soaking cannabis seeds in water

IM sorry if im stupid. IM high baby.

ya my 125 watt set up isn’t worth any thing. I’m going for a $200 400 watt HPS/MH system that comes with every thing. I don’t really mind spending 200 dollars on some thing like this. I’m still having trouble with the germination, Im currently using distilled/filtered (drinking water) for every thing because it seems as if the the tap water is just not doing it. I’ve got another 15-20 seeds germinating, and it looks like only one is sprouting thus far. Hopefully I can get 4 plants total with the 400 watt system get a few ounces out of it. I hope

Can’t really point you to any good writing about it though.


I’ve also heard of people gently pinching seeds, until a pop, that aren’t germinating.

What part of the plant is turning brown, and how big is it?

Hey Hey. why are you all depressed and stressed out for. they are just seeds. yah know XD.

So. Take the seeds you have now. Take those seeds and soak them in warm water overnight. After this take those seeds and put them in a folded up piece of wet napkin. Put this napkin + seeds + water in a plastic bag. I personally put my seeds and plastic bag combo under a hat. The BIG factors are : warmeth , water , and no LIGHT = easy germination .

You will know that germination has occurred because the seed will split, and a little root appears. Make sure you don’t touch the taproot when it sprouts or during the transplantation process.

The soaking process can breathe new life into old seeds.

1 – The Paper Towel Method

Be careful not to over-soak your seeds. Hard seeds should be soaked for a maximum of 32 hours, although 24 hours is usually enough. Soaking too long can damage them. Marijuana seeds begin to sprout when they receive the twin signals of water and heat.

This is as simple as option #3. It involves nothing more than placing the seeds in a glass of lukewarm water overnight. It is a good idea if you’re using old and hard seeds. The soaking process can breathe new life into them. When you place the seeds in water, they float for a few hours before sinking to the bottom.

Inevitably, some will fail, while others will flourish. You will have seeds that pop fast and proliferate. Don’t be disappointed if you have a few failures because that’s part and parcel of the growing process. Even when you get everything right, you will inevitably lose a few seeds, and it won’t be your fault!

And today’s post you’re going to learn the most effective way to germinate your weed seeds.

If we look at the science of seed germination…

The ‘Pre-Soak and Plant Method’

After 1-2 days all you do is spray the surface of your soil/rapid rooter…that’s all your plants need in this stage if you didn’t skip step 4 (so don’t water your seeds in the next few days, only spray them).

Yes, I just made this name up for a method I’ve been using for 5+ years…

With hydro it is essential that you prepare your rapid rooters / riot plugs by soaking them in water for 12 hours.
