However, slight patience is required when conducting the float test, as results are not immediately apparent. You’ll have to wait for approximately 1–2 hours before confirming the results. Some good-quality seeds will need adequate time to absorb enough water for them to sink. Use this time to go water the garden and get some much needed pruning done. Upon your return, any seeds that remain on the surface are most likely not viable and won’t be worth further time and effort.

With this said, you may get lucky if the strain they were growing really is prime. In this case, it’s worth carrying out the following test to see if it’s worth germinating.

A solid way to obtain great seeds is to find a reputable seed bank. These companies pride themselves of their breeding skills and make sure that their customers receive exactly what has been advertised. They have reputations to cater to, so delivering anything less would only harm their image.

Conducting The Float Test

Are your seeds light or dark in colour? Are they tough or do they turn to dust when you press them between your fingers? These are just some of the ways to tell if a seed is healthy and worth growing. Keep reading to learn more.

If you are still unsure about the quality of your seeds after analysing their appearance and toughness, it’s time to put your lab coat and goggles on. Well, not quite. This test is extremely easy and only has two possible outcomes. Fill up a drinking glass or glass jar with water (preferably spring or distilled) and place your seeds on the surface.

Some smokers might be pleased to see some cannabis seeds in their bag, and might think themselves lucky. However, finding seeds in a bag is bad for various reasons. For one, this means the grower has messed up and allowed their female plants to be pollinated by an invading male. When flowers are pollinated, they stop producing THC-containing resin and divert their energy toward producing seeds. Secondly, the seeds will have added to the overall weight of the bag, which means less weed for your buck.

Immature cannabis seeds, on the other hand, tend to be green and have a soft outer shell that breaks when any kind of pressure is applied to it.

While it might seem like a trivial detail, properly ventilating your cannabis micro grow is a must. When working with such a small space, air can quickly become stagnant and start creating a lot of problems for your plants. This is because plants consume the CO₂ in their environment for photosynthesis. When growing in such small spaces, your plants have very limited access to fresh, CO₂-rich air, making proper ventilation a must for healthy plants.

In your bloom box, however, we recommend placing your grow light along the sides of your plants. This will provide the best light penetration and allow you to grow a longer vertical canopy of buds. We also recommend using a vertical net to keep your plants centered. You can also use this net to train your plants gently and control their growth as you see fit, given your space.

How to Use Growing Techniques in a Cannabis Micro Grow Setup

LST is easily one of our favourite grow techniques, and can come in super handy when growing in small spaces. The only way your LST technique might vary when micro growing is in how you direct your plant’s growth. Remember, the goal of LST is to open up your plant and improve light penetration. Think about how you’ll achieve that given the lighting in your micro grow room.

Thanks to new and improved grow gear (especially grow lights) and an increase in knowledge concerning the cannabis plant, micro growers are able to churn out great harvests in extremely small spaces.

The biggest issue with bagseed is that they’re almost guaranteed to come with herming issues, since bagseed is nearly always pollinated by a plant that hermed unintentionally.

If small seeds were bad. I wouldn’t have liked the shiva shanti I had. I’ve had good stuff from small seeds. Same with big seeds. Then again. I’ve had utter junk from big seeds too. Yet to find garbage in a small seed though. Maybe a few more mystery runs and I’ll come across one.

You can’t really compare the size of seeds from unrelated crosses, since a lot of natural variation in seed sizes exist.

But as the other guy summed up much nicer than I have. They’re only crap if they’re immature.

When it comes to small seeds, the bigger issue is their size relative to the other seeds from the same batch. If you have a bunch of seeds from the same cross, the smallest seeds have a higher chance of not being viable.

At least that’s the way I remember it.
