How to grow Marijuana
How to get Michigan Medical Marijuana Seeds and Clones

Before you can grow medical marijuana, you need some marijuana seeds or clones to get you started. You can't get them from a pharmacy or the State of Michigan. Neither can sell them. There are several methods of obtaining them though, and we'll list some here. 

1. Online Seed Banks:

One method of obtaining seeds is to buy them through online seed banks. While you can get any variety of seed through the mail, there are problems with this approach. For one thing, it is illegal in the United States to send or receive marijuana seeds through the mail. It could expose you to criminal prosecution. Another problem is that there are few seed banks that don't have at least a few customer complaints. There are some seed banks that are purely in the business of ripping people off and there are new scams reported every day. Do some investigation into any seed seller before your send your money through the mail. I get my medical marijuana seeds from Amsterdam.

2. Seeds from stash:

Your own stash can provide seeds that are at least as good as whatever stash you had. In fact, if you're careful, those seeds can produce something much more potent than the herb you got them from. Because sensimilla is the art of growing female plants that are deprived of the seed producing process. The result is very potent buds - with no seeds!

3. Friends:

If you don't have any seeds in your stash, ask your friends. If you know very many marijuana smokers, somebody will probably have some decent ones. And someone may even be able to hook you up with a clone or 2.

4. Compassion Clubs:

If you're lucky enough to live in an area with a cannabis compassion club, then you can get seeds or clones from the clubs. These clubs are found in many places in Michiagn. In most cases, you will need your MMMP card in hand.

Seed Germination and Care:
Taken from the Seed Starting discussion on our blog.

First, the basics. Storage! Seeds need to be stored, because you're rarely going to plant them on the day you harvest or purchase them. You can store seeds for 2-5 years, depending on the strain. I've never heard of good luck germinating seeds that are over 5 years old.

Seeds should be stored in a cool, dry and dark environment. There's reason for everything. Since a seed is a living organism and cold slows down the life cycle, cold is good. Since seeds need moisture to grow, dry is good. Since light encourages growth, dark is good.

I use the freezer. OK - The debate is still out whether a refrigerator or freezer is a good place to keep seeds because of the relative humidity within. But if you take the proper precautions to keep moisture at bay, it's a non-issue.

I like the 35mm film containers. They're made to keep light out. And they're a nice size to shove into alcoves. My friend, John uses envelopes and swears by them. The envelope can actually draw moisture away from your seeds. So I have no argument there. Whatever you place your seeds in, make sure that light and air stays out. Also include some type of desiccant. Either some silica you rescued from a purchase, or just include a few grains of rice with the seeds to seep up any excess moisture.

I kinda look at it like the vegetable drawer in your refrigerator. There's a reason we keep vegetables in there - To lower their life cycle and keep them fresh! And that's what we're after with seed storage. We simply want to lower the life cycle so they're still vibrant when we go to sprouting.

Speaking of sprouting - I'm pretty sure that's what this thread was to be about. So on with the show!

Marijuana seeds, just like other seeds, require moisture, warmth and darkness for germination. Why darkness for both storage and germination? We'll get into that later.

Use distilled water to eliminate the risk of contaminants. I'm not even going to address the many things that could be contained in your city water supply or country well that could affect, not only the germination of your seeds, but your entire growing process as well.

For best results, place your seeds on a clean white paper towel placed on a dinner plate (or other suitable movable flat surface) with room temperature water. Cover with a soaked paper towel. I throw (however gently) my cannabis seeds in a kitchen cupboard.

Seeds germinate best at 65-80 degrees F. Check them every 12 hours. As soon as you notice the seed has swollen and cracked open to expose the white root, get it planted. Do not continue soaking after the white, initial roots are visible at the crack in the seed casings. Pot seeds are ready to plant as soon as they split. Soaking marijuana seeds until the roots are exposed can result in stressful, early root damage.

You may have to experiment a bit with your seeds. Some strains will not germinate at room temperature, but will require 90 degrees to do so. I've been known to set a plate on top of a lamp to coax some seeds open.

But once they do crack, get them in some good PH balanced medium. I won't go into growing here because we'll cover that in another topic.

Soil Choice and Preparation:
Pot likes loose loam and a PH of 6.5. More information will be provided here as we continue to update this site.

The Growth Cycle:
Light - and lots of it! Not sure if we'll include both indoor and outdoor growing here. But we'll make that decision soon.

Harvest and Curing:
Don't pick too soon. We'll expand on that as we update.
