seed to weed time lapse

Get started growing today!

Watch as these young plants are trained to fill up a ScrOG net. ScrOG stands for “Screen Of Green” and refers to using a “screen” (usually made of string) to force plants to grow into a flat canopy.

This one is a little bit hard to watch as this Purple Haze seedling is hit by a strong insecticide (Doktor Doom) around 0:31 to combat spider mites.

Today I would like to feature the following incredible marijuana growing time-lapse photography and videos, many of which were produced by fuzzygrow. View all of her time-lapse videos here: http://vimeo.com/user15676933/videos

Why do marijuana plants seem to “breathe” in time-lapse photography? Why do the leaves begin to droop down and then suddenly spring back up?

This time-lapse video spans 2 weeks, a frame was taken every 6 minutes. 30 fps.

This time-lapse video spans 7 days

The growth of the plant will begin to slow down here as well, eventually stopping altogether as the plant’s energy will be focused entirely on the buds.

After those initial leaves develop the plants begin to enter a stage of explosive growth. This is the vegetative stage. A healthy vegetative stage is the period of growth most associated with great yields, as the size of the plant can make a huge difference at the end of it all.

The growth of a cannabis plant can be divided into 5 main chapters: germination, seedling, vegetative, flowering, and finally, budding. Within these stages of growth, many changes occur to the plant that should be noted and carefully watched for by the grower. Here, we’re going to dive into these different stages, to give you an idea of how long things generally take and what to keep an eye out for during cannabis growth.

Flowering is triggered by the light cycle shifting to 12 hours on and off, so the timing of it will vary from growing to grow but this generally begins around week 13 of a grow.

This is also the stage with the greatest variability for the length of time it will take to get through, dependent on strains and growing conditions.

The first leaves should be developing at this point, which the plant uses to photosynthesize light into nutrients.

Time-lapse videos are a great way to show you how the plants grow. Serious growers may also be interested in checking out the full Dutch Passion archive of grow reviews. You can find them here…

Auto Blackberry Kush may be one of the most visually stunning autoflower seeds you have ever grown. She could also be the quickest!, sometimes ready to harvest in as little as 9 weeks after planting the seeds. Pay attention to humidity towards the end of bloom, these heavy dense blooms benefit from lower humidity levels and good air circulation.

Forest Dream is an outdoor variety developed in The Netherlands for growers with climates similar to the Northern European average. She is often ready to harvest in early October and uses robust, proven sativa genetics.

Auto Mazar is a classic indica autoflower strain with cannabis cup winning Afghani Kush genetics. She delivers a powerful effect, a strong high with a powerful body stone which medical users adore. The taste is rich, deep and hash scented. Yields can be exceptionally high.

Auto StarRyder is another fast autoflower strain. She can be ready to harvest around 9 weeks after autoflower seed germination. She delivers heavy, rapid harvests of THC rich cannabis indoors but is also very highly rated by outdoor growers. This is a tough, robust but fine quality autoflower.

Another member of the elite Extremely High THC seed collection, Auto Lemon Kix is one of the most potent autoflower strains currently available. The mind-numbingly powerful THC levels suit the more experienced cannabis user aiming for maximum potency.

It isn’t recommended to top/FIM this auto since you will lose out on the colossal main bloom. When harvesting, we recommend waiting for a few more amber trichomes than usual. This allows the buds to really deliver their very best high!
