Hey, I hear you with your seed popping struggles. I can only tell you my method to pop seeds if you can get any help from it great if not well there's always clones..
thanks for your informationHey, I hear you with your seed popping struggles. I can only tell you my method to pop seeds if you can get any help from it great if not well there's always clones..
I soak over night in Spring water. Then I use the water the seeds soak in to saturate then wring out paper towels to lay seed on...No standing water....towel on top wrung out and tapped onto the top of the seed. I keep in a small plastic container with a lid in a warm location...on top of my aquarium is perfect...2 days later I've sprouts.......I get close to 100% popping if they are viable seeds.
I saw a YT vid with some white coat expert talked about enzymes the seeds release that nourish the embryo when opening and sprouting. So I use like an oz+ of water to soak 1 seed then I use that water to soak the paper towel.........thanks for your information
That’s pretty expensive for autos ya? And the most expensive seeds are always the ones that don’t pop.ran about $40.00 per pack not counting shipping was really disappointed because they sounded like great auto's
really just planting them in soil from the start - this method has been used ever since the recording of time !!! Build-a- Soil has a product that you can soak them in before planting. Some use SuperThriveHave you tried just planting one in a little bit of soil? That seems to be the best an most reliable method in my experience.
never thought of adding soil in shot glass - used to use shot glass w/h20 never thought of adding soil ??? interesting == how is your germination rate ? guess it would be like using a "cuve_ (rockwell, ect) -Yeah super thrive is good stuff.
But yeah really that's how I do it, after playing around with all different ways I went back to that as I seem to get 100% germ rate doing so.
I just pla t in a shot glass of soil then once sprouted and I can see some roots I transplant into whatever medium I'm finishing in generally coco/perlite mix.
Just shot glass but the plastic ones that I drill a few holes in the bottom. Soak when I plant the seed then just water as it dries out.never thought of adding soil in shot glass - used to use shot glass w/h20 never thought of adding soil ??? interesting == how is your germination rate ? guess it would be like using a "cuve_ (rockwell, ect) -
