Hey growbuddies Ive been reading here and on some of the other forums about poor germination rates. Its a problem i used to have. I can be sorta cheap and when i started buying storebought seeds, it just killed me to pay $10 bucks for a seed and watch it lay there in my paper towels and never sprout. It was just too much when i started buying premium seeds at $20=30 bucks each so i sat out determined to fix the problem, especially when you consider that dead seed was going to produce a lb of smoke worth $3000 bucks. I was loosing sleep.. After 2 years of reading and research at our Universitys Ag library, i created a small device that has given me 100% generation for may last 120+ packs of seeds. Not a single seed failure in 12 years. I would like to share that device with those who might want to use it. It will change your life and it is without exception the most important piece of growing equipment i own...... AND IT COST $25 TO MAKE IT.!!!!! First, let me explain the concept. My research led me to a realization: Cannabis seeds, and the seeds of many other plants germinate at temps between 76 anf 80 degrees farenheit. The farther the temps drop below 76, the slower the seeds will germ untii about the temp of 68 in which they wont germinate at all. At 82, the seeds wont ever germinate. Cannabis roots also form in cloning between 76 and 80 with the same principle. Below 76 and roots will come slow, above 80 and roots are slow if at all. REQUIRED PARTS 1. A 2 -3 gallon clear plastic storage tub ($3)M 2. A smaller, sandwhich sized tupperware plastic box ($2) 3. A cleaning size antibacterial sponge, ($2) 4. A self setting aquarium heater ($7 at WalMart) 5. An aquarium thermometer, ($1.50) The larger tub is fillled 1/2 way with water and the aquarium heater is placed in the larger tup and allowed to heat the water to a temp of 76 degrees, confirmed by your aquarium thermometer which is also in the larger tub. The little preset heater is set for 76 degrees. It seems thats the temp for fish as well. The sponge is cut in half or buy 2 and the seeds will be placed in between the 2 sponges. The sponge unlike paper towels, allows air to the seed and keeps water away from them. The seeds are subjected to moisture between the sponges but not water. The sponges should be saturated but not dripping. The sponges go in the sandwhich tupperware box and the top placed on it and then it is place floating in the 76 degree water. In short order, the sponges and the moistrue in the sponges are also at 76 and thats where the seeds are at. The consitent temperature, water and air will quickly germinate any viable seed placed in it. With this method, 90% of indica seeds will germinate and pop within 18 hrs and all will have popped within 24. Long flowering equatorial sativa's which are very hard and moisture resistant can take up to 72 hrs but most will pop within 48. This little contraption is the most important device i own. I can buy single seeds and pop them all day long. I hope you will try it. It will change your seed purchasing life.
