Germinating Seeds In Paper Towels: A Quick and Easy Way to Start Seeds Without Soil

There’s a faster, easier way to germinate seeds, and it doesn’t involve pots, trays, or even soil or seed starting mix. The trick? Using the baggie method to sprout your seeds more efficiently so you can save space at home, test their germination rate, and find out which seeds are still viable and worth planting. Here’s how to germinate seeds in paper towels (or coffee filters or newsprint—any of these common household items will work).

What if I told you there was a faster way to germinate all your seeds, without the need for seed starting mix, perlite, or vermiculite; without wrangling a bunch of seed starting trays, flats, and domes; and without any special equipment like heating mats, temperature sensors, and indoor seed starting systems?

The secret is as low-tech as you can get, and relies on only two things you likely already have in your kitchen: paper towels and Ziploc bags.

This seed starting trick is sometimes known as the baggie method, and it works with paper towels, coffee filters, or even just newsprint.

But first, you might be wondering… why start seeds with the baggie method instead of just starting them in soil? Keep reading; I’ve got all your answers below.

3 reasons you should use paper towels or coffee filters for seed germination

Now why would you want to germinate seeds in paper towels or coffee filters first, rather than germinating seeds indoors in seed starting mix?

1. It’s a good way to gauge if your seeds are viable to begin with, before you put them in pots.

Maybe you aren’t sure how old your seeds are (especially if the seeds were saved from your own plants).

Or, maybe you bought your seeds from a new seed catalog and want to check how healthy or accurate their germination rates are. (See the next section below on how to do a quick and simple germination test.)

2. You can start a lot more seeds this way and use only a minimum of space while they get going.

Germinating seeds in paper towels is very small-space friendly. You don’t need a bunch of trays or pots, a seed-starting shelving unit or even a wall of south-facing windows to make it happen. (Just a windowsill will do.)

Plus, the baggie method helps you pick out the fastest and most vigorous seeds to plant because you can actually see them germinate (a process that’s pretty mysterious to most of us since it happens underground).

3. Many seeds germinate much quicker in paper towels (versus seeds that are started in soil).

The heat, moisture, and controlled conditions inside a plastic baggie help them germinate in only a few days (or less, depending on the seed).

How to test germination with the baggie method

Every once in a while, especially if your seeds are about to reach their expiry date, it’s a good idea to do a germination test and find out if the seeds are still worth planting.

Try this quick germination test when you’re unsure about your seeds

  • Count out 10 random seeds from the packet you want to test.
  • Follow the instructions below to germinate the seeds in a paper towel or coffee filter, and label the baggie with the date you started them.
  • Look on the seed packet or in any seed catalog for the expected number of days to germination for the seeds you’re testing. Wait that number of days, then count how many seeds have sprouted in that time.

If 8 out of 10 seeds germinated, that gives an 80 percent germination rate, which is pretty good for most vegetables. If only 4 out of 10 seeds germinated, then you have a 40 percent germination rate and the seed is, for all intents and purposes, useless.

When I find old seeds like this, I’ll throw them in the compost pile or feed them to my chickens. I might play around and put them in a random “salad blend” to sprout on my kitchen table, but I won’t bother planting them in the garden as a primary crop.

It is not wise to sow the seeds more thickly to make up for low germination. Weak seeds that struggle to even sprout will just result in weak plants that are likely to suffer from aphid infestations, fungal diseases, or other problems anyway.

But notice how I said primary crop: Older seeds that are borderline expired are actually useful in the garden as a secondary planting. I broadcast these seeds over my garden beds and let them grow in as a living mulch. I harvest (or cut them back) periodically to keep the plants low to the ground, but find they’re highly beneficial for suppressing weeds and improving soil tilth.

(In fact, this is one of the methods I teach in my online course, Lazy Gardening Academy, that mimics natural systems and helps your garden become more self-sustaining.)

What types of seeds can be germinated with paper towels?

All vegetable, herb, and flower seeds can be germinated in a paper towel or coffee filter, but personally, I find the baggie method to be most effective for seeds that take a long time to germinate.

Certain seeds that need a warm start (like chile peppers) are stubborn, taking up to three weeks to germinate. They need juuust the right conditions present before they sprout: the perfect balance of heat, moisture, and time.

In most seed starting scenarios, one or two of these requirements are usually lacking, which delays germination.

The baggie method speeds up the process by providing these conditions consistently with minimal effort on your part.

You can also germinate tomato seeds in paper towels or coffee filters, as well as cucumber, squash, muskmelon, and watermelon seeds.

Can you germinate kale, cabbage, broccoli, onion, or turnip seeds with the baggie method? Sure you can.

But cool-season seeds like these aren’t as finicky about heat, and seeds from the brassica family germinate quickly on their own anyway (usually within a couple days).

The baggie method isn’t necessary unless you want to test their germination rates; you can start them more easily just by sowing the seeds directly in the ground.

The same can be said for flower seeds. While you can sprout them in paper towels or coffee filters first, germination speed isn’t that important for flowers the way it is for vegetable seeds.

How to germinate seeds in paper towels or coffee filters

Step 1: Gather your supplies.

  • Paper towels, coffee filters, or newsprint (use whatever you have around the house)
  • Ziploc (resealable zip-top) bags
  • Seeds

I personally like to use coffee filters because the paper has a denser weave, which keeps the roots from growing into the fibers and making them difficult to separate when you’re ready to plant.

Depending on how many seeds you want to germinate at a time, cut the coffee filters as needed. (I cut mine in half to fit inside standard sandwich baggies.)

Step 2: Moisten the coffee filters.

Wet the coffee filters and wring them out, so the paper is damp but not drowning in water.

Step 3: Place your seeds on the coffee filter.

Place your seeds on the bottom half of the paper, leaving an inch between seeds to give their roots room to grow. Fold the top half over the seeds to sandwich them.

Step 4: Place the coffee filter inside a baggie.

Slide the coffee filter (with seeds) inside the baggie.

I like to blow air into the bags using a straw and then seal them tight to speed up germination. You can also leave your bags flat, but the air creates more of a greenhouse effect (which is especially helpful for chile peppers and other heat-loving seeds).

Step 5: Wait for the magic of germination to happen.

Place your baggies in a warm area of the house. For me, that’s a south-facing window, but you can leave them anywhere with a decent amount of heat and humidity, such as a bathroom or laundry room.

Just don’t keep them too hot (like on top of a heating pad), as you risk cooking the seeds before they ever sprout.

You can see the greenhouse effect created by the baggies here, which aids in germination. Because of this, you shouldn’t have to re-moisten the coffee filters while waiting for the seeds to germinate.

Within a few short days, you should see your first sign of life—a radicle emerging from the seed coat. This is the primary root and develops from the embryo of the plant.

Step 6: Transplant the germinated seed.

Once the radicle reaches an inch or two in length, carefully transplant the germinated seed in potting mix, burying only the radicle (the white part) and keeping the stem and seed coat above the soil line.

Handle the seed by its seed coat, as the radicle is very delicate (as well as the life line of your soon-to-be seedling).

Don’t try to remove the seed coat before transplanting; it’ll fall off on its own when the first leaves (cotyledons) start to unfurl.

If any part of it is enmeshed in the paper, cut around the root and plant the whole thing in a pot, paper and all. The roots will grow around the paper and the paper will eventually disintegrate.

I try to transplant the seed as soon as it’s germinated so it doesn’t rot inside the baggie.

Sometimes you can wait until the first leaves appear if you need a guide as to how deep to bury the stem, but definitely keep an eye on the moisture level inside the baggie and provide plenty of ventilation at this stage.

