Marijuana Seeds –  Do’s and Don’ts

  • Don’t “check” to see if the seeds are doing anything!
    Touching the soil of germinating seeds will surely kill them at this stage!

  • Seeds can take 3-14 days to germinate. Sometimes longer! Don’t let the top layer of the soil dry during germination. Also seeds from the same Marijuana may germinate at different times! Wait at least 2-3 weeks. Many assume that no more seeds will germinate after a few days. Only to find them germinating in the garbage!

  • Spray pots and seedlings with water only if the top(s) start to dry. Don’t pour water because it will shift the soil and kill the seedling at a most tender stage.

  • Only place 1 seed per pot. Or else you might have to kill one at a later stage.

  • Germination will take much longer and the rate will decrease if the seeds are left to germinate at cool room temperatures (approximately 65-70 degrees).  This happens more noticeably with tropical strains of Marijuana.

  • Use distilled water.
    If you can’t obtain it let your tap water sit for 24 hours to evaporate chlorine.

  • Be patient, follow these tips, and you and your buds will soon start your fantastic journey!
