    Am I doing paper towel method wrong

    Well I certainly agree with you. I've grown for yrs just to do it cuz I love the plant but the best bud I've had as always come from home growers who've been doing it for 30 yrs + & they're parents grew too. I'm from Pa,the northeastern US & youd be surprised how much good bud is grown here...

    Am I doing paper towel method wrong

    I certainly dont trust ILGM & dont believe their seeds are viable. I do grows almost every yr.& always by seed. Granted this will be 3rd indoor grow ever but I always germinate the same way & almost all pop & survive. I get what u mean by times changing tho. Another new change I've made is using...

    Day 4 of germinating in water,help!

    I hear alot of ppl praise ILGM but to each their own. As I said before I'm novice grower but when it comes to germinating seeds I've germinated hundreds of the yrs. Early on I used to order from a place called seedboutique.com. They had great prices & selection & viable seeds. Same with Nirvana...

    Day 4 of germinating in water,help!

    5 days in the water? I think the longest ive ever left in water was 36hrs but that was just to crack seed. I let the paper towels finish the job for tap root. From what ive reah online alot of sites say 24-48 hrs or a week if seeds are really old. This last batch of replacement seeds I left on...

    Im not sure if size counts for much when it comes to seeds but the 1st seed ILGM sent me that didnt sprout were tiny. Also when I was readin on their forum about replacement policy I was seeing lot of ppl who said their seeds didnt sprout but were praising them for how good they were about...

    Day 4 of germinating in water,help!

    Thats what I thought too. When I spoke to customer support the 1st time when all seeds didnt sprout he told me I was doing germination method wrong & told me when I he sent replacement seeds to leave in cup for 3-4 days but it could also take a week. He also said most ppl believe this will kill...

I just received the new seeds yesterday & had them soaking in cup of warm water on germination pad. Id told my girlfriend about the...
