Gather Your Supplies You will need the following items:
- Cannabis seeds
- Paper towels
- A plate or a tray
- Water in a spray bottle
- A warm, dark place
Prepare the seeds and place a few paper towels on the plate or tray. Take your cannabis seeds and put them on the paper towels. Make sure to space them out so they have room to grow.
Add water using the spray bottle, gently mist the paper towels until they are damp, but not soaking wet. Cannabis seeds need moisture to germinate, so be careful not to drown them.
Create a warm and dark environment, cover the plate or tray with another layer of damp paper towels. This helps create a dark environment for the seeds. Find a warm spot in your house, like on top of the refrigerator or near a heating vent, and place the plate or tray there. Make sure it’s a safe place where nobody will disturb it.
Be patient and check daily, now it’s time to wait for the magic to happen! Check the seeds every day to make sure the paper towels are still damp. If they start to dry out, use the spray bottle to moisten them again. Remember, cannabis seeds need moisture to germinate.
Sprouting Time After a few days, you will start to see little white roots sprouting from the seeds. This means they are germinating! Leave them in the warm and dark place until the roots are about half an inch long.
Planting the seeds once the roots have grown, it’s time to transfer the seeds to soil. Gently pick up the seeds using tweezers or your fingers and place them in a small hole in the soil, about half an inch deep. Cover the hole with soil and give it a gentle pat to secure the seed.
Water the soil lightly to keep it moist, but again, be careful not to overwater. Place the pot in a sunny spot, like a windowsill, where it can get plenty of light. Make sure to rotate the pot every day so all sides of the plant get equal sunlight.
Watch your seedlings grow, as the days go by you will see your cannabis seedlings grow bigger and stronger. Water them regularly, making sure the soil is always slightly damp. Be patient and give them time to develop into healthy plants.
