How To Propagate Weed: A Comprehensive Guide For Beginners


Weed propagation is the process of growing new plants from existing ones. It is a useful skill to have, as it can save you money and provide you with an abundant supply of plants. In this blog post, we will discuss the different methods of weed propagation and how to do them in detail.

Methods for Propagating Weed

There are several methods for propagating weed, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Here are some of the most common:

  • Seeds: This method is the simplest way to propagate weed, as all you need is a packet of seeds and a suitable place to grow them in. Seeds can be purchased online or at most garden centers.
  • Division: This involves taking an established plant and splitting it into two or more separate parts. This should be done carefully as too much damage could kill off one or both parts.
  • Cuttings: With this method, cuttings are taken from a healthy parent plant and planted elsewhere so they can root into their own individual plants.
Step-by-Step Guide to Propagating Weed
  • (1) Selecting Mother Plants/Seeds: Select healthy mother plants (if propagating through division) or quality seeds for planting (if propagating through seed). Make sure that these sources have not been exposed to excessive herbicides or pesticides.
  • (2) Preparing Soil/Growing Mediums: Grow your cannabis either indoors in soil pots filled with potting mix specifically designed for cannabis cultivation; outdoors directly in soil enriched with organic matter; hydro systems such as deep water culture systems; aeroponics etc.(3) Planting Seedlings/Cutting Pieces : Plant your seedlings approximately 2–3 inches apart when using seeds ,or 8–12 inches apart when using divisions . When planting cuttings make sure there’s enough space between them so they won’t compete for nutrients and light .(4 ) Watering & Feeding : Keep your newly planted material watered regularly but don’t drown it . A good rule of thumb is about 1 inch per week depending on temperatures . Feed your crop lightly , preferably every other watering – if necessary at all – during vegetative growth stages until flowering begins (typically 4 weeks after germination ). From then on feed only once per week until harvest time arrives .. -8 weeks later typically).
