lighting for cannabis seedlings

Lighting for cannabis seedlings

“When can cannabis seedlings be put under lights or in the sun?” is a common and sensible question that is often asked by novice cannabis enthusiasts after germinating seeds indoors under lights.

Seedlings intended for outdoor growing should be kept by a sunny window for the first week or two after emerging from the soil.
If cannabis seedlings grow tall and then fall over, this is almost always a result of growing in an environment with static air.

If outdoor temperatures are suitable, seedlings may be acclimatised to direct sunlight by giving them progressively longer daily exposure to outdoor conditions.
Cannabis seedlings growing under lights should always be given a gentle breeze from an oscillating fan (a small household fan on the lowest setting is fine), as constant gentle movement will strengthen their stems significantly.
If using normal fluorescent tubes (18-36w), seedlings can be kept within a few centimetres of the light source.
When using HID lighting (usually a metal halide lamp), young seedlings should be kept at least 50cm from the bulb.
With compact fluorescent lamps (usually 100w or more), a distance of around 15cm should be maintained between the top of the young seedlings and the bulb.

Seedlings can be kept by a sunny window, until they’re ready to grow outside.

When cannabis seedlings have grown their second or third set of serrated leaves they are usually hardy enough to flourish in direct sunlight. Learn when that is and how to do that now.

Outdoors
If you’re growing cannabis outdoors with seeds, you should wait until a few weeks after the spring equinox to put your seeds outside. In the northern hemisphere this means seeds go outside in-or-after April, In the southern hemisphere seeds go outside in-or-after October.

What keeps cannabis in the vegetative stage?
Cannabis is a “photoperiod” plant, which means the amount of light received each day decides when the plant starts flowering or making buds. This article explains how much light a day your photoperiod cannabis plants need to grow and start budding, so you get to a happy harvest day. What about auto-flowering strains?
The indoor grower will need to artificially induce flowering/budding in plants by changing the light schedule so the plant receives only 12 hours of light a day, and 12 hours of uninterrupted darkness.

heat stress weed

Large ridges between veins on new growth and lots of curled leaf fringes – See bottom right pic here:

Few days later, upper leave stems showing a bit of purple. Taco’d leaves unchanged. Upper part of plant remains kind of olive. New growth appears succulent, less pronounced ridges, reduced leaf size and narrow, reduced vigor in upper growth. Lower growth remains lush and healthy.
Theory is that with hi temps, this one started to dry up, drank up most of the water in the soil. EC went up from the calmag salts, and with less water in the soil, salt concentration went too high.

Looking for input on best way to facilitate recovery from heat stress and salts.
Seemed to even be some white salt deposits on some upper leaves.
Seems unlikely to be Mg related with this high of calmag. Prior to arriving at the above now apparently obvious theory, tried a small spot foliar treatment of Mg just to be sure – no affect. Tried some spot foliar treatments of micros, mild tiger bloom, kelp. No affect. Large plant, easy to do a few spot treatments and not affect the whole thing.
Would like to do all possible to facility quick and full recovery.
Lots of kelp? Water/foliar?

Would aspirin / salicylic acid be worth while? What recipe and best way to apply?

Heat stress weed

Heat during the flowering stage also causes fox-tails, which are airy and don’t have much substance to them. It’s basically the same response as growing new buds on top, it just looks a little different on some plants. The plant is basically “abandoning” the original heat-damaged bud to try to make a sad new one.

It is possible to partially shield your plants when you know the temperature is going to get hot. You can also adjust your watering schedule to make sure plants at least have plenty of water.
Even though the grow lights were turned off, this is what happened to an indica-leaning plant overnight after being exposed to 105°F (40°C) temperatures during a heat wave.

