How to germinate ruderalis Seeds

Germination of the ruderalis seeds is a process of getting the seeds to sprout. A white coloured tendril pops out of the seed during germination and this is known as taproot and this is the first root of the plant. From this taproot, all other roots of this cannabis plant will sprout. It means this taproot is the start of the life cycle of this plant.

This taproot or other tiny roots of the taproot will start getting bigger and longer and eventually these will break the shell and first leaves of your plant emerge from the seed. After the cotyledons, which were already created inside the seeds, the real set of leaves will come and this will be the plants actual first set of leaves that it has grown itself. Cannabis seeds are very expensive and thus you should not waste any seed by using poor germination methods.

Germinating methods:

Planting directly in growing medium

This is the most natural process of germinating and it is very effective. Plant the marijuana seeds directly in the soil and it will start to produce taproots. The benefit of this process is that the seed is germinating in the medium where they will grow till harvesting and thus they do not have to readjust to any other condition. On the contrary, when we plant a sprouted seed from a different medium, it causes stress to the young plant. In this kind of germination, you can use soil or coco coir. You need to plant the seed at 0.5-1 inch deep in a moist soil. Remember that the soil or coco coir should not be soaking and keep the surrounding warm.

Seeding plugs

It is another one of the most ruderalis marijuana seed germination technique. The plugs are already having a hole and you just have to insert the seed in that hole and close the top. Add the water as instructed and the rest of the conditions will automatically be provided by the plugs.

Germination station

These are professionally made germinating stations, which provides all the necessary conditions and environment for proper germinating of the seeds. The seeds will be germinated in a starter seeding cube. Once the seed is sprouted, you can place the entire thing in the soil or any growing medium. You can easily make a germination station by having a dome of plastic over a plate on a heating pad.

Soak in water

Soak you ruderalis marijuana seed in a glass of water for overnight. The water can be little warm. It is effective for the seeds which have harder shells or for the older seeds.

Paper towel

It is another very common method of germinating marijuana seeds. You have to fold the seeds in a wet paper towel and leave it in a warm place. Make sure you are very careful while checking to see if the seeds are sprouted and avoid hurting the taproot.
