Hey folks, and thanks for reading.
I have an interesting issue, I recently purchased 5 Feminized Ak-47 seeds from Robert and ran into a peculiar problem... started 3 at first along side 6 seeds from another proveyor in which were two different strains 3/3. so all 6 of the other seeds popped, and grew the tap root and were planted no problem... but mt AK-47 seeds cracked and then in the span of 12 days did absolutely nothing else. I was using the paper towel method, with plate at a 45° angle, covered with additional upside down plate and heated with a thermostat heat mat at 69° and Kangen water at 6.4ph. I've been using this method the better part of the past 10 years, and never had this many fail in a row. I started this morning the final 2 seeds two different methods... one will use paper towel method again but bought a brand new ph tester and heat mat just in case, the other is soaking in 6.5 water with a slight amount of 3% peroxide and will be soaked then directly planted into pot. Does anyone have any other ideas on what I can do to try to get the original 3 to grow or make sure these final 2 do. Or have experience with these seeds and any particular advice of what they have learned dealing with this particular issue, or if they have seen it with other seeds. Or any advice once I do get them to start how to make sure they thrive in the beginning.
