how long does it take a marijuana seed to sprout

Ph’ed water all over a paper towel placed in a baggie. throw the seed up in the thing and close the damp paper towel over the seed. DON’t close the bag. Place the bagggie on top of a warm place like a cable box or p.c. Place a bowl over the bag to trap heat. Over night the seed will POP. The tap root soon follows. 100% germ rate for me.

Your probably not gonna get all 20 seeds growing. The seeds you wanna use are the thick, "beefy" ones. usually brown in color with "tiger stripes" on them. also most regular brown seeds pop too. But defiantly not the lil green ones. Those are immature seeds

But then again pot will almost grow anywhere if the conditions are OK. But anything to make it more suitable for the plant, the more chance of maximum growth with maximum yield.

yes the soil will be to hard. You best bet to assure outdoor growth: dig a big enough hole to fit a large pot. Dispose of the dirt u dug up and fill the hole with a top soil mix or organic mix from your local nursery or hardware store. Make sure the area you plant the seeds in is an area that has loose soil that becomes spongey when wet, holds water well, and drains well.

The paper towel baggie method takes me 2 days to see a tap root.

As we’ve mentioned, cannabis is a dioecious plant, meaning male and female reproductive organs appear on different plants.

So don’t discount bud because it has a seed or two in it. While not ideal, it could be the origins of the next great weed strain.

Some varieties of cannabis can produce male parts alongside female flowers on the same plant, especially if exposed to environmental stressors. These plants are known as hermaphrodites, and sometimes they can self-pollinate to create seeds.

Step 4

Pre-flowers can initially be extremely small and hard to identify with the naked eye, but you can use a magnifying glass to get a better look.

One drawback of clones is they need to be taken during the vegetative stage of a plant—flower is too late—so if you have a small setup with only one light, it can be hard to keep clones alive while flowering other plants, because the two need different amounts of light.

However, potency in autoflowering varieties has increased significantly since their initial introduction, with some breeders crossbreeding the low-THC ruderalis with other more potent varieties.

Was the seed found in good weed?

Some seeds germinate very rapidly while others can take a while, but generally, seeds should germinate in 3-10 days. If it’s been two weeks and a seed hasn’t sprouted, it’s probably a dud and won’t sprout.

If growing male and female cannabis seeds, they’ll start to show their sex organs, or “pre-flowers,” after 8-10 weeks from germination.
