Germinating your seed(s) is the first step to your grow adventure. This is the process by which you’ll sprout your seeds.
- Cannabis Seed(s)
- Sealable Plastic Bag
- Full Size Paper Towel
- Clean Water
The first thing you’ll want to do is place your seeds into a small container, such as a shot glass. Fill it about half full of plain water, and place your seeds inside to soak for 12-24 hours to hydrate the seed. The seed(s) should mostly float on the surface of the water.
After soaking the seeds, they should be just about ready to pop. In fact, some may have even popped already!
Now we’ll still want to keep the seeds in a high moisture environment for a bit longer but not submerged in water. To do this, we’ll be moistening our paper towel, placing our seeds inside, and placing it in our sealable plastic bag.
- Fold your paper towel in half and pour enough water over it to soak the whole towel.
- Lift the towel and gently squeeze off the excess water, still leaving it moist, just not dripping.
- With your towel still folded in half, place your seeds on one side of your moistened towel and fold the other side over top of the seeds.
- Place the towel inside your sealable bag, seal the bag, and place it in a warm dark place for roughly 3-5 days.
Once your seeds have popped, you’re ready to plant them!
