A question from a fellow grower:
I was looking for information on how far away to keep male plants from female ones so they don’t get pollenated. The Internet says between 4 feet & 20 miles! I liked what you said about not wasting time with non-feminized seeds - and as a beginner, use a strain that’s “forgiving.” That made a lot of sense to me so I downloaded the guide.
There’s a lot of information on The Web - it can get very confusing. How about an article dispelling the most common myths & misconceptions? I tried to germinate 40 seeds (different strains) by placing them in shot glasses with half-strength fertilizing solution on a heating mat for 24 hours before planting them in peat pods. Only 3 sprouted. : (
My new method is to soak them for 24 hours in distilled water - no heat - then place them in cut down (3 inches) Styrofoam cups with 2 parts shifted peat moss, 1 part Perlite, 1 part Vermiculite, and only distilled water until the first true leaves appear, then water with half strength fertilizer. I’m 3 for 3. : ) Any tweaks to my method?
