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!

    Reggie and meds is just poorly grown marijuana. “chronic” or “loud” or whatever you want to call it is well, high quality grown marijuana.

    take 2 coffee saucers and put enough water in one to just float the seeds, then put seeds in and cover with the other saucer. Place somewhere in your home like a closet where there will be no light for about 5-10 days. You should see the seed split and sprout a white tail lookin thing(sprout). Pland (seed and all) sprout DOWN in 1/2 to 3/4 inch mirical grow and it should green up out the dirt in at least a week.

    im something like a begginer grower i tried to grow out straight out of the ground about 3yrs ago wich made me 20 and very inexperienced
    my seeds sprouted bout six inch but i just couldnt keep my hands off of them i was too over pretective on them and killed them, but exactly three days ago i followed the growers instructions for indoors and i kid you not they sprouted exactly when they said so ill be doing more research on this site and follow the guide step by step so all im saying is search the site for the info that pertains to you and dont over do it and whatever you cant find then ask questions cuz some of you guys sound like you might not need to be growing
    its risky business and dont tell anyone your growing its not smart just a little fyi hope i have success from the site and hope you guys do too. DONT GET CAUGHT!!!!

    I had a few complications with my germination process.. My first is that my paper towel dried out after it was in the cup step thing. And i had another seed that was still floating in the cup and that accidently fell over and spilled everywhere. Everything seems to be going fine and the first one just sprouted and the second seed just sank.
