What are the steps needed for the asexual marijuana seeds canada propagation?
First, you have to setup the perlite and the jiffy pots. Then choose a healthy branch from the mother plant that has been in the light for 18 hours. Make sure that the branch has hardened enough to be cut. Then take the cuttings and put in the water or humid environment until there are enough branches to process. It is important to prepare the cutting before planting.
It is important to get more chance of growing roots from the branch and one way to do this is by scarring the stem and dip in a rooting gel or powder. Another way is to put some rooting hormone from the cutting which can be purchased in the market. After dipping the clone in the root hormone, it is now ready to be planted. Those that are dipped into the gel or powder is already sealed and therefore needed to be planted right away. Pre-soak the rockwool in water with a 5.5 pH level. It is now ready to set the cuttings into the propagator tray. It is important to make sure that the wet perlite is at least 1 cm deep.
