Never seen this b4


#1

Just started my ilgm gscx , as soon as I placed the seed in water it sunk to the bottom, is this ok I thought it was to float 4 a day


#2

It happens some times. Its not that uncommon.

Happy growing :slight_smile:


#3

About 1/2 of my seeds sank right away. The others just didn’t want to sink.

@Dumme and @Matthew420 thanks guys I was getting scared, but if all say its cool,than cool, also these were the smallest seeds I’ve ever used never had good luck with the small ones but lets c what happens. Can’t wait, I bet this will be the best smoke I’ve ever had@ least I hope so.

Sometimes they never sink. You can try just popping them under water with your finger. Eventually, most will stay down. Can take hours, though…


#6

No problem man, that’s why we’re here. :wink:

Cheers


#7

And rest assured. @Dumme and the rest of the gang know they’re sh*t!


#8

@Matthew420 yeah u right
Tru story

Generally the fresher the faster they sink . don’t leave them re then 3-4 hours in water , if they sink immediately … Noticed this when breeding . new stocks for myself …

Ah, gotcha. Pull the sinkers out first. I followed Robert’s 24-hour instructions and 12/12 germinated. I’ll try yours next time. Always looking to improve and learn.

Thanks for the tip!!!


#14

Just a question . When you followed Roberts instructs did you have immediate sinkers ??

@Hammer Some sank right away, yes. Some floated for a couple hours, some floated for like 12 hours.

Funny thing is. I visually sorted the seeds by how they looked and kept track of them. The 5 “good looking seeds” are way ahead of the others. Some seeds were pretty green. They germinated but way behind.

Will post pics soon


#17

I’ll correct myself. They all floated for at least like a minute before some sank. They weren’t bricks. I looked back at my pics.


#18

The beauty of keeping records, I forget pretty quickly.


#19

Mine did the same thing my GSC sank and my Gold Leaf never did but both are sprouts now still 100% germination with ilgm .

They all grow. Magic beans for sure!
