get a small container place paper towels in it spray with water place seeds on wet towels far apart 2" cover with towel and mist again put in a dark place keep moist in a few days they will sprout place a single sprout in a peat pot,unless your doing hydro.allow sprouts to grow in peat pots till they get larger to transplant intp a 6-8" pots theres a good book called the closet cultivator that will tell you everything you need to know,save your money the lights are pricey they make a nice single metal halide with reflector ballast all one unit and has the hooks for the chain so you can adjust the height.smell is going to be your biggest problem invest in an air cleaner,ionizer or lots of cover scents

Put them in the dirt and let them sprout.
thin them out as they grow and sex them accordingly
the most important thing is your photo period.
when the lights are off they stay off, no exceptions
and make sure the grow space is leak proof , even tiny slivers of light getting into your grow space can affect your photo period

If you can avoid using seeds ,that would be your best bet.It being summer,surely you must know someone with a few outdoor plants kicking.Grab a few cuttings,get some rooting powder and go,This will avoid the disappointment of growing males in such a limited space.Good luck,also i STRONGLY suggest getting yourself and ionizer.This will help with the smell.You must cover all angles when doing this in an apartment.Just saying a read all that once.
At least I'm still enjoying the ride !!!!!

outdoors is the way to go if you got some woods nearby (most likely to late now this year). Once its set up (which don't take much) you only have to visit once every week or 2. I havn't done it since high school but to this day I havn't had anything better, and it came from bag seeds out of whats known as "mids" "mid-grades" or "middies" around here. completly blew my mind how good the stuff was..... mids and shwag only suck because of the way its grown not cause of genetics, seeds that don't get crushed from either have the potential to grow some outstanding stuff! Everybody thinks you need to buy seeds or get some special strain but you don't. It might be a little better but its all in the way its grown. Save all your bag seeds from different batches and you have a killer crop of different strains - to hell with paying 50 bux for 10 seeds or any of that BS.
