Germinating Marijuana Seeds With Paper Towel – How to Start Seeds Fast!

Welcome to today’s blog post where I will be sharing with you a method for sprouting seeds using paper towels. This method is particularly useful for smaller seeds and can be used for a variety of plants, including fruits and flowers. Today, I will be demonstrating the process using Japanese pink kochiya grass seeds.

Before we begin, let’s gather the materials needed for this method. You will need a bottle of water, topical hydrogen peroxide (which can be found at any drugstore), a ziploc bag, a marker pen, a paper towel, and the seeds of your choice.

It is important to label the ziploc bag with the date and type of seed you are working with.

To start, open the bottle of water and pour out a small amount from the top. Next, take the topical hydrogen peroxide and fill the cap. Slowly pour the hydrogen peroxide from the cap into the bottle of water. This solution will help speed up the germination process and increase the germination percentage.

It is also a good idea to mark the bottle of water to avoid accidentally drinking it.

Now, it’s time to place the seeds on the paper towel. If you have never seen Japanese kochiya grass seeds before, they are very small and tend to scatter easily. If you are interested in learning more about this plant, I have three videos on my YouTube channel dedicated to it. Once you have placed the seeds on the paper towel, fold the towel into quarters, ensuring that the seeds are enclosed within.

Next, dampen the paper towel with the hydrogen peroxide solution. You don’t need a lot of water, just enough to wet the towel completely. Fold the towel one more time to ensure that the seeds are evenly moistened. Now, place the towel inside the ziploc bag.

For the initial sprouting stage, the seeds do not require direct sunlight.

However, it is beneficial to place them in a location where they can receive some sunlight each day. If direct sunlight is not available, a well-lit room without direct sunlight will suffice. The seeds should start to sprout within the next couple of days.

It is important to note that once the seeds have sprouted, their sunlight requirements may change. It is best to refer to the recommendations provided by the seed company for the specific plant you are growing.

Additionally, be mindful of the temperature requirements for your seeds.
