Learn to Grow Marijuana

Picture this: a friend invites you into their home to visit their grow op and ushers you into a room, brightly lit, where you find a virtual sea of lush, green marijuana plants. You start to sweat a bit as you walk through the stalks, the aroma of potent pot hanging heavily in the air.

The process of successfully growing the best marijuana doesn’t have to be this involved – even the most amateur gardener can easily achieve fantastic results with a few simple plants and high-quality lighting.

Start with the Right Marijuana Seeds

A strong foundation is key to guaranteeing a great crop, and you’re going to want to start your marijuana garden with high quality marijuana seeds. Don’t rely on seeds from friends and well wishers to produce healthy and strong plants with heavy buds. For superior genetics guaranteed to germinate, the masters know where to buy the best cannabis seeds: they turn to the experts – online weed seed retailers like Pacific Seed Bank (we offer delivery of our top quality cannabis seeds across the United States and Canada).

We highly recommend shopping for your cannabis seeds online, since Internet-based vendors can offer a wider selection of high quality seeds at significantly better prices. Of course, it’s nearly impossible for even the most avid ganja gardener to determine whether a seed is going to produce a super healthy plant, but you can run through a simple checklist to figure out if it will at least germinate.

– Is the seed a dark color with a waxy coat? It may also feature brown spots or stripes.
– Is the seed easily crushed when you press it between your fingers?
– Does the seed sink when you drop it in a glass of water?

Germinating Your Seeds FTW

Seeds selected? Check.
Grow room setup? Check.
The next step is to germinate your little seeds, which is the process that unlocks your little seed’s potential.

The PSB Simple Germination Guide

Empty seeds into a glass of filtered or distilled water. If they don’t sink, tap them so they go to the bottom of the glass.

After 14-18 hours, tip your seeds out of the glass onto a plate lined with a paper towel. Drain excess water from the plate, but make sure the paper towels are relatively moist.

Place the plate in a warm, dark place where the conditions will remain constant for 5-7 days, which is about as long as it will take for your seeds to germinate. Make sure you check them periodically to ensure the paper towel is damp.

4 Once your seed has developed a taproot that’s at least ¼ inch long, you can remove them from the plate, careful not to touch the taproot with your bare hands, and transfer to your grow medium.
