Germinating cannabis seeds seems often to be more of a problem than it should be. The problem is that these little gems are costly and every failed seed is counted in dollars lost. And yet seed germination should be easy: provide them with the right temperature, moisture and darkness and they should sprout.
So why don’t they?
Too much water can drown an emerging cannabis seedling, and too often people allow them to dry out. Variations in heat can also effect good germination rates as the seeds begin to emerge and are then halted. We cover good techniques for sprouting seeds but also came across this tip and thought it worth sharing.
It comes from Mojave Mama who lives in Arizona. Being a dry climate she has problems with humidity levels and came up with this ingenuous way to ensure her marijuana seeds get an even temperature to help get them started.
As she points out, there are female growers who are serious about learning to grow, not there just to add titilation. The bra germination may seem like just more cheesecake, but it really is an extremely effective way to germinate.
And men can do it too, with 3X5 bandaids, and tape the packets on their body somewhere. At night, when I take off my bra, I just use a huge bandaid like that to tape the packet on my ribcage, under my breasts, and by morning, the seeds usually all have legs sticking out and area ready to transplant into their given medium.
The skin’s body temperature is so germination-friendly. It may be 98.6 inside the body, but outside, on the skin’s surface, it’s just the perfect temperature to rapidly germ seeds.
Even better, it’s so portable, so you don’t have to worry about the dishes of paper toweling at home drying out or getting overheated–you take your seeds with you to work or wherever, and know they are safe and at a constant temperature.
