Immature cannabis seeds, on the other hand, tend to be green and have a soft outer shell that breaks when any kind of pressure is applied to it.
However, slight patience is required when conducting the float test, as results are not immediately apparent. You’ll have to wait for approximately 1–2 hours before confirming the results. Some good-quality seeds will need adequate time to absorb enough water for them to sink. Use this time to go water the garden and get some much needed pruning done. Upon your return, any seeds that remain on the surface are most likely not viable and won’t be worth further time and effort.
Growing Seeds From A Bag (Bagseed)
The one true method to test the genetic potential of a seed is to simply put it in the soil. It won’t take too long to see the results. This option is best for the hobby home grower who has time and space to spare for a risky project. Growers cultivating cannabis for commercial use likely don’t have the excess time to invest.
The fact that cannabis seeds can vary in appearance has led some growers to think that the size, shape, or color of a seed dictates its quality.
This simple and cost-effective method is a great way to tell the good genetics from the bad; they will sink or swim, literally. Seeds that remain buoyant on the surface are more than likely of poor quality and are to be discarded. Seeds that sink to the bottom like a botanical cannonball are probably healthy and should be germinated.
7-OG Kush Bag Seeds
I took 29 more clones from the 19 plants = a total of 48 plants. I could have taken more clones but I ran out of soil and fabric pots.
7 bag seeds = 6 seedlings (my fault-damage-should be 7)
Like most when conditions are right to buy, I get my seeds from an online source which can be a little scary since you don’t really know what sites are legit or not. I know; against the law, bla, bla, bla. But what are most people like us supposed to do? At least the site I use is trusted to come through on delivering though.
The original 3 female plants were flowered early because I needed weed and that left me with 19 plants from clones still growing in the veg cycle. (Watch the video I made showing how I germinated these seeds.)
