Germinate Marijuana Seeds like this to make sure they’ll sprout
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.
