    Default Let battle commence!

    Having failed a few times with my AK GummyGun seeds, it's time for a concerted effort!

    The seeds are best part of 10 year old & it's at least 5 year since I successfully germinated one... I've been playing around with them & am starting to think the issue is the shell not opening (or not properly) as I often have had a little 'gunk' appear on the seam of the shell case.

    OK, out with the dremel & I have cut down into the seed shell - I tried extracting the kernel on a few but always damaged them... so I've just heavily cut into the seam... see what happens!

    I've only started with one (they are regulars) - let's see how we get on...

    With old seeds like this . I covered the inside of a match book with 400 grit wet and dry sandpaper then tossed the seeds in and gave them a good shake until the seed cases had a good amount of scuffing to them and then germed them as normal

    I think these are from the breeder 'Crazy X Seeds'?.. who was very active here once upon a time many, many years ago now

    I wonder what happened to them.

    I remember the hype around the forum with the 'Lemon Stinky'.

    Well, that didn't work either... back to the drawing board

    I know I should really just bin the seeds - but that would be defeatist... and I'm not like that

    Would soaking them in a diluted rooting hormone give them a better chance?

    M_C, you know what this sounds like? A fun forum Challenge!

    Everyone dig out your oldest seeds, and get germinating! Let's say that the person who gets the most germs out of 5 seeds, of any strain, "wins". XD
