Germination – the development of a plant from seed after a period of dormancy
What do you need to Prepare?
Detailed Step-By-Step Cannabis Seed Germination Instructions
Step 1 : Prepare Your Workplace
You must ensure that everything is cleaned in your workspace to avoid cross-contamination and make sure you have all the necessary materials that you need.
Step 2 : Germinate the Seeds
*This is the most important step as you need the water to penetrate the seeds to enable them to start germinating.
3. Check on your seeds after a few hours. Using your fingertips, tap the floating seeds. You may see them sink to the bottom.
WARNING: Do not allow the seeds to sit for more than 18 hours. This will oversoak them and potentially cause rotting!
Wait until you see the roots grow to a length of 3 cm or 1 inch long before you transfer them.
Step 3 : Paper Towel Method
Once the roots are 1-inch-long, then it’s time for you to transfer them to the paper towel set up.
Prepare : Take 2 or more paper towels and create a thick folded layer on the plate. Moisten it with bottled spring water. Wet them just enough to be damp and all excess water should be drained from the setup.
WARNING: Do not let the paper towels dry out or the seeds won’t germinate. It is very important to check the germination set up regularly for dampness.
If you must handle the seeds, do not use your hands as they are very fragile and sensitive during this stage. Use tweezers in handling them instead. Avoid transferring or transporting the germination set up as it can harm the seeds.
Most seeds take 24 to 48 hours for them to germinate while others may take up to 7 days. This depends on the strain and your germination condition. For as long as you follow the germination method we have outlined in this guide, then you are assured of at least an 80% germination success rate (or 8 out of 10).
The paper towel has been designed to closely replicate the natural germination process of nature. While there are a lot of germination methods that you can use, this method is by far the best which we have used in years of growing and breeding.

If you do not follow our guide then we do not guarantee germination.
LAST RESORT IF YOUR SEEDS DON’T GERMINATE:
If your seeds fail to germinate, it is most likely that they didn’t get enough water. As a last resort, drop them again in the cup of bottled spring water and let them sit until you see tap roots appearing. When you notice the tap roots appearing, then transfer them to the paper towel set up.
