The paper towel method also has its risk, as the fragile seedlings can be damaged during the potting process. The tiny roots can also get tangled in the paper towels, so make sure to move the seeds to potting soil before roots grow too long. Use your hands or tweezers to gently remove each seed from the paper towels and place them in a prepared growing medium.

Soil is an easy, more natural method with which to germinate your cannabis seeds. The soil protects the fragile roots from any interference, and soil is, after all, where a cannabis plant would grow in the wild.

First, make sure you use the correct type of soil, either gently fertilized potting soil or a seed starter with a pH level of approximately six (6). The soil contains the right acidity and enough nutrients to strengthen your young cannabis plants for the first two weeks. Be careful not to add more nutrients, or you risk overfeeding and killing your seeds.

The best germination method depends on the cultivator’s choice. Here are some of the most common ways to pop your cannabis seeds.

To employ water germination, fill a glass with tap water and let it sit until it reaches room temperature or around 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Add two to three plant seeds per cup and allow them to sit, watching for any changes. Change the water to fresh tap water every two days, making sure it stays at room temperature.

Use a spray bottle to moisten the paper towels and then store the cushioned seeds between two plates, under a face-down bowl, or gently place them in a plastic bag. Maintain a temperature of about 72 degrees Fahrenheit, keeping the paper towel wrapped seeds in the dark and away from a windowsill. In two to five days, the seeds will pop inside the paper towel sandwich and emit tiny roots, ready to plant when they reach about five millimeters in length.

Under here we show you a video tutorial how to do it .

First of all we want to say there are really a lot of ways to germinate seeds and each one definitely has his/her best way for a 100% succeed …

Germinating with Kitchen paper and tupper

Daily we reveive the questions like “what is the best way to germinate” or “how do I start germinating”, We know this is for lots of people not an easy thing said…. So we tought to make it as a subject in the next weeks

This is a pretty easy way to do it, you only need a vacuum closeable tupper or what you can find in the kitchen to keep things vacuum, then you take the kitchen paper and you fill the bottom of the tupper with a layer of the paper, then you spray the layer with water from around 23 degrees Celcius until it is wet but not soaken wet .Then you take the seeds and put them slowly and careful on the wet layer with each a good distance between the seeds so they can´t get strangled .then you put another layer of kitchen paper above the seeds so they all are covered and then you also spray this layer wet, but again not to wet (this all to avoid rotten or mold) .You close the tupper and you put it in a total dark place with a temperature around 21 to 24 degrees Celcius.In around 36 to 72 hours you will see the seeds are popped and they can go in to soil for further rooting and growth .

Thanks for watching and if you doubt about something or you have questions don´t hazer to contact us
