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.

A good supply of water is crucial

Planting should take place early in the season, around April or May, after the last frost.

Obviously the exact timing will depend on where you live – this is based on the Northern hemisphere i.e. in time for spring and summer. For the southern hemisphere such as Australia where spring commences on the 1st Of September you would look for any warm spell after that date. Marijuana plants will not tolerate frost so it’s better to be safe than sorry.

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!

If you are looking to purchase marijuana seeds then why not try the well respected Marijuana Seeds, Discreet Seeds or Herbies. They both deliver fresh seeds discreetly word-wide.

    I was just messing around seeing if i can get one to germinate. I had one seed inside a wet tissue and it started sprouting within 2 days, it broke free of its shell unfortunately ( I think?… maybe it’s supposed to do that) but is sprouting, I keep wetting the tissue to make sure it stays moist. Thinking about putting it in some soil in a shot glass (have a few close by) or something to see if it will sprout above the soil. If it does ill transplant it out side and see how it goes. Trying to maintain a minimum level of effort and see where it goes naturally, watering it of course.

    i heard that if you fill up a bottle cap or somthing that holds water and place one or two seeds in it and leave it in a dark place they start to open up germinate quicker. tried and tested with hemp seeds and it works 🙂
