Germination Instructions

Germination Guide

The first step to a great grow is germinating your cannabis seeds properly. Research shows there are several methods to achieve marijuana seed germination. We suggest the following approach. Why? Because we’ve seen it produce the best germination results with the least work possible.

We stand by the quality of our seeds and offer replacements if seeds don't sprout 90% or better. Follow the instructions below for the best results!

Germination, when done the right way, is easy to achieve. It’s also the first step to getting great bud. That’s why you want to make sure you get it right! To help you get the best results possible for your marijuana germination we’ve broken our favorite method down into 6-easy to follow steps.


Step 1: Submerge Your Seeds In Water


Get a clear cup and fill it with clean filtered water. Once the water reaches room temperature drop the seeds in the water (seriously, this won’t hurt the seed), and you should see a tail pop-out within 24-48 hours.

Step 2: Plant Seeds In Soil


Carefully move your sprouted seeds (emphasis on careful here) to tiny pots filled with soil. Bury the seed (tail side down) in a ½ inch of soil. Very lightly cover the seed (do not press down).

Step 3: Add Light


Your plants will quickly break soil. When they do they’ll need light or they’ll quit growing. We suggest using 36 Watt CFL tubes and placing them two inches from the plants.

Step 4: Keep Soil Moist


Using lights will quickly dry your soil out. Your seeds will need water to keep growing. To ensure your seeds don’t die we suggest using a plant sprayer to moisten the soil twice a day (one time when you wake up and again before going to bed).

Step 5: Move The Plant To A Bigger Pot


After 2-3 weeks you’ll notice roots begin to poke out of your tiny pot. The time has come to move your plant so it has more space to grow! Carefully introduce your plant with its soil to a bigger pot so it has room to keep growing.


You don't need to transplant autoflowers. Just plant those in its final pot straight away.

Step 6: Your Seeds Are Ready


Not long after transplanting, your seeds will be ready to move again! Once your plant measures 8-12 inches from soil to tip you can move it to its final growing space! Once you hit this phase you can either move your plant outside or into your grow room under your HPS/LED lights.
