    028.jpg 030.jpg 033.jpg 035.jpg 037.jpg 038.jpg here's how they did in 48 hrs from dropping in water ! tails are out and looks like a few more are going to crack so they are good after 30 days drying time from harvesting them and will get only better with time on gemination rates .

    these ones will be the female seeds when i'm done with them i did a small batch and they where good so now we got the ones i want to work with for a staggered crop so we can handles alot more spots with all females and straight in 20 gallon bags. been a few season of thinning out strains that didn't do what i want them to and especially when i need them to

    are you going to keep a regular seed stock? and what do you do if you do not have a oven with a pilot? ie electric.

    thats an awfully crazy germinatin tek, i just put em in a paper towel and damp w/ spray-n-grow, then into ziplock on top of tv box. not hating though you obviously get good germ rates.:lol: Sounds legit though, is this indoor or outdoor?

    i know it sounds crazy but any warm dark area is good as long as they are warm its not very hot with just a pilot light on ,just my method of maddness!!! this will be done indoors for the winter and then the beans will be for my outdoor season next spring

    Hi getaway, glad to see you're back at it. I dig your methods and want to learn.
    Are you producing seeds for this spring? Is there enough time? What's your process?

    Can you share your method for getting summer plants up and running using regular (non-fem) seeds. I've been using fem seeds for the past few years now because I generally dig holes and it is too time consuming digging all those holes for potential males. I'd like to start them early, sex them indoors, and put out clones, but what do you do when that isn't an option? Maybe putting them out as is in 5 gallon bags and transplanting them into bigger bags or holes when they show? Either that or starting maybe 20 plants 12/12 from seed and putting them out to re-veg when they show?