After you’ve transplanted all your seedlings in small pots, keep the potting mix evenly moist with good airflow around the plants to prevent damping off disease.

You’ll need to harden them off for a few weeks before moving them outside, but once the seedlings develop their second set of leaves (the true leaves), they’re ready for their final place in the garden.

Troubleshooting: why are my seeds not germinating?

Sometimes the paper towel trick doesn’t work, or you run out of patience waiting for seeds to sprout. Here are a few reasons why your seeds aren’t germinating despite your best efforts:

  • The paper towel is too wet: Seeds swimming in water may rot before they sprout, especially if they require a longer germination period.
  • The paper towel is too dry: Seeds need consistent moisture to germinate, and you may need to mist the paper towel periodically to keep them moist.
  • Seeds need more exposure to sun: Certain seeds require light to germinate, so if your baggies are tucked away in a room that sees little light, try moving them closer to a window.
  • Seeds are too old: All seeds have an expected shelf life, and that shelf life diminishes under certain conditions. Use this seed life expectancy chart to find out how long your seeds should last.

How to germinate cannabis seeds using paper towel method.

Now, let’s get those seeds popping with the paper towel method.

1. Fold the paper towels and place neatly on to the plate.
2. Add water to moisten the towel.
3. Place the seeds neatly onto the towel, leaving an inch or so space between each one.
4. Now, place the other paper towel over the seeds, adding enough water to keep everything moist.
5. Make sure there’s no free standing water by lifting up the paper towel.
6. Put the plate into a warm, dark place — a cupboard or a drawer will suffice.
7. Leave the seeds for 24 to 48 hours until they have popped the taproots.
8. Once the seeds have a healthy taproot, they are ready for planting.

How to Pre-Sprout Seeds for Faster Germination

Wondering whether your garden seeds will sprout? You can eliminate some of the wait time by germinating seeds before they are planted. Learn how to germinate seeds in a paper towel with this tutorial.

One of the most frustrating things about starting vegetables from seeds is waiting for them to emerge from the soil. Germinating seeds in a paper towel is a great method for the impatient gardener, because it lets you see your seeds sprout before they are covered with soil.

I had pepper seeds that were several years old. I hated to throw the package away without checking to see if they were still good. I checked the viability of the seeds by doing a seed germination test using a damp paper towel in baggies.

About half the old seeds sprouted, a 50% germination rate, and the rest were duds. I planted the sprouted seeds and watched the seedlings carefully to see if they would grow. I didn’t expect much from them, but they did grow into healthy transplants that were eventually planted into the garden.

After experiencing how easy it was to see which seeds germinated using paper towels, I decided to pre-sprout more of my indoor vegetable seeds. Now, I routinely germinate tomato seeds, peppers, eggplants, Swiss chard, cabbage, melons, cucumber, broccoli, squash, cilantro, spinach, and kale on damp paper towels before planting.

How to Germinate a Seed

The seeds of all plants are dormant or inactive until the conditions are right for their germination. A seed begins germinating once it is exposed to warmth and moisture.

First, the seed absorbs moisture and oxygen, which triggers the embryo to wake up. Next, it begins to swell as it breaks down the seed coat, absorbs larger amounts of water and oxygen, and sprouts roots or radicle, followed by the shoot that forms into the stem and foliage.

Benefits of Pre-Sprouting Seeds

Normally, you sow a seed into a growing medium, such as damp seed starting mix or peat pots. You plant the seed, cover with soil, water, place in a warm spot, and wait for the seed to sprout and break through the soil surface.

The paper towel method of starting seeds lets you germinate the seeds first, and then you can place the sprouted seed with the root into a seedling container to grow. You can see the seed and don’t have to wonder if it is doing anything under the soil. Other advantages of pre-sprouting your seeds include:

  • Saves money: Instead of throwing away older seed packages, you can germinate seeds in paper towels to see if some of the old seeds are still viable.
  • Conserves space: You don’t have to sow a whole tray of seeds hoping that at least half will germinate. Instead, you sprout the seeds in a small container, and only plant the ones that germinate. You don’t even need a seedling heat mat.
  • Saves time waiting for seeds to sprout: Pre-sprouting accelerates germination because the seeds can be given ideal moisture, air, and temperature conditions indoors.
  • Excludes the bad seeds: You only plant the seeds that geminate. Simply throw away the duds.
  • Eliminates the need to thin out seedlings: With pre-sprouting, there is no need to toss three or four seeds into a pot and hope at least one will germinate only to have all four seeds sprout forcing you to thin out the extras.

How to Germinate Seeds in a Paper Towel

Pre-sprouting seeds is a method used to germinate seeds on a damp paper towel before they are planted. It is a great gardening hack that speeds up germination by providing the seeds with perfect moisture, air, and temperature conditions indoors.

It may be helpful to review this article on 10 Steps to Starting Seedling Indoors to get your seed starting area setup, and then follow the steps to pre germinate your seeds:

Materials needed:

  • Containers or plastic bags: Any container or zipper bag will work. My favorites to use for pre-sprouting are the plastic see through mini muffin bakery containers or egg cartons. These are divided into small cells that are ideal for organizing and labeling individual seeds. The cover can be snapped closed to keep in moisture. Since the containers are clear, you can check on the seeds without opening the cover.
  • Paper towels: A damp paper towel will help deliver consistent moisture to your seeds without drowning them. Too much moisture will cause your seeds to mold or rot. Coffee filters can also be used, but they are not as absorbent as paper towels, so you’ll need to check the moisture level more frequently.
  • Water resistant labeling material: I cut strips of white duct tape.
  • Permanent marker: Sharpies work well and will not wash away if splashed with water.
  • Spray bottle: A spray bottle filled with water is the easiest way to moisten the paper towels without soaking them.
  • Seeds of choice: Larger seeds seem to work best. Try pre-germinating tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, Swiss chard, melons, cucumber, squash, cilantro, spinach, and cole crops.

Directions for Germinating Seeds

Before you begin, get your growing containers prepared for planting. Make up several seedling trays or small pots of moist seed starting mix ahead of time so you will be ready to transfer seeds when they sprout.

Step 1: Line your container with a paper towel

I like several layers of paper towels to keep the seeds damp, so I fold them in thirds and cut to fit. If you are using plastic bags, fold and cut your paper towels to fit.

Step 2: Label your containers

Use a water-resistant marker to label your containers or bags.

Step 3: Dampen your paper towels

Spray the paper towels with your spray bottle. You are aiming for the paper towels to be damp, not dripping. If you notice the water pooled in your container, the moisture level will be too high. Dump out the extra.

Step 4: Add your seeds

Spread your seeds on top of the damp paper towel. If you are using containers, simply close the cover. If you are using plastic bags, fold the paper towel over the seeds and place in the bag.

Step 5: Place the seeds in a warm area

Locate your seed containers in a warm area out of direct sunlight and away from drafts, such as near a heater, or on top of the refrigerator. Moderate heat will help your seeds germinate quicker. Room temperature or up to 75 degrees F is average for most seeds. Choose an area where the containers will not be knocked over or forgotten.

Step 6: Check the seeds daily

Examine your seeds each day for germination and to make sure the towel stays damp. Spray the towel if needed.

Step 7: Planting germinated seeds

Some seeds will sprout quicker than others. As soon as a seed shows tiny roots it is ready to plant. Carefully transfer seeds to your prepared seedling containers using a toothpick or tweezers.

Place the sprouted seed on top of your growing medium, cover with dry seedling mix, mist with the spray bottle, and place under the growing lights.

Be very careful not to damage the root. If you do, the sprout will die. If the root has grown into the paper towel, snip around it and plant paper towel and all. Also, don’t remove the seed coat before transplanting, it will come off on its own when the first leaves, also called cotyledons start to unfurl.

