It seems common place in the grow community for people to make a big project out of the simplest task. Dropping a seed in moist soil has always worked for me, it’s worked in nature since they were being fed dinosaur shit. Personally i feel the more i have to screw with something the better the chance of fuckin something up.

Do not soak for more than 48 hours, I find this is the cut of point for problems, I soak for 24 to 48 hours and the tap root is barely protrouding from the shell. At this point you have to plant really.

To all those that think soaking seeds is complicated. its not and has been the quickest way to germinate without chemicals for years now.

Germinate Seeds in cup of water.

I was going to just put my seeds in a cup of room temp water to germinate. But ive read that this is not a good idea, because if the seed is in the water for over 24hours it gets no oxygen. Causing the seed to not crack open. Has any one had success with this method? It seems like an easier way then the paper towel method

THis is the only method I use. I let them soak until I see a long taproot. I used to just wait until I saw a taproot crack, in say 18hours, but the last few seeds I just let go a coupke of days and let these mega taproots grow. I then popped them into rapid rooters and a day later I have advanced seedlings rooted and fine. I am pleased. The paper towel method is bad, it means that little root hairs will get stuck to the paper towel and get stressed or damaged and also their is so much that can go wrong there and the worry over heat and cold is there where as with the cup of water nothing ever goes wrong. Hot or cold it always works.

tea tree, what percentage rate of germination do you get doing that? Have you had any seeds drown doing it this way?

lol, ah a class. I get 100 percent germination this way. I had lost some seeds before using the paper towel or just popping them into media. No paper towel is needed with the cup of water. Just dark. I, in fact use plain tapwater straight from the faucet. Not cold not hot. Then place them in the dark. Traditional knowledge says that when they sink they are ready to go into soil, rapid rooter, rockwool, etc, etc. However, I dont mess with that and simply wait until I thinj the taproot is out far enough for how I feel that day, lol. That simple.

Rapid rooters are a gift from god. Or whoever it is that makes them. Very nice. Google `em. Very cheap and very handy. A coco peat or something material that is meant for hydro or soil. I have used them succesfully 100 percent of the time for both. No lie. They are also the perfect cloning medium.

When a seed has the taproot I use tweezers and place it into a rapid rooter cube or cone. Then I take a little peice of anything handy and gently cover the whole in the rapid rooter cube. The seed needs darl to keep sprouting and take root. After a day or two tops the seed will be poking out. Then just let it go.

Here it gets tricky about half the time. Because the seed does not half to push thru dirt the shell is usually stuck so a little very very very areful nuding is sometimes needed or the plant will die in the shell. It is Very obvious when this happens and what needs to be done and is actually pretty fun to do. SO dont stress. Also I like to put a clear plastic cup over the rapid roooter or the patch of dirt I bury the germed seed to keep the humidity up.

Keep the rapid rooter soaked. Keep the dirt wet too. Whatever you use. Rapid rooters are impossible to overwater. If you sprout in dirt be careful and just wet the the toplaer so as the seed stays moist.

Cup of Water and Paper Towel Marijuana Seeds Germination Method

MJ Seeds Canada can guarantee you a 80% germination rate if you follow the “ Cup of Water and Paper Towel Seeds Germination Method “.

Many of our customers have 100% success rate with the method. However, the result may vary just like any other natural products out there.

Before you get started, you need the following:

– a glass of distilled water
– 1 plate
– paper towel
– tweezers
– pill bottle

– Always use distilled water. Do not use tap water because it has many impurities that won’t do well with your seeds.

– Make sure that you germinate the seeds inside a closed room with a temperature of 18 to 25 degrees Celsius.

Germination Procedure

– Drop your seeds into a glass or cup of distilled water. Sink them to the bottom by using your finger tips. Soak them for 15 to 18 hours. Do not over soak because too much water can kill them.

– It’s normal that some seeds don’t soak right after you drop them in the water. Leave them floating a few hours to allow water to penetrate the shell . After a few hours, come back to it and use your finger tips to carefully push them down.

– Check them every now and then to make sure that they are soaked in the bottom.

NOTE: This process will let the water or moist penetrate the shell which will trigger it to crack and germinate. The process is complete when you see the shell cracks and a tiny root appears.

– Fold a thick paper towel which is free from perfumes and dyes and position it on top of the plate.

– Pour the seeds and the water content in the cup of water into the paper towel. Make sure that the seeds have enough space in between. Fold the paper towel to cover the seeds.

– Leave it in a warm, dark room area and let it set until they open. Check it every 5 to 12 hours to make sure that they are kept moistened. Use a water spray to keep them wet.

– Do not give up as seeds may take up to 7 days to germinate. Each strains differ.

– Do not use any type of plastic bag or any other method not included in this guide as it will void the 95% germination guarantee on our seeds.

– Once you see new taproot which is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch then the germination is complete. Now is the time for you to transfer your newly germinated sprouts into dirt or rock wool cubes with the taproot facing down.

Reminder: Most cannabis seeds germinate within 1 to 2 days while others may take up to 7 days. This happens depending on how thick their shells are. Each strain differs in their characteristics including the thickness of their shells. Please be patient.

Here are some of the reasons why they fail to germinate:

1. They won’t germinate if you let the seeds to sit on the cup of water for too long.

2. You let the paper towel to become too dry or too wet.

3. They are exposed to extreme temperature.

4. You used tap water instead of distilled water.

Last Resort

If your seeds fail to germinate, then you can try this as a last resort. Drop them back to the cup of water and wait until you see them crack and show the taproots. Sometimes, the shell are too thick for moist to penetrate. Once you see the taproots, transfer them into the paper towel.

We always test our seeds for germination because we want to make sure that all our customers will only receive cannabis seeds with high germination rate. If you follow the germination method above, then we can guarantee you with at least 80% success rate.

We won’t honor the germination guarantee if:

1. You planted them direct to soil.

2. You did not follow our germination method and used other methods like soil, rockwool and kits.

Your success is of great importance to us that’s why we would like to hear from you if you have germination guarantee issues. You may contact us via phone, chat and email any time
