Looking closely at a cannabis seed, you’ll notice that it’s more or less oval-shaped, with one end that’s pointy, from which the primary “taproot” will emerge, and the other end with a small “crater”, known as the crown. When germinating seeds using a starter plug, jiffy, rockwool or direct soil planting, there’s a fair amount of confusion and conflicting information around how to plant the seed. The debate generally centers around “pointy side up or down”. Some people get so confused about which way is up that they just plant seeds on their side and let each seed decide for itself how to grow, while others pay little attention to seed orientation.

In nature, wild cannabis seeds surely have an innate intelligence that gives them the best chance of survival. So, logic tells us that the pointy, taproot end should dig itself in and end up facing down. But the other side of the argument says that the crown end is heavier, and so it ends up facing down, with the pointy end directed upward. The taproot then emerges from the point and will habitually curve downwards. So, according to this argument, you should plant your seed pointy side up into your preferred growing medium, in order to prevent it from having to spend extra energy on creating a second, downward-oriented curve. However, many experienced growers will disagree and tell you to simply plant seeds pointing down. With that said, truthfully, chances are good that your seed (assuming it’s of reliable quality) will germinate and develop adequately regardless of which direction you choose. This is because seeds have an instinctive ability, whichever way you plant them, to determine which way is up and which way is down, and their taproots will figure this out and grow accordingly.

the seed will grow down, if you wanna listen to me OP then good if not then your in for a WHOLE LOT OF TROUBLE. But hey do whatever you want, or listen to the so-called elite with more posts hahahah,

jesus christ just cause im new to the forums dont mean shit ok grumpy, has it ever occured to you that someone might have more experience than you, post count dont mean shit ok buddy, and im not trying to start an argument, aint worth my time,

Wow,and I thought I was grumpy. I stated facts. I never said squat about post count, which if you look through other posts of mine, you will see I say the same thing.Post count means nothing, but quality and accuracy does. Get your panties out of a bunch, and go smoke a bowl or something. I know there are others more experienced than myself, and you for that matter. But hey, if you want to think that you have done, seen, and know it all, then that’s cool, but if your going to say that your way is the only way, then get ready for a shit storm around this place.
