The best known way of germinating cannabis seeds is to put them on or between wet paper towels or cotton wool. This method exists in different varieties, as it’s not so much about the paper itself, but more about the absorbency of the material. It’s very easy to make sure the ‘medium’ doesn’t get too soggy and doesn’t dry out easily. If it does dry, you can effortlessly add a few drops of water to immediately re-moisten it.
Cannabis seeds and sprouted seedlings require constant temperatures of around 20-25 degrees Celsius
How To Germinate Cannabis Seeds: Wet (Paper) Towel Germination
For this method, simply prepare your medium by moisturizing it, again, without soaking the soil completely. Then take your flower pots and use your finger to make a small hole about 10-15mm deep in the top layer to put the seed in. Cover the seed up loosely and top it off with a little water. Be careful not to give too much at once though! A stream of water can cause the seed to travel further down the pot where it’s too moist – and too deep to travel back up again.
Wet paper towels are probably the most common way of germinating cannabis seeds
After the root has sprouted and has gained a few millimetres in length, it’s time to transplant the seedling into its soil and put it under a light-source. As a rule, a small 1cm deep hole made with your fingertip should do. Gently pick up the seeds one by one, taking care not to touch the root. Use a clean pair of tweezers and don’t squeeze. Make sure that the roots don’t cling to the paper or cotton wool. Lovingly cover the seed with a little (loose) soil and add a few drops of water. Now, all you can do is wait whole the story continues below the surface. As soon as the seedling pops her head above the ground and green leaves emerge, she’ll needf light to continue growing.
That’s why you see Clonex less now, as well as the products manufactured by other brands formulated with auxins, besides the fact that they are synthetic auxins that are added to the gel for its elaboration. I mean, they’re not a natural product
Today we are going to expose you a little cannabic trick that consists of the elaboration of an excellent fertilizer stimulator of roots rich in Auxinas…you know, the vegetable hormones in charge of the rooting of cuttings and seedlings.
✅ What are Auxins??
To give you a general idea, the most commonly used auxins in agrotechnology are those directly related to indol-3-butyric acid (AIB), which is widely used for rooting herbaceous stems, and 1-naphthaleneacetic acid (ANA), which is also used for rooting woody stems. Our beloved product Clonex was characterized by its richness in AIB, because as you know, the cuttings you cut are characterized by their tender herbaceous stem.
-Weigh 100 grams of lentils or chickpeas and leave them covered with water in a large glass bowl for the time necessary for them to germinate. At that point we have an explosion of auxins in his cells.
But first of all, we will mention some of the biological functions of the Auxinas so that you can become familiar with their great importance in agriculture:
Feminized seeds are supposed to contain only female cannabis seeds. However, this is not always the case—a few male seeds might remain in the mix. The vigilant grower will remove the male cannabis seeds from their counterparts. Nevertheless, this is the best option if you just want your seeds to grow and do not like seed reproduction.
Other payment options are also widely used. These include cash, but we do not recommend this if you do not want to be traced by legal authorities. Credit cards and different types of debit cards such as Visa and Mastercard are also payment options.