Step 8: Keep your seedlings warm and moist

Use your spray bottle to keep the soil surface moist, allow for good airflow, and continue caring for your seedlings as described from step 5 on in this article: 10 Steps to Starting Seedlings Indoors.

Germinating seeds with damp paper towels is a great gardening hack that speeds up sprouting by providing the seeds with ideal environment. Plus you can see the seeds germinate and not have to wonder what is happening under the soil.

How to Grow Yolo Wonder L Sweet Pepper from Seed

Pepper seeds thrive in pots and containers and can perennially overwinter in warm enough regions. Pepper is a heat-loving crop and does not perform well in shade or cold soils. Sweet banana pepper seeds are best if started indoors 4-6 weeks prior to final spring frost. Sow 2-3 pepper seeds 1/4″ deep per cell or peat pot in fertile, organic, and well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8.

Sweet banana pepper seeds germinate in 7-21 days, transplanting strongest starts 12-18″ apart in the garden or 1 plant per container. Pepper plants thrive in pots and containers with a phosphorus-rich potting mix and will benefit from staking and support as they become top-heavy during fruiting. Fruit may be picked early to ripen indoors or left to ripen on the vine. Using a knife or shears, carefully snip off peppers while leaving some stem attached to the fruit.

Yolo Wonder L Sweet Pepper in the Vegetable Garden

Pepper is one of the most diverse, showy, and flavorful fruits grown in the annual garden bed. Available in nearly every possible color and shape from the super sweet to super spicy, pepper grows stronger and tastes better with a season of full sun and high heat. Pepper plants thrive in pots and containers and can even perennially overwinter in warm enough regions, maturing into bushy, vibrant, and well-stemmed patio favorites.

It’s best to start Yolo Wonder Sweet peppers indoors for a longer growing season. Transplant when temperatures are above 75 °F. Peppers will start as green and then turn red. After 75 days, you should be able to harvest red and juicy peppers. Be sure to look out for cutworms and aphids

Harvesting Yolo Wonder L Sweet Peppers

Some sweet and bell peppers can be harvested as soon as 60-70 days, but most hot varieties are ready about 100 days from sowing or when skin has changed color. Know the individual variety you are sowing to know when color has reached ripeness. Peppers can be picked early to ripen indoors or left to ripen and change color on the vine. Using a knife or shears, carefully snip off peppers while leaving some stem attached to the fruit. If working with hot peppers, wear gloves to avoid skin contact with capsaicin.

Bright yellow fruits are sweet, crunchy and about 4-6″ long.

Many folks eat them right out of the garden, but they are delicious pickled as well. Banana peppers get sweeter as they ripen.

Growing Guide
GROWING NOTES
Pepper should be started indoor approximately 8 weeks prior to the last frost of the spring.

Sow ¼" deep in a well-drained starting medium. Seeds require lots of warm to germinate; medium should be between 80-85 degrees F. Using a heat mat, available at home and garden store and elsewhere, can help to ensure ideal conditions. Additionally, young starts will fare much better with additional light. Place in a window or sunny location that receives lots of southern or southwestern sun exposure. Consider supplementing with artificial lighting if possible.

Set plants out 2 to 3 weeks after average last frost when the soil has warmed and the weather has settled. Peppers can be temperamental when it comes to setting fruit if temperatures are too hot or too cool. Nighttime temperatures below 60 F or above 75 F can reduce fruit set.

Plant them 12 to 24 inches apart, in rows 24 to 36 inches apart, or spaced about 14 to 16 inches apart in raised beds. Do not rush to transplant your starts outdoors. Select a location that receives plenty of light and heat, and has not been used for tomatoes, potatoes or other members of this family for several years. Peppers will do best with soil that is fertile, lightweight, slightly acidic (pH5.5-7.0) and well-drained.

Wait until soil temperatures exceed 50 degrees F at all times before placing into the ground. Pepper plants should be fairly close to one another, so that there is slight contact between plants.

MAINTAINING
Peppers need a steady supply of water for best performance. If fertilizing, be careful not to overdo it on nitrogen as this can deter fruit growth. Organic fertilizers and soil should be rich in phosphorus, potassium and calcium.

Mulching with black plastic or similar material is a good way to maintain heat and soil moisture. Additionally, floating row covers over your beds can help to protect against cold early in the growing season. Use caution with row covers not to overheat plants and cause them to drop their blossoms.

Stake tall varieties for earlier and heavier harvest.

Heirloom seeds are the gardeners choice for seed-saving from year-to-year. Learning to save seeds is easy and fun with these books. Before you harvest, consider which varieties you might want to save seeds from so that your harvesting practice includes plants chosen for seed saving. Be sure to check out our newest seed packs, available now from Heirloom Organics.

Yolo Berry JEF Brand Strain Review

the grower who produced this did a terrible job. The cure is completely fucked.

Cant grade this cannabis because the quality is so low there is no way this is a fair shake to the strain or breeder. No disrespect!

The smell

This particular bud had no smell and more of a plant hay smell when you smelled the jar.

Has a berry smell when ground.

The verdict

This seems like a promising cross but quality was piss poor.

Last time trimed some other weed from this producer and while it wasnt super loud once smoked the effects were good.

Buy this weed if you are a total newbie with low tolerance but avoid like the plague if you are an experienced used.

Simply put this shit sucks , sure it wA 25 bucks but even the sungrown cannabis should be grown properly.

No excuse to give the people a crap prpduct which is easily outdone by almost ANY backyard grower.

What Is Diverticulitis? Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention

Diverticulitis is a form of colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease; it can be serious and require surgery if it isn’t caught quickly and treated.

The condition happens when small pouchlike structures called diverticula form in the digestive tract (when in this location, they're called diverticulosis) and become infected or inflamed, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease (NIDDK). (2)

Signs and Symptoms of Diverticulitis

While diverticulosis doesn’t present symptoms, there are clear warning signs of diverticulitis, per the NIDDK: (3)

    or tenderness
  • Change in bowel habits
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Diarrhea

Although some of these symptoms overlap with other gastrointestinal problems, including peptic ulcers and irritable bowel syndrome, consult your doctor if you have any of these symptoms and the risk factors apply to you, notes the NIDDK. (3)

What Does Diverticulitis Pain Feel Like?

The most common symptom of diverticulitis is a sharp pain in the lower left abdomen. This corresponds to the location of the sigmoid colon. The condition can also cause pain in the lower right abdomen.

Diverticulitis pain can come on suddenly and severely, or it may increase in severity over a period of days. It can also fluctuate in intensity.

Ultimately, the degree of pain you experience from a flare-up of diverticulitis depends on the severity of your infection and whether it has spread to other areas of your body, notes the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS). (4)

Advanced Symptoms of Diverticulitis

If you experience any of these advanced symptoms, this may be an indication that a diverticulitis complication has developed: (4)

  • Fever over 100 degrees F (38 degrees C)
  • Worsening or severe abdominal pain
  • Inability to tolerate fluids

If you have any of these symptoms, get in touch with your doctor as soon as possible.

Common Questions & Answers

Causes and Risk Factors of Diverticulitis

Diverticula form when the inner soft-tissue layer of the intestine passes through the outer muscular layer, forming a pocket or pouchlike and marble-sized bulge. This happens most often where the muscles of the intestine are weakest, particularly in the sigmoid colon. (2)

It’s unclear why diverticula form, but the Mayo Clinic notes that they’re linked with these facors: (5)

Being Obese Having a body mass index of 30 or over means you’re obese.

