Germinating your seeds

How to germinate cannabis seeds

When germinating cannabis seeds there are a few factors that play an important role. Cannabis seeds need humidity and warmth to sprout. A temperature between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius is ideal. Also besides that, we recommended that you leave the seeds in peace.
We created this video to take you through the three stages of successfully germinating your seeds.

 

 A glass of water

Step 1

Place your seeds in a glass of sterilised water, the water temperature should be around 20 – 25 degrees Celsius. Gently push the seeds with your fingertip below the surface of the water and leave the seeds fo float. After 2 – 4 hours, your seeds should have sunk to the bottom of the glass, if not, Gently push the seeds again, they should fall to the bottom. Within 24 / 48 hours, your seeds will have small roots and be ready for the next stage.

Cotton pads – Paper towels

Step 2

Place the seed between 2 wet layers of your chosen material.  Using this method, the water will evaporate quickly so it is best to create an environment where condensation can take place. You can do so by placing 2 plates on top of each other with the top one upside down for example. Make sure to check the humidity twice-daily! The material should be humid, not wet!
When the root is longer than 2 – 3cm, its ready for planting.

In soil

Step 3

Choose the size of pot that you will need and fill with a quality soil of your choice. Place your finger into the soil making a small hole in the middle. Carefully transplant the seedling into the soil with the root facing downwards. The seed head should just be covered up by the soil. Wet the soil carefully. Make sure it is wet enough for the seedling to continue growing. Check regularly. The seedling will require 18 hours of light a day in the growing  (vegitation) stage.

Seed Storage

We recommend storing your seeds in an airtight plastic bag or container in the fridge. The seeds will stay fresh for years when stored this way.
