Germinating weed seeds in winter

Any strain that contains ruderalis genes is also more likely to make it through a winter. Ruderalis is tougher and hardier than more common strains. It also isn’t photoperiod dependent, meaning it will flower when it’s ready rather than as a response to a change in light hours. It can bloom within 30 days of planting.

Other things to consider when growing in winter

Helpful info! Thank you! The summer here gets 10c at night so I see why there’s a long stretch between nodes. Great find I know what I need to do .

Very interesting article. I have grown cannabis outdoors during the winter while temps were down to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. they were not looking good as they turned purple and didn’t grow much. But when spring/summer hit and temps were up to 100 degrees they took off turning dark green and growing crazy. So I think you can at least keep them alive during the winter as long as temps don’t get to the freezing level.

Thanks for your kind words! I do wish we could simply give grow advice in the comments section, but unfortunately that’s not a service we can offer right now. Also the forum is no longer active, although it is still there to be used as an archive, so I’ve had to modify my replies. Now I say that other readers will often offer advice if they can, so the comments section can serve the same basic purpose as the forum. I hope you continue to enjoy the blog,

The belief that auto flower seeds are perfect for withstanding extreme temperatures and weather conditions is not entirely wrong, but the farmer’s final goals must also be considered. Are you only interested in a strong cannabis plants or are you looking for a good harvest? If the latter option is the right one, maybe you should not grow outdoors.

As the cold season approaches, cannabis growers tend to wonder what the winter marijuana seeds are, so they have a fair chance of harvesting them during the winter as well.

Alternatively, if they are in a region with an extremely favourable climate, they can grow in pots and then you only have to shelter them during the evening, at night, and when the weather conditions turn bad.

We’re going to go through the X-Seed method – if you want to skip this, you can simply skip the steps involving X-Seed and place your seeds straight into your paper towel as stated in step 4. Before you start, make sure you have everything you need at hand, so that you don’t have to waste any time looking for stuff.

Once you have all of your seeds nicely placed on your plate or in your container, cover the seeds with another layer of damp kitchen paper, similar to the first layer that you put on the bottom. At this point, your seeds should be completely covered.

This can be the hardest thing to work with, because temperatures that are either too cold or too hot will mess with your seeds and they won’t germinate. Springtime temperatures are generally what you should be aiming for – seeds can still germinate in colder temperatures, although they can take longer.

Step 1: Soak the seeds

Moisture is one of the three elements required to successfully germinate cannabis seeds; it essentially helps the seeds to expand and therefore break their shell. Over-watering at this stage can be fatal for your seeds, although harder-shelled and older seeds can take longer to soak through, so some patience is required.

We highly advise against using this method, as it’s incredibly easy to accidentally drown your seeds. This method involves soaking your seeds in a glass of lukewarm water – it can be any type of cup, although people usually use a normal glass. This method can be effective for much older seeds or for seeds that have abnormally thick shells.

Step 4: Cover the seeds

Start by filling a small pot with soil, no more than half a liter. Water it before even thinking about planting your seed. Once the soil is damp enough to weigh down the plant pot, use the tip of your finger to create a small 0.5-0.1cm hole in the middle of the soil, and deposit the seed in the hole with the root facing downwards. Then, cover the seed with a little soil so that it’s just under the surface. The last step in this process is to put your plant pot in the sun or under your lamps (wherever you’re planning on growing it). Within a couple of days you should see that first sprout, that will keep on growing right until the end. In some cases, it may even take a matter of hours.

Submerge your seeds in your B.A.C. X-Seed liquid for an hour. Give it a stir every now and then so that the seeds are thoroughly soaked.
