when i popp seeds, i scuff them in a matchbox that has 2 flat peices of sandpaper in it for about 30 seconds last year i popped some seeds that were at least 3-4 yrs old and had good success inall the way thru but had to go to jail for 45 days and someone didnt exactly take tip top care of the girls if ya know what i mean...

if someone reminds me later when im off work ill post some pic of the matchbox its not rocket science tho... lol small matchbox with sandpaper inside

i did this to a tee had like 35 seeds and only like 3 of them germinated
I find you need to leave them a month first I germinated 50 two weeks after they were harvested and ten germinated so I put them down to shit
2 months later I chucked a couple hundred to germinate thinking to get 20 ......every single one of them germinated !

It gets done all the time, I'm not sure what you call it.


I've read to leave seeds in the branches and just post-harvest dry/cure the buds like normal?
Should I de-seed after a dry?
Quick dry or slow?
Will seeds be in danger?

Reading as we speak for these answers,
maybe you can help me sooner, thanks!

i remove my seeds from the growing plant, if they are done, but it wont hurt to let them dry and what not, but i say if you can get them out of the bud b4 you trim after the chop, go for it, it will save you some hassle latter looking for seeds.

me i would deseed predry.

dry the seeds out on a paper plate or something for like a week before jarring for sure.

shouldn't be no danger to the seeds except you.

Is there a standard on how seedbanks label their hybrids?

ie - Skunk #1 x Afghani #1

In the above example is Skunk #1 the female or the male?

I am trying to make seeds myself, the pollinated female is ak48 and in it's 10th week of flower, will I see the seeds? some of them will be inside the buds? They will ( or could have) dropped off on me? I just figured they will be inside the buds? I can see some lil seed pods , btw this was a medical ak48 seed i found, was a male, so being my only plant I turned it hermie for self pollinate and hopefully some seeds. What do you think for a pretty small hermie? Let it go and keep an eye on it? Not ready yet? Flower time takes longer when you want seeds? TY! here is a pic .IMG_2265.jpg Long way to go still?
