    Here we go again..

    Hello brothers and sisters!
    This thread is gonna document my next grow!
    My previous thread was:
    https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=377193 (Critical Kush Auto from Urban Legends grown under TS1000 Mars Hydro led)
    This time we are growing sativas, landrace sativas to be more precise. And we are gonna use a TSW2000 Mars Hydro light, 300W leds.

    Swazi Rooibard seeds put to pregerminate between paper towels after 12 hours in a water glass:

    I don't usually do pregermination but these are kinda old seeds so that's the reason I germinated so many of them and tried to give them all the chances to germinate. I have more seeds if this fails, but if I find the germination rate is too low I will also need to make some seeds this run so the genetics are preserved. We'll see about that.
    Here is a pic of a bud of swazi redbeard (rooibard) from way back.. when I was just discovering sativas and starting to like them more and more:

    Everyone is welcome here, grab a chair, let's grow some weed and have fun doing it!
    I have no ideea what I'll do, but I'll do it. Still painting the details of the grow. But.. always good to let the seeds have a headstart, especially when they are so old.

          that´s a lot of seeds. what are you gonna do if they all pop? your tent in the photo doesn´t look that large, so do you have more grow space for all the plants?

            @Syd Barrett Thank you man. You got a front row seat.

            @unregistered190 Thank you as well. Please enjoy!

            @Hold Your Fire Welcome to the thread!

            @Cuddles Hello man. Thanks for the visit as well.
            I have more growspace but I don't expect such a good germ rate. I had a test germ before and from 20 or so just 2 showed tail. Ideally, i would need about 3 plants per pot (cause those aren't feminised). I could deal with 8 to 16 plants in those 4 big pots. We'll see how many of them germinate. If not, next germ round i do scarification and very controlled environment condition to give them a slightly better chance.

                Red beard, very nice... A very distinct flower formation, will be watching this one closely!

                    TSW2000 is enough to grow 4 middle size plants. Cannot wait to see what it can do for your babies.

                        @Mars Hydro Led I'm not worried the light won't do it. If the TS1000 was good in the space, then the TSW2000 should be great. It's double the wattage so why shouldn't that be good? Haha.
                        Thank you for taking a seat and watching my grow! Enjoy!

                        @sdd420 hopefully you are right. You are more than welcomed to watch the show as well.

                          did you pop them into the freezer before germinating them? I´ve always been told that this helps, especially with older seeds.

                            Have not tried anything more than this so far. If this really fails then yes I might try diferent methods for the 200 or so seeds left. For now i hope i get about the number of plants I need from the seeds I put to germinate. We'll see.

                              I just checked on the seeds, they are well moisted and sitting at a nice 26C. Hope to see some nice signs of shell cracking in a day or two.

                              Any sativa growers in here?
                              I need help with something if any of you has any input on it would be great!
                              I usually do 12/12 flowering but have heard of varius reduced light programs being used for sativas. Is there any reason to do other flowering schedule than 12/12?

                              Peace & Puffs to everyone! Have a great weekend!
