I just purchased 10 Iranian Auto Flower beans from Dr Greenthumb. Fast shipping and great packaging, also came with planting instructions. I followed the instructions by soaking the seed for 4-8 hours in water, but then instead of placing it in a paper towel i planted it directly in soil that sat in a pot on a heat mat. A few days later to my surprise i find yesterday a small seedling starting to grow. I plan on keeping frequent updates on progress, its a autoflower strain and will vegg for 40-45 days. going to find out what light cycle to use to flower with.