Example of unwanted “fox-tailing” caused by too much heat
When the heat gets too high, the edges of the serrated leaves will begin to curl up even if there are no burns or other signs of light stress.
Indoors, find a way to lower the temperature and/or increase the circulation in the grow room or grow area if heat is the problem. Having a small fan blowing over the tops of your plants will help prevent hot spots from forming directly under your grow lights. How far away should you keep your grow lights from your plants?
An oscillating fan will circulate air in the room as well as provide a gentle breeze for your plants, and a small one will cost less than $20.
When the heat gets too high, the edges of the leaves will begin to curl up and the leaves will begin to “cup.”

If flowering cannabis plants are grown under too-hot conditions for a long time, sometimes they respond by growing new buds on top of the old ones. When you see extensive growth on top of the buds closest to the grow lights, that’s a sign that the grow light is too close or the temperature is too high. Some people call the new growth (which often grows in spires) “fox tails.”

Hummingbird nectar collector

Just like a quartz banger, the dish can withstand extremely high temperature and quite easy to clean. Some prefer to dab from a silicone jar, that’s just personal choices, silicone jars work the same.

The body also acts as a handle for you to hold when you dab, it’ll have some raised clear marbles on the side so you can have a firmer grip and also pretty to look at.
The glass is obviously not the go-to material for the job since glass is very easy to break when exposing to a massive amount of heat in a short period of time, so almost all the manufacturers go with quartz to make a dish for containers.

A Mouthpiece Tube. Most of the dab straws need to extend their length for use, you don’t want to get too close to the red-hot quartz/titanium tip and you want to add some more length for the vapor to chill a bit more for a smoother rip, so a removable mouthpiece is always the standard accessory.
The Price – nectar collectors are, most of the time, a lot cheap comparing to a set of dab rig and quartz banger. The 10mm mini nectar collector set listed on PuffingBird.com only costs $14.99, and the silicone nectar collector costs only $13.99, so they are easily affordable and can get you through the door if you are interested in dabbing as a new dabber.
The quartz tip or titanium nail for nectar collectors typically comes in two sizes, 10mm and 14mm, and the joint sex is always male, they are very easy to find and purchase on any online or local headshops.
A Recycler Body That Contains Water For Filtration. No matter the size, a complete nectar collector set needs to have a filtration system that runs on water, it acts like your dab rig which also requires a certain amount of water for chilling the vapor and for filtration as well.
Glass Nectar collectors, however, solve those problems easily, you can detach the quartz tip, the body, and the mouthpiece into 3 parts and place them in separate compartments in your backpack, and you won’t feel a thing carrying them.

The mouthpiece looks a straight tube with a flared top. Some brands even come up with the idea of redesigning the mouthpiece and turn it into a connection piece which you can connect it to your bong or dab rig! Super dope design indeed.

Nectar collectors, honey straws or dab sticks are becoming more and more of a fashionable choice for consuming dabs and provides maximum portability and convenience. Here's on Puffing Bird, we have a wide range of nectar collector kits for sale along with accessories. Free Shipping For All Orders!

building a stealth grow box

Building a stealth grow box

We learned above that the cabinet is 24″ deep. Now this Cool Tube was 20″, hardly enough room to attach two 6″ flex ducts for ventilation without having to keep a door open.

Was the cabinet in the above article a little too much for your sensibilities? Then check out these pics by one of our awesome readers!
After the initial investment, $1.64 was my total cost per gram when I factored electricity, carbon filter, and nutrients.

Next to the fan room is space for other more technical things. Here we find the ballast and command switching station.
Final Harvest Weight: 264 grams (9.3 Ounces)
Now that my fan room was set up, I allowed the exhaust to escape upward into a carbon filter. I mounted the filter inside a Rubbermaid tote to make the whole setup more discrete.
This allowed three different height settings for the light. The unused two positions are capped off. Take a look…
See Another Stealth Grow Cabinet in Action and Build Your Own!

Next, I faced the issue of providing my plants their light.

See how one grower built his own stealthy grow cabinet (in pictures), then learn how to build your own!

I would need an exhaust fan unless I can use the carbon filter for that, plus an intake fan unless I can just use an ordinary portable fan.

