Seed germination

An Easy Method With a High Chance of Success


Regular and Feminized Photoperiod Seeds

Photoperiod refers to seeds that need certain conditions to be met in order to transition from vegetative state to flowering stage (Typically, this means altering the photoperiod to a 12/12 cycle)

Autoflowering have a very clear, fixed life-cycle, which means that they will flower automatically at a pre-determined time


Regular Seeds

  • Regular Cannabis Seeds have a 50% chance of emerging as either males or female

  • Female Cannabis plants produce the flower we all know and love

  • Male Cannabis plants produce pollen necessary for breeding

feminized seeds

  • Feminized seeds were created to maximize the chances of germinating female plants

  • There is approximately a 99.9% chance of achieving a female plant

  • Despite rumors and “experts”, there is no way to tell the sex by looking at a seed


Germination (Photoperiod)

  1. Fill a cup about ¼ to ½ way with water

  2. Drop your seed(s) into the water

  3. Wait apx 12-15 hours, or until the seeds sink to the bottom (you may need to give them a poke to persuade them)

  4. A cool dark place is always best

  5. Remove the seeds from the water and place into a folded, wet paper towel (not dripping wet) in an airtight container

  6. Leave somewhere dark for apx 24 hours. I personally leave mine on my internet router which produces a little heat. I have a 99% success rate using this method

  7. Check after 24 hours and you should have the white tap-root forming. If not, leave a little bit longer and make sure the paper towel remains moist

Autoflower Seed Germination

There are two ways you can do this;

  1. Drop the seed in its final pot and let it do its thing. There is no need to transplant an Autoflower Cannabis plant

  2. You can leave in water for 12-15 hours like the Photoperiod seeds and then drop into its final pot

The choice is yours! Autoflower seeds will germinate on their own and do perfectly fine with no need of transplanting later and causing stress
