I am not sure if this has
ever happened to you while going through storage BUT damn am I happy
it happened to me. After having this storage unit for 5 plus years I
honestly had no clue what I would end up finding.
I found myself 5+ year old marijuana seeds and by two very respected breeders imho. I found a 2 pack of super silver sour diesel haze and a 10 pack of 9lb hammer. What I love is the fact that both of these strains are regular seeds.
If possible, I do my best to stay away from feminized and auto strains. I have ran all types BUT when I am looking into possible breeding projects, all I want is the real deal regular marijuana strain genetics to work with.
Germinating Marijuana Seeds
thought I was going to have more difficultly than I did when I
started my marijuana germination process. I normally start by tossing
the seeds in a shot glass filled half way with water and a cap full
of hydrogen peroxide.
I shove the seeds down into the water/hydrogen peroxide mixture a few times to make sure the full shell is submerged and then leave them be for a day or two.
After a couple days, all of the seeds have sunk to the bottom which means they were ready for the next step.
Paper Towel Method
toss the seeds into a wet paper towel and seal it in a tupperware
container or a plastic bag ( it acts like a small greenhouse to
increase the humidity ) and place it on something warm. You can use a
cable box, top of a computer, alarm clock, certain fridges OR be
smart and get a germination mat and control the temp correctly.
After a few days I had tap roots showing on all of the seeds. I actually got 100% germinate rates. The place I lost a couple was after I placed them in soil and a couple had a hard shell problem.
I had to rescue a few of them from their shells and others were just to stuck in there to really be able to free them so I tossed them in compost.
Placing The Plants In Containers
started them in small containers and like most plants I toss a few in
the same containers. There is no point for me to waste space if one
doesn’t pop so I like to put 2-3 per small pot. I find working this
way versus the large seedling trays to be easier to work with within
a 4×4 grow tent.
As they got larger, I then started to split them off into their own individual larger 1 gallon grow pots to finish out their vegging ( well at least until the sexing of the plants finalizes ).
A Couple Weeks Vegging Marijuana Plants
The 9lb hammer is doing great. I like seeing the different phenotypes that are starting to show up. I only have the one sssdh and man am I hoping it ends up being a male. With a male, I will have much more ability to work with the genetics than if it was just a female plant.
Time will tell but no matter what its genetic making ends up being, I know I will find a place for it within my future breeding projects.
Are You Going To Flower Them Or Make Them Moms
to first sex them all and see what I am working with. Any of the
males that I feel I want to possibly “flower” out will
immediately be topped and a clone taken of it to clone and put in a
small growing container.
I can then do pollen runs later on with each male and collect and store the pollen for future breeding projects and marijuana seed giveaways that are in the future.
What Are Your Plans For The 9lb Hammer and SSSDH Genetics?
I have always wanted to grow the 9lb hammer because of the genetics within the strain itself. I have grown stuff from tga but never worked with jinxproof so I had to grab a pack. When I bought the pack I also received a freebie strain which happened to be the sssdh by connoisseur genetics. I was more than excited to get at least one of the super silver sour diesel haze to pop out of the two old seeds I had.
really all depends on what the plants do and if they are worth
keeping around after the first grow or two. I don’t grow based on a
name or hype so it has to work for me or those I know for it to stay
With the genetics within them though, it would be hard to not find a keeper within the seeds that did germinate.
January 20th 2019 Grow Show Updates
It has been a minute since I updated this page. Been busy setting up my youtube channel and getting my future projects all ironed out. Right now I have my videos shot in a black and white style to remove the strong blue color that comes from my led grow light.
The great part about setting everything up is I can get it all put together the way I need and want it. I have already found all of video/audio gear that I want to use.
I am also getting my various grow areas lined out so they will have killer video and still photo shot angles. In the mean time though, I am steadily building up my subscriber base and enjoying growing again.
How To Get Free Marijuana Seeds?
If you are wanting to participate in my various giveaways there are a few things you need to do. You need to watch all my videos on this page all the way through. You need to be a subscriber and you need to post at least one comment on ANY video that I have on my channel.
I am working towards getting above 2,000 subscribers again. I have had this channel for many years but got out of the youtube game for awhile and went off the grid.
I am super excited to get back into documenting my various marijuana breeding projects and have always loved giving stuff away.
The fun part about growing your own plants is watching them grow over time. If you didn’t get the pictures and videos, you never would notice just how quickly they change each and every day.
If you haven’t gotten started growing your own, you really need to get started. It isn’t that difficult to do and once you get that green thumb everything will just start to click for you.
In the coming weeks I will have cut clones of these 9 pound hammers. Soon after that will be my favorite part which is getting the plants into flower and seeing what phenotypes I want to run and work with.
January 23rd 2019 Marijuana Veg Updates
The 9lb hammer and the sssdh are growing great. I am right around the corner from cutting clones, sexing them and tossing them in 12/12.
I know I will find keeper phenos within the 9lb hammer but still hoping the sssdh is a male so I can use that for breeding projects as well.
The sssdh has a LONG flower time and I would prefer to put those genetics into a faster flowering female like the 9lb hammer.
I do think that a 9lb hammer x sssdh would be a killer cross. Hell even a 9lb hammer x 9lb hammer will be amazing. It has some great genetics within it and would love to see what pops in the f1-f7 breeding projects from it.
February 2019 Led Grow Tent Updates
These girls are growing so fast. Some are around 2ft tall but an overall average of about 15 inches give or take.
I have a ton of projects in store for the 9 lb hammer and also hope to turn the sssdh female ( I think ) into a great breeding female for my pack of male hammers to pollen chuck all over.
The other great update is that I will be ordering a few rosin presses to work with later in the season. I am excited to finally be able to run concentrates without any sort of solvent.
As you can see in the video update ( with pictures ), the girls and guys are growing great. I can’t wait to get these running in flower.
Check this page for my grow updates as I will update this before forums or social media sites.
How's it going fellow growers and smokers! I'm the Aardvark and have been growing and doing grow shows online for many years now. I have helped various companies launch as well as helped test grow for specific breeders trying to prove out certain strains and traits.
