Most cannabis plants begin flowering when the amount of light they receive on a daily basis reduces. Outdoors, this happens when the sun starts setting earlier in the day as the season turns from summer to autumn. Indoor growers can control when a plant flowers by reducing the daily amount of light plants receive from 18 hours to 12 hours.

Some seeds germinate very rapidly while others can take a while, but generally, seeds should germinate in 3-10 days. If it’s been two weeks and a seed hasn’t sprouted, it’s probably a dud and won’t sprout.

Cultivating males is important for breeders trying to cross new strains and genetics, but most people growing for buds will want to remove the males.

But if the seed you found looks decent, you might as well germinate it and see what sprouts.

Cannabis seeds have a unique shape. They are oval, have the shape of a drop and are small in size. On average, a cannabis seed is about 2 to 5 mm long and 2 to 3 mm thick. If you want to know what you can expect in advance, then we can advise you to take a look at the seeds of a tomato.

Note: the moisture from your fingers can damage the seed. Please use linen gloves to prevent this.

To test the viability of a seed you can place the seed in a glass with distilled water. Seeds that sink within 2 hours have sufficient mass. These seeds generally have a better chance of sprouting than seeds that still float.

Note: this test isn’t 100% accurate and only provides an indication of the viability. In addition, the water will activate the germination process. Therefore, only carry out this test if you want to germinate the seed immediately. After performing the float test, you can’t longer store the seed.