  • If possible a switch board to set the light timer, CO2, and view the temperature too.
  • Also, I don’t know if it’s possible to make it hydro or soil, I’d prefer hydro, but maybe that’s asking to much for a beginner.

    I assume I’d need a PH tool to measure the soil and water and any other tools needed.

    I want it to be safe from fires or electrical problems. So if I go away for the day or week-end I don’t have to worry about it.

    A reflective inside to help use all light sources.

    An automatic CO2 pump to keep levels at 1800 parts per million.

      I want to produce at least 8-16+ ounces or more of dried herbs per yield. (So I think I’d need about 9 plants+)

    I’m very interested in growing and I’m new to it.

    If possible a timer for lights would be good, so I can set it for 18-24 hours or 12/12 just in-case I forget or I’m away.

    Hi Everyone, I'm very interested in growing and I'm new to it. Hopefully I can get some tips and help to build a stealth grow box or cabinet. Here is…

    Michigan cbd

    Located conveniently right on 8 Mile Rd., King Seaweed (3600 E 8 Mile Rd, Detroit, MI 48234) offers topical and homeopathic CBD oil products, in addition to accessories, edibles, and more. With a wall-to-wall selection, customers are sure to appreciate the shop’s excellent inventory and hand-picked, premium CBD oils. Open seven days a week, no appointments required: Monday-Sunday 10AM-8PM.

    CBD Shops in Detroit
    There are a couple CBD oil shops in Detroit worth checking out.
    Hemp-derived CBD is legal for medicinal and recreational use statewide in Michigan. Industrial hemp was first defined as legally separate from marijuana in 2014 so CBD sourced from industrial hemp has been essentially legal since that time. Now that the state has made even more progress in regards to cannabis, you will have no problem purchasing CBD in a dispensary or through an online retailer as a resident. We’d like to note, though, that as of March of 2019, foods and beverages that contain CBD as an additive, regardless of its origin, are considered illegal by the Michigan state legislature.

    CBD Shops in Westland, Garden City, and Livonia
    Metro Smokers Shop (8155 N Middlebelt Rd, Westland, MI 48185) is a 4.5-star rated location with premium CBD oil products, liquids and powders, kratom caps, creams, accessories, and much more. The owner and staff are friendly and eager to help customers navigate the store’s selection. Reviewers also note that Metro has some of the lowest prices around; on Yelp, there are numerous promotions, including a a $10 for $15 voucher, %15 discount, and gift certificate. Open seven days a week: Monday-Saturday 9AM-8PM; Sunday 10AM-7PM.
    Are you looking for places to buy CBD oil in Michigan? We’ve got you covered. Below you’ll find our review of places you can buy CBD in Michigan, with a focus on the Detroit metropolitan area. You can also order CBD oil products online.
    Medical marijuana use was first legalized in Michigan in 2008. Recreational marijuana use was approved towards the end of 2018. As of right now, only one dispensary has opened its doors, but there are undoubtedly more on the way. Due to recreational marijuana use being legal for those over the age of 21, marijuana-derived CBD products are also legal if you’re of age. If you’re not of age, you can’t use marijuana-derived CBD recreationally; however, you may be eligible for a medical marijuana license which would grant you access. Marijuana-derived CBD is the same as hemp-derived CBD, though, so this isn’t something you need to worry about.
    The Jazz Club Detroit (16890 Telegraph Rd, Detroit, MI 48219) is one of the most popular CBD shops in Detroit, with a perfect 5-star rating, thanks to its wide variety of premium CBD products available at some of the best prices in the city. Established in 2015, the shop offers CBD oil pens, waxes, concentrates, capsules, and more. The staff is highly knowledgeable and happy to answer any and all of your questions about CBD oil products in general and Jazz Club’s selection. The shop also offers daily specials worth keeping an eye on, so be sure to check their website and social media feeds for the best deals. Open seven days a week, no appointments required: Monday-Sunday 10AM-8PM.

