Hi Guys, I bought 5x Jack Herer Autoflower seeds 29 March 2019 from ILGM, I successfully grew 2 from June-September. With lockdown coming I thought its the perfect time to grow the remaining seeds. I followed the same germination steps for 2 seeds that worked with my first grow which was placing the seeds in room temp filtered water in a dark room for 24 hours, then transferred to a moist paper towel folded and left in the darkened room. After 48 hours there was still no tap root. I left them another 2 days and still nothing. One seed opened but no little white tail showed with my last remaining seed and my last hope I tried placing it just in the water for 48 hours without transferring it to paper towel and still there is nothing. The seeds were stored in a zip lock bag in a dry dark storage unit and have not been disturbed until I tried germinating them.
Can anyone shed light on what may be wrong? are the seeds just too old? Has anyone sought to have replacement seeds from ILGM? I ordered the seeds through a different email address from the one I use on this forum and raised this issue but have yet had a response. Just want to know if its worth waiting for a response or should I buy new seeds to hope they get to me before lockdown starts?
