Could it be because they really are hemp seeds? Doesn't hemp grow all tall and string-beany like that?

I'm growing my very first canna plant right now!  I started off with a clone though and not from seed but it's been so fun educating myself on how to keep my new plant baby happy, lol.  I would like to recommend a book I received as a gift that holds an incredibly vast amount of information on cannabis and growing your own that I've fallen in love with.  It's titled, "Grow Your Own: Understanding, Cultivating, and Enjoying Cannabis" by Nichole Graf, Micah Sherman, David Stein, and Liz Grain.  It's been an amazing tool to have and learn from as I was prepping for my plant and understanding cannabis in depth=)

Your plants are looking great @Aphrena! I would suggest carefully taking the seedlings apart and uppotting them to their own individual 4" pots. When you uppot you can plant the seedlings deeper into the soil so that maybe 1/2 " sticks out above the soil line. This will help support main stem of the plant during this part of their growth. You can also prop them up using a popsicle stick or shiskabob when theyre taller.

When uppotting try to use some high quality soil. There are many options, but something with perlite for good drainage, mycorrhizae for the roots and worm castings. I suggest Pro mix HP or Fox Farm Light Warrior, but there are many to choose from :)

I would also make sure that they have a light above them, no more than a foot away; the plants will reach to the light and become elongated the further they are from the light source. If you don't want to use an artificial light, keeping them near a southern facing window. 

Hope this helps:)

I can't believe how fast they're growing. I have killed every plant I've ever had but these lil babies are growing like...well, weed(s) ? (sorry for the dad joke!) I watched a YouTube video today where a homegrower said he watered his with organic black tea, has anyone else heard of that?

Just water with clean water. Distilled is best!

Hi all,

I’m late to this thread, but wanted to offer the following resource for a simple how-to on growing: https://sunbudsolutions.com/growing-guide/.

SunBud Solutions is in the process of developing an all-inclusive grow pod (built-in light, fan, filter & timer) designed for a single plant. We’re also all about providing how-tos and tips to keep it simple so anyone can successfully grow. Although the link is specific to growing in a SunBud unit, the technique is the same regardless of your set up and walks you through five steps to growing your own!

      Have you tried CBD OIL as an alternative? CBD Oil is from the flower of Cannabis and now can Relief Pains but soon it will be a cure in people especially in curing Cancerous people. I may be looking forward to this and I am always! but for now, I guess we could start planting cannabis for the future and start searching seeds to plant.

      the cannabis industry needs more books by women of color! check out our submission guidelines if you've ever considered turning your hobby and knowledge into a text that could help others and broaden the spectrum of knowledge in the publishing of cannabis content. https://microcosmpublishing.com/faq#submit-manuscripts

      Hi all! My name is Andrea, I live in Barcelona and I am Argentine. im a cannabis photography work in barcelona. I like this job a lot, but since I started working I have to be more attentive and take care of myself because of the stigma still installed as a drug. At the same time I feel the need to do something consistent to the world and the plant, I would like to work / collaborate with any person from any geographical point to advance in this cause. to change the face of cannabis, in the United States they are more pioneers than in Europe, it is not a question of competence. Any contribution or comment, I am happy. thank you community!! my personal instagram for contact is: instagram.com/becannactivist

      My daughter and I recently attended our first Tokeativity event (in Turners Falls, MA) - thank you, Sam, for organizing! As we work to fully launch SunBud Solutions (a Vermont-based start-up in the process of developing a single-plant, self-contained grow pod), we are looking for feedback. In particular, we are developing a section of the SunBud website to collect recipes and tutorials for those using our product (and those growing on their own). Any thoughts, feedback, etc. on the first two blog posts in this area, and thoughts for future growth, are much appreciated!  Link to blog: https://sunbudsolutions.com/blog/

      Easy Cannabis Tea Hi there.  Short, to-the-point edibles recipes are popular on YouTube.  I did little to promote this one, other than send links out to a few forums.  Yet, it gained surprising traction.  Anyone who is interesting in doing other short edibles recipes, please let me know. Thanks!

      Hey everyone, I just wanted to share this. I've been working toward an established brand in the CBD industry but still have a lot of unanswered questions. There are tons of hurdles I run into and I have just scratched the surface. I came across this and signed up for a #CBD A-Z course and am super excited, this woman has her own CBD business and is teaching others how to build one from the ground up. She also provides marketing techniques as marketing on Facebook is a huge challenge, she is one of the 1st companies that is allowed to run ads on Facebook without being shut down Facebook has officially approved her business. Check out the course >>here<<   Also, I wanted to share with you her ebook that gives some tips and tricks on how to position your brand. Hope you like it.    Cheers!   Secrets_to_Marketing_In_Restricted_Industries_UNCENSORED_full.pdf
