I mean a lot of things work for seeds. Doesn’t make it right or wrong. If it works for you it works for you. We normally do crazy shit all for science anyway so let us know how it works lol.
I’d go for on top and not in it. I find too warm and some mold or fungus proliferates and eats them.
Try it out if you can and let us know how it goes. One of the things I enjoy most about cultivating cannabis is experimenting and learning new things. Bro Science becomes real science when you apply the scientific method and report your findings. somethings work and some don’t but you will never know unless you try.
It’s your weekend. Paper towel plate water. But look man this is your life ! Rock that insta pot! I love the fucking holy shit outta mine for popping beans too. The pinto variety ha ha

I don’t grow autos. I’m sure your right and he is a compete fool to even doubt you. I think…
The yellow margins on the leaves are a mutation called variegation, these sections are lacking chlorophyll and are unrelated to…
I’ve found that not trimming is better overall but I like to pluck leaves that are directly over bud sites.
Using an Instant Pot to germinate cannabis seeds
Kitchen tools have been modified, evolving over the years to make some of the most difficult cooking tasks just a little bit easier. You no longer have to knead your own bread or stand over a painstakingly hot oven while stirring a slow cooking stew or chili because we’ve got innovative new tools that can do all of the hard work for us.
The latest trendy kitchen tool is the Instant Pot, a device that can cook a whole chicken breast dinner in under 20 minutes with less than half of the dirty dishes you’d make doing things the old-fashioned way. It’s been a hit with personal chefs everywhere, but few realize that it has greater potential outside of everyday meal prep.
How it works
The Instant Pot is great at cooking just about anything you’d normally make in an oven or on the stove, and it turns out that it’s also the perfect tool for cannabis growers who want an edge in the process of germination. This is because the device is capable of reaching the ideal temperatures for tropical plant species seeds to flourish. Of course, it only works in the right setting because cooking marijuana seeds would render them useless, but with the help of a medium, an Instant Pot, makes a perfect germination pod.
Why you might want to try it
You might be a bit wary of locking your cannabis seeds away in a tool that you used to properly cook last night’s dinner, but there are many reasons why this method is a great choice for both beginners and experienced cultivators alike.
The temperature and humidity maintained in the Instant Pot are perfect, so you don’t have to worry about your seeds drying out, and it will also make them more likely to sprout.
The environment inside of the Instant Pot can speed up the process of germination by anywhere from 1-5 days
Step by step instructions
Are you convinced yet? If so, then it’s important that you do things the right way, otherwise, you could wreck a whole pack of cannabis seeds in minutes accidentally. To guide you, we’ve included a helpful list of step-by-step instructions, all of which should result in germination success.
- 1 Ziploc bag or Tupperware container
- 1 Instant pot
- 1-15 cannabis seeds
- Paper towel
Open the Ziploc bag or container wide and then slide a thin paper towel that’s
been folded inside, ensuring that it can comfortably close by folding the excess hanging bits inwards.
Use a misting bottle to dampen the paper towel, and then spread your cannabis seeds evenly across the sheet.
Add another double layer of paper towel followed by enough water to hold everything in place without having it dripping over the edges or out of the bag/container.
Close but do not seal the Ziploc baggie/container and then set it in the middle of the Instant Pot basket.
Shut the lid, and then set the Instant Pot to the yogurt setting which should maintain a nice 33°C.
Leave the marijuana seeds to germinate overnight, and by morning you should have nice, healthy sprouts beginning to show.
This method always works in 24 hours or less, so if you go beyond that length of time, then your seeds might not be suitable for growing.
