    i soak my beans in ro water over night, place them into a wet paper towel inside a ziplock (so it doesn't dry out), then after about a day put them into soil. i will use super thrive @ 1/4 tsp per gallon once they have shed their helmets and started growing. no ferts for about a few weeks....hope this helps

    Thats alot of fuckin superthrive!!! Sparingly is the word that comes to mind when reading this thread. Nature has been germinating and growing cannabis seeds for millions of years without the help of Superthrive! In no way do I know more than you nor am I trying to be an asshole here, if it works for you dont fix it! Im just trying to say that if someone new to growing is looking for advice less is more when it comes to additives and young plants. You can literally stick your beans into wet seed starting soil (no fert) and have a pretty good germination rate. Hope this helps didnt mean to go on a rant there!

    no offense taken.....just what works for me. less is always more, take your time and figure out what works for you. i agree with starting sparingly and working up from there....