Eating Too Much Red Meat There’s no rule about how much red meat is too much, but generally, dietitians recommend opting for leaner sources of meat (like fish, turkey, and boneless, skinless chicken) when possible, according to Harvard Health Publishing. (6)

Not Exercising Regularly Aim for 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise (such as brisk walking) each week, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (7)

Why Diverticula Progress to Diverticulitis

Doctors and researchers aren’t certain what causes diverticula to become inflamed or infected, but they have identified several possible causes.

Is It Gas Pain or Something More Serious?

The most widely accepted theory is that increased pressure in the colon, caused by constipation or other digestive problems, can lead to tears in the wall of a diverticulum. Bacteria or hard fecal material present in the intestine can then become lodged in the diverticulum, causing inflammation and infection. (5)

Can Eating Nuts and Seeds Increase Your Risk for Diverticulitis?

This theory explains why, for decades, doctors advised people with diverticulosis (the presence of diverticula) not to eat nuts, seeds, or popcorn, which they believed could block the openings of the diverticula and lead to flare-ups of diverticulitis.

But the Mayo Clinic points out that research has never proved that eating these foods increases the risk of developing diverticulitis, so doctors no longer warn their patients away from such foods. (8)

Nondietary Risk Factors Linked With Diverticulitis

These factors may increase the likelihood of developing diverticulitis: (3)

  • Aging
  • Decreased levels of serotonin in the brain
  • Genetics
  • Obesity
  • Lack of exercise

Several drugs are associated with an increased risk of diverticulitis: (5)

  • Steroids
  • Opiates

Can a Low-Fiber Diet Cause Diverticula to Form?

Research suggests that the link between eating a low-fiber diet and an increased risk for diverticulitis is simply that — a link without a causal relationship, at least for now.

Scientists long believed that not eating enough fiber could increase the risk of diverticulosis, but research suggests that’s not necessarily the case. (9)

That said, a high-fiber diet is one of the main treatments for diverticulitis (more on this later).

Article

Why Is Fiber Important in Digestive Health?

How Is Diverticulitis Diagnosed?

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of diverticulitis, the Mayo Clinic notes that your doctor will likely take the following actions: (10)

  • Gather information about your full medical history, including preexisting conditions and risk factors.
  • Examine your abdomen to check for tenderness.
  • Perform a rectal exam to check for rectal bleeding.
  • Perform a blood test to check your white blood cells and determine if you have an infection.
  • Order a diagnostic test to get a picture of your colon and determine if diverticula are present and whether they are inflamed or infected.

These are the most common tests used to diagnose diverticulitis: (10)

CT Scan A CT scan uses both X-rays and computer technology to create three-dimensional images of your colon. It's the test most commonly used to confirm a diagnosis of diverticulitis.

Abdominal X-Ray During this test, your doctor will use imaging of your abdomen to diagnose diverticulitis.

Barium Enema A barium enema is another type of X-ray exam in which a liquid containing the element barium is injected into the colon, where it coats the lining of the intestines and allows for a clear image to be captured.

Colonoscopy During a colonoscopy, a long flexible tube is inserted into the rectum with a video camera at its tip. The camera allows doctors to view the inside of the colon and determine if diverticula are present in the colon, and whether they are inflamed or infected.

Ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Ultrasounds and MRIs can also be used in the diagnosis of diverticulitis, although they are less common due to cost.

Prognosis of Diverticulitis

While some people with diverticulitis will require surgery, many can be treated at home. However, if you experience increasing pain, fever, or an inability to tolerate fluids, you may need to be hospitalized, as these symptoms may indicate that complications from diverticulitis have developed. (4)

Your doctor may recommend hospitalization if you have the following characteristics or symptoms: (11)

Fantasy Sports, Trading Platform Beryllium Raises $3 Million In Pre-Series A Funding

Amay Makhija is the founder of Beryllium, a fantasy sports and trading platform that recently . [+] secured $3 million of pre-Series A funding.

In February, Amay Makhija sent an email to Paul Martino, general partner and co-founder of Bullpen Capital, a San Francisco venture capital firm that has invested in more than 100 companies since 2010. Makhija, an entrepreneur who lives in Singapore, knew that Bullpen was an early investor in FanDuel, a fantasy sports pioneer, but he had never met Martino.

Still, Makhija wanted to connect with Martino to discuss Beryllium, a fantasy sports and trading platform focused on cricket in India that Makhija had founded two years ago. To Makhija’s surprise, Martino responded to the request and took time to speak with Makhija for about an hour. That was the first of many conversations between the men and the start of what they hope will be a successful partnership.

Today, Beryllium is announcing that it has secured $3 million of funding in a pre-Series A round led by Bullpen. Other investors in the round include Genting Ventures of Singapore and Velo Partners of the United Kingdom. Beryllium raised $600,000 in a seed round in November 2019 and was judicious when it came to seeking additional funding.

“We have been very careful about the investors we’ve brought in,” Makhija said. “In today’s venture capital market, there’s a lot of cash that’s floating around, but the most important factor for us was having strong investors that we believe are going to be great partners and mentors for us and help me navigate the sector.”

Makhija had first thought about launching Beryllium in 2017 when he was working for L2 Inc., a digital consulting company. Makhija, who earned his undergraduate degree from New York University’s business school in 2016, saw that fantasy sports and retail trading of stocks were becoming more popular in the U.S. He thought they would get bigger in Asia, as well.

Two companies in India, in particular, caught his attention: Zerodha, a trading platform, and Dream11, a fantasy sports platform. Two years ago, Makhija left L2 and founded Beryllium with the goal of creating an app where people could play fantasy sports and also participate in a trading environment based on players’ performances. Each player is assigned a value, which can increase or decrease depending on how they perform.

“I felt there was an opportunity to look at the market differently,” Makhija said. “I felt in trading you had this extremely engaged, long-term user base that was almost never going to drop off once they started trading. On the other hand, you had fantasy sports, which has enormous scale but it’s always been a difficult proposition to keep users engaged for a long time.”

He added: “My idea was how do we take the mechanics we see in trading with this long-term behavior and bring it to something that has a lot of scale, a lot of excitement, a lot of emotive connection, which is fantasy sports.”

Last year, Beryllium launched its first game, called Sixer, which focuses on cricket and is available only in India. So far, Sixer has more than 150,000 users, according to Makhija. Sixer offers both free games and contests for money.

Beryllium plans on adding other sports, starting with tennis later this year. It will continue to only be available in India for now but could expand to additional countries in the coming years.

“We have a long-term vision of being a multi-sport, multi-regional product,” Makhija said.

Beryllium plans on using proceeds from its latest funding round to continue to improve the app and user experience and add to its staff. The company now has 13 full-time employees but expects to hire 10 more people in the coming months.

Martino, the co-founder of Bullpen Capital, said he was attracted to Beryllium in large part because of the data the company shared and Bullpen verified on how long Sixer’s users remain on the app and how often they come back. He envisions the same thing happening with other sports, as well.

“We see the mechanics that Amay has figured out could be broadly applicable to both team sports and individual sports across the world,” Martino said. “The engagement numbers they have by crossing (daily fantasy sports) with trading was unlike anything we had seen.”

Can fruit seeds and undigested plant residuals cause acute appendicitis

To investigate the relation between fruit seeds, plants residuals and appendicitis.

Methods

Among cases that underwent appendectomy, the appendicitis cases having fruit seeds and undigested plant residuals in their etiology were examined retrospectively. Also, histopathological features, age, sex, and parameters of morbidity and mortality were used.

Results

Fruit seed was found in one case (0.05%) with presence of pus in appendix lumen, undigested plant residuals in 7 cases (0.35%). It was determined that there were appendix inflammation in 2 of the plant residuals cases, while there were obstruction and lymphoid hyperplasia in the appendix lumen of 5 cases. No mortality was observed.

