    Naw, germinate in the rooter plug OR paper towel. Honestly, it's a weed...just relax and go with it.

      My husband acts like they are nuggets of gold!! Hahaha... I've lost 2 BBkush Autos. Still got 1 in there. Can you use the rooters for outdoor grows?

      The rooters can be used regardless of where the plant will be grown. Rapid Rooter style plugs are the best. Several brands make them, like Viagrow for instance.

      Yeah, I recommend the root plug, not jiffy pellets. As HB just said, the germination argument never ends, haha. It sounds silly but when I just stopped stressing so much about germination is when I started to have good luck.

    Have you checked out the website growweedeasy.com? In my opinion it is the Bible for us who grow our own. Almost any answer you can imagine can be found there. It's awesome and will make you a better grower.

    I'm with SBL. Do one or the other. Don't get us all started on the thousand ways to germinate argument. Try them both and see which one works best "for you" as we all have different methods we swear by that work best for each of us, while others, including myself, are challenged when using other methods.

      If you do a rooter plug, wait until there are lots of roots popping out before you transplant. Then it will blow up with growth. I am a paper towel challenged individual. My success rate with paper towels is good, but not great. Plugs or straight into coc...  more

    I like to sprinkle a little granular mychorrizi with my beans using the paper towel method.

    Never heard of that peroxide being used. Interesting. It must super charge the bean with oxygen.

      @SBL - Well, for those seeds, there is an additional step. For extremely old seeds (10-80yrs old) thr big trick in maximizing germ rates is to soak them in water with between 10-20% over the counter peroxide for at least 15 minutes and no longer than an h...  more

      The part that got cut off below
      Guys - Keep in mind that this method should only be used on seeds over 10 years old. Seeds withing the first 3 years should not require Peroxide or GA. Over 3-4 year old seeds, the Peroxide is a good measure to improve succ...  more

    I am not sure about the peroxide thing, but i use rock wool cubes for germination and have no need for it. I know some growers do use peroxide with good success. I will say that when you find a germination method that works well for you to stick to it and perfect it. If you can't germinate you sure can't grow weed, lol. My method works great for me, but others may not find it working very well for them, and another method may work better for them. I try and use the simplest method that involves not touching the seed but one time....when it is placed in the rock wool cube. This ups my success rate because i am not very good at handling the seeds with a root sticking out in a paper towel. I always screw up somehow. Good luck. Peace
