30-40 year old seed ressurection

So I was fortunate to have a close friend of my mom who recently passed on at age 94 who has been growing in southern Humboldt/ Mendocino county since the mid 70's pass some oldies on to me a while back, some of the varieties include maziar I Sharif, and afghan from the Khyber pass, as well as a bunch of unknowns, a columbian, and an afghan Cambodian cross, all seeds range from 1979 to 87.

I have germinated a few somewhat wastefully just out of curiosity in the past to see if any would germinate, and yeah I have had success germinating but ultimately with nowhere to cultivate at that time it was just a test to see if some magic would happen.

Surprisingly enough some germinated.. more recently I took a go at the afghan Cambodian and about 5 of 20 sprouted tails, but got stunted and the tails didnt continue to grow, was curious what would be a good way to go about bringing these babies to life. As obviously they are alive, and need a little more than a paper towel germination.

Any advice would be appreciated as this would be radical to unlock some oldie landrace cannabis genetics that could be a solid gold smoke for anyone into the classic nostalgia that would come from these old gals.

Hey! You have a really huge treasure in your hands, take care of them and you will be very happy.

My little experience with old seeds makes me warn you about few things. Keep them on the fridge, unless you want to germinate them.
Make the germination with a spoon of H2O2 in 200ml of water for minimize bad companies, you know what i mean... And of course a temperature between 20-24 ºC will be great.

They may could germinate but make them root...will be hard to do. Be patience, make warn and keep it wet...

Let us know please!

One trick that has worked very well for me with older or hard to germ seeds is to "nip the tip" of the seed. Using a small pair of nail clippers you ever so carefully clip off the very tip of the pointy end of the seed shell. It's important not to damage the embryo inside, you just want to make it easier for the seedling to emerge without using up all of it's valuable energy resources.

The worm bin is also a good one to try. Many times I've had seeds that I'd given up on sprout after being discarded in the active worm bins.

Best of luck to you, those are some very interesting heirloom genetics you hold. That Afghani/Cambodian has me especially curious!

Gibberellic Acid works also pretty well. Hope you find some nice lost genetics in your hunt!
