You have done your research and spent your hard-earned money on Cannabis seeds; now what? Getting
your seeds to germinate successfully takes some practice but when you follow the proper steps you
should have success in tackling the first step of having a successful grow.
Germinating cannabis seeds involves a few key steps to ensure successful sprouting. Here’s a general
guide on how to germinate cannabis seeds:

  1. Gather your supplies: You’ll need cannabis seeds, water, paper towels, and two clean plates or
    plastic containers.
  2. Pre-soak the seeds (optional): Some growers prefer to pre-soak seeds in water for 12-24 hours
    before germination. This step can help speed up the process, but it’s not mandatory.
  3. Prepare the paper towels: Moisten a few paper towels with water, but ensure they are not
    dripping wet. Place one damp paper towel on a plate or plastic container.
  4. Place the seeds on the paper towel: Take your cannabis seeds and space them out on the damp
    paper towel. Leave enough room between them so they don’t touch.
  5. Cover with another damp paper towel: Gently place another damp paper towel on top of the
    seeds, covering them completely.
  6. Create a sealed environment: Carefully place the second plate or container upside down on top
    of the first plate, creating a sealed environment. This helps maintain moisture and warmth.
  7. Find a warm, dark location: Put the plates or containers in a warm and dark place, such as a
    cupboard or on top of a warm electronic device. The ideal temperature for germination is
    around 70-85°F (21-29°C).
  8. Check moisture levels: Check the paper towels every 12-24 hours to ensure they remain moist. If
    they dry out, add a small amount of water to keep them damp but not soaking wet.
  9. Wait for germination: Cannabis seeds typically germinate within 24-72 hours. Keep an eye on
    them, and once they’ve sprouted, you can move on to the next step of the growing process.
  10. Transplant the germinated seeds: Once the seeds have sprouted and the roots are about a
    quarter-inch long, carefully transfer them to a growing medium such as soil or a starter cube,
    ensuring the root is pointing downwards.
    Remember, different strains of cannabis may have slightly different germination requirements. It’s a
    good idea to research the specific needs of the strain you’re growing and adjust your germination
    process accordingly.