    Michigan cbd

    CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis and the second-most prominent in the plant after THC, which is mostly responsible for producing an intoxicating high. CBD can be sourced either from marijuana or hemp plants and has a wide range of potential therapeutic benefits.

    According to guidelines recently released by Michigan Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, CBD products produced from marijuana will not be regulated as marijuana if the THC content is below 0.3%. Products derived from industrial hemp with a THC concentration above 0.3% are classified as marijuana and regulated under the laws that apply to those products through the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.
    In addition to the federal regulation of CBD, the Farm Bill also gave states the option to regulate and prohibit the cultivation and commerce of CBD. States may regulate CBD in food, beverages, dietary supplements, and cosmetic products independently, even before the FDA finalizes its policies.

    Submitting falsified samples for testing is considered a felony, which carries a penalty of between one and two years in prison and a $5000 fine.
    While there are no specified limits for CBD derived from cannabis, there are limits for cannabis possession. First-time offenders in possession of more than 2.5 ounces and up to 5 ounces may be charged with a civil infraction and fined up to $500. First-time offenders in possession of more than five ounces may be charged with a misdemeanor and fined up to $500.
    Only facilities licensed by the Bureau of Marijuana Regulation (BMR) can commercially grow, process, and sell marijuana and marijuana products, such as cannabis-derived CBD. The commerce of recreational cannabis was enacted in December 2019.
    Most reputable CBD producers typically include the following information on their CBD product labels:
    Still, the agency warns that regulations in flux still require companies to make legitimate claims on their labels. Buyers should nonetheless approach CBD products with caution. A CBD product should clearly state what kind of CBD is used.

    This legislation also established a state licensing program through the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) for industrial hemp growers, processors, and handlers. However, Michigan’s proposed licensing program has yet to be approved by the USDA. In the meantime, those who wish to grow, process or handle hemp must participate in Michigan’s existing Industrial Hemp Ag-Pilot Program for the 2020 growing season to meet state and federal expectations.

    indica or sativa for depression

    Indica or sativa for depression

    Cannabinoid profile: THC-dominant

    Primary terpenes: Myrcene, caryophyllene, pinene
    Despite these complexities, there are individuals who claim that cannabis helps them through depression. For some, cannabis can imbue the mind with an elevated sense of engagement and motivation. It can stimulate hunger, conversation with friends, and interest in hobbies and creative escapes. We highly encourage you to communicate with your medical professional to determine how cannabis may interfere with your current treatments and medications .

    Can’t seem to shake those late-night thoughts keeping you up? Let Blackberry Kush ease you into sleep with its meditative tranquility that helps you find stillness in mind and body.
    With its bright citrusy aroma, XJ-13 has a way of throwing color back into the world and sharpening the senses. If you’re looking to invite curiosity, creativity, or a social spark back into your mind, you might consider this sweet, uplifting strain.
    Jack Herer is a strain cherished for its uplifting qualities that inspire happiness and creativity. With an aroma of sharp pine and freshly cut wood, Jack can provide a sense of comfort and motivation on low days.
    Primary terpenes: Limonene, caryophyllene, pinene
    Primary terpenes: Terpinolene, caryophyllene, pinene

    Cannatonic is another high-CBD strain that delivers you to bliss without the anxiety often associated with high-THC strains. If THC makes you feel sluggish or hazy, consider the clarity and unencumbered relief Cannatonic offers many consumers.

    Some cannabis strains have chemical profiles that are better suited for depression. This guide is meant to help match your symptoms with the right variety.

    Indica or sativa for depression

    Blue Dream is a 60% sativa-dominant marijuana hybrid. It has levels of THC that range from 17-24% and is known for its ability to relieve tension while still providing uplifting effects. Blue Dream also contains linalool and limonene, both which are terpenes that are known to help alleviate symptoms of depression. Blue Dream is also known to provide mental alertness.

