    Happy New Year Boss.
    Your garden looks damn good.

    I'm guessing that is sugar water in that bottle for this experiment?

    Good Morning Everyone !!!

    This mornings update is short and sweet, got a lot goin on today

    I should have a final harvest tally pic tomorrow

    The Zamal & Oaxacan beans are bein a bitch so I started a new experiment. Put several in a seed soak, so far they are floaters so I cracked one open and put the little embryo in the soak and it opened up

    Now just need to see if it actually grows ?

    I've seen him do that and be successful with it. RM3, I'm sure you can pull it off too. Were they really old or just tuff beans? Ever tried scarification? I've done it with old seeds before and it worked great. Just line a matchbox or small container with FINE grit sandpaper, put seeds inside a shake a lil bit. It allows the water to penetrate the shell and stimulate germination.

    My little experiments are posted in this thread: http://rollitup.org/t/i-need-help-germinating-beans.837221/

    I placed one in rockwool and one in coco, both just some tap water, and they both broke the soil sort of speak as usual. So yeah, it's a feasible way to overcome and possibly exclude external dormancy.

    Reminds me of a funny thread at another forum, couple of guys experimenting with tissue culture, but instead of using "tissue" they use seeds... at least take off the shell :lol:
