How To Germinate Seeds Successfully With Proven Methods

Originally published at:

Germination jumpstarts the growth cycle of cannabis plants. It is when the seeds begin to sprout after a period of dormancy, or when the pre-existing life inside it awakens. For this process to occur, the ovules need adequate levels of water, heat, and air.

I’ve been using the wet paper towel method for years. Works great.

Sometimes not every seed will germinate


I put my seed in water for a full day then move it to a damp paper towel in a baggie then to the growimg medium of your choice


I honestly skip the soak in water glass, I actually go straight for the wet paper towel. Works great for me

I put straight into soil I find you don’t get so many troublesome seed shells I think it’s because as it’s pushing up thru the soil helps remove the shell

I do that same thing I use four paper towels and I fold them till I have a half a paper towel and I put it in a paper plate two one on one. And I keep it wet and I pour off the excse water. And I have the paper towel folded over so I don’t loose any seeds and I put them in the soil after they pop. Hope this helps you and I have done it this way for over 30 years. Stay safe and grow happy