Conclusions

The ratio of acute appendicitis caused by plants is minimal among all appendectomised patients, but avoidence of eating undigested fruit seeds and chewing plants well may help to prevent appendicitis.

1. Introduction

The acute appendicitis observed in almost 7% of population is an acute illness of the Appendix vermiformis. It is the most common disease which requires emergent surgery. The obstruction of appendix lumen is the main cause of appendicitis. Basically fecalith, lymphoid hyperplasia, seeds of fruits and vegetables, barium obturator, and tumors of large intestine and appendix can be found as etiology of acute appendicitis. In our study, the cases with presence of undigested plant residuals and fruit seeds in the appendix lumen were studied and were discussed together with the literature data[1]–[5].

2. Materials and methods

Our study is a retrospective clinical study. The specimen removed from the patients operated under general anesthesia with the diagnosis of acute appendicitis was put into sterilized bottles with 10% formal-saline solution and was sent to pathology laboratory. Cases with presence of undigested plant residuals and fruit seeds in their etiology were involved in our study according to the result of pathological examination. The relation between age, sex, histopathological features and mortality of the studied cases were discussed.

3. Results

Among 1 969 cases diagnosed as acute appendicitis that underwent appendectomy between 2002 and 2009, 8 cases with presence of undigested plant residuals and fruit seeds were studied (0.4%, 8/1 969) with female/male ratio of 7/1. Their average age was 39 and all showed similar main complaints and examination findings as other acute appendicitis.

All 8 cases were discharged from hospital without any complication. Confirmed by histopathological examination, undigested plant residuals and fruit seeds were found in 7 and 1 cases, respectively ( Figure 1 and ​ and2). 2 ). There was pus in appendix lumen of the fruit seed case. Appendix inflammation was presented in 2 cases having undigested plant residuals in lumen, but not in other 5 cases. However, lumen obstruction and lymphoid hyperplasia were determined in these 5 cases. 7 out of the 8 patients underwent appendectomy during autumn and winter months, and (fruit seed case) in June.

4. Discussion

Generally speaking, the relation between appendix base and cecum do not change, but tip of appendix can be in different directions. The positions relative to the direction of appendix can be as follows: retrocecal, pelvic, sub-cecal, ileocecal and right pericolic[6].

Appendicitis is more common in males with a ratio of male/female of 1.4/1. It was estimated that 8.6% of men and 6.7% of women develop acute appendicitis in their lifelong. Young age is a risk factor, and nearly 70% of appendicitis cases are under 30. Appendix can be infiltrated by materials such as fecal material, microbes and parasites. Because most of these materials are on the streamlines, they can enter into organ lumen without leading to any symptoms. However, this can cause inflammation such as appendicitis. When appendicular mucosa continues fluid secretion, the internal pressure of lumen in obstructed appendix increases, and the increased pressure on appendix wall can lead to mucosal ischemia by exceeding the capillary pressure. Bacterial reproduction and translocation in internal lumen sticks to all wall layers of appendix, and leads to inflammation, edema and necrosis. The typical clinical process begins with intermittent stomachache like cramps thought to be caused by the blockage of appendicular lumen. Pain can be partially or extensively around navel, and can be difficult to localize. Typically, this is followed by nausea, but nausea can also not be presented. When inflammation becomes transmural and causes pyogenesis in peritoneum covering right lower quadrant, the character of pain would be changed and the obtuse colic pain would be replaced by constant and severe pain[1],[3],[7]–[10].

95% of the substances which are taken orally but not digested pass through the digestive system without any problem. More heavier substances, on the other hand, locate in the lower part of cecum and can easily enter appendix lumen. Because the peristaltic activity of appendix is not able to discharge this substance into cecum, the accumulation of foreign bodies can lead to obstruction of the lumen, and therefore lead to inflammation. The foreign bodies leading to appendicitis can be listed as follows; metal needles, shot particles swallowed by eating the animals meat, tooth stick, tooth fills, as well as fruit seeds. Some of the fruit seeds swallowed are removed from the body naturally, while some of them can be the cause of appendicitis. There are reported cases of appendicitis which are caused by seeds of vegetables and fruits such as cocao, orange, melon, barley, oat, fig, grape, date, cumin, and nut[11]–[14].

Materials in the appendix lumen (e.g. fecalith) do not cause inflammation of the appendix all the time but these may cause acute abdominal pain that mimics acute appendicitis and this patients are required to undergo appendectomy for acute appendicitis. So in appendectomy series the range of fecalith in noninflamed appendix is 20%-30%[15],[16].

In the series which Byard and his colleagues published in 1988, it was reported that among 1 409 appendectomy materials, fruit seed was observed only in one of the cases.(1/1 409, 0.07%)[17].

In one study, fruit seed was found in 1 among 1 969 appendectomy materials (1/1 969, 0.05%). 34 fruit seed cases were reported by others[18].

Since the fruit seeds in appendix are very rare, relevant publications are generally submitted to literature as case reports. The appendicitis cases with fruit seeds included in this study were similar to that reported by Byard et al. We consider that those 34 fruit seed subjects in literature do not reflect the facts due to the publishing criteria of the journals as well as the difficulties in scanning articles of the journals, and lack of indexing. Moreover, though appendectomy is the most common general surgical operation and can be performed in all hospitals, yet no publications related to the series are available in hospitals.

Phytobezoar develops through the combination of plant substances which are not digested in the gastrointestinal system[19]–[21].

Since undigested plant wastes are observed in the lumen of appendectomy material, they can be called as ‘microphytobezoar’. It was reported that phytobezoars consisting Trabzon palm or citrus led to intestinal obstruction[22]–[25].

Most of the people eat fruit seeds and plant residuals do not develop appendicitis generally. Ratio of acute appendicitis caused by plants is minimal in all appendectomised patients. Nevertheless, we would like to suggest undigested fruit seeds shouldn’t be eaten and plants be chewed well. We think that clinically and laboratory training must be performed in this area[26].

5 best seeds for Minecraft jungle temples

Jungle temples are among the many structures in Minecraft that have valuable loot for a gamer to find.

Of course, jungle temples in Minecraft are only found within jungle biomes. While they feature redstone traps that a player must navigate through, they are usually well worth the journey thanks to the loot within the structure.

Many Minecraft players purposely input specific seeds when generating a new world in order to reap the various benefits from a certain seed’s natural generation. This article features a collection of great Minecraft seeds for those in search of great spots for jungle temples.

5 awesome Minecraft seeds for jungle temples

#5 – Two temples, two villages

MinecraftSeedsEveryday on YouTube is a great source of incredible Minecraft seeds of all kinds, and they have discovered this awesome jungle temple seed.

This seed spawns players in a huge jungle biome. In it, gamers will find two different jungle temples, one of them being right near the spawn point, the other being directly next to a village. There is even another village not too far from that one.

Not only is the terrain beautiful in this seed, there is also a large amount of loot waiting to be collected between the two temples and the two villages. The coordinates of these great structures are featured in the video above.

#4 – Stronghold jungle temple

This is yet another seed found by MinecraftSeedsEveryday with some incredible world generation.

In this seed, there is a village and ruined portal not too far from spawn where players can start off with some great loot. Then, after traveling a bit farther, gamers will find a massive jungle biome that bleeds into a dark oak biome with yet another village.

However, these awesome features are not even the best part of this seed.

Within the jungle biome is a jungle temple, and almost directly underneath it is a stronghold. Not only is it the stronghold right there, but the end portal room itself is the closest part of the stronghold to the jungle temple.

This lucky seed was found on Minecraft Java Edition 1.16.5.

