    UPDATE

    Planted the Seeds in Time.
    Like stated above ^^
    At the time I planted the seeds in starting soil, 1 of the reference Seeds had grown a tail. That was @100ppm. Today the first two germinated and smiled out of the soil in my face. Like they try to say "we made it Sir ...whats up with those other Beans"
    So its scientificaly proof that the Method at least @100ppm did not kill the seeds. But anyway thats late for this Seeds. In just water they are way faster.

    The two Orange Skunk Seeds in plain spring water showed no signs of cracked shell at this point. Seeds looked pale bit like unripe but...
    Planted in jiffy those were the first to germinate two days ago. Planted into small pots yesterday night after work.

    The BR6 cross
    Not one single seed showed signs of cracked shell at the point of planting into starting soil ( same as used for the reference seeds Batch)
    No positive signs of serious germination already observed yet.

    But being patient. Have seen Seeds starting late before.

    Will Update again

    If I am lucky and get some Plants out of this experiment I guess I should call the Strain "total brainfuck"

    Peace out

    Nothing new by now.

    I think the beans are done ... not one germinated.

    Next try will be with some extra enzymes and sugars combined with ga3 and one without... I guess.
    But not soon...
    Have to work on my this years Gardenfruits like Tomatoes and Peppers a.s.o.

    **If anybody can share positive experience with a similar Project, feel free to post it here.

    @xtsho
    Have fun Bro

    Peace out

    Yes. Thats how I understood it and I made it.

    In the Video the germination in 250ppm was higher but after planting he had more sprouts coming from the 100ppm.
    His Seeds were 15yr old.
    He stated the older the seeds the hiigher you should go in ppm.

    So whats your Project?

    Peace

    thanks @Gbuddy

    just trying to pop my older seeds i never got around to growing. have a little more time and space now. have about 20 strains to test.

    seeds are 5-10 yrs, some probably older

    Haha I see we have similar Problems.
    I think its much easier when the seeds were stored airtight and cold.

    At least we know that the method will not harm Seeds.
    I know its not much....

    Peace

    You will have a better chance like me to successfully germinate some of your gear. At least I think so. But no guaratee anyways. You never know how Seeds were stored before you got them, except you made them yourself.

    But in my Book you have a good chance Bro!


    Btw.
    I just germinated 5 of my reference Seeds. Lil experiment...Started at totaly wrong moonphase and let them alone in papertowel for 4 days and I didnt care a rats shit about them.
    4 out of 5 made it.

    Because of space limits I wasnt able to plant them.... so I ate them. Tasted pretty sweet.

    Peace

    my GA3 came in today, let the experiments begin.

    tell me more about the moonphase concept.
