How to grow cannabis from seed

Wet a paper towel, place your seeds on the towel and gently fold over. Place the moist paper towel with your seeds in a plastic bag, exhale some air into it, seal it and place it in a warm place. Seeds germinate best at 78°F. Within 72 hours a taproot should appear.

How long will it take to germinate?

Seeds will germinate within 24 to 72 hours. Keep the seeds in a warm, moist (not wet) and dark environment.

What if my seeds don’t germinate?

If your seeds do not germinate after 3-4 days, check to see if the seed is still viable by placing it in a glass of water. If it sinks, it is still viable. If it floats, it will likely not sprout. If viable, try repeating the germination process.

When can I put the seedlings outside?

A seedling should only go outside if the temperature is above 60°F to avoid stunting, and after first acclimating it to direct sunlight. A simple trick is to put the seedling near a sunny window for a couple weeks. Once it has grown a couple layers of serrated leaves, move the plant outside for a few hours during the sunniest part of the day, increasing it by an hour each day for about two weeks. Your seedling should then be strong enough to be moved outside full time. Remember, during the vegetative phase, you want the seedling to receive 18 hours of light, so you may have to supplement your outdoor sunlight.

How do I sex the seedling if it’s not feminized?

Generally, the earliest your seedling will show male traits is 4 weeks. Males tend to grow taller quicker than female plants. Otherwise, you’ll typically be able to sex your seedlings at 45 days. Even when seedlings are feminized, there is a chance a female can show male traits when under stress.

How are feminized seeds created?

There are multiple ways to create feminized seeds by applying different types of natural solutions. The most common is colloidal silver. These solutions are sprayed on mother plants that are created from stable clones. The solutions force the mother plant to grow male pollen sacs. These pollen sacs only contain female chromosomes. That pollen can then be collected or the mother plant allowed to pollinate other female plants. The resulting seeds are feminized up to 99.9%.

When will the plant start flowering?

The flowering phase is when the female plant develops its reproductive anatomy. Then comes trichome development. In cannabis, trichomes actually function as a defense mechanism. During the flowering phase, light is decreased from 18 to 10-12 hours and, most importantly, the plant has uninterrupted darkness. Flowering phase usually lasts 7-9 weeks or longer. Autoflower strains, which don’t need a change in light to begin flowering, can start flowering within 4-6 weeks.

Can I cut clones off my seedling?

Technically, yes. As long as the seedling has multiple side branches or enough internode separation that you can take a cutting without damaging your seedling. Generally you should grow your seedling out for between two weeks to a month before attempting to cut a clone. The cutting should be immediately put in a rooting solution.

What is the average shelf life of a cannabis seed?

The shelf-life of cannabis seeds depends on the robustness of the seed itself. On average, if kept in a cool, dark (not humid) place your seeds can last from six months to a year.

How can you extend the shelf life of cannabis seeds?

Cannabis seeds can last for years if they are kept in a vacuum sealed container and refrigerated.

How do I tell if my seeds are still viable? Worth growing?

To check if your seed is still viable, drop it into a cup of water. If it sinks, it is still viable. If it floats it will likely not germinate.

Which grow faster, seeds or clones?

Plants from seed will generally grow faster because they will produce a tap root whereas clones produce more lateral roots. However, if you start with a clone, you will have bypassed the germination and sprouting phases, which will cut down on your overall growing time.

Why are some seeds so expensive?

Feminized and autoflower seeds tend to be more expensive than regular seeds. Feminized seeds result in female plants that produce the desired flower or bud. Autoflower seeds are not dependent on changes in light patterns to flower and have a shorter growth cycle, making them easier for beginners.

What seed strains are best for humid vs dry climates?

Sativa or sativa-dominant hybrid strains, overall, are best for warm and humid situations. Dry climates are simpler to grow in, however take care to keep your soil watered so it doesn’t dry out or get too hot that it bakes your roots.

Marijuana Seeds are too Expensive to Buy from Companies

In Afghanistan you can literally get a bag filled with more than 10000 seeds for a dollar! You can go outside and see them all over the ground near the marijuana fields and people walk by it all, it’s actually highly looked down upon and stoners are criticized. Not even kidding! My cousin brought a huge bag of seeds and eats them raw with tea.

These seed companies kind of need to lower prices for people who just want to grow for recreational purposes. 5 dollars per 5 seeds sounds more than enough to make a good profit, but 5 for 50? This is just insane!! They’re like the Rothchild banking family who were the only ones who made money during the depression from monopolizing everything.

That’s understandable, but business doesn’t mean exploiting people to the extent that you’re making a 9999% profit. Had these companies been generous and honest they’d still be making a big profit for a dollar per seed and also help out people who don’t have the money. I hope marijuana is legalized so these rats go bankrupt and people can share clones and seeds freely.

To hell with a capitalist system.

The difference is quality of marijuana. The strains we buy are good quality weed and are monopolized.

If I could, I’d sell them for 25 cents a seed, minimum 10 seed purchase and you pay for shipping. Buy 50 for 10 dollars as a deal. Profit for me and cheap seeds for you- Win win. I don’t think like a pig to exploit you because you’re probably a middle-class citizen. I care about people, strangers or not, we all must learn to love one another and set aside our monetary cravings.

eh, you can pay for all those seeds not knowing what they came from, could be hermies. although i would buy some seeds from iran, those flower fast as hell.
i dont think 2.50-3 bucks a seed is bad though, not too bad since you can always just clone, you make much more off your product as well. those companies gotta make a living, buy more places to grow so they can make and stabilize more strains so we can have more variety when choosing. if the breeders good, ill pay.

best way to get seeds is to just leave a male around a female before those buds get huge, then they should have some seeds by the time you harvest. if you grow indoors, grow outdoors, the season just started so you could get a shit ton with just 1 male and 1 female, wont have to buy seeds for a while.

