After a week of no sprouts, I examined the seeds and found little white worm like creatures. Any ideas what they are and how they may have gotten inside the seeds?
Tap root growing
I’m Sorry but this is the funniest post I’ve seen yet on the forums I think those would be your tap roots
Ack! Those are terrifying to see. The mythical white worms of marijuana do exist!!!
yes they are Ganga Worms that crawl into soil and…etc
Please dont break them off or try and smash them lol.
No guys haha Itried to upload the video but could not, I found out they are it was the larvae of a FUNGUS GNAT,look it up on you tube ,I see now it was funny
how are you germinating???
I first soak seeds in water for 24 hours or until they sink. I use wet paper towel stuffed into a clear glass. Then put seeds down along the side of glass with wet paper towels pressing against them and then put them in a dark warm area. I’ve had fairly good success with this method. I wait until tap root pops. I like doing it this way so I can see if they have popped without having to disturb them while waiting.
Thanks do you mean the paper towel is on top of the seeds?
Nope, I put paper towels in glass and wet them down. Then put seeds down against side of glass with towels pressing against them. I took pic of what I’m talking about just didn’t use a seed. Up to recently I’ve only had two out of 18 seeds not germinate this way. On my most recent grow I had 4 Strawberry Kush seeds in a row not germinate. But 4 seeds that were different strains did. The main reason I like doing it this way I can see when they pop without having to actually disturb them.
