Hey guys , new to forum, only made a post or two. Looking to see if anyone is having problems with germinating the lsd autoflower strain. For some reason i cannot get these things to pop. I have successfully germinated other autoflower strains from ilgm with 100 percent success rate so far. Only other strain i had problems with was 3 purple kush but was able to get the 4th one i tried to germinate. Anyways, just looking to see if anyone else was having problems with the lsd autoflower. Thanks for any replies.
I’ve not had experience with lsd auto, but have great luck germinating seeds in general. What method are you using to germinate your seeds? Maybe we can make some suggestions to improve your success.
Im currently growing an lsd auto. I didnt have any issues with germinating. What is your germinating process like?
I had some issues germinating but then started soaking my seeds in 1 part peroxide 3 parts water for a few hours and then planting directly into soil. Havent had an issue since.
I placed seed in a solo cup. Added the water. I placed cups on a temp controlled heat mat at 70 degrees. I also covered top of cup with coffee filter to keep warmth in, but would also release some air. Water ph is between 5.8 and 6.9 . These lsd are giving me hard time.
Okay maybe i need to try some peroxide. Havent changed any thing on the way i germinate. Just these lsd auto giving me a hell of a time. Thanks guys and or gals.
I would soak in distilled water in a warm spot and then wait up to 3 days for a tail to sprout and then in soil it goes.
How long are you waiting after dropping seeds in water?
Ive waited up to 3 days in water and no sprout, after that i tried them in rapid rooter plugs in a seed sprouting dome for a few days under heat mat.
I soak for 24-36 hours then wrapped in a wet paper towel in a zip lock bag. You’ll have a nice long tail to plant in 2 days
My germination process is this, small bowl with 70-75*F water 1 cup then I add about 2oz of 3% hydrogen peroxide and mix well, I take coffee filters 2 of them together and soak the filters in the water. I give ‘em a very light squeeze, I the. Place my seeds in the coffee filters fold it in half put it in a sealed ziplock bag and put it in my toolbox drawer on a heating pad on low with a towel between the heat pad and the ziplock.
These 2 went in to germinate 24 ish hours ago. And one has already popped, this thread reminded me to check in on them the peroxide adds an extra oxygen molecule which aids in the process. Good luck!!!
Here’s what I do, and it’s simple. Get some fox farm happy frog soil, and solo cups. Moisten the soil, and fill the solo cup. Plant the seed directly into the soil (not very deep), spray a little water on it to settle the seed, and stick a baggie over the top to make a little greenhouse. Keep it warm, and it should break ground in about 3 or 4 days. Works ever time for me.
Thank you, each and every one of you for giving me some ideas on how get these to germinate. Just started a ilgm bubble gum auto flower.It popped in less than 24 hours with my normal process ive been using. Will try these ideas out on the lsd auto. Will update when i get them to germinate.
