Master Yoda and I discussed the options of increasing the number of female Jedi Knights around since the untimely loss of Princess Leia this past year and decided to grow one Skywalker OG seed that I recently received from Robert. It will grow in my homemade grow box that has been so functional over the past several years. The pictures below was taken 24 hours after the seed was placed in a wet paper towel. I scored the seed with a nail file and placed it between the paper towel sheets and placed the sheets between two small plates. It grew so fast that I could not remove it from the paper towel so I cut the towel into a small square and placed it in my starter soil. As Lord Vader would say “Impressive” in growth for a short time period.
That was the easiest seed to pop I have ever had and as you can see, the seed cover completely fell away from the plant with no help. I am now committed to scoring every seed at the start. It was enjoyable to not have to mess around removing the seed pod and risking damage to the tender plant inside.
If this is any indication of how well this young Skywalker will grow, I will be mightily impressed with the results of this crop.
