After the legalization of cannabis in the United States, you can grow your marijuana plant at your place too. So, once you decided to cultivate marijuana at your home, you need to know about the plant’s growing process. In this article, we have mentioned a few stages of cannabis healthy growth.

Know about the four stages of the plant’s growth.

The growth of the cannabis plant can be classified into four major stages, from sowing a seed to harvesting. They are as follows:

  1. Germination
  2. Seedling
  3. Vegetative
  4. Flowering

Before digging into each stage’s detail, note that storing the cannabis seeds is an essential step before you start to sow your seed. The marijuana seed needs to be a brown color and a few textures on it, similar to stripes. If the seeds are green in color, they are underdeveloped and cannot grow as a quality plant. To get your seeds ready for growing, you should wrap them into a pouch of plastic, making sure that you seal them tightly and place them in the refrigerator. Now, once your seeds turn brown, it is the time to cultivate your seed.

First Stage: Seed Germination (3-10 Days)

The first step of growth begins with the seed. After you refrigerate your seed in an air-tight container until it turns brownish, the final seed should be dry and hard. The sign of ingeminate seeds is an undeveloped seed that has a white and green squishy texture. So, you must wrap your seed and place it into the fridge until it becomes fully germinate.

After the seed has sprouted, you should place it into the growing medium. Typically, the medium is soil. Place the sprouted side into the soil and let the stem be upwards. Make sure the little leaves need sunshine to become stable & healthy.

Second Stage: Seedling (2-3 Weeks)

Once you sow your germinate seed, the plant will develop 3 to 7 leaves within two to three weeks. A healthy marijuana plant should have an attractive green color. From this stage, be careful of watering the plant. Though, you shouldn’t overwater it in the seeding stage because it has small and delicate roots.

Third Stage: Vegetative (3-16 Weeks)

It is the stage when the plant starts to grow completely. At this stage, you should place your plant into a larger pot to make the roots grow quickly. Increase the water level a bit and feed your plant with nitrogen.

Last stage: Flowering (8-11 Weeks)

Once your plant has flowers know that it’s the last stage of growth. Do not harvest the plant before six weeks and regularly check the color of pistils. Also, make sure your plant has trellised to support bud growth.
