    Nine Year Old Brothers Grimm Seeds In Home Made DWC/NFT System 4X4X8 Grow Tent

    Hi Everyone,

    I am current trying to start some very old seeds that I have had here for a few years. I wasn't sure if they would sprout or not as they are about 9 years old. I was shocked when they did sprout to say the least. (Some quality seeds)They were lost in cold storage with rice/film canister for about 9 nine years. I purchase them from Brothers Grimm and wasn't able to grow them out. I had grown out F2 of Grimm seeds over the years but never these originals. Because the seeds were so old they have been having growing pains. They were not very healthy after sprouting in rockwool and I have been nursing them to life ever since.

    Grimm seeds started Apollo 11 (2 of 10), Apollo 13 (3 of 10), and C99 (3 of 10).

    The Apollo 13 are looking like mutants :( they do seem to be coming along though.


    I am hoping they will start to get better formed nodes as they get older.

    I have the PH set at about 5.9 and the EC around 1.0. They are all under a 400 watt HPS system.

    I built the DWC/NFT system myself out of two big GWC containers I got from Home Depot. They both have a nutrient stream that is recycled though the system that runs back into containers.




    Each tub has a air stone and a heater. They also both have a digital temperature reader.

    I have also started some older NL #5 X Apollo 11 seeds that were not Grimm seeds. So far these look better getting started.




    I have two Apollo 11's that look like the one below I am not sure if it will sprout a new node, I am hoping so. Anyone seen this type of thing before?



    Thanks for checking out my newest grow. I will keep updates here.

        looking good

        @brifunforme Thanks, they are starting to take off some and growing faster now that they are in the NFT system.

        @has_some_sinse I consider myself lucky to have found these seeds, though I would never get to try them out. Really enjoyed checking out your Gallery. Hope I have some buds to show you soon.

              Week 3 1/2 update

              Hey everyone, good progress over the last week and half. Plants are growing unbelievably fast! One of the C99 has an amazing Lemon Smell, you can smell it as soon as you open the tent. I am taking clones this weekend. Got a very powerful Axel fan last week, the humidity was getting insane. Sucks the tent walls right in. Keeping the temp about 24 -25C. The Northern Lights X C99 are coming along but are a couple weeks behind. They are on the right hand side of the pictures. Also a couple of Chemo X Apollo 11 on that side.

              PH 5.7 - 6.0
              EC .80
              Sensi Grow A + B, Vitamax and Cal-Mag from GrowTek.



              This C99 is the one that has the great lemon smell.



              Made a sweet DIY rubber made cloner I will have to post some pics this weekend.

              @SOTF420 I will be keeping my best C99 male. Looking right now like I have a male. I have been keeping a close eye on preflowers. Any help you can give would be awesome!

                Make seeds please! So you have NL#5 x c99? F2's of them would be amazing. After watching dongle do her thing with it I just have to try it. And C99 is great also. Thanks for sharing

                  Looking good CD, and I'm surprised there's not more people screaming out seeds seeds. You'll be doing the grower and breeder community a solid by holding onto that pollen and making some crosses. Look forward to your progress and thanks for sharing!

                              Took some cutting on Saturday, I think the blade was a bit dull and mashed some of the stems. They turned purple and died pretty fast. Some seem to be doing ok. I will post some pics when I do an update. There some pretty spoiled plants.

                              Picked up one of these to drain the water out of the tubs. Had to do two changes this weekend it was pretty rough the plants are getting really big! Hoping this will make the job much easier.
