How to Germinate Marijuana Seeds
So your plot is ready for planting. You now have two choices; you can either sow the seeds directly into the ground, or you can transplant pre-germinated plants that you have started off at home. Usually start these off in a dark place and then move the seedlings under lights or on a window ledge. Germinating them inside will give a much higher success rate. For more information on marijuana germination you should read the section on growing marijuana indoors.
For now let us assume that you will be planting seeds directly into the soil.
Plant the seeds around 1.25cm (1/2”) deep into your prepared soil. Plant them sideways, we find this works well quite consistently. Make sure that they are well watered and will not dry out if there are some sunny days, make sure you keep them moist at all times. After approximately 48 hours you should start to see the first signs of the seed cracking open and the first shoots coming out. That’s how to germinate a marijuana seed!
