I germinated frisian duck seeds straight on top of a soil plug with halfvthe seed showing. I put three into a plastic box and then into a drawer in my garage. It took 6 days until they had sprouted to about 30mm high and shed the seed cap.
Can the visual appearance of a cannabis seed indicate anything useful about the future plant which it will produce? It’s a question which has been asked by many cannabis growers. And over the years there have been many different theories about this.
I revently bought a 5 pack of feminized Skunk #11 and the seeds are tiny and white and look very immature. Im trying to germinate one right now but Im not confident it will sprout, should I worry?
Through the years I myself have grown just about every any seeds I have run across and In my experiences a. Male is a male and a female is a female.until you are ready to start budding you just won't know.also have planted some texmex dirt seeds and produced some of the best Bud I've ever smoked
I tried pots and many mediums but the best and quickest way I find is in a glass of tepid water, this will also show if your seed is fertile and will sprout. first get a small dark glass I use a brown pill bottle or tub. First fill 3/4 of your water vessel with tepid water. Get a seed or seeds and pop in. Now don’t panic if they float. After 2 hour if seed is floating just lightly push seed under water a few times if needed. If still floating leave for another 2 hours or overnight. You can put lid on pill jar or clingfilm to ensure you vessel is air tight. Place in a dark warm place for 24hours. Your seed should be sprouted. Thank out seed sandwich between Wet paper towel on a plate and leave back to same warm spot and ensure to keep moist..Your sprouts should be good to go in a total of 3-4 days. Best of luck Aido
2" container filled with potting soil,1"deep where seed won't corkscrew out,water,3 days sprouted. No muss no fuss.
Hi Alf ! After 35 years of starting my seeds using fine, sieved soil in small plastic pots, last year I tried small Rockwool cubes (40 x 40 x 40 millimetres) for germinating my babies. This was extremely easy and I achieved 100% germination. It will now be the method I use for the rest of my days, so pleased was I with the results and how simple it is ! I plant my seeds pointy end down, one seed per cube. There is no need to pre-treat the seeds in any way or do any other various types of physical manipulation; the plants have been doing it themselves, unaided, for Millennia ! Start by soaking the cubes in a bucket of room temperature, aged / chlorine free, clean water for a few minutes, then remove the cubes and give them a couple of quick flicks in a downward direction to remove the excess water. I then make a small hole in the cube, about the same width of the seed and roughly twice as deep as its' size, with a small pointed stick. After inserting the seed (a small bamboo skewer can be very helpful), I use a small "fluffy" piece of Rockwool, about 2-3 times the size of the hole and about 2-3 millimetres (1/8 of an inch) thick, taken from either the edge of the cube or another cube especially sacrificed for this purpose and cover the seed in its' hole lightly, with this small tuft / fluffy piece, so it forms sort of a "hat" and very gently give the "hat" a pat so that it is in contact with the rest of the cube. There is no need to push the "hat" down hard. After this I use a water spray bottle (atomiser), with the nozzle adjusted to a misting setting, to lightly moisten the "hat". Again, using clean, room temperature and chlorine free water. After all this, I place the cubes onto a saucer that has some very fine aquarium gravel or a similar substrate, covering the bottom (of the saucer). This is to provide air circulation and drainage, in case you are too generous with watering. You need to keep the cubes moist, but NOT wet. If you can feel moisture when lightly touching the cube with the back of a finger, this is moist enough. Resist the urge to water every day (unless necessary) and under no circumstances, do not use any fertilisers. The embryonic seed has / contains all the nutrition and energy it needs for the first 2-3 days of growth (think bean sprouts!). The best way to maintain the correct moisture level is to use the water sprayer bottle and mist the cubes gently. You will, after some experience, be able to judge the moisture content by the weight of the cube when / if you pick them up. Do not let the cubes dry out, but this is highly unlikely if you check the cubes at least once a day. Keep the moist cubes in a warm shady area and away from any direct winds / breezes that may dry the cubes out prematurely. Only once the seeds have sprouted should they be placed in / under any light, but the sooner they are, the better. There is no need to cover the saucer with the cubes on it with anything, such as cling film or a plastic bag and do not place them in a mini greenhouse or any other type of enclosed container, as this can cause the seeds to rot due to the extremely high humidity. I have found that the cubes will remain moist long enough for the seeds to germinate with little to no extra watering, with the sprouts taking between 1 and 6 days to emerge; so do not give up too soon! Plant the whole cube into your growing system once the seed has sprouted and the plants' root(s) are coming through the bottom of the cube. By starting the seeds in the cubes you avoid handling the fragile baby plants and prevent any possible risks of damaging the emerging embryonic leaves and roots. I hope this helps and most of all, happy growing!!
Sadly, some providers today don’t prioritize customer care, especially after the sale has been made, and this leads to frustration on the part of the buyer. Research companies carefully before making a purchase to ensure customer care remains available before, during, and after the sale.

However, a grower could wish to purchase feminized marijuana seeds to boost their production of flowers within a specific time period. Flowers appear on the majority of seeds that germinate. These flowers may then be processed for use in extracts and other products or consumed using the preferred method, whether it be smoking, vaping, edibles, or other means.

GG#4 is a pretty balanced strain in terms of sativa vs indica, also providing a heavy yield. Growers love that it flowers in seven to nine weeks, and users appreciate the feeling of happiness and euphoria it produces. In fact, this strain was a 2014 Cannabis Cup Winner.
Order feminized seeds and allow the plants to thrive. When an all-female crop is grown, the plants devote their energy to producing highly potent, dense buds that are overflowing with cannabinoids. Additionally, feminized wholesale seeds save you money. You aren’t purchasing seeds and investing time and money in plants that must be weeded out before they can harm the crop. As you are already spending money on items you need to grow a cannabis crop when first starting out, like lights and nutrients, any savings you achieve are appreciated.
Growers often choose to buy feminized seeds online as this allows for the best selection. Purchasing seeds over the internet offers a convenient means of obtaining the products you desire, and there is no need to leave the home. After reading our customer reviews and speaking to our friendly and knowledgeable staff, you will be counted among the loyal weed-seed.com shoppers that keep coming back to us year after year.
The ability of the plant to react to environmental stressors in this manner makes it ideal for creating feminized varieties. As we will explore further on, this is the exact method that is used to make the seeds. Feminized seed cultivators chemically “trick” the plant into becoming stressed, causing the female flowering plant to focus on making seeds in a hurry. Because they come from a female plant (XX), there is no way for any male genetic information (Y chromosome) to be passed on.
If you grow some seeds and like the results, try growing another strain from that same breeder and see how it goes.
It also reduces the risk of having a stray male sneak into your crop—just one male can pollinate a huge crop, causing your females to focus their energies on producing seeds instead of buds.
How to look for quality genetics when buying marijuana seeds
Some strains are easier to grow than others because they are more resistant to mold and pests, so if you’re new to growing, you may want to try an easier strain to start.
Autoflower plants change from the vegetative to flowering state with age, not the changing of their light cycle. They have a short grow-to-harvest time and can be ready to harvest in as little as 2 ½ to 3 months from when you put the seeds in the ground. The downside is that, typically, they are less potent, but autoflower seeds are great for people who want to grow cannabis but don’t want to spend a lot of time doing it.
If you buy a packet of regular seeds, they’ll come with a mix of males and females. A lot of cultivators prefer to grow these because they haven’t been backcrossed—essentially inbred—as much as feminized or autoflower seeds. You’ll need to sex out the seeds once their reproductive organs show during the flowering phase and discard the males—because they don’t produce buds and will pollenate females, resulting in seeded flowers.
