The safest way to germinate your precious Marijuana Seeds
This will make sure they’ll all sprout.
Little babies are fragile, aren’t they?
Yes. And that’s why we treat them very carefully.
We keep them warm, we put them in a safe cot.
And we certainly don’t want ANYBODY to touch them.
The same is true for plant babies.
A just sprouted cannabis seed is super vulnerable.
A touch of our oily, germ infested fingers can kill it.
You wouldn’t touch a human fetus, would you? (I hope not)
Therefore, I recommend you sprout your seeds in so called ‘Peat Pellets’.
The peat pellets come dried and compressed out of the box.
The look like this:
The first thing we do now is, we soak them in water.
After 10 minutes, they will have become a bit like Kim Jong-Un: Fat and chubby.
Now they they are fat little peat pellets, it’s time to plant a seed.
Put one seed per peat pellet.
Use a pencil and poke a shallow hole. Around 0.5 inch (1.5 cm) deep.
Put the seed in there and cover it up.
By the way, there are people suggesting the seeds needs to be placed in a certain position. I found that not to be true when using peat pellets.
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.
