The Glass and Paper Towel Method

This method is by far the easiest (and simplest) and has been tried and true for centuries, and goes as far back as when cannabis and hemp has been first grown and cultivated as a crop.

What you’ll need:

  • A glass of room-temp distilled water. Rain water or spring water is ok too.
  • Paper towels
  • A plate or a tray
  • A clock

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Soak your seeds in water for 14-18 hours.
  2. Place some paper towels onto a plate or tray.
  3. After the soaking period ends pour the water and the seeds onto the paper towel(s), making sure to drain off excess water.
  4. Fold the moist paper towel(s) over the soaked seeds so that they are fully covered.
  5. Place your tray or plate with the wet paper towel(s) and seeds in a warm and dark space that is consistently between 75 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. (Some use a seed mat or the back of a warm appliance to ensure this temperature range)
  6. During this germination stage, keep your seeds moist by pouring some distilled, rain, or spring water onto the paper towels so that they’re well saturated, but not to the point where your seeds are sitting in pools of water. The paper towel should be well dampened, but not soaking wet.
  7. Keep an eye on your seeds, and once their taproot is 1/4 to 3/4 inches in length, you can then plant your seedlings in soil or any other suitable grow medium you are planning on using.

Please Note: It usually takes just 3-7 days for the taproot to be at the right length, but it can sometimes take as long as 14 days.
