propagating weed seeds

Immature seeds tend to be light in color and have a soft outer shell.

Another drawback to clones is they can take on negative traits from the mother plant as well. If the mother has a disease, attracts pests, or grows weak branches, its clones will probably have the same issues.

Make sure the area the seeds are in is warm, somewhere between 70-85°F.

However, potency in autoflowering varieties has increased significantly since their initial introduction, with some breeders crossbreeding the low-THC ruderalis with other more potent varieties.

Are you ready to grow?

If growing male and female cannabis seeds, they’ll start to show their sex organs, or “pre-flowers,” after 8-10 weeks from germination.

A lot of classic weed strains that have been around for a while come in feminized form. Some popular fem seeds are:

Once you see the taproot, it’s time to transfer your germinated seed into its growing medium, such as soil.

Growing marijuana takes a certain level of commitment: time, energy, and financial resources, so be sure you can commit to the whole process.

Aside from producing cannabis through seeds, or sexual reproduction, you can also reproduce the plant through cloning, or asexual reproduction. A clone is a cutting that is genetically identical to the plant it was taken from—that plant is known as the “mother.”

It’s a steady 85 degrees F in there, no idea about the humidity in the bottles.

I do not believe the health of the plant is directly tied to the apparent “health” of the seed. If the seed germinates, it’s a good seed!

Seeds germinate best in warmer temperatures and young marijuana seedlings do better with higher relative humidity in the air. When seedlings are young, they grow faster and healthier when they can absorb moisture from the air through their leaves while their roots are still developing. Dry air won’t kill your seedlings, but it doesn’t make things better. Again, think springtime conditions!

Germination Method 5: Paper Towel Method

When germinating cannabis seeds, think springtime conditions. In the wild, your cannabis seeds would germinate in the spring so they can be ready to take full advantage of long summer days!

Poke holes in the bottom of your cup so water can drain out easily!

Another method to germinate marijuana seeds is to soak them overnight in slightly warm water, usually done in a glass drinking cup.
