indoor bagseed grow

We certainly don’t want to discourage you from germinating bag seeds from your cannabis stash, but there are still some cautions you should account for. For example, even if you know the strain that the seed came from, you don’t know what caused the seed to be produced in the first place. If it was a male plant, it could pass on some of its traits resulting in an unknown phenotype. Whereas the bag it came from may have been an uplifting strain, its father could pass more lethargic traits to its offspring.

Generally, you can simply place your seed in some healthy soil or even rock wool cubes to start the germination process, but not being able to see your seeds sprout could leave you waiting indefinitely for it to never happen in the first place. To ensure your bag seeds sprout as easily as possible, we suggest soaking them in tap water for 24 hours prior to germination to encourage the breakdown of the nutritious seed shell.

Once you’ve amended your soil and secured a grow location, it’s time to sprout some seeds! Though many prefer procuring seeds from a seed bank to increase the likelihood of viability, bag seeds are definitely worth a go, but may not be as fruitful as store-bought seeds. Nevertheless, if you have a few marijuana bag seeds lying around, you should definitely try to sprout them. Here’s how.

How to Sprout Seeds from a Bag of Cannabis

After soaking the seed, simply place it on a damp paper towel under a warm (not hot) light. After a few days, you should see the seed begin to sprout a taproot. This indicates that it’s time to transfer the seedling into your grow medium where it can find more nutrients to flourish. Do so by gently placing the sprouted seed about ¾ to 1-inch deep in soil then cover it with more soil. Other grow mediums you can consider include rock wool, expanded clay, or peat moss, though these are primarily used for hydroponic grow systems.

We also suggest protecting your seedlings at this point because the slightest stress to their little bodies could kill them. Pests, pets, or simple carelessness could easily harm your seedlings so, until they are strong enough to withstand a little stress, enclose them in a plastic dome until they are at least a few inches tall. You can purchase plastic domes from your local nursery or grow shop or simply make some by cutting the top off a few 2-liter bottles and setting it on top of your babies. This will also help insulate your seedlings to minimize drastic temperature fluctuations.

In that same vein, if a bag of cannabis contains seeds, it could be due to stress of the mother plant. When a female cannabis plant gets stressed, her natural response is to produce seeds as a means of evolutionary survival. However, hermaphroditic females (female plants that contain seeds) also tend to produce hermaphroditic offspring. In other words, growing from bag seed can sometimes result in seedy weed, even when given the best grow conditions possible.

Grow Box:
just attaching images until i figure out how to direct link it from photobucket :/
added a picture from how the box looked at first lol.
Built my own little exhaust to stop light from filtering out front. (put it over the speaker hole)
Added a

I’m growing mostly natural, don’t wan’t to spend too much.

Edit: can’t post direct pictures? (from PhotoBucket)

Specs:
> Some bagseed from a Greenhouse grow (i think lol)
> Growing in an old speaker cabinet
> 2x 20 watt CFL lights
> 5 plants ATM, going to select the best growing and half it until on 1 (maybe 2)
> 3 PC fans (intake, regulating through the box, exhaust)
> Took some soil out my dads garden lol
> one plant is in potting soil

Hi all, i just decided to do my first grow, and was wondering if i should post it online :p
I have read a lot of information and still going, thoughts on the grow is greatly appreciated.

Grow week 1:
(germinated 9 out of 11 seeds :)) gave two away, growing 2 more outside :p
just attaching images until i figure out how to direct link it from photobucket :/
One plant has 3 leaves which is pretty weird right?

That said, you spend the same amount of effort and time to grow any weed plant, be it from bag seed or from a seed bank.

So how do you get around that?

What Kind Of Bag Seeds Are Best?

The advice to keep a close watch on your female plant(s) is doubly important for seeds from a bag, since they are much more likely to become hermaphrodites.

You can grow some great plants with bagseed. Plants that yield amazing weed.

A lot of people will tell you to take seeds from weed that is good. This is not bad advice, but you shouldn’t necessarily discount seeds from sub par weed.
