Cannabis seedling, is a type of plant that is a member of the genus cannabis and family Cannabaceae. The plant can be grown in both outdoor and indoor environments where temperatures are favorable. Water provision to the cannabis plant is very crucial in nutrients transportation, photosynthesis, and transpiration.

Cannabis seedlings, are neither drought resistance plants nor hydrophytes, but they grow in the medium watery environment. Therefore, understanding various strategies of watering cannabis seedlingsisessential for the better thriving of the plant.

Cannabis seedlings, transferred to the farm that has soil with low water retentionrequire watering twice a day since the soil is not able to retain the water that can sustain the plant for a long duration. Water retention is the ability of the soil to hold a given amount of water at a given duration.

Cannabis seedling is the type of plant, that is known to have a root system, stem, and leaves, which do not have any characteristics of water storage. Therefore, the seedling needs to be well irrigated depending on the size of seedling and climatic conditions of the region for them to grow well.

Weather factors such as humidity, wind,

The intensity of watering cannabis seedling, differs from various places and conditions under which the plant is growing. Cannabis seedling planted in textured, well-drained soil that has moderate water retention needs watering at least once per day to enable seedling to grow healthy and active.

Also,cannabis seedlings planted in the large pot,farmer has a significant role in testing whether the soil is moist to add the water to the pot. Besides, placing the plate below the pot and filling it with water when watering the plantis vital since the plant will absorb the water through capillarity, which reduces the frequency of watering the seed.

Cannabis seedlings, planted indoor where there is the modification of temperatures watering is moderately done when soil is dry. Therefore, it requires the farmer to be cautious and keep on monitoring the seedlings to avoid underwatering or overwatering.

Weather factors such as humidity, wind, rainfall, and temperature playa very significant role in determining how to frequently water cannabis seedlings. Humidity refers to the moisture the air can hold at a given temperature. Cannabis seedlings do well in the region under relative humidity, where the watering can be done twice in a day for the young seedling.

Watering Cannabis Seedlings

In a windy environment, seedlings lose much water through evaporation as compared to the calm area. Watering young cannabis seedlings at least twice a day is essential, to make them survive well without wilting and becoming retarded.

The intensity of the sunshine makes the cannabis seedling to lose much water through evaporation. Young seedlings under the direct sunshine require regular watering since it has not developed its roots. Also, when the intensity of the sun is low, an average seedling does not require much watering mostly when in the pot; hence it can be watered once per day.

In the regions which are stormy and sunny, cannabis seedlings grown outside require much water as compared to their counterparts in the temperate regions. Therefore, these seedlings need water frequently as their rate of evaporating water is relatively high.

Where temperatures are very high, and the cannabis seedlings are grown outside the plant needs to be watered more frequently at least twice in a day for the case of the young seedlings. Also, young cannabis seedlings that are from seedbed to the pot requires to be watered thrice in a day. Also, a moderate amount of water is required when watering the plants to make the roots develop and adapt to the new environment.

Cannabis seedlings that are grown in the greenhouses and indoor places where there is the modification of factors like wind, rainfall, humidity, and temperature need a minimal amount of water. In greenhouses, the farmer can change the condition to favorcannabis seedlings; hence less watering is required.

There are various regions where one does not need to water the cannabis seedling. For instance, in the tropical regions where there is plenty of conventional rain every afternoon, these seedlings grow freely on their own. Since the areas have the necessary conditions that cannabis seedlings require to grow.
