Hello guys!!! New to auto flowers. Anyone having trouble germinating BBK AF. Iv tried to pop 9 of 20. Not one has sprouted. Anyone else experiencing this. Iv tried, water soak, peat pods and paper towel.
You try a water peroxide soak yet?
I haven’t just yet. I was going to make that my next move. What’s a good ratio for this?
1/2 cap full then top the rest with water if you’re using a shot glass
How long have you been soaking the beans?
I soaked 5 for 36 hours. Some sank some floated. No germinated. They are in peat pods now. Going to dig them out and try the peroxide
Sounds Like you’re doing everything right! Some seeds are duds??? I have started hundreds of seeds the ONLY one with 0% germ rate was Bruce B.auto ?Sometimes it’s out of your control:angry: .keep trying good luck and god bless. Welcome to the best online family!!!
Update: Dug the seeds up from peat pods that sat fit a week. 1 of 5 started to crack. I’m wondering if these beans need the rare two weeks. Thoughts?
I tried the peroxide soak and had no luck. So now I soak 18 to 24 hours. Then place damp toilet paper with seeds in a 1 gallon zip lock bag for 24 to 48 hours.
Plant in soil and then dome them till the leaves touch the sides. Then I take the dome off. This is done in my completely dark bathroom.