#3 – Almost Oasis

Discovered by mooing_cowmilk on YouTube, this seed has a rare and lucky spawn: right next to a jungle temple. The temple itself is within a small but sizable jungle biome surrounded by nearly nothing but desert for hundreds, perhaps thousands of blocks in every direction.

This wild world generation makes for some breathtaking visuals and is perfect for players who are eager to attempt a survival world with little salvation. Those who wish to take on the challenge of this seed in survival will have to utilize the jungle biome and its temple as their main source of materials.

This seed should work on Minecraft versions 1.13 and beyond, with the exception of 1.15 as the temple seemingly does not spawn with that update.

#2 – Temple Island

This seed discovered by BIGnoob on YouTube will spawn players on or near an incredible, secluded jungle biome island. Not only are there two jungle temples within the island, there is also a ruined portal and a shipwreck in the nearby ocean, all of which with amazing loot.

The video above showcases the coordinates of where to find these awesome places. Given the seclusion of the island, some very interesting lore regarding these abandoned structures can be integrated into a world with this seed implemented.

#1 – Lucky Loot

Coords: -1353 78 -3513

This seed was discovered by Reddit user Toktopuss on the newest version of Minecraft 1.17.1. This user felt inclined to share this discovery after stumbling upon what is perhaps the rarest find in a jungle temple loot chest ever.

The jungle temple on this seed provides players with incredibly valuable items, including six diamonds, three emeralds, and iron horse armor.

What’s more, there are also at least two other jungle temples to be discovered within the very biome that this one was found.

Shirley Temple Peony

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Find Your Planting Zone:

32-36″ tall x 24-36″ wide. A profusion of loosely-packed petals fills the blousy blooms of ‘Shirley Temple’ making her the star of the early summer garden. Peonies are a classic component of cottage-style plantings and perennial borders. Bold and vibrant foliage provides a shift in color through the seasons and structure when not in bloom. Peony flowers are beloved by pollinators. Expect bees and butterflies to visit. Delightfully fragrant, the flowers stand atop strong stems and are excellent for cutting. Low maintenance and virtually pest free, peonies are resistant to deer and rabbit browsing. Blooms stand up to heavy rains. Peonies can live up to 100 years, choose a sunny place where you can leave ‘Shirley Temple’ to flourish for years to come. Peonies do not need dividing.

Growing Peonies: If you live where peonies grow, its the same every year in late spring. Certain homes have them in beds, borders, along drives–and anywhere they grow, they create probably the most beautiful clump of flowering of the whole season. Big, usually fluffy flowers in glossy green foliage.

Perennial peonies are what experienced gardeners call investment plants. They’re some of the most permanent landscaping you can buy. In fact, many continue blooming beautifully for over 100 years. Once they’re established, they’re as hardy and dependable as oaks, creating a fantastic season of bloom in your yard year after year.

Planting Peonies Adding peonies to your garden is not difficult. All you need is full sun and good soil. (In even partial shade, the bloom will be scant or non-existent–keep them out in the sun!) As most gardeners know, the roots look like a bunch of carrots–thick long tapering tuber-like masses that increase every year. Feed them, water them, and the clumps will expand rapidly, and more and more blooms will result.

Types of peonies: The standard perennial peony species is Paeonia lactiflora but within the species, there are thousands of hybrids old and new. And there are several flower types:
Single Peonies are the huge, wide-open ones with just one row of overlapping petals. Like huge poppies, they create dinnerplate-size beauty that’s really unmatched in the garden. The singles are less frequently seen in American gardens because of our passion for petals-people just prefer the doubles. One of the most famous singles is the breathtaking Krinkled White, an old classic and still a big favorite.
Japanese Peonies, not to be confused with Tree Peonies which often come from Japan, is a flower form somewhat similar to the singles, but with a more elaborate center. A great example is the big favorite, stunning Bowl of Beauty, with glistening cherry red petals petals plus fluffy yellow center, creating spectacular color contrast.
Semi-double Peonies are just that. They have the basic bottom row of large petals seen on the singles (often called the guard petals), but on top, there are more shorter petals, developing from the center. A great example is the beautiful red Edulis Superba.
Bomb Peonies are the ones with the guard petals flat and large, with a pile of petaling sitting upon them-sort of like a fluffly snowball sitting on a plate. Some of the most-loved and dramatic peonies are bombs including the magnificent Laura Dessert and the dramatic Raspberry Sundae As these two illustrate, there are bombs of various shapes and sizes. With Raspberry Sundae, the large bomb not only adds size and height, it gives the overall bloom a stunning palette of three colors-white guard petals, a collar of yellow, and then pastel pink making up the center. In Laura Dessert, the coloring is all white, with a hint of lemon yellow in the bomb.
Double Peonies are probably the most popular, and the most widely planted. Excellent examples are the famous Victorian introduction, Festiva Maxima with its snowy white flowers with red flecks, and Sarah Bernhardt, the all-time popular double pink with huge flowers and great fragrance. Other popular doubles are the red Karl Rosenfield and white Shirley Temple.

There’s really no end to a gardeners pleasure with peonies. They’re all good for cutting. The foliage stays glossy and green all summer long, and they attract almost no pests. (Don’t confuse the standard perennial peony with the Tree Peony, a separate group. Tree Peonies are more shrub like, and don’t die down completely each winter.)

colorful cannabis seeds us

Red Poison Auto

Red Poison Auto is included in the new range of automatic cannabis strains, and specifically within the range of The Red Family from Sweet Seeds. This new set of strains is characterized by plants that become in lilac and red colors in bloom, giving us colorful flowers and no less appealing.

Its parentals are the Green Poison feminized crossed with an automatic strain native of the Hindu Kush, in Pakistan, which gives the purple color (in a 80% of plants), and besides it shorten the flowering period and adds a little nuance and sweety tastes to the aroma.

The bearing of the Red Poison is the common in a hybrid plant, with a strong central stem and lateral branches that surround it in every direction, separated by a short internodal spacing. All this reinforced by a great hybrid vigor that will make it grow strong and fast.

In the flowering stage, we’ll have a plant with a large central tail surrounded by smaller compact satellite buds, but also fully covered with sweet and sticky resin.

The effect of this automatic strain of marijuana is basically Indica, relaxing and sweet. accompanied by fruity and sweet flavor and aroma, with a soft Skunk background.

THE JARS GUIDE TO COLORFUL BUDS

For pot pros and beginners alike, the psychoactive effects of THC are only one small aspect of the overall cannabis experience. Beyond the high, there’s the aroma, the flavor, the size of the buds, and perhaps most importantly, the colors.

From sparkly green flower and deep purple buds to strains dotted with bright red and orange hairs, cannabis buds reflect an entire rainbow of candy-colored hues. So what gives weed its vibrant colors, and what strains should you look for when hunting for that perfect purple bud? We have all the answers to your burning questions in the Jars Guide to Colorful Buds.

How Does Weed Get Its Color?

We’re about to get a little science-y on you but we promise it’s fun — this is weed science after all. So how does weed get its color? Well, it depends on what colors you’re talking about.

For our favorite green nugs, chlorophyll is the culprit, which you may remember from science class back in the day. This chemical compound that is found in nearly every plant is responsible for turning sunlight into energy for the plant. In other words, the same thing that makes your lawn green is the same thing that gives weed its traditional grassy hue.

When it comes to the more uncommon colors like red, purple, orange, and even black buds, the answer is a little more complex. Based on genetics and environmental factors like temperature and nutrition, the cannabis plant starts to produce pigments known as anthocyanins. While this word may sound like a bunch of gibberish, you’ve already seen these guys at work in fruits and vegetables like raspberries, cabbage, and eggplants — just like cannabis, anthocyanins give them their rich color too.

