This is the safest approach on germinating Marijuana Seeds.

Get some Jiffy Peat Pellets from the handystore or gardencentre. They look like this:

These compressed peat pellets have to be soaked in water before use. They’ll expand to their real size within a few minutes.

Put them in water:

After a few minutes they’ll become fat.

Now put one seed into it. Put it aproximately 1 cm (0.4 inch) deep into the peat and cover it.

It does not matter in which position the seed lies. Just make a 1 cm (0.4 inch) deep hole and let the seed fall in. Than cover it with soil.

Once the seed is in the wet soil, it will begin its life. Keep the peat pellets warm. But not too warm! 20 deg celsius – 28 deg is good. That is 68 – 82 degree fahrenheit.

Baby plants that are kept in too warm surrounding will be sickly and slower in their growth.

Make sure that the Peat Pellets stays moist during the whole time. Do not let it become dry. Check daily.

Good seeds will usually have a rate of 95% successful germination.

After 3 – 8 days, the plants will stick their heads out. Like this:

Put the little babys right into the sun or under your grow light (not too close, you do not want them to suffer from heat).

They need direct light. Lots of direct light. As much as possible.

Right after the head poped out of the soil, it is also time to put them into pots with soil:

Use quality soil from the garden centre. The better the soil, the better the plant later.

When putting the plant into the new pot, you can put it in fairly deep. The stem may almost completely disappear in the soil. This way the plant is stabilized. The stem that is buried in soil will develope roots.

About germinating Marijuana seeds in a wet papertowel …

I have seen many people write about the “wet-papertowel-method”.

With that method, the cannabis seeds are put in a wet papertowel where they will germinate.

Than the seeds are put into peat pellets or other soil.

I personally think that this is not a good way to germinate Marijuana Seeds. Because the freshly germinated seeds have to be touched.

Touching that little baby is similar to touching a fetus in the womb. It is likely to do harm. Thats why papertowels are not ideal for germinating Marijuana Seeds.

    So far I like the peat pot method. My seeds are white widow fems from ILGM that were purchased last year at this time. I have a small homemade indoor grow space and I use a platinum 300 LED grow light. This is my second grow. I started by soaking 3 seeds in water for about 48 hours. Then they went into 3 jiffy peat pots. They all popped through about 3 days later. They are roughly 1″ tall. I have 3 seven gallon grow bags ready with Fox Farm Ocean Forest. They seem a bit small to put in soil now so I’m wondering about how big should they be. Thanks

    • Hi,

      even though they seem small, put them into the pots now.

      The roots are growing rapidly. They need to spread into soil.

      I assume you can already see the white roots at the side of the peat pellet?

      Now is the time.

      Cheers, Jack

    So the germinating seed only needs heat? I’ve seen alot of propagator kit s with light on them, I’ve got the heating mat and the peat pellets with the The plastic green house, I’m planning to use a 300 watt Led grow light once I get them started. The question is do they need light to germination or just warmth or both?? Thanks

    • They need a nit of warmth to germinate.

      As soon as they stuck they head out they need light immediately.