    AK-47 is a 80% sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis strain that’s known for steady and long lasting effects. It has 14-20% THC and is known to help with depression, stress and anxiety. AK-47 can help stimulate mental alertness and keep people going throughout the day.
    Limonene, which is the second most common terpene found in cannabis, is known for its citrus scent and flavor. Limonene is known to relieve both depression and anxiety, though it can also help stimulate the immune system, alleviate gastrointestinal issues, and fight tumors and infections.

    A 2007 study from McGill University in Montreal, Canada found that tetrahydrocannbinol (THC) can serve as an anti-depressant. Dr. Gabriella Gobbi of McGill University was encouraged to conduct the study after she had seen anecdotal evidence that cannabis could help reduce depressive symptoms.
    Depression can mean different things to different people—it can be something folks struggle with for years, it can be felt strongest during the dark and cold winter months, it can be present only after a woman gives birth, it can be part of a person’s diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder or anxiety. The numbers around depression are staggering: it’s estimated that 16 million Americans and 350 million people around the world suffer from some form of depression.
    Terpenes are oils produced by some plants, including cannabis. Terpenes are used to flavor and scent products like aromatherapy oils and cleaning solutions. Terpenes in marijuana are responsible for giving different strains of cannabis their smell and flavor. There are about 120 terpenes that are found across all of the varieties of cannabis, though some are more present than others. Besides just smell and taste, terpenes work together with cannabinoids to boost their effects. Now, people are paying attention not only to the strain but also the terpene profile in their cannabis to figure out which marijuana helps ease depression symptoms.
    Linalool, which is a terpene known for its floral aroma, is known to be especially helpful with mental conditions. Linalool, which is also found in plants like mint and cinnamon, can help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.
    Jilly Bean is a 60% sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis strain that’s known to create an uplifting and positive mood. It is perfect for daytime use because of its energizing effects. Jilly Bean has about 18% THC and can also help with focus. It is also known for its floral aromas, which are associated with linalool. Jilly Bean helps to alleviate depression through a stimulating effect.

    The study, which gave rat models a synthetic form of THC, found that THC stimulated the production of serotonin. Serotonin helps reduce depression naturally, which means that medical marijuana could help reduce peoples’ need for anti-depressants. The study, however, did find that cannabis could have adverse effects and worsen depression symptoms at higher doses.

    Depression can mean different things to different people—it can be something folks struggle with for years, it can be felt strongest during the dark and cold winter months, it can be present only after a woman gives birth, it can be part of a person’s diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder or anxiety.

Chill out with this strain with friends on a rainy day and enjoy the relaxation and health benefits with a great safety profile. The high from a session will give you about two hours of euphoric relaxation.

White Rhino will slow down a hectic day, and numb the body to stress and pain. White Rhino is definitely a night-time treat, and a great way to relieve insomnia after a stressful day. The nausea relief is greater than that of more stimulating strains.

    White Rhino will grow from one to two meters in height, typically a comparatively short to medium plant.
    Flowering takes seven to nine weeks. Outdoor harvest will be bursting with yield in early October.

    agent orange weed

    Its genetic lineage consists of Space Queen, Orange Velvet, and Jack’s Cleaner… so you can expect a mostly Sativa head-high. The effects from the Agent Orange strain are very clear-headed and uplifting, with little to no body buzz holding me back. I found it incredibly easy to focus, making this an ideal strain to medicate with during the day.

    In fact, the intense citrus influence is the Agent Orange strain’s most noticeable trait by far. It carries a distinct aroma that is easily compared to the Jillybean and Tangie strains, and I would be very interested to see how closely related they are through terpene analysis.
    There was an intense orange scent that rushed out of the bag as soon as we popped it open. The medicating session was near perfection, as the taste matched the scent and the smoke was incredibly smooth with undertones of orange.

