seed germination expectations

  1. Hi all,

    I've germinated seeds 4 or times now and I never get 100% seed-plant ratio.

    Most recently I planted 3 kilimanjaro seeds. All 3 germinated, but when I transplanted them into the rokckwool and turned on the lights only one of them made an appearance.

    Is this normal or should I be expecting more ?

    I'm wondering if :

    a) I should buy seeds elsewhere
    b) I should do something different with them
    c) I should be happy with 30% seed-plant ratio.

  2. i dont have good luck either. im doing the clones. at least you dont to raise them---then kill half cuz there males! out of 10 seeds ill get 2-3 to harvest.:eek:
  3. Yeah. Cuttings are great. :)

    Unfortunately I'm stealth-growing cos there are kids in the house so I can't leave mother plants lying around. Otherwise I would definately make a mother from each different strain so as never to have to germinate one type twice.

    However, due to my current circumstances, I'm wondering if I can improve my technique or improve my supplier, or if I'm chasing the unachievable. ( sounds like the last one is probably true )
