TRANSPLANTING

Plants must be transplanted within 48 hours of receiving.

To ensure the highest success rates and growth uniformity, the following environmental conditions and transplanting protocol must also be used:

TRANSPLANTING PROTOCOL

STEP ONE

When ready to transplant, remove the film layer on the sterile plant pack and carefully remove the rooting tray.

STEP TWO

Wearing gloves, gently remove the rooting cube from the tray.

STEP ONE

Place the rooting cube below the soil just enough so that no root hairs are exposed and the base of the stem is covered.

SUBSTRATES

Any Substrate

Tissue culture clones can be grown in any substrate or growing medium, including soil, soilless, Rockwool, deep-water culture etc, with varying degrees of acclimation time.
We recommend first transplanting them into 3-5 inch containers to get them established in your garden. Substrates with very high air-to-water ratios will have the fastest acclimation time but will need to remain moist.

CONTAINER SIZE

3-5 Inch Containers

We recommend transplanting your tissue culture clones into a 3-5 inch pot. If initial transplanting into a larger container size (1-3 gallons) is desired, fertigation should be limited to 3″ around the rooting cube and particular care should be taken to prevent saturation of growing substrate.

HUMIDITY

65%-80% Relative Humidity

Our tissue culture clones come semi-hardened off and have been living in the packs you receive them in at around 80% humidity. We recommend starting them between 65%- 80% relative humidity with the sweet spot at 70%. Over the next 5-7 days, you can slowly decrease the RH until a desired vegetative environment of 50-60% is reached.

OPTIMAL TEMPERATURE

70-80 °F

Typically if you can stay within the transplant guidelines you should expect a 16-22’ plant within a 4-week time frame. Veg time will vary depending on several factors and generally will decrease after the initial order due to the increased experience acclimating tissue cultured cannabis clones. We have customers that put our plants to the test in all sorts of environments.

LIGHT INTENSITY

300-500 PPFD

We recommend starting our plants between 300-500 PPFD for the first 7-10 days to minimize transplant shock. After the plants get established in your garden you can then increase the light intensity up to 900+ PPFD.
If you are growing outdoors then the use of shade cloth is recommended for the first 7-10 days, especially in the hotter months to minimize transplant shock.

FEED

1.4-1.8 EC

Our tissue culture plants are fed with our special rooting formula at around 1.4 EC. They will be ready to be transplanted with your normal transplant/early veg fertilizer mix. You should be able to start feeding between 1.4-1.8 EC upon receiving them.

VEG TIME

4 Weeks

Typically if you can stay within the transplant guidelines you should expect a 16-22’ plant within a 4-week time frame. Veg time will vary depending on several factors and generally will decrease after the initial order due to the increased experience acclimating tissue cultured cannabis clones. We have customers that put our plants to the test in all sorts of environments.