Smoke The Rainbow

Now that we have science out of the way, it’s time for the fun part: which buds are going to dazzle your smoking buddies with their colorful display. While each strain of cannabis is different, there are generally a number of strains you can count on for a colorful smoking experience.

Grandaddy Purp

Grandaddy Purple — otherwise known as GDP for short — has been a staple in California’s indica-heavy scene since the start of the early 2000s. Born from a cross between Purple Urkle and Big Bud, GDP is one of the weed world’s most notorious purple varieties, with a delicious dash of berry flavor to match its good-enough-to-eat purple coloring.

First introduced into the market by famous cultivator Ken Estes in the San Francisco Bay Area, Grandaddy Purple has set the bar for purple strains around the globe, with name drops by the likes of every hip-hop artist from Lil Wayne to G-Eazy. Needless to say, this purple bud is a fan favorite.

Forbidden Fruit

A blend of Cherry Pie and Tangie, Forbidden Fruit is a colorful strain that usually leaves people feeling relaxed yet euphoric and light. It gets its name from its drool-worthy tropical taste, with notes of mango and passionfruit, but long before you even discover the flavor, you’ll be enamored by its unforgettable appearance.

Color-wise, this near-perfect strain stands out from the pack with light green leaves that are layered on top of dark green leaves, all completely wrapped in a layer of fuzzy orange hair. Go one step further by breaking apart the nugs and you’ll be delighted with a display of pink undertones. All in all, one look at these buds and you’ll want to take a bite out of this Forbidden Fruit too.

The Black

A pure purple strain that can be traced back to both Canada and California in the wild wild west of pre-legalization times, The Black gets its heavy metal-inspired name from its dark coloring, with buds so richly purple that they’re often mistaken for black.

In addition to the Black’s dark and frosty appearance, its indica-dominant attributes will have you melting into your couch with a smile on your face. While it is a difficult strain to find, its reputation is unmatched in both color and effects.

Pink Kush

Rarely making an appearance as the main color, pink will often make show up on the little hairs found on nugs called stigma. While their color is subtle, it does make a big impact on certain strains like Pink Kush.

Sometimes called Pink OG, Pink Kush comes from the OG Kush lineage. In addition to its signature blush tone, it can also come in green or a mix of purple and green, with a slight pink shine tucked away inside the buds like a special surprise. Although these buds may sometimes appear to have very little actual pink on them, the full plant will grow with a stunning amount of beautiful pink stigma right before the buds are harvested.

Northern Lights

Resulting from a combination of Afghani and Thai strains, this cultivar is known for crystal-covered leaves that seem to twinkle like the night sky. The nugs are dusted with sparkly residue that makes this anxiety-reducing indica look like the cosmos — and may take your mind there too. It is known to send those enjoying it off into space and ready for a night of restful, pain-free sleep.

It also offers a spicy yet sweet flavor that makes it great for both at-home edibles and bong rips. While it may not be the brightest or the boldest on this list, its unique starry effect makes it sparkle just a bit brighter than the competition.

Final Words

While these are some of the most infamous colorful cannabis strains in the game, new strains continue to fight it out for the top spot every day. As we continue to dive deeper into the science of weed, we discover new ways to bring the plant’s color to life and onto our dispensary shelves. Pull up to Jars today and find what colorful buds we have for your smoking pleasure — we’re kinda like the pot of gold at the end of a weed rainbow.

Royal Queen Seeds

Royal Dwarf Auto

Introducing Royal Dwarf Auto Seeds.

Brought to you by Royal Queen Seeds

With a similar genetic background to our Easy Bud strain, but with the inclusion of a Skunk variety, Royal Dwarf is a short and stout autoflowering cultivar. This bonsai-like strain is easy and compact—just perfect for indoor growers and those looking to achieve multiple crops per season.

SMALLEST STRAIN “INDA HOUSE”

By combining potent Skunk genetics with a ruderalis variety, the hardiest, most compact strain known as Royal Dwarf churns out impressive yields for a plant of its stature. Reaching only 40–60cm in height, this feminized autoflowering variety isn’t only fast-flowering and the ideal size for a discreet guerilla grow, her intense aroma will remind you of the potency contained within her buds.

What are the Flavor and Effects of Dwarf Low Flyer Autoflower?

The Dwarf Low Flyer Autoflower marijuana strain’s mild scent is herbal, dank, and mildly sulfurous. Simultaneously, it adds some slight hints of fruits and root beer, resulting in a rather exciting palate action. The flavor, on the other side, is equally impressive. What else do you expect from such a strain that is a cross between two of the greatest autoflowering strains available? As a bonus, the Low Dwarf Autoflower strain’s taste and aroma will make you feel happy, comfortable, and euphoric all at once.

This lovely plant has a THC content of 10.85 percent, which is not as high as others. However, it appears that this is what separates this variety from the others. This strain also provides a perfect, smooth, and sweet buzz. It’s all about pure relaxation and pleasure, but there’s nothing too gentle or hardcore about it. As a result, if you’re looking for a smoke that will help you to relax while also allowing you to continue doing what you’re doing before, this is the smoke for you. As a result, it’s a decent option for both beginner and seasoned smokers looking for a moderate strain variety.

What are the Medical Benefits of Dwarf Low Flyer Autoflower?

The dwarf low flyer has plenty to give medical marijuana users; this strain develops toxins that are pleasant, calming, and analgesic-like, resulting in a stoned feeling. Patients suffering from sleep apnea, sclerosis, lupus, fibromyalgia, and sleep problems such as insomnia may benefit from this strain’s medicinal or therapeutic effects. It’s also good for muscle contractions that aren’t voluntary, pain tolerance, depression, appetite enhancement, anxiety, and sleep deprivation.

Negative Effects You Can Expect from Dwarf Low Flyer Autoflower

The Dwarf Low Flyer has a naughty side as well. She can cause some people’s mouths and eyes to dry out as she performs her calming effects. She comes out showcasing her charm, which makes some people dizzy. She could even make sure people feel more nervous or paranoid for whatever reason. Such side effects are typically minor and do not cause concern. However, if consumers intake too much, they can become a nuisance.

How to Grow Dwarf Low Flyer Autoflower

The Dwarf Low Flyer Autoflower marijuana strain is simple to grow. It has a six-week flowering period, making it ideal for hydroponics and indoor environments with limited space. The plants can remain under two feet tall and bloom on their own between 12 and 18 hours of light a day. It’s also feminized, making it ideal for guerilla cultivation indoors. This strain is unquestionably suitable for both growers and consumers seeking variety. Overall, this strain is one of the fastest flowering strains accessible, making it a great choice if you need to get things done quickly.

Buddha Seeds

Buddha Seeds was created with the aim to thoroughly understand and explore the world of auto-flowering cannabis plants to have a better understanding of the best way to hybridize strains, always looking for excellence.

Following this premise, Buddha Seeds have worked hard to develop top quality automatic cannabis strains with excellent flavor and intense effect, with very nice yields and easy to grow.

This is how they have managed to make their own space at the top of the automatic seed bank ranking, earned thanks to the superior traits found and fixed in their automatic plants. Thus, they’re creators of Autos like Deimos and Magnum, which have become two references in the world of autoflowering cannabis.

Doubtless, Buddha Seeds stand out for the quality and reliability of their genetics, a fact that explains why they have become one of the most reputed producers of automatic cannabis strains.

are there any cannabis seed sites that take paypal

Seed banks that Take PayPal in 2021

You may have many qualms about ordering your marijuana seeds online, and one of these is choosing the payment method to use. Due to legality concerns, fraud, and shady merchants, checking out with a virtual cart full of marijuana seeds is a lot more complicated than it needs to be. However, there are already a lot of seed companies out there that already found ways on how to keep seed transactions secure and discreet for their customers. You can even use PayPal and your credit card to pay for your marijuana seeds purchases.

