How To Germinate Marijuana Seeds With Jiffy Pellets
My favorite way to germinate marijuana seeds is with jiffy pellets. I currently have a 100% germination rate using jiffy pellets!
Using jiffy pellets is a very safe and easy way to germinate your marijuana seeds. There are only a few steps, which I will go over here in detail.
You can find jiffy pellets and almost every garden store, or you can order them here. (Of course I always order them online because I am a lazy stoner.)
They come dry and compressed. We will need to add water to them so they expand and become usable for planting.
You should NOT soak the jiffy pellets. They will become too wet and if you squeeze them out they can become unstable.
Instead, we need to slowly pour 1 cup of water over them. Then wait several minutes until they expand.
Once the jiffy pellets have expanded, we can plant our marijuana seeds.
It is very important to only put one marijuana seed per jiffy pellet.
Take one of your seeds and put it about .5″ deep in the pellet. It does not matter which way the seed is turned. Cover it with some of the top soil.
If you have a jiffy pellet kit with a dome, place that over the top. Marijuana seeds need a relatively humid environment to germinate, and the dome will help with that. Just make sure to take it off a few times per day so the seeds can get fresh air.
It will take the seeds a few days to germinate. It is very important to make sure that they jiffy pellets do not dry out during this time.
The ideal temperature marijuana seed germination is 70°-78°, so try to keep the jiffy pellets in an environment that can accommodate that.
Anywhere from 2-8 days later, you will see your marijuana seeds begin to pop their heads out of the jiffy pellets. This will not happen to all your seeds at one time, so be patient and do not mess with the ones that need a little extra time.
Once the seeds have broken through the soil, they will need to be placed on either a 24/0 or 16/8 light schedule to start the germination phase.
Good luck with germinating your marijuana seeds with jiffy pellets! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments below.
Rambo, thx a lot for the article one question, why u not reccomend to use humidity domes in the first time when seeds not connected with soil or rookwool and cant get water from it s with small root?
hello. after i put the seeds in the pallets and cover it with the cover to keep it moist. Do i have to put it in dark room or not necessarly?
Temperature is important for the germinating cannabis seeds….I like to keep it 70-85 degrees. I usually have a thermometer right on top of the medium. You can also add bottom heat with one of the seed sprouting horticultural heating …
