I then carefully placed the cannabis seeds inside the hole with a small pair of tweezers. This ensures no harm is done with my fingers. After placing in the dirt, I covered up the hole carefully. I did this for all six pellets.

Now the grow actually starts !

Day 3, I moved the cover off the jiffy pellet structure. I had my grow pots already in place and filled with them with soil. The jiffy pellets have a fabric string cover that holds all the dirt together. It says you can leave it on but I didn’t want to damage the roots and I wanted them to be able to grow freely. I carefully cut each mesh with a sharp knife.

Step 1: Decide how many plants you want to grow

This germination method is the best I have seen and the success rate backs that claim up. I have a 6/6 , 100% germination success rate. That’s pretty good for the first time.

If I had to rate this process compared to others it absolutely blows them out of the park. To germinate cannabis seeds for beginners this is the best method. There is no secondary care needed. Just place the seed inside and wait. I was so excited to write this blog as I knew I had to share this process with every other beginner grower trying to germinate seeds for the first time.

The other three sprouted one day after this.

After waiting a gruelling 56 hours (Just over two days) I was going to sleep and noticed the first seedlings erecting from the jiffy pellets. It worked! Over the next 24 hours, the others sprouted one by one. This happened until all six plants were standing strong. The jiffy pellets had a 100% success rate. This was amazing for my grow. After they sprout they are ready to be placed under your grow lights (or in the sun if your doing it that way)

It is very important to only put one marijuana seed per jiffy pellet.

The ideal temperature marijuana seed germination is 70°-78°, so try to keep the jiffy pellets in an environment that can accommodate that.

If you have a jiffy pellet kit with a dome, place that over the top. Marijuana seeds need a relatively humid environment to germinate, and the dome will help with that. Just make sure to take it off a few times per day so the seeds can get fresh air.

Once the seeds have broken through the soil, they will need to be placed on either a 24/0 or 16/8 light schedule to start the germination phase.

Anywhere from 2-8 days later, you will see your marijuana seeds begin to pop their heads out of the jiffy pellets. This will not happen to all your seeds at one time, so be patient and do not mess with the ones that need a little extra time.

Once the jiffy pellets have expanded, we can plant our marijuana seeds.

Instead, we need to slowly pour 1 cup of water over them. Then wait several minutes until they expand.
