I only put a seed in a towel if the towel is truly high quality. I used low-quality towel once and it actually turned the seedlings to mush via what I suspect is contamination by bad microbes or fungus or bacteria.
I use the peat products because they have perfect pH for cracking seed. And I only use them for germinating seeds.
I'll use something like root riots only for cuttings and never for seed... I usually keep all my mother's backed up with domes, trays, and root riots in case something happens ...even if I have to throw them in the trash if there's no space to grow them out.
Generally, I really like an aero cloner and a dwc cloner for my cuttings.
I soak the seeds for 24 hours.
At the same time, I hydrate the pucks ...and when they raise up ...I hit them with a little bit of Great White mycos.
24 hours later I drop the seed down into it not too deep cover it up with a little peat and put it under a clamp lamp with a twisty bulb in it for heat.
And this case I'm three for three with the Afghan Kush... And I got a cross made with Bay 11 called Unknown Kush (delicious seeds) in the other two pucks that I'm still waiting to see break the top.
I cracked Afghan Kush, which you didn't ask me about but want to offer, because it's the first seed I bought ages and ages and ages ago from Attitude Seed Bank.
My first ever see purchase was Afghan Kush, blue cheese, and Kaya 47.
Since this is my first seed crack in a while I figured I'd go back to my roots.
Even better, a thorough and very honorable member on the board got me lined up for cuts so it should be a good year !!!!!!!!!!!!
