Hemp seedlings are germinated hemp seeds in the earliest stages of growth, they essentially amount to infant hemp plants newly sprouting from the seed.
If you farm for CBD or CBG production then planting hemp seedlings brings a better success rate than planting a hemp seed directly into the ground.
However, if you farm for hemp fiber, seedlings prove unnecessary.
Seedlings get cheaper with quantity – the more you buy; the more you save!
For those growing at scale, seedlings can cost you as little as $1 . We sell verified seed and our minimum order is 25 seeds @ $250
Clones vary in cost but tend to be less than seeds.
Hemp clones have certain attributes which make them best suited to experienced, professional growers:
In contrast to clones, plants grown from Hemp Seed naturally produce a tap root (main root). Tap roots act as an anchor for the plant which aids in support, water and nutrient uptake.
Outdoor growers lean toward growing from hemp seed; in the experience of most, clones bring too great a number of challenges to justify the effort, expense, and hassle.
MGB is our most popular strain because MGB is a phenomenal strain: it yields highly resinous buds.
This sativa-dominant strain originally went by the name “Medical Grade Bud,” but this quickly got shortened to MGB! MGB is a cross of Haze, Northern Lights, and Leda Uno which now goes bred for high CBG content.
Growing hemp from seed has three initial stages:
Seed-sprouts emerge anywhere between 5-10 days, although some seeds can require as long as two weeks to surface.
The germination stage – as you wait for your seedlings to sprout – can be an exciting yet daunting time. Keep patient! Check on the seeds frequently; never let them dry out.
For best results, you’ll need:
Spray luke-warm, distilled water on them as often as necessary to keep them moist, but avoid flooding the seedlings.
After a few days, be on the lookout for a tiny white root breaking through the seed shell. Wait until the root is about an inch long, before giving the seedlings their first taste of soil.
Your little plants can pop out of the soil within a few days.
At this point, the seeds will want light, and lots of it. Even if they still situate beneath the soil, go ahead and turn your grow light on.
If you do not employ a grow light, a number of different alternatives do exist. For seedlings, fluorescent lights or LED light bars work well.
Everyone has their reasons for a particular planting density and spacing. One might want to mow between the planted rows, so the rows need to be wider than the available equipment. There are many options available (see Table 1).
You can calculate the number of seedlings needed per acre by multiplying the spacing between seedlings, (for example: 10 X 10 = 100ft); dividing 43,560 sq. ft. per acre by the sq. ft. spacing provides the number of seedlings needed per acre.
Our example: 43,560 / 100 = 436 seedlings per acre.
Thus, you can substitute any spacing and determine the number of seedlings needed per acre.
