Hello, I am looking for a bit of advice with the Gold Leaf strain seeds. I started germination on December 28th with (5) Gold Leaf seeds. I placed them all in a 75 degree water container heated with an electric heating pad to maintain constant temps. I used 6.8 ph well water. After 24 hours (2) seeds opened so I placed them in a mix of Fertilome, Seed & Cutting and Friendly Fox soil. All’s well with those two seeds. The other (3) seeds were kept in water another 12 hours and then removed and placed in a moist paper towel and wrapped in the warm blanket again for another 24 hours. Nothing happened. I then took those (3) three seeds and planted them under 2.54 Centimeters deep in my potting Fertilome Seed & Cutting and FF mix soil. The two of seeds have been in that state ever since. I pulled (1) seed up yesterday to look at it and to see if it was too wet or moldy… Nothing. The shell was a bit soft to the touch but no mold so I put in back in the soil.
I have since started three Northern Lights seeds with the same procedure and they have all opened up and are now in soil with their little heads pointing towards the light. Now I have (5) girls pointed towards the light.
I have since ordered (20) more GL seeds since I really enjoy that smoke. I want to make sure I have a better outcome with the next GL germination attempt. What could I have done wrong? 4 of the 5 seeds all looked good and were of average size and color with no apparent blemishes or cracks. I believe the water ph was OK. The blanket temperature wasn’t too hot. Help.
