Not a newbie in seed germination. Bought 10 Blueberry autos and have only been able to germinate one, and that grow was a monumental fail because the seedling started poorly. I do believe that these seeds are viable but they resisted any normal method of germination, soak, direct to soil, and paper towel in saucer . Ive read that adding vinagar to the water will aid in germination of hard to sprout seeds, anyone heard this?
Not vinegar specifically.
Ive used a drop or two of peroxide when germ’n. Also slight seed skuffing is recommended with older seeds. Get some sand paper and a cup n shake the seed 15-20 secs before dropping. U want to see just barely white around the edges.
Haven’t heard of vinegar, but I do add a full capful of hydrogen peroxide to 3/4 cup of water. Soak 18-24 hours. Should have a tail by then.
Lately and not having issues with any seeds beside ones being males yuk. I do a double shot shot glass 3/4 filled ro water rest topped off with peroxide about a cap full or a bit more. Peroxide wont hurt the seed at all it will keep a sterile environment for the plant to grow i also like to put them in the water for 12 to 24 hrs then i dump yhe cup onto doubled up napkins fold paper towel over seeds and place the plate on a heating pad on high by next day i have atkeast 1/4 inch taps
The problem for me and seeds is that i have a 2x4x5 grow tent where I grow only for my own use. Im an older guy and have issues that cannabis helps. Not taking opiods if i can avoid them.
Because of my setup I decided to go to autos. Its been pretty successful. Ive grown 3 photos 1 J Herrer, and 2 JH clones. Very nice grow. Ive grown White Widow autos successfully. Tried Gold Leaf autos but this plant didnt live up to my expectaions. Now i have 3 seeds ill not use. 5 seeds 89.00.
Just havested 2 Blueberry autos and looking forward to trying them.
So here’s the problem. Since the smallest amount of seeds offered by ILGM is 5. Ive been pretty dumb about buying seeds. The better deals are the get buy 10 get 10. Even after research it may be hard to choose the right strain for my needs. So buying 10 seeds means that after growing 2 of ten, I didnot care for the effects. So I have 8 seeds ive no intention of using. Actually i have 14 seeds that i may never use.
That’s why im considering buying from another seed bank where i can buy smaller amounts.
I really like ILGM because they know how to grow.
Hmm might consider finding a buddy around u that u can trade the seeds with possibly for something along the lines u want. If for pain i keep mearing from @MrPeat g13 pabs peach puree cbd is da bomb diggity. Cures all pains it was put up to so far. I tried to order some but they denied payment of c.c. so im working on getting a darn money order to send them for some seeds. I cant wait to try that as i have alot of back and hip pains myself. U in the states somewhere or off overseas somewhere
