marijuana seed growing upside down

I ordered seeds from Attitude seed bank and got them within a frickin week!! Plus freebies. All 100% sprouted using the traditional soaking and paper towel method (from House of Seeds) http://www.greenhouseseeds.nl/shop/germination-instructions.html

What should I do? Any suggestions much appreciated.

So far so good but got this whacked one sending it’s tail strait up in the air (see pics). Then found this that said I did it all wrong. http://www.amsterdammarijuanaseeds.info/how-to-position-sow-cannabis-seeds-in-soil.html

I guess I got lucky cause some are still did what they were supposed to. Seeds are damn expensive.

First time poster. Thanks to all of posters for spreading the knowledge on how to grow the good herb!!

Most seedling plugs will go back into place easily, and you'll barely be able to tell it's been opened 🙂

12 hours after that, the leaves have completely emerged!

If you leave it alone, the seed will start to rise up, and open to reveal the seedling's cotyledons (first, round leaves)

As long as the tip of the root stays wet the seedling will be fine! The "root" is the same as what is going to become the stem. If it appears green it means that part of the root is already in "stem" mode and isn't sensitive to the light.

If your root is growing straight up like in the picture below, it's not good. This is most common in seedling plugs. The tender white root tip has a good chance of drying out or being exposed to too much light. You want to strongly consider doing some "plant surgery" to turn this little seedling around to the right direction 🙂

I’m no help. But something that stupid deserves to die and save the rest of the gene-pool.

For example you could tear a tiny piece off the edge of this Rapid Rooter and gently lay it on top. Or if you were in soil you could sprinkle a tiny bit of soil over the seedling. The seedling will push it off as it grows upward.

Now gently extract the seed from its original home with a pair of tweezers making sure to touch only the shell and not the root (the root is the most sensitive part)! Now lay the seedling in the middle of your newly split open Rapid Rooter and gently close the plug around it again.

When this happens the shell usually falls off on its own as the seedling grows!

i would like to thank everyone for the help & suggestions . what i decided to do was cut away the mesh , wash away the peat ,this freed the seedling witch i then planted with the root pointed down. this process seemed nice & gentile to me..here,s some pics . sun

Since your seedling has already sprouted and has been in placed into the right growing position, it'll probably pop its head out within just 12-24 hours! Sometimes you see just the leaves, but occasionally you actually see the seedling push the shell above ground.
