Hey buds and welcome to my video on cannabis seeds and germination! Germination is the first step to any cannabis grow, and there are tons of ways to get this done. In this video I will cover a how to germinate and plant your seeds in two different ways, direct to soil and paper towel method. I also cover seed storage as well as the basics of breeding. Some growers will claim to have methods with 100% germination rates, but this depends on the seeds, the methods I cover will give you the best chance of 100% germination rates.

0:36 – Direct to Soil – This section covers how to germinate and plant your cannabis seeds directly into the soil, no transplants or paper towels needed. This method is not known to have the best success rate, but is by far the easiest way to germinate your weed seeds. With this method you will need water, a seed, soil (seed starter etc) and mycorrhizae. This method is perfect for autoflowers and photoperiod plants.

2:34 – Paper Towel Method – This section covers how to germinate and plant your marijuana seeds via the paper towel method. This method is commonly known to have the highest success rate among all levels of growers. With this method you will need a cup, water, plate, paper towel, seed, soil (seed starter etc) and mycorrhizae. This method is suggested for photoperiod plants, autoflowers may experience a slight shock during initial transplant.

5:46 – How to Store your Seeds – This section will cover how to properly store your cannabis seeds. Simply use a box such as a cigar box (or similar design), put your seeds inside and store it in a dark place. I also discuss about storing your pot seeds in the fridge.

7:28 – Where Do Seeds Come From? – Also known as introduction to breeding. I briefly discuss the differences between regular, feminized, autoflower and photoperiod plant, and how a male and female plant are used to create regular seeds. Two females are used to create feminized seeds, although that’ll have to be another episode.


Boiling, Hydrogen Peroxide, Sandpaper: I researched these methods but founds them over the top and unnecessary. With that being said, the video should cover all the steps on how to germinate your seeds, and if you have any questions please drop them below in the comment section!

Mycorrhizae: Some growers start applying mycorrhizae after the plant has been transplant from a 3.5″ square pot or larger. Personally speaking I try to expose my cannabis seedlings to mycorrhizae as quickly as possible to inoculate the root zone.

I hope everyone enjoyed, keep growing and keep learning!
