GA3 @ 300ppm, with a 1/4 teaspoon of seaweed. File edges and soak for 6-10 hours. I like to take a razor and slice into the point of the seed, to open it up, that way I know it's getting a good soak.

I filed 10 of my 2005 seeds yesterday, put them in a tumbler filled with sand for a few hours, now soaking in Camomile tea. After that into bags with wet coco soil at 83° F. Will see...

Peace, Wayne

floh...garden sand, or beach sand...you know, the fine white stuff? & by the way the FDA does not allow Camomile to be exported to Germany! Sorta thinking you are a couple of degrees short of proper germination temp!!! Have read 85 or so. Peace, Wayne

Hm, what is it about Camomile tea? I can buy this everywhere over here. I´m also using it to soak pepper and chili seeds, works pretty good / higher germination rate. I used what they call "sharp sand" in my tumbler.
Going to set the temp a bit higher now, thanks.
