Yellow seeds sprouted cannabis

First Little Leaves on Sprout are Yellow

Well i dug my seed up last night. Because i thought it might’ve gotten pushed down deeper into the soil, which i was right, it was about 3-5 inches down. I replanted it little leaves up, barely under the top of the soil. And this morning she decided to pop up . But her little new leaves are yellow. Like pure yellow, is this bad ?

I would say its prob shocked a bit. and a way of keeping hair our is enclosing the room if yours is enclosed than I would say go into the room with a set close that isnt around your dogs.

Thanks for the reply, Should i maybe do the same thing to my other seed if it doesn’t come up? It’s been 3 days since i planted it.

Nothing to really do about the seeding.. wait for it to perk up or die.

No animals in the growroom. Pet hair gets everywhere, and fuck smoking your dog.

I would say yes, bet depending on the strain i would do a little internet searching and try figuring out when it typically pops.

I dont know if your doing this for commercial but if anyone at a co-op saw even one. 9/10 gonna say no to it. If its personal than i would try to perfect not having it on my crop its nersty

Well it’s either purple haze or afghan kush x yumbolt, when i put the seeds in paper towels to germinate, i didn’t really pay attention to which was which lol. But if a seed is really deep down will it eventually fight it’s way to the top?

Well that seed i dug up last night was around 3-5 inches. And i honestly think this 1 is deeper, not sure tho. Just a guess.

Marijuana Seeds Positioning in Soil

Marijuana seeds should be placed with the POINTED END UP into a prepared cannabis seeds germination bed or just good soil at a depth of 1/2 to 3/4 inch. The embryo tap root emerges from the pointed (stylar) end and the natural method of growth is for this root to make a turn and grow downward (see the illustration) This bend formed by the downward curve of the taproot is what emerges from the soil and the friction of dragging the cannabis seeds upward helps the new plant to loosen and cast off the seed case when it breaks through the surface. If the cannabis seeds are placed with the pointed end down, the embryo will be required to expend a great deal of its stored energy for twisting and turning to position the tap root when it realizes that it is heading the wrong way (see illustration of germinating marijuana seeds) The seedling will need this energy to exert the forces required to later lift its head (now enclosed by the two halves of the seed case) above the soil, cast off the seed case and then spread its two embryo leaves and begin the life-giving photosynthetic process. This is a critical stage in growth and carelessness in placing the marijuana seeds will exhaust even the most hearty seedling and result in a slow start and a feeble plant in later life. Cannabis seeds should be placed in a small hole at a depth of 1/2 to 3/4 inch. An excellent medium for germination is a mixture of rich humus and fine sand, such as the type used for aquariums. The soil needs a ph of 7.5 to 8.0 and should not be so moist that it sticks to your fingers. If the medium is too moist, the seeds will rot and ferment before they can sprout. A simple test for moisture is to stick a pencil into the soil and if soil adheres to it when removed, then it is too moist. Sort of like when you test a cake by sticking a straw into it to see if it is baked through to the middle. The ideal is not too moist, and not too dry – and be sure that the soil is well-drained. Research has shown that a soil temperature that is at, or slightly above, the air temperature promotes the best survival rates and growth.

Thanks for the very informational post . So should i probably dig that other 1 up? and do what i did to this 1?

How to Help Yellow Cannabis Seedlings

Having a problem with your cannabis seedlings? Here’s a quock tutorial to help you identify the problem and get it solved right away so you can get back to growing marijuana!

What Causes Cannabis Seedlings to Turn Yellow (or Show Other Symptoms)?

  • Poor Watering Practices – When it comes to seedlings, the most common problem is overwatering. Leaves may turn yellow if roots stay wet for long periods of time (“wet feet”) and may also show a wide variety of other symptoms, spots and nutrient deficiencies. Less commonly similar symptoms can be caused by underwatering but it’s more rare because small plants don’t drink much. Learn how to water your cannabis plants.
  • Bad Soil – If soil is thick and muddy, your seedlings will grow poorly. Good cannabis soil drains well and is rich and light.
  • Not Enough Light – Seedlings get long and stretchy with big spaces between sets of leaves, often with yellowing. What type of grow lights are good for cannabis plants?
  • Too Much Light – Parts of the plant closest to the light is turning yellow or brown. Learn about light burn.
  • Too Hot or Dry – This can cause leaves to turn into tacos, crinkle up at the edges, and sometimes turn yellow if it gets too bad! Learn about heat stress and controlling temperatures!
  • Incorrect pH – If pH is too high or too low the plant may show nitrogen or other deficiencies. Learn about controlling pH to prevent nutrient deficiencies. As long as your plant is getting nutrients and doesn’t appear droopy, 9/10 times the nutrient deficiency is actually being caused by the incorrect ph!
  • Not Enough Nutrients (rare) – If growing in soil, it’s very unlikely your seedling will use up all the nutrients in the first few weeks. However, if growing in coco or hydro, it’s important to give seedlings suitable nutrients from the beginning or they will immediately start turning yellow from the bottom up.

Examples of Unhealthy Cannabis Seedlings

Overwatering – Common cause of droopiness and yellow leaves

Another example of a deficiency that’s actually caused by overwatering

Chronic overwatering in thick soil led to the following yellow leaf symptoms. The main thing that alerts you to the fact that the yellowing is caused by overwatering is the fact that the seedling is droopy. It’s very easy to overwater young plants when you have a small seedling in a big container. When that’s the case, don’t soak the whole growing medium. Water in just a circle around the plant until its leaves are up and growing fast. At that point you can start watering more thoroughly

The strange yellow and red growth in this picture has been caused by giving the plant too much water, too often. Overwatering can often causes what appears to be nutrient deficencies in young plnats! Older plants tend to just droop, but especially seedlings can have really odd reactions to root problems.

This soil is thick and thoroughly saturated with water. As a result the young seedling roots can’t get any oxygen and it’s stopped growing, with the first set of leaves starting to turn yellow. Overwatering will stunt young plants and keep them small!

This “soil” is more like mud. The plant roots are drowning from lack of oxygen, causing severe wilting.

Not Enough Light – Tall or “Stretchy” Seedlings

Seedlings stay yellow if they never get any light

Too Much Light – parts of plants closest to the light are turning yellow

Heat Stress – Causes leaves to fold into tacos and edges to turn up

These two seedsling are suffering partly from overwatering, and partly heat

After being subjected to overwatering plus a heat wave, the leaves of the following seedling started cuppping upwards and turned lime green. The stems and veins of the leaves were turning red. You can see the soil is still dark and wet because the plant stopped drinking after developing root problems.

Not Enough Nutrients

Not enough overall levels of nutrients usually only happens to cannabis seedlings in coco or hydro where the grower didn’t provide any extra nutrients. It’s rare for a young seedling in soil to be able to use up all the nutrients in soil in the first few weeks. In coco or hydro you should be providing nutrients (at seedling strength) from the very first watering because otherwise it only has the nutrients that were contained in the seed.
