Is it true that a heating pad/humidity dome speeds up germination?
I personally use my DVR and a plastic baggie/paper towel when I germinate seeds to get the same effect.
Respect to this game, I used my ex’s dryer and popped three in a day, lmao.
Top of computer case overnight. The residual heat from the day is perfect. Wouldn’t leave it on while using
I never used a dome when I grew. Just put the beans in the final grow pot with wet soil and viola, 3 days later I have seedlings. 5 days and I have my first true set of leaves.
Simulates the insides of a critters stomach, where they like to pop in nature
Spring actually, but hey.
I picked up a heating pad from Amazon to get even/consistent heat. Was using a cable box but the temp fluctuates a lot and didn’t really get warm enough for me
Well after four days she’s finally broken ground. Time to take away the extra amenities cause I pretty sure it doesn’t need a dome/extra heat anymore. Gonna give here some fresh air
Germinating marijuana seeds
Hey everyone I’m having a little trouble with germinating my seeds. I balanced the ph levels in 2 6in rockwool cubes and they’ve been in a dome since the 19th and I don’t see a thing. I’ve got so many different opinions on light idk what to do so if anyone has a 95% germination rate please school me. Any help, much appreciated
UPDATE: woke up this morning and one them just shot up man it’s crazy because 8 hrs ago you couldn’t see shit. I’m happy and nervous. I don’t want to fuck this up lol
Paper towel damp not soaked in a plastic baggy folded over stick it in a kitchen cabinet leave door closed for 2 days and check back should be gtg don’t worry about ph for seeding.
Right on the money solid method, the paper towel will tell you if they sprout or not and once the do it easy to tare away and place as needed.
Same here. 100% easy. I put mine on top of my router for a bit of warmth.
I’ve done about 30 seeds. I use a small germination mat and sandwich the seeds between paper towels. I’ve had good luck around 85° F. For some reason I have not had good luck with germinating directly into the rockwool. I think it’s because they tend to germinate better in complete dark. Just paper towels in a tray covered in a magazine or something not heavy in order to block the light. Keeping them damp is enough, not saturated.
I don’t know anyone who has a 95% success rate. I don’t know if that’s possible. My personal rate was under 75%. Keep the seeds that do not germinate and let your supplier know. Don’t get upset with them and they will probably replace the seeds that didn’t take. In my experience a plant will let you know it wants to grow almost immediately. I’ve had them germinate in less than two days using this method. Also important to note is that I’ve had strong plants rarely take three weeks to germinate. My personal cutoff is one month before I count the seed as not viable.
Also, I don’t think pH is critical here unless you’re over 7 or under 5. The seedlings don’t require any outside nutrients for a while so I have just used tap water. But it’s good practice to monitor and won’t hurt anything.
I hope this helps. I’ve lost a lot of seeds to improper germination but this method gets good strong seedlings pretty quick. I definitely recommend trying different things to find what works best for you. My main point is if you keep them damp, dark, and warm they’ll crack within three days if they’re viable.
