How to Germinate Weed Seeds: Avoid 3 Most Common Mistakes

One of the first things a marijuana grower should learn is how to germinate weed seeds in a right way. There are plenty of germination techniques that may help you increase the yield or get more female plants from regular seeds. But there also are a lot of mistakes you'd better avoid if you want to get the most from your weed garden. WeedGrowHub will tell you about the three most common mistakes novice growers do and how to avoid them.

If you have decided to grow your own marijuana garden and do not know how to germinate seeds yet, we are happy to say that in most cases, there is nothing difficult in this process.

Protect the seeds from the light

There are three things marijuana seeds need the most during the germination process: darkness, warmth, and moisture. When all the three conditions are evenly balanced, it does not take long for your seeds to start showing those little first roots. But if the environment is not as friendly as it should be, germinating marijuana seeds turns to be quite a challenge.

Cannabis growers usually remember to watch the level of the temperature and humidity but forget to keep the seeds away from the light. Being exposed to the light during the germination process does nothing good to weed seeds. In contrast to cannabis plants, the seeds grow faster when there is no light at all.

It will take you a lot of time and money, and many attempts and failures before you learn how to grow high-quality cannabis. One of the most controversial questions every weed grower will eventually face is whether you should use marijuana clones or seeds.

Be careful with the roots

The roots are one of the most fragile parts of the marijuana plant, especially when the plant still looks like a little sprout that breaks through the seed. Therefore, you should be very careful with the sprouted seeds, especially when you check the seeds for the first germination signs or move the sprouted seeds to another medium. If you break the roots, your seeds will die, and you will have to start the germination process all over again. So, try to use a pair of tweezers while checking the weed seeds instead of just moving them with your hands.

Use only mature cannabis seeds

Trying to germinate immature marijuana seeds is one of the most common and crucial mistakes that the beginner weed growers make. When you use freshly harvested seeds, it usually takes you way longer to germinate them. And sometimes, immature seeds do not germinate at all.

There are many ways you can tell the fully mature marijuana seeds from immature. First, look at the color of the seeds: you need those that are brown and not green. Then, look at the size of your weed seeds: mature high-quality seeds are usually bigger than those that are not yet fully mature. Finally, check the outer shell of the seeds: mature cannabis seeds have an intact, firm coat.
