How to Germinate Cannabis Seeds
Top three most popular recommended ways to germinate cannabis seeds.

Here are three easy ways to germinate cannabis seeds:

So you gotten your seeds and gear together and you’re ready to start. They say the first steps are the most important, and here we are. Chapter one, so to speak. There are several ways to go about germination, described here are the three most popular techniques.

The Paper Towel Method: This is a simple and reliable method for germinating cannabis seeds. Moisten a paper towel (or cotton pad) and place the seeds on top. Cover the seeds with another damp paper towel (or cotton pad) and place them in a warm location. Cover with plastic to reduce evaporation, but allow air flow. Keep the paper towels moist but not waterlogged. Once the seeds have germinated, transfer them to your preferred growing medium.

The Soak Method: This method is not as popular as the paper towel method, but is still reliable for some. The seeds are placed in a glass with room temperature water and place the seeds in the water. Keep the water at a consistent level and wait for the seeds to germinate. If the seeds continue to float after 12 hours, they are likely no good. Seeds that have sunk should be watched carefully for the root tip to emerge, within 36 hours. Once that happens, the seeds have germinated, move them to your choice of growing medium. If no tip emerges, the seeds may be too old.

The Soil Method: This method involves planting the seeds directly in soil or another growing medium. Fill your containers with soil and moisten the soil with water. Place one seed in each container, about a quarter inch deep. Cover the seeds with soil and gently press down to secure them in place. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Most seeds will have germinated witin about 3 days, continue to care for them according to the specific needs of your cannabis strain.

Most germination failures stem from too much care, to much interaction with the seed and immature plant. Tend to it gently and let it sprout and start growing. A light breeze from a nearby fan will help stengthen young plants.

Step-ByStep: How to germinate marijuana seeds using soil.

You’ll need the following supplies:

Cannabis seeds: Make sure to purchase seeds from a reputable source.
Containers: You will need small containers or pots with drainage holes to plant your seeds in. (We prefer using small Solo/Dixie Cups)
OPTIONAL – Trays to catch runoff.
Soil: Cannabis plants thrive in well-draining soil that is rich in nutrients. Look for a soil mix that is specifically formulated for cannabis plants, and mix in about 30-40% Perlite. Super Soil is worth the time if you have the space to allow it to work. Coco Coir is also a good choice if you intend to use Hydroponics.
,
Water: It is important to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged.
Heat source (OPTIONAL): Some cannabis strains may require a heat source to germinate, such as a heating mat or warm room.

Fill your containers with soil and moisten the soil with water.

Cover the seeds with soil and gently press down to secure them in place.
Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. A spray bottle can be helpful for this.
Place the containers in a warm location, between 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit. Lower than 70 is better for preventing root rot in Hydro.
Keep the seeds in the dark to encourage germination. A cardboard box or closet can be used to provide darkness.
Check the seeds daily and continue to keep the soil moist. The seeds should germinate within 5-10 days.
Once the seeds have germinated and the seedlings have emerged, move them to a well-lit location and continue to care for them according to the specific needs of your cannabis strain.
It is important to follow the specific instructions for your cannabis strain when germinating and caring for your plants. Some strains may have different temperature, lighting, and watering requirements.
After your Seedlings have matured (gotten 4-6′ high), they are ready to transplanting into Fiber Bags (we use 1-3 gallon size).
