The start of any marijuana plant growth cycle is called germination, specifically referring to the period when a seed cracks and sprouts a seedling. This process is intentionally triggered to force cannabis seeds out of their dormant state and back into the normal growth life cycle. Germination rates average around 80%, which translates to eight out of ten seeds typically successfully germinating in most attempts.