Quality is not an issue. You’re getting MJ from Afghanistan grown naturally from a country that is crowned for their marijuana.

Seed companies, you’re probably getting seeds grown indoors, hence a loss of natural quality had they been grown outdoors in a natural environment.

Iran and Afghanistan: same people, same country (Persia), divided by political imbalances between tribes. Their climates are generally the same as they are both generally in the same geographic region.

The probability of getting a hermie would proabably be higher had you ordered from a supplier selling indoor seeds, again, the elements are not natural, chemical-based nutes and altered water can change seed dna. Afghanistan has natural marijuana growing miles long.

i agree, the reason ive been using bagseed is because well one i didnt wanna wait two weeks or w.e for seeds and two because seeds are very overpriced on those sites. the only decent prices are the regular seeds and then you can end up with a male and of paid 20 bucks for it LOL. even the feminized seeds go male ive heard and if i paid 50 bucks for seeds that went male? ? mmm-mmm all hell would break loose

well we cant generalize all the growers in one place, for sure some of them use synthetic nutrients to feed all of those plants. im not sure how fertile the soil is over there either. and in those huge grows they dont take out males, females or herms. id pollinate outdoors, though i dont see much of a problems with indoors. stress causes herms, if the environment is stable and theyve gotten tons of pollen, i dont think theyll likely hermie. i just got some seeds off my girls actually, i only pollinated the preflowers but almost every branch has a seed on it, the pollen was carried over by bees as well because bees are often pollinating my other flowers as well, this is a great environmental benefit as well. im gonna chop and reveg but i expect ill get a ton of seeds since i got 7 after only chopping off 3 flowers.

+ like truth is most breeders sell green as well so they profit twice. Plus some of the time they keep the best seeds and sell us year old improperly stored dead or miss labeled seeds what a hustle.

We should really find a way to start a seed share.

yea when i ordered from nirvana and noticed fem and reg seeds were the same price except they were 5 or 10 packs. so i got regular so i can produce my own seeds. now my friend gave me a fem NL seed and it grew no problem, pollinated then grew 1 seed from that plant and it was male, then female hairs a while later. i will never buy fem seeds just for the reason of hermie now.

want guaranteed female? buy regular seeds then pick a good female and clone it.

Islam, I understand what you are saying, but then it doesn’t sound like you have actually thought this through. Of course a bag of anything you buy in a country who’s economy is like Afghanistan is going to cost you next to nothing, unless that item is highly in demand. I am sure grain and food is priced higher (although I do not know that for a fact).
Although Economics has a lot of flawed theories and like most things, assumes a lot, the basics are fairly sounds, as mentioned previously, Demand and Supply for starters. You have your big bag of seeds and you are in a field in Afghanistan. Great, what do you do now? How are all these people/customers – certainly not the ones in Afghanistan, they look down on it according to you – going to find out about your product? When you do find a way to tell them, how much is that going to cost you? In the interim while you are waiting for your first customer. who is going to pay for this, who is going to pay for you to eat, who is going to pay your accountant when you do taxes, your phone bills when you need to make calls. and this is assuming you just picked up your seeds at the side of a road. Lets not even get into the cost of producing these. Look in Land, Labour, Capital, and Enterprise. factors of production that will make you realise that your argument is well principled, but flawed in many ways.
I know of a company that enables people with good seed stock to sell it through them as a breeder, they give the person with the seeds the chance to give their own price, and they try to keep prices at max to 3 euro per seed. They hope to keep bringing down this price as they have the same thoughts as you in principle. You can find more info about them in the 600 Club on RIU.

How Much Do Marijuana Seeds Cost?

How much do marijuana seeds cost? No matter your budget, you have plenty of marijuana seed options. Cannabis seeds can be affordable or expensive, depending on what you’re going for. Learn how much marijuana seeds cost with our seed price guide that breaks down the factors that affect seed price and how you can score excellent marijuana seed deals.

What Are Marijuana Seeds?

When planted in a suitable growing medium, cannabis seeds germinate into cannabis plants and produce flower buds covered in resinous trichomes. In the right environment, roots can break through the seed’s outer shell and begin the growth process.

Cannabis seeds contain all of the plant’s genetic information that influences the physical traits of the cannabis plant. Cannabis breeders may cross specific cannabis genetics to produce a strain with all their desirable qualities.

When choosing between cannabis seeds, you will run across the following types of cannabis seeds:

  • Feminized – Feminized cannabis seeds only produce female, flowering plants.
  • Regular – Regular cannabis seeds can either produce a male or female plant.
  • Autoflowering – Autoflowering seeds produce plants that do not require a change in the light cycle to begin flowering.

Each has its advantages and disadvantages. No matter what seed type you choose, you will most likely be considering its price before buying. Overall, cannabis seeds are affordable and can be affordably shipped to many countries.

How Much Do Marijuana Seeds Cost?

Cannabis seeds vary in price depending on various factors, including genetics, amount of seeds, breeder, potency, and trends. Seed prices can range from just a few bucks to over $100 per seed.

Factors That Affect the Price of Marijuana Seeds

Understanding the factors that influence the price of cannabis seeds can help you find the best deal.

Genetics

Quality genetics can fetch a higher price than your run-of-the-mill varieties. Still, you can get quality seeds for an affordable price if you buy from a reputable seed bank or breeder. High-quality seeds are more expensive to account for the breeder’s years-long journey at creating a stable, flavorful, and aromatic strain.
