I am back, pfizer 'ed up and with a full body tan, pics not included, I promise.
So last year's attempt at germin' out some Cali-Haze beans was mostly a bust. I got 1 out of 6 to pop.
I called the cute lady at Crop King. She pointed out the error of my germinating ways. I promised to do it as per their instructions, and she replaced my seeds. Now I do not want other people to think this is par for the Crop King course. I appreciate her giving me a second chance, so here you go you lovely soul.
Just before I went to bed, May 15, 2021, I dropped my feminized beans into a saucer of mineral water. I soaked them for no more than 12 hours.
2 days later, May 17, 2021, my outdoor grow of 2021 looks like it is on. For sure...
Now 6 out of 7 beans are in a 12oz cup of Fox Farm Ocean Forest.
So, Crop King only stands by their germination technique. After that, I am on my own.
I f'ed up last year's grow by soaking the seeds in mineral water expecting them to pop open, but only one did, a week later.
Fem'd seed apparently don't not like this. 12 hour max in the water, then into folded, moistened paper towels inside of a plastic baggie. Two days later, glory hallelujah, those suckers are pushing out a root.
I should be seeing some sprouts in a few days.
Dipole has learned a new trick. Sweet. Get'n ready for Bates Beach.
