Fast Buds Germination Guide

After years of experimentation on hundreds of seeds, here’s what we’ve found to be the easiest and most effective way to germinate seeds. Your mileage may vary – but surely not by much.

First, pour a small glass of room temp water (75-80°F / 23-27°C). Tap water is fine, provided it’s not super high pH (7.3 pH is a good level).

Carefully place your Fast Buds seeds onto the surface of the water with a spoon. The seeds should be floating, but resist touching them with your fingers!

This method is particularly effective for seeds with resilient shells, or to “wake up” seeds which have been in refrigeration for over a year.

Next, place the glass in a very dark place (68-77°F / 20-25°C) and leave for 2-3 days until they start to germinate.

If they are not germinating after 72 hours, add a few drops of hydrogen peroxide and return to the darkness for 2 more days.

Once you see a tiny “tail” extending out 1 centimetre, the seed is good to come out of the water.

With a tweezer, carefully plant the cracked seeds a couple of centimetres deep, with tails pointing down, then cover with soil and lightly pat it down. Once buried, spray water right on top of each seed, and keep it moist and dark until the plant gets growing.

Maintain the temperature/humidity at around 78°F / 25°C and about 50% humidity.

Very soon she’ll sprout upwards towards the light!
