Things have been a little rough, 2 seeds, a BBA and a GSCEA were dropped into soil as my preferred germination process. Those never amounted to anything, dug one up and it showed cracked open but dead tap, same with the other seed.
Dropped one of each in water to attempt the soaking method. Bean never sunk but it did seperate sprout from hull. I took sprout and put in in soil and placed on window sill. The GSCEA never sank or cracked open so I dropped a 2nd.
Those 2 were able to be planted and although they are “growing” I have my doubts they will survive so I dropped 2 more of each.
I can honestly say that the success rate on the BBA and GSCEA have been way below my expectation. 9 seeds started, 3 failed and 2 not so happy looking seedlings, this is not counting the failed BBA and GSCEA seeds from Spring grow that have already been replaced by ILGM.
I did the water and H202 soak, GCSEA never sank, bloated or cracked after 7 days. My success rate with WWA was damn near spotless dropping them straight into dirt. I still have 15 BBA to plant, let’s see how they go.
Boy, I tell ya what ( best Hank Hill voice)…these girls are really hell bent on testing my fortitude. Went out to trail ride and potentially sell one of my horses trained for trail riding. Ride was delayed by 45 minuts waitinf for storm to pass. The high winds had me concerned my cuos would get blown away and that’s all I could think about.
Horse sold, KA-CHING! Got home and saw my cups still on rail and was relieved. That was only short lived…where the cups were, the rain runs off the roof.
Cups were flioded and I thought I had lost the girls in all the dirt that was displaced… Carefully sifted remaining dirt and water to find both sprouts still in cups, although completely under water and dirt.
A replant was scheduled, happened a fewer days than expected.
If I got a seed, wouldn’t that mean my plant was pollinated…all my plants are autos or my one LSD Fem. Does that mean someone near me is also growing and had a male plant? Is this what they call “hermied”?
