Direct Cannabis Seed Germination Technique

Sowing (direct seed) a seed into a soil growing medium is commonly used and in this method, we’re about to explain you will plant the seed about 0.25 – 0.50 inches into a soil container.

Make sure to have a container that is large enough for the seed to sprout and grow for its first several weeks, along with having a container that has good drainage. You will want to keep the soil moist, but not soggy.

It is good to have soil that has a pH of about 7.0 for growing and this will help the seed grow faster than soils that are more acidic or alkaline. A good rule of thumb: if the surface of the soil is dry and you place your finger about an inch into the soil that is dry also then it is time to add more water.

Always be very delicate with germinated cannabis seeds and small seedlings. A common problem that is encountered when growing with Rockwool; it is harder for seeds to sprout through the growing medium.

If you intend on using Rockwool then you will want to place the cannabis seed in it after it germinates. There are a few companies that make Rockwool that have a hole cut out of the top where a Rapidrooter® plug can insert into.

This works well for germinating seeds in one (1) medium and then transplanting the plug into another. To increase the humidity in the area around the soil you can use several different methods.

One way is to cut a plastic bottle in half then drill or cut a small hole in the side and place it over the soil to cover over where the cannabis seed is planted. This will help keep the soil moist and the air around it humid.

Other ways include purchasing a plastic dome to place over the soil or place a plastic baggie and even a piece of cellophane over the cannabis seeded soil. You will then place the cannabis seeded soil under a light source, which may be a T5, HID light, or the natural sun.

This will help to add dry heat to the soil while the cannabis seed is germinating, but another way to heat the soil is to place the seeded soil onto a heating pad or soil heating cables.

This will help assist the cannabis seed in germinating by keeping the soil nice and warm. The optimal growing medium conditions for cannabis seeds to germinate in the soil are between 78 – 80° F (25 – 27° C).

While the optimal air temperatures to germinate cannabis seeds is 72 – 74°F (22 – 23° C). Though cannabis stems will continue to stretch between internodes if the temperatures exceed 85° F (29° C) for long.

Can i put seeds straight into soil?

I was wounder if i could put my seeds straight into soil to germinate and keeping the soil moist and in a dark place?

In my opinion that is the bestway to do it, usually sprout in 3 – 5 days, I prefer straight in the soil compared to the paper towel method. More people prefer the paper towel method but I figure the less you handle the seeds the better your results will be. Plus I’m still under the impression that the less amount of stress you put the plants under the more females you will get.

alright sounds good but how long would it take until u noticed the seed sprouted and did uses use any light while uses done it or just kept it in the dark?

If you plant straight into soil the plant will adjust to any light you have, you don’t need to worry about burning it which is another good thing, you could start it under a cfl or 1000 watter and the plant will be adjusted, no worries there. After you plant I’d just start whatever light cycle you planned on using and the plant will adjust itself.

I use the paper towel method as I like to be able to check the seeds’ germination progress (i’m impatient) but you certainly can.

i use this much light to start the seeds on 18/6

Thats the natural way, yes. I would not put them in the dark however. Have the lights on, it will give the plant something to “reach” for AND it will tell the seed/seedling “time to grow dammit.”

yeh thanks fer the quick replies iam thinking on putting about 5 seeds in jiffy cups and placing them into one pot of soil under a 40w cfl or should i get more light and what light schedule should i use?

If that’s the case I’d get a white 5 gallon bucket and put the jiffy pots in the bottom and get a board to put across the top of the bucket with the cfl inside the bucket and mounted to the board. It will keep the plants warm and the white bucket will reflect the light. Use a 42 watt daylight CFL and you will have great success until the plants out grow the bucket. That’s the best route to go.
