Germination is just waking up the seeds. Keep them warm and in the dark and moist will help the seeds to become sprouts. Moist is the most important factor. If a seed's root breaks through the shell and there is no water (or moist) around it will die. Cover your Nirvana seeds with a maximum of ¼ inch of soil. Keep the soil damp. Now wait for the seedlings to pop up. In this first stage your baby-plant is still very fragile. The roots need to stay moist at all times. However beware not to overwater. This is one of the most common mistakes made by the beginning grower.

Another important factor is to keep them warm. The young cannabis plants like humid and warm air. All plants do in the spring.

For the best germination use our Propagator Pro with built-in LED lights to create optimum conditions. We advise you to use a Germination Kit to protects your seeds from harmful influences and it stimulates the germination process.


2Vegetative Stage

You're plant is now ready to get growing. To stimulate this, it is adivised to accommodate your seedlings with at least 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness every day (when indoors).

If your climate is suitable, you can choose to replant your Nirvana seedlings outdoors. Otherwise buy yourself some good grow lights and replant your seedlings indoors. Use our Root Xtender for a vigorous and strong root growth, and Marijuana grow bags for a better protection of the roots.

Many of our customers use Soiltabs to give their Nirvana seeds optimum slow releasing nutrients for the duration of the vegetative stage.

3Flowering Stage

When growing outdoors, Nirvana plants will start flowering as days get shorter and autumn sets in. Cannabis plants are just like any other plant in nature. When your Nirvana plants are about half the size desired switch your light cycle (if indoors) over to the flowering cycle of 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness. This is to force them to start flowering.

Autoflower strains will start flowering automatically. This will cut a lot of time from the vegetative stage. Instead of just growing leaves, your plant is also flowering now. For best nutrient solution during the flowering stage, buy yourself some Flowertabs. This is specifically formulated to supply slow releasing nutrients for the duration of the flowering stage.

4Hang to dry

After harvesting, let the Nirvana buds hang to dry for a minimum of 10 days. Put them in a dark and enclosed, but ventilated space until the branches crack when you bend them. How long this takes depends on your climate and atmospheric humidity.

Next cut the buds, trim the leaves and store the buds in mason jars. Open the jars 2 to 3 times a day for about 15 minutes. This is to prevent mold growth. Best to stick labels on the jars to remind you of what’s inside.