    Bred by TGA Genetics, the Agent Orange strain is often described as a Sativa-dominant hybrid with uplifting effects. However, it is best known for the distinct citrus aroma.
    The one thing that sticks out with the Agent Orange strain is that its aroma is extremely unique and overwhelmingly similar to citrus. Crush the bud up in a grinder and take a big inhale. If it doesn’t smell like an orange peel, it probably is not as good as it should be. Agent Orange buds are typically bright green in shade with even brighter neon orange hairs… similar to the very popular Green Crack strain.
    The genetics of the Agent Orange strain alone were enough to tell me that I was in for a flavorful treat. The Orange Velvet strain is a clone-only variety that was gifted to Mz. Jill a few years back, and it has gained notoriety as one of the sweetest strains in existence. Combine that with the slight tropical fruit taste one would expect from Jack The Ripper strain and you’ve got a delicious cocktail of flavors.

    “It’s rare you can do a blind taste test and instantly know what strain you are medicating with… but its easy with this strain.”

    Subcool and the TGA crew make a habit of breeding hybrids with a distinct terpene profile, and this was certainly the case with the Agent Orange strain. It is a citrus-kissed hybrid that was the result of crossing two long-time favorites from the crew at TGA Genetics: Orange Velvet and Jack The Ripper.

    Agent Orange is one of those strains that all connoisseurs want to try to get their hands on, as it would be hard to mimic the smoking experience that the Agent Orange strain provides MMJ patients. It’s rare you can do a blind taste test and instantly know what strain you are medicating with… but its easy with this strain.

    Buy strawberry seed

    It is fun to grow strawberries from seed! When you are ready to plant outside, be sure to reference the Growing Strawberries page.

    Interestingly enough, there are approximately 200 strawberry seeds adorning the outside of a strawberry. And, while often referred to as a “berry,” strawberries are not true berries like blueberries and blackberries are, and their seeds are not true “seeds.” The tasty strawberry flesh is considered accessory tissue, and those tiny flecks we all call “strawberry seeds” are actually fruits in and of themselves. The tiny fruits actually contain the seeds. These seed-containing fruits are called “achenes.” An achene is occasionally also referred to as an “akene,” “achenocarp,” or “achenium.”
    Put your ripe strawberries into a household blender. Add one cup of water to the strawberries in the blender and blend on high for 3 to 5 seconds. Try not to exceed 5 seconds of blending time, or the seeds may be damaged. Allow the components to sit for a minute or two. The viable seeds will sink and the unviable seeds will float along with the strawberry pulp. After the good seeds settle to the bottom, pour off the bad seeds and fruit pulp with the water. Rinse the seeds and then transfer them to a paper towel (or low-heat dehydrator) to dry. When dry, store them in a cool, dry place.

    This main Strawberry Seeds page serves as a hub for anyone looking to learn about or purchase strawberry seeds. This page will help you understand everything you need to about growing strawberry plants from seed. If you don’t know where to buy strawberry seeds, you can visit our list of suppliers and seed companies who offer them for sale. Following that, we cover how to plant strawberry seeds and grow strawberry plants from seeds. And, of course, you can also read up on the fascinating details and information regarding strawberry seeds and what makes them unique.
    Many strawberry seeds need to be cold treated to encourage germination. If your selected seeds require this, fear not. It is easy. Simply wrap your seeds, put them in an airtight container, and place them in a freezer. This simulates winter conditions, and the warming period lets the seed know it is time to come to life. After keeping the strawberry seeds below freezing for two to four weeks, remove the seeds from the freezer. Leave them in the jar or container as they gradually warm up to room temperature.
    When looking to buy strawberry seeds for sale online, be sure that you choose a reputable supplier. To shop and buy strawberry seeds, use the link below to access our directory of online suppliers. If you know of an additional online supplier of strawberry seeds, please contact us, and we will gladly try to include them in our directory: Directory of Strawberry Seeds for Sale

    Once your strawberry seeds are at room temperature and are ready plant, you need to create a hospitable place for your seeds to begin their journey to planthood. A seed tray works well. Obtain a seed tray and prepare it. A good mix for starting strawberry seeds is 3 parts peat to 1 part organic-rich soil. Spread this out in your seed tray to a depth of about one half of an inch.
