    I'm going to try my luck again at the Peshawar (var. Album)Persian whites. This poppy strain does well in heat . unlike most other somniferum.

    0107171751b.jpg These guys are under 600 watt mh. And getting some overlap light from the h.p.s. 600. So they appear yellowish..
    Some far there growing still. Oh and that's a garlic plant in the middle of the seedlings.. The baby's under the h.p.s. are actually doing better then the baby's under the m.h. and c.f.l.( mixed ) 0107171751c.jpg Sorry about the lights but this is to show spectrum effects. The seedlings are smaller but growing more normal. Thicker leaves and less stretch with h.p.s. . the current light schedule is 9.25/14.75 they're currently sharing my medical cannabis room. But will probably be moved soon . the seedlings under the m.h. I'll be thinning out again . maybe today.

    My girl picked up some poppy seeds from the grocery store 0119172004.jpg I grew McCormick poppies from seed before so I thought I would try these out..
    So I took a pinch out and sprinkled them on to a damp paper towel and plate and put them in the fridge for five day's, at which point some of the seeds started popping.
    So carefully shook the seeds off the towel and into a six inch pot.
    Today I have sprouts..
    Curious to see what kinds are in this bottle.
    The bottle of seeds looks like a blend of white, Brown, grey and blue seeds. 0119171954a.jpg

    Switched the lights from 9.5 hours on, to 10.5 on. Over the next week in going to slowly switch to 12/12 for a few weeks to see if they bolt. If not I'll switch over to 16/8 0201172133a.jpg

    Well. The poppies are getting bigger, the tazzies are setting buds and getting ready the bolt and hook.

    On a different note. I recently bought two jars of spice rack poppy seeds. One bottle of McCormick gourmet organic seed and one bottle of McCormick classic poppy seeds.. They both germinated .
    Going sprinkle around outside in random spots and leave them and see what happens.

    are your poppies flowing? mine are still just leafy. the weathers been a bit wet and theyre in pots so one isnt doing so hot. It looks like the soil gnats have grown a liking to the dirt. they are really a nice plant to observe, i would like to try long term vegging a plant indoors. Is it true that they veg in shorter days and flower in longer?

    my tazzies are budding. No flowers yet , but getting there.
    And yes that's correct, they like short days for vegging and long days for flower.. I wish pics were up
