    just sprinkle them on to some soil in a fairly deep planter and lightly spray them with water and don't cover the seeds.. the root will brake and the plant will fail to grow if you try germinating them like pot seeds..

    your eBay seeds should be fine.. but you can go to the spicerack section in any store and get poppy seeds.. most of the time there viable.. pick up some McCormick brand poppy seeds .. the gourmet organic kind.. 1517091789525518818882.jpg

    don't cover them.. they dampen off easily ... just mist the seed until they sprout.. afterwards carefully spray or water them and be sure to thin them out before they get to big.. if you don't thin them while they're young they'll grow into each others roots at which point you'll have to cut them out... they'll first sprout up with two thin leaves, when they start their second set of leaves they'll fall over.. this is normal.. at this point don't cover the stem.. they'll rot and die... poppy sprouts are very delicate..

    Its an interesting plant to grow. They look like a weed, an ugly weed, then suddenly this stunning bloom occurs, and like a couple days later all you have is this weird alien pod thing. Worth doing at least once just to see it.

    Hi there, @farmerfischer

    Could you message me with a mini guide on hydro poppy growing please?
    I tried growing a few strains last year but I started too late in the season and alas, the heat got them in the end. This year however, i'm determined to get a grow going .. and after weihjinh the pros and cons of playing God I've decided on growing hydroponically this time around
    I am also a beginner at hydro cannabis growing. With awesome results so far...
    Anyways, i need to know some general specifics... such as
    1) best PH of water and nutrient solution
    2) air temp and water temp
    3) nutrients: what kind ? How much per gal?
    4) seeds: best vendor to buy from
    5) strains: which strains produce the strongest yield or which are your fave?
    6) lighting: are LEDs ok? If not I've heard t5's are the best but how many should I use for a relatively small space to grow 2 to 4 plants?

    I currently own 2 led lights.. one grow star 1200 w n another knockoff brand

    I have some blue poppy seeds from a few different organic stands and markets in my area as well as a packet of black swan poppy seeds from home depot..

    I know they're all viable.

    But I wanna get the best seeds
    I hate using online information because most sites have different instructions..
    I'd rather take the advice of a seasoned poppy grower personally. So any and all help you can offer would be GREATLY appreciated..

    Thank u so much

    This is what they look like if you don't thin them out while they're young.. they stay small and spindly.. still they look cool ..

    Over crowding caused them to stay small,but I don't care.. they still look cool and the blooms are always awesome to look at.. IMG_20180310_235431.jpg couple days and they will be in full bloom.. some may open tomorrow..
