Need to end your grow in Grobo and not sure how? We're here to help.

Two Reasons for ending your grow

  1. The grow is not viable (e.g. the seed didn't germinate)
  2. The grow was successful and is ready to be harvested


Let's talk a bit more about Germination: 


When growing with seeds, there is an overall 75% germination rate. Meaning that 2 out of 10 seeds planted may not sprout. The first two weeks are important for the health of your seedling. Once the seed casing has absorbed enough water, the shell will split and the seedling will emerge. 


Eventually, you will be able to see your root emerge from the bottom of the coco or peat pod. If two weeks have passed and there is no visible growth, above or below the coco pod, it is time to consider restarting with a new seed.
