From the manufacturer
We share your passion for plants - that's how we got our start, and that's what keeps driving us forward.
Over 40 years ago, an inspired group of scientists, engineers and technicians came together with an ambitious goal: to advance agricultural quality and innovation through the use of key manufacturing processes and cutting-edge research.
They succeeded. But it was only the beginning.
In launching General Hydroponics, that team created a foundation that's allowed us to expand in meaningful and industry-changing directions. We now have state-of-the-art facilities in North America and Europe where researchers develop products, solutions and systems that help you care for your plants.
Our Santa Rosa, Calif., factory features large on-site grow facilities that use alternative energy sources and green technologies to save water and power.
We offer advanced systems powered by solar energy, as well as filtration products that make the most of organic components and nutrient formulations. With manufacturing and research, we continually develop products that enhance your results.

Stop using paper towels. The investment to do it right is minimal compared to everything else you've spent to set up your grow.
I've had a 100% germination rate using these plugs with the Jump Start CK64050, Germination Station w/Heat Mat and that is with every strain I have tried. First wet the plug and add water to the germination station. Put the seed in the plug, don't push it down deep just open the hole a little and drop it in. Plug in the heat mat (weed tends to like warm root zones), and put the humidity dome on. After that you can just ignore it for 3 days. I say ignore it because you'll go insane if you keep checking on it. The first 2 or 3 days it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Wait for it. On the 3rd or 4th day the magic happens. The seed opens, and unfolds and goes from seed to sprout with starter leaves in the course of just one day. Then a day or two later it's ready to be planted (I use soil, but I think you can put this in a hydro system as well). You NEVER have to touch the seed again or the roots, so you never accidentally damage anything in the transplant, which is a risk people take using the paper towel method. If you're growing good strains, the last thing you need is to damage the plant at the start of its life cycle.
Sometimes the plant gets confused as to which way down is, and the root grows up. It's happened to me maybe 4 times. But don't try to fix it yourself. It'll figure it out on its own and bury itself back into the plug.
Now obviously I'm not planting 50 cannabis seeds at a time, it's only legal for me to have 6. This product only comes in packs of 50 and that scares some people away. But I've tried other brands that come in smaller quantities and meh, rapid rooter beats them all. Open the bag from the top where the ziplock is. Don't just rip it open. Take out how many plugs you need, ziplock the bag shut, then stick it in a tupperware and they'll stay moist.
I turn the Rapid Rooter plugs upside down and slice (with a very sharp kitchen knife) a 1/4 inch cut in the plug. Then pull the cut open a bit and drop a seed into the cut. When the lettuce seedling is large enough I move the plug from my indoor grow closet to my greenhouse NFT hydroponic system.
By turning the plug upside down it becomes stable enough to stand on its own in the hydroponic system. No net pot necessary.
The nice thing about these is they are pre-fortified with general hydroponics flora micro nutrients. I like to soak these in a 1/4 strength solution of flora bloom and it has always worked in the past for seedling!

I would recommend this product to anyone looking to germinate their seeds quickly and healthy.
I actually have a few with buds already. They are a few inches tall, and ready to bloom!
These Rapid Rooter plugs have totally changed my garden game, and they are going to save me thousands of dollars in buying roses and other perennials.
The neighbors are going to be very, very jealous.
