GERMINATION

Germination is the first step when starting from seed :)
This guide will teach you how to successfuly germinate your seeds with a battle tested method; the shot glass.

#1

WHY SEEDS GERMINATE

done

Seeds are made to survive through winter and sprout when 3 conditions are met:

  • Water: activates the seed’s growth hormones while making the shell easier to break through.
  • Temperature: signals the plant it is safe to sprout, winter is over
  • Oxygen: determines how deep the seed is, low oxygen would mean it’s too deep and won’t be able to reach the surface in time.

STEP 3

Place the glass in a completely dark place, a cupboard works well.
The process usually takes between 24-72hours.
Don't forget to label your glass if you are germinating different strains at the same time.