If you are looking for seed banks that take PayPal as payment for buying cannabis seeds online, then you might want to check on our list below.

List of Cannabis Seed Companies that Accept PayPal

Here are some of the seed banks that accept PayPal when you buy cannabis seeds online.

REMINDER : You cannot find PayPal as a payment option when you checkout. What you need to do is to place an order and choose any payment method except a credit card, then contact them through their live chat, email, or phone and tell them that you want to pay with PayPal. The customer service representative will then provide you with instructions on how to send your payment.

This is how it works as PayPal still don’t allow marijuana seeds transactions using their payment gateway. However, the seed banks have their way on how to get around it. It isn’t risky to your part. Just follow the instructions that the seed banks will provide you.

Crop King Seeds

Crop King Seeds is based in Canada and the USA. They ship their cannabis seeds to their customers from around the world. They carry over 500 marijuana strains with a few of which they breed themselves.

SunWest Genetics

Sun West Genetics is the first ever seed bank to use a seed tracker technology to make sure that their customers only get fresh and authentic cannabis seeds from the company. They ship cannabis seeds to their customers from around the world and they also accept PayPal for cannabis seeds purchases.

Sonoma Seeds

Sonoma Seeds is a marijuana breeder that sell their seeds on the internet. The seed bank pride themselves for having top-notch customer service and quality of cannabis seeds. They accept PayPal, credit cards and other payment methods.

MJ Seeds Canada

This seed bank has been around for a long time already. They are based in Canada and has been shipping their quality seeds to their customers from around the world. They take PayPal, credit card, Bitcoin, Cash in Mail, Email Money Transfer, and other payment methods.

Beaver Seeds

Beaver Seeds carry a few strains in their line up. What we like about this company is the fact that they accept PayPal. They are based in Canada and they do ship their seeds to anywhere in the world.

Benefits of Buying Marijuana Seeds with PayPal

PayPal is not perfect, but it is still an ideal payment channel for your marijuana seed purchases. Let’s take a look at the advantages of using PayPal when you buy marijuana seeds over the internet.

Flexible

PayPal is flexible because it gives you plenty of options for funding. Nearly all seed banks online process payments directly through credit cards, which is a real pain for the few (which may include you!) who either do not own credit cards or simply refuse to place their marijuana seed purchase on their plastic.

At present, PayPal allows you to load up your account using credit, debit, and check cards and a balance that you directly loaded into your account. You can do the last option by entering your deposit account information to your PayPal account.

If your bank account is successfully verified by PayPal, you can now use your funds directly to pay for your cannabis seeds via PayPal as the third party. This process takes a few days, though, so if you are rushing for a purchase and just setting up your PayPal account, you want to skip this option.

Secure Payment Option

If you use your PayPal account to buy marijuana seeds online, then you are covered by their guarantee that your purchase will be refunded if in case the merchant does not deliver as planned or the product itself is substandard.

Private

PayPal is a huge, respected brand that many consumers trust with their money and transactions. It is a given that PayPal protects these pieces of information and keeps all pertinent details private.

Once all your bank or card information is verified, PayPal stores the data securely in their system. You do not need to re-enter your details each time you log in. This means that you do not have to reveal your account information all the time, thereby keeping your data secure. PayPal also never gives client information that is not relevant to their purchase.

Therefore, in case the seed bank’s website or database gets hacked, your information will not be accessed by malicious hackers and bugs.

One more thing you can do with PayPal is making electronic purchases without them showing on your bank or credit card statement. There are many reasons you may want to conceal your cannabis seed order in addition to potential legal repercussions.

If you are using PayPal, you can simply transfer funds from your bank account and then pay for your marijuana seed purchase using the balance that your PayPal account just received from your bank account. This way, your bank account will show that you transferred a certain amount to PayPal but it will not say what you bought.

Mobile

You may not consider this too big of a deal, considering how almost everyone and everything nowadays is already mobile. PayPal has a mobile app, but unlike applications developed for other third-party payment processors, that by PayPal works smoothly and flawlessly.

Furthermore, much of the important functions you can do on their desktop site can also be done through their app. There will always be limitations, but those in the PayPal app are barely noticeable because the missing functionalities are not the ones you are most likely to use for your cannabis seed purchases.

Reliable

PayPal has been around for nearly 20 years. This company was the pioneer in its field and remains the undisputed industry leader. It was also founded by some of the brightest minds today (Does the name “Elon Musk” ring a bell?).

These guarantee that your account and its content are perfectly safe. You are not dealing with a fly-by-night organization that can possibly disappear one morning with half your savings account.

The best thing about PayPal is that it is free. You can do so much without spending a single cent. Its core functions, sending and receiving payments, are not the only ones that are free. You get security, protection, peace of mind, and security.

Discounts

This benefit may not be directly related to buying marijuana seeds online and paying using PayPal. However, this is nonetheless a key factor to consider when deciding over which payment processor to use.

From time to time, PayPal partners with a wide range of establishments and brands and offers promotions and discounts. You do not have to pay for this feature. All you have to do is have a PayPal account.

Disadvantages of Using PayPal to Buy Marijuana Seeds

There are two common downsides when you buy cannabis seeds with PayPal.

Not a lot of Seed Banks use It Yet

Currently, PayPal doesn’t allow seed transactions with their payment gateway. If they find out what you bought then you and the seed bank’s account might get banned. This is the reason why you should every instructions that the seed bank will provide you when you pay for seeds with PayPal.

PayPal Charges High Fees

Many seed banks who conduct business online are not very big companies. They understandably will have a hard time making a profit if their revenues are eaten up by commissions for third-party vendors.

Conclusion

Currently, there are only a few seed banks that take PayPal. However, that does not change the fact that this third-party payment channel is ideal for your online order for cannabis seeds. We only hope that PayPal reduces its commission rate in the future to allow more seed banks to partner with it. And that, they will accept cannabis seeds transactions now that more and more states and countries are making marijuana legal.

US based seed banks that take Paypal Venmo CC

Every seed bank I’ve checked is open, aside from Mephisto. Not many banks in the US take electronic payments. There are many threads with the same theme with more explanation. banking rules. marijuana federally illegal. account freezes/seizures.

I’d suggest not listing seed banks offering these payments on a publicly searchable forum or at least don’t be surprised when the payment methods dry up on those sites. Google crawls RIU and makes search results readily available.

Black Jack Auto Feminised Seeds

Black Jack Auto is another 3rd. generation auto-flowering strain and is the product of a union of S.A.D. (Sweet Afghan Delicious) Auto and Sweet Seeds’ own elite Jack Herer clone. Growers can expect very good yields of dense, resin-coated buds.

Black Jack Auto displays exceptional hybrid vigour exemplified by its very fast seed-to-harvest time of just nine weeks. It is a compact plant that grows between 40 – 110 cm. in height. This automatic plant can be grown almost anywhere although resin production will be better where there is a lot of sun. When grown indoors yields can be anywhere from 400 – 550 gr/m 2 which is a substantial harvest from an auto-flowering strain. Outdoors these plants are able to produce up to 250 gr. each although excellent conditions will be required to realise harvests of this magnitude.

The aroma and taste are very pungent and sweet with some notes of citrus and earthiness. THC levels are in the range 15 – 20% along with medium CBD rated at between 1 – 5%; this produces a very strong effect that is a very good balance between the indica and sativa characteristics with a nice, stimulating head high and a more relaxing physical side to it.
