Rock Wool or Jiffy Cubes
If you’re looking to get started with hydroponics, you’ll need to decide what type of media you want to use. Two of the most popular options are jiffy cubes and rock wool. Both of these options have their own benefits and drawbacks, so it’s important to do your research before you decide which one is right for you.
Rock wool cubes is made from melted rocks that are spun into fibers. It’s an affordable option that drains well, but it can be difficult to work with and doesn’t hold nutrients as well as other media.
Jiffy cubes are made of peat moss and expand when they’re soaked in water. They’re simple to use and provide a good base for your plants. However, they can be a bit expensive and can become waterlogged if you’re not careful.
Once the cubes are moist, place them cubes in a germination tray. Sow the cannabis seeds about .5 inches (1.3 cm). Next, cover the germination tray to retain humidity. In just a few days your seeds will begin to sprout.
No matter which method you choose, there are a few things you need to do to ensure that your seeds germinate properly. First, you need to make sure that the seeds are fresh. Old seeds may not germinate at all, or they may produce weak plants. Next, you need to make sure that the conditions are right for germination. The seeds need to be kept warm, dark, and humid. Once the seeds have been placed in the appropriate conditions, it is simply a matter of waiting for them to germinate. This process can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
With a little patience and care, you’ll be able to grow your own healthy cannabis plants in no time!
