Cotyledon refers to the embryonic leaf within the seed of a cannabis plant. It is the first leaf structure to emerge during germination and plays a crucial role in providing initial nutrients to the developing plant. Cotyledons are typically broad and contain stored food reserves that fuel early growth until the plant can begin photosynthesis. These leaves are temporary and will eventually be replaced by the plant's true leaves. Cotyledons serve as an important indicator of plant health and vigor during the early stages of cultivation. Understanding the development and function of cotyledons is essential for successful cannabis cultivation.
