To germinate seeds of cannabis with Jiffys is one of the most effective methods, and with more rate of success of all. The Jiffys or pressed peat are some germinators that are introduced in a hermetic receptacle and they are humidified until they reach their complete size, next a small hole is made in the center and the root of the seed is introduced that previously we will have left in soak during 24 hours in a glass of mineral water, that contains a PH of 6,5 to a temperature of approximately 20 degrees. This step is not essential, but it helps the seed to open more easily afterwards.
Germinating marijuana seeds with coconut fiber, is very effective thanks to the oxygenation capacity of the coconut, which helps a lot to the development of the roots, getting to obtain a 90% germination level. We are going to go step by step:

When your marijuana plant has already germinated, you must pass it already to plantation. Be patient, because during the first week you will see practically no progress, but from then on, the events shoot at a crazy speed.
Using hydrogen peroxide in the process of germination of your cannabis seeds, brings benefits widely demonstrated and I’m going to detail. In the first place, in the case of opting for a germination of your seeds with water in jar, to contribute a drop of oxygenated water to him, avoids that the water rots, and it is necessary to change it every 24 hours. It also eliminates fungi and bacteria thanks to its anti-fungal properties, if you choose to pour water from the tap.
After soaking you can place the seed between a thin wet cloth or paper towel on a plate with a clear cover or plastic wrap. When the root emerges, plant it by first poking a hole in the planting mix that is long enough for the entire root area to be covered. Then gently place the seed and pat it so the root makes contact with the medium. The other method is to plant the soaked seed into the medium before it germinates. Place it ¼ inch deep in sterile commercial planting mix. Moisten the mix with water adjusted to a pH of around 6. Keep it in a bright space with high moisture. If the space is dry, place a tall cover over the container to reduce evaporation. Keep at room temperature. If the air is cool, use an electrical tray warmer and cover.
A seed is the distillation of a plant’s essence. It contains the blueprint for life, which it holds in storage until it senses environmental conditions favoring survival of a new plant.

The main problem that people encounter when germinating is stretching seedlings. This is an indication of insufficient light intensity. To encourage strong, stout stems that don’t stretch, seedlings must be provided with intense light from the start: A minimum of 40-60 watts per square foot (400-600 watts per square meter). With a bit of care quality seeds will be sprouting in just a few days.

Germination begins when the root emerges from the seed. These germinated seeds are ready to plant.
