Seeds obtained from OSC seeds.
Seeds soaked in lukewarm water for 24 hours.
Seeds placed in moist paper towel and stored in plastic sandwich bag and placed inside refrigerator to stratify for ~ 4 and a half months.
Stratification end date: May - June
|tinytreez||From January 11, 2020 to January 16, 2020||Seeds germinated
I planted a few seeds in my coco mix (perlite, kelpmeal, bloodmeal, basalt powder, fulvic/humic acid powder, and mycorrhizae)
after a few days the seeds finally germinated, I know this quickly, because I always sow some extra seeds on the surface to see if they will crack open before they break the soil. I then moved those cracked seeds to their own individual pots and left them alone to grow.
Hopefully I have good genetics propagating.
