Too hot
High temperatures result in excessive soil desiccation and injury to seeds and seedlings. We recommend a constant temp of 20-25 degrees.

Young seedlings love humidity, and a constant 60-70% is ideal at this stage. Use a cheap mister bottle, and spray regularly freshwater (ph- 6.5-7.5) over the leaves. This increases humidity, and washes dirt and dust off the leaf surface, unclogging stomata and enabling the plant to breathe properly. In natural conditions, the rain would do this for us.

The ‘Kiwiland Method’ for raising seed, has been developed from professional horticultural practices used the world over. We use it because it works, and it’s simple.

Lighting, temperature & humidity

1. Propagator with bottom heat or
2. Heat pad + seed-tray
3. Thermostat controller
4. Soil thermometer
5. Perlite

Soil too loose
Soil that’s too loose results in too much air surrounding the seed. Seeds planted in this manner will not absorb moisture properly, and it’s likely they’ll dry out. Cover freshly sown seeds with fine mix and pat down lightly with your fingers.

The list below is standard equipment recommended by Kiwiseeds and assumes you already have the necessary grow space and lighting set up. If you haven’t already got your equipment you can buy that online at https://www.kiwiland.com/

Now that the plants have strong light they require more water and nutrients as well. A light organic feed or nutrient solution starting with an E.C of no more than .8 (with the water already at .5) can be sprayed directly on the plant and watered into the soil. The seed-raising mix contains no nutrients so within a few days the plants will be hungry.

The other three sprouted one day after this.

Seedlings breaking through the dirt.

Once planted you need to leave them inside the container at room temperature for up to eight days. The germination process takes anywhere from 2 – 8 days to get the seedlings to sprout. After the first 24 hours, the pellets seemed very dry. I then proceeded to add a little water to each to keep them moist.

Step 3: Place cannabis seeds inside the jiffy pellet

Jiffy Pellets are the best invention I have come across. Here is a link to Amazon to check them out.

Furthermore, I cut around the mesh so it was just the jiffy pellet by itself. I dug a small hold in the middle of my Vivosun 3 gallon fabric woven pots These pots allow oxygen to flow through the walls and allow the plant to grow to the maximum potential. I then transported the pellets into the holes I dug in the middle of the pots.

There is one common method where you drop the seedling in water for 24 hours. Then transport the seed into a wet piece of paper towel, which is then placed in a ziplock. Then after a few days, you need to carefully transport them into the soil. This methods success rate is a lot lower due to all the different variables and careful handling required to do it.

So I planted 6 feminized auto-flowering seeds in 6 separate jiffy pellets.
