Germinating Cannabis Seeds Steps

How to Germinate Cannabis Seeds?

1. Place your cannabis seeds in bottled spring water. Soak the seeds in room temperature water for 14-16 hours. Do not soak for longer, it can drown your seeds.

2. Fold up a paper towel, put it on a plate and pour the seeds and water on.

3. Place another folded paper towel over the seeds and pour off the extra water. (don't go too thick the seeds need air, heat and moisture)

4. Put the plate in a dark, warm open room until they crack. Usually take 24 to 48 hours. DO NOT LET THE PAPER TOWEL GET DRY!

5. Make sure your cannabis seeds that are cracked have a tap root 1/2 to 3/4 inches long before putting them in your medium.



** Seeds usually take 2 to 7 days to crack
** Don't cover the plate with anything
** Don't let the paper towels dry out at any point
** Breeders recommend NOT putting cannabis seeds planted directly in soil, rock wool, peat moss, etc. This may work but some breeders wouldn't honour them.

Can't get it to crack still?

Try re-soaking the seeds in your spring water and wait till you see them crack open a little and you can see the tap root. Then continue the steps over from there.
