 cm with only the first pair, the cover of the propagator should be removed. A small oscillating fan on the lowest setting is a good way to give indoor plants the air movement they need, while outdoor plants can start to receive the natural outdoor air movement when they have reached this size.
