how to germinate cannabis seeds in rapid rooter

Cannabis seeds and humans have a long history together, with the oldest known relationship dating back many centuries. In 2007, archaeologists found cannabis seeds in a Chinese tomb that was 2,700 years old. Although the seeds were ancient, they were preserved so well that they may have germinated.

6. Carefully place each germinated cannabis seed inside the hole of its own Rapid Rooter, taproot down. Tear off a small piece of rapid rooter to cover the hole on top of the seed for moisture retention and some resistance. This will allow the seedling to become strong before surfacing. Splash the seeded rapid rooters with plain water one more time before leaving them under a gentle light source such as a T-5 (4).

Before Germination

Together, we can add to this multi-millennia relationship and play a part in the beautiful history of cannabis.
When growing from seed, you have control over every aspect of the product you produce. You can pick flavors and effects that you enjoy, making your strain selections unique and personal.

Germinating Cannabis Seeds – Growing your own weed is one of the most rewarding experiences in life! Growing cannabis allows you to discover phenotypes that no one else has ever experienced.

8. Once the seedling has fully surfaced and taproot is visibly growing out of the bottom of the plug, transplant it into your desired medium and feed it with plain water or a very light vegetative mix, making sure not to overwater for the first week or two of life (6).

Okay so I placed my seeds in water until they sank, but I also turned on a heater on the containers to get them hot (no heating pad).. the water got pretty hot for about an hour. Could that have been bad for the seed first off/killed them.

2-3) inches. For this reason, and to prevent the media from drying out very quickly, it is recommended to start seeds in a container at least 3.5-4 inches deep. This way the tap root has sufficient room to stretch out from the outset. The seedlings also wont have to be handled so much. You can use Rooters to germ Cannabis seeds, but you’re going to want to transplant them into a larger container relatively soon after they sprout. Right after they sprout you should see a taproot hanging out of the plug, which isn’t really a good thing.

The seeds cracked so I placed them in damp paper towel in an enclosed tupperware bin. The tails haven’t showed yet (could they be dead) It has been two days.

I placed them in small rapid rooter plugs (dunked them in 6.0ph water then rang them out) and put a small humidity dome over the top.

Rooters/plant plugs are awesome for cuttings, but for Cannabis seeds it only seems like a slight step up from paper towels to me.

Below you will find a list of supplies you may require. All items are not that expensive, and many will get multiple uses.

Yes if it has sprouted, then plant the seed.

Gear for Germinating

The marijuana seedling should be at least 6-8 inches high before transplanting into a growing medium.

There is a hole in the top of the pellet this is where we will place the seed next. So the seed does not fall into the bottom of the medium that would be tragic.
