root hormones are for roots as far as i know.

germinate the regular way.

haven’t heard of any benefits regarding dipping seeds in root hormone. experiment with a bagseed, just for one plant and let us know if it shows any benefits between the plants you germinated the regular way and the one dipped in hormone

Okay, this can work but you must first place the seed flat on tiop of ur soil. Don’t wedge it down in. cuz root hormone will make the seed go DOWN!

seriously though, I know what ur saying but no the seed has its own mechanism for germination. Weed like any other plant comes with its very own mess kit when first born. You could probably leave it be for a week before putting hormones on it. It’s a self running program. Thank goodness for that.

But hey go ahead and do it anyways. no harm no foul.

Of course yes u can. There is no time limit on using root powders. That being said the stuff is usually more costly than nutes, so at some point ur better off just zipping them with nutes, unless u want to spend more money on the grow. that’s ur choice of course.

yes, indeed they are meant for cuttings (cloning is the new modern fandangled word), and to assist the plant with a transition boost and band aid for the wound at the same time.

However, as I posted earlier, once the plant is established, you are basically wasting money by continuing to use the powder. Your regular nute feedings will MORE than suffice. weed is fairly easy to grow. Who am I kidding. I have grown literally millions of other plants, and weed is near the top of being easy to grow. Don’t complicate it needlessly.

The best way to grow ANY plant is to do the correct setup first. Match your soil to your specific plants needs. Match your container to your plants size. Match the fertilizer to the stage of growth. Add water and sun. Develop the patience to just watch it without fretting over it.

Like steering a large ship, plants take their time to do it right. For the most part they do not need your presence to be there at all. just set it up correctly the first time and step back. I keep one eye on my plants, not two.
