Germinate cannabis seeds: Best ways
The best cannabis seeds can be expensive, so it pays to have a good germination method. Here are three different, but fully proven, methods which will give you consistently good germination rates (assuming the cannabis seed was of good quality of course)
The three detailed marijuana seed germination guides detail the use of cotton pads and RootIt Cubes, as well as traditional soil germination of cannabis seeds. The seed germination guides are equally valid for feminized seeds, autoflower seeds, regular seeds, CBD seeds, outdoor cannabis seeds or any other type of cannabis seed.
How to germinate cannabis seeds in cotton pads?
Using the same make-up cotton pads available in any pharmacy or drug store you can germinate your cannabis seeds easily. The method shows how you can germinate marijuana seeds between two damp cotton pads and then leave these pads on a dish covered in transparent kitchen film.
How to germinate cannabis seeds in soil?
Many growers have used soil for years. Germinating your cannabis seeds in soil is easy enough with a few simple rules. The germination guide explains soil preparation. It explains how to place the seed in the soil and advises on watering, temperatures etc. If you want to germinate and grow your seeds in soil then this is the guide for you.
How to germinate cannabis seeds in RootIt Cubes?
RootIt Cubes, along with many similar germination cubes, all use a moisture retaining material to geminate your cannabis seeds. Often this is a synthetic brown foam polymer, but glass wool and coco fibre have been used. The guide explains how the germination cubes are prepared and kept moist, as well as showing how to place the cannabis seed inside. RootIt Cubes and similar products are widely available online and in grow shops, they are a convenient and easy way to germinate weed seeds. If you are planning to germinate your cannabis seeds with germination cubes then this guide is for you.
Important. Avoid pulling the seed casing away from the seedling (especially new growers), you can damage the seedling. Its always better to wait until the seed case dries out and falls off naturally. Ripping the seed casing away from the first set of baby leaves (cotyledon) too early damages the young seedling and can kill it.
Each grower will have their own preferred germination method, these methods are our suggestions based on many years of customer feedback from Dutch Passion customers. Good luck!

How much water do seed need during the germination (in soil) And than in the growning time? Please help me!
A seed does not need any extra water as long as the soil you are germinating in is nice and moist.
You can spray your soil with a spray a couple of times if you feel it needs more moisture during germination.
During the growing period, it’s very dependent on your growing conditions, size of pot, temperature, size of the plant etc.
So we can’t give you a perfect answer to your question. Indoors you water the plants every day, with an amount that suits the period and conditions of that plant, at that time.
Thank you very very much…I hope I didn ‘t use a wrong mix of soil! I’ll tell you! Bye.
Nice and very informative blog, thank you so much for sharing this information with us.I always keen to read such a amazing post.

I wish you a lot of good luck with your grow! If you need help, let us know
Hi, i dont have microwave foil so instead i poked a couple of holes on the cling film. Is that okay?
Yes that’s definately okey to poke some holes in regular cling film
I use a good pinched chunk of rock wool.Use enough to hold moisture to geminate the seedlings. You can watch the process .
Dutch-Passion Cannabis Seed Bank has been developing, improving, producing and selling marijuana seeds since 1987 and is one of the main Dutch companies specializing in cannabis breeding. Over the years Dutch-Passion has gained a lot of experience in the development, production and marketing of top class marijuana seeds.
Dutch Passion – inventor of feminized cannabis seeds
In 1998, Dutch Passion made a major breakthrough in marijuana seed technology by developing feminized cannabis seeds. Under the right growing conditions, these “Feminized Seeds” produce only female plants. The formula of their success is the genetic control they have over their strains and the constant flow of new genetics they receive worldwide.
Their main concern is improving their seed stock. Besides the genetics of their cannabis seeds, they specifically select them for their maturity, size, and germination rate (95%). This breeder does their best to provide you with the optimal genetics now and in the future, whether regular or feminized.
Dutch Passion Seeds
“You don’t buy that many seeds a year, it’s one area of your life where compromise isn’t necessary so choose a seed bank with a long tradition and proven record” – Dutch Passion In the 1970�s, Dutch Passion�s founder, Henk van Dalen, began collecting and breeding with cannabis seeds which he found in the early Dutch cannabis imports arriving from all over the world. He realised that it was possible to grow your own cannabis and often it was far superior to the often poor-quality, heavily seeded, imported product. Some of his best varieties were selectively crossed and bred and he soom realised that many people would prefer to grow their own cannabis from seed rather than buy it on the streets. In 1987, the Dutch Passion Seed Company was formally established. 10 years later, they became the first seed bank to learn how to make feminized seeds, something that many people at the time said was impossible with cannabis. Ever since then, Dutch Passion have been busy trying to create the best cannabis seeds and trying to keep up with customer interest in other varieties of seeds such as autoflowering and CBD-rich etc. Dutch Passion grow from their own gene bank of original genetics collected decades ago, These days, many newer seed banks simply regurgitate existing varieties/genetics and put a new name on them. Dutch Passion are both proud and fortunate to have their own legendary varieties from the 1980�s and plenty of old original seeds to use for future projects. Crowned Best Seed bank at Spannabis 2014, Dutch Passion are well known for their sophistication and quality. The Dutch Passion breeders concern themselves with creating and preserving quality, and their varieties have won many prizes in cannabis cup competitions.
