@pc420 I normally just soak my seed and put it straight into my soil and away it goes but I'm pretty sure you'd just make a hole big enough for it to fit into and Bury it and away you go

I normally do the wet paper towel method until i see the tail coming out n put straight into theyre forever pots. Give it plenty of humidity like a plastic cup or something over it n give it a couple of more days. Is the temperature ok cos the cold can make it slower or worse kill it. But id say cover it over with a plastic cup or film n get the humidity n temperature right. Hope this helps

There’s Many different ways to the same result.

personally I germinate using the paper towel method as above.

then when the roots show I simply put them into the soil I watered ( before the seeds put into it ) turn on the light and that’s it no hats ( plastic cups ) nada just simply put it into a hole I make with a tent peg. 

if germination is we’re you’ve have come unstuck then if you use the paper towel method don’t over wet it or the seeds drown.

Once they show roots and you plant them be very careful with any water you add afterwards you can easy uproot a seed by watering till it’s roots anchor it  

Or like the first post put the seeds in water then straight into the soil 

you would be better staring of in small pots and working your way up however putting it a forever home works.

there’s no right way or wrong way there’s just many different ways 

Hope you find the one that suits you.

good luck 🤞

I usually soak for a day or so then paper towel between two plates and into medium when the taps are about half an inch to an inch long.

I feel like a, like a slice of butter... melting on top of a big-ol' pile of flapjacks... yeah.

I drop my seeds in a mason jar of water in a dark place they float to begin with and after 2/3 day they have sunken and normally a tap root has appeared if not they have cracked on one side at that stage I place them around half inch to an inch in soil works every time,

Keep it Poppin Thumbs Up

@pc420 Did you mean you only half filled your pot with soil? You want to have your pots filled right to the top I would say, my last grow I was too stoned and didn't fill my pots right to the top, they were only like 2-3 inches from the top but it was still enough to make things difficult to work with. lol

The lip of the pot gets in the way and makes watering a bit of a pain, and it blocks the light from reaching the bottom of the plant.

It might be easier if you added a picture of it so we can see what she looks like in her new home 🙂

yes, i only filled it a bit above halfway filled.I had a few people say to only fill it 1/2 way I figured since it was so small I folded the sides down a bit so the light reaches the bottom of the plant she looks like she's loving life! Laughing Out Loud the last pic. is of the other seedling it's a lot smaller only the cotyledon leaf is showing so far thanx, everyone.
