Germinating your first cannabis seeds step by step
That said, let’s give you some step by step practical advice. Cannabis seeds can be germinated (sprouted) in many different ways. We have developed this super easy Beginners Guide to Growing Cannabis to use as a base, a tool to help you thorough the process.
The steps are proven to work, you only need to follow them and leave any experimentation out for now. Nature has been doing this for millions of years and trust me, it know what it’s doing. This doesn’t have to difficult, time consuming or boring!
If you wanna get creative, take out your shot glasses, find a warm place and top the shot glass with a coffee cup. When it comes the time to plant, go to the bottom of the image and compete the three simple steps!
Option One: The Paper Towel Method
Place seeds on moistened paper towel. Fold over and place on a plate. In 1-4 days the sprouted period can be complete for young seeds. For other seeds (e.g. older ones) it may take a week or more. Cover your work of art with another plate to keep the moisture in
Option Two: The Shot Glass Method
Get a shot glass, fill in with any type of water and put the seeds in. Choose a warm place for this newly created item
Place a coffee cup upside down over the shot glass for 24h.
Planting Your First Cannabis Seeds
Make a one inch deep hole in a moist medium, put the sprouted seeds inside. Cover loosely and pat down lightly.
The seedling will appear with two small leafs (which dont have the typical cannabis leaf structure).
Keep the lights on for a minimum of 18 hours each day. When two adult leaves appear (which do have the typical cannabis leaf appearance), the vegetative state has started.
