I’m one of those that always uses jiffy pellets despite what kind of seed I’m attempting to germinate.
Personally I have no need to use anything else .
The key to using jiffy pellets is to have bottom heat from a heat mat while they are in a plastic tray with a clear cover.
You MUST check on their moisture level several times a day as they dry out extremely quickly.
The bottom heat ensures that they don’t remain wet on a constant basis which promotes disease and mold issues.
I had a Northern Lights seed germinate in 30 hours this time while the remainder took another 24 hours.
It’s the easiest, and in my opinion the best way to germinate cannabis.
