I recently germinated my first ever groups of seeds - all purchased from this site !
I’m running the sweet mix, which is :
Gelato - Zkittles - Sunset Sherbet
I germinated all of my seeds at once, with separate glasses of water for each strain.
I noticed after just 24 hours that two Gelato, four Zkittles and six Sunsets had popped a tail.
I allowed those that popped a tail another 12 hours in the water to continue growing their tail.
I planted each seed into a rapid rooter cube as its tail reached double to triple the size of its seed.
I planted the tails pointing down as they would naturally grow, about a quarter to half inch or “knuckle deep” into the hole.
I covered each hole with a piece of the plug to create the needed darkness to sprout and kept the humidity hood nice and moist.
After 72 hours that the site suggests for germination, only 2 of my seeds did not show signs of a tail.
We must keep in mind that it is great to be offered a guarantee, but we are still experimenting with nature and nature will find it’s way to be unpredictable.
Completely satisfied with 28 out of 30 seeds germinated in the expected time, I decided to experiment with my final two seeds.
I left one Sunset and one Gelato in the water until the 7th night, as the site suggested in a more detailed description that the seeds may last up to a week in water.
They both showed small signs of a tail at that point and I went ahead and planted.
My final Sunset has sprouted and I have not noticed a few of my Gelatos yet. I feel this may be natural and the Gelato does have a longer expected grow time.
For anyone else that may be experiencing or thinking about trying all of this for the first time, give it a shot and enjoy the process of learning and growing.
Keep in mind that we are experimenting with nature and an open mind is bound to learn and grow !
Have fun and enjoy !
Example of tail length before planting, allow smaller tails to continue growing in water.
