How to germinate Cannabis seeds?
There are different ways of germinating cannabis seeds. The method described
below has proven to be the most effective and successful way. Please follow
the instructions carefully.
2 x Dinner plates
4 x Paper towel sheets
1 x Bottle of mineral water
1 x Package of GermXpress© germination booster
1 x Pair of tweezers
STEP 1. Make sure you have a clean working
environment! Rinse the plates with plain water to
wash off cleaning solution residue. Do NOT
touch the seeds with your bare hands! Your hands
may be contaminated with hazardous bacteria,
chemical residue or nicotine! Use a pincer to handle
the seeds. We also advise to use bottled mineral water
instead of tap-water during the following steps because
the water quality may differ from country to country.
Some countries have poor quality tap-water that may
harm the seeds!
STEP 2. Use one plate to soak all paper towels
with mineral water. Drain the excess water by tilting the
plate. Then place 2 sheets of wet paper towels on the
other dinner plate and carefully place the seeds on the
plate using the pincer. Spread the seeds so they have
as much space as possible. Now cover the seeds with
the remaining 2 sheets of wet paper towels.
STEP 3. Cover the plate with the other plate by placing
it upside down on the bottom plate like a sea-shell.
Make sure that both plates cover each other precisely
ensuring that the seeds lay in a dark and moist
environment. Gently put the plates in a dark and warm
place with a constant temperature of 21ºC.
STEP 4. Check every 24 hours if the paper towels are
still moist. If necessary use a plant spray with some
bottled mineral water to moist the paper towels. Do
not overdo it! Be very gentle with lifting the paper
towels to check the seeds. Always make sure that
you properly cover the seeds and the plate again.
STEP 5. After a few days one or more seeds should
open and put out a little root. Normally a cannabis
seed will open within 3 days but it sometimes
happens that it will take even up to 2 weeks for a
seed to germinate so be patient! When a root of a
couple of millimeters has emerged the seeds should
be CAREFULLY transferred to a growing medium.
STEP 6. We advise you to use a mini greenhouse
using either soil or Rockwool to pre-grow your
cannabis plants. First make sure that the growing
medium is moist. Do not overdo it as you don't want to
drown your seedlings!
STEP 7. Next make a little hole in the growing
medium that the seed will fit in. The upper side of the
seed should be between 2-5mm below the surface.
Now carefully place the seed with the ROOT DOWN
using a pincer and gently cover the hole with a little bit
of growing medium, just to block the light. Do not
force it otherwise you will either damage or block your
seedling from emerging!
STEP 8. Normally your seedling should emerge
within 1-3 days. And again be patient as it sometimes
can take up to 2 weeks before the seedling will
emerge. Place your mini greenhouse on a spot in
bright daylight. Keep it there for a about 2 weeks
before planting them. Be careful as the plants are still
