Germinating Big Mack Superstar And Lemon Drip Cannabis Seeds
Last year I received some cannabis seed gifts from a couple of blockchain friends.
@jonyoudyer sent me some Big Mack Superstar seeds, and @choosefreedom sent me Lemon Drip seeds and Cherry Punch. Unfortunately the Cherry Punch seeds got crushed somehow, either during shipping or during my recent move. It's unfortunate but happens sometimes, but luckily all of the Lemon Drip seeds are well in tact.
A big thank you to @jonyoudyer and @choosefreedom for sending me these seeds! This is my first time ever trying to grow known strains. Let's see what happens!
I am germinating using the paper towel method. (This germination method is also a first for me.)
First I soaked the seeds for thirty minutes, with 10% hydrogen peroxide added to the water.
I decided to germinate three seeds of each strain. If I get two pops from each strain, I will be happy :)

I had trouble getting decent photos of the Lemon Drip seeds floating, not sure why, perhaps it was the containers holding the seeds which interfered with the quality of the photos, but one thing is certain, the Big Mack Superstar seeds are highly photogenic seeds. This of course doesn't mean much, but they sure are pretty seeds to look at, and very mature and fat :)
I gave the paper towels a generous saturation of water and capped this container to sit on top of my refrigerator where it stays nice and warm.
I expect these will pop faster than normal because of the presoak and germination method and will be bringing an update as soon as they do.
How does everything look with this germination method I used? I would love to hear the thoughts of the cannabis community.
I'm looking forward to a beautiful summer with big cannabis plants in my home and will hopefully have a lot to brag about when these are done.
Big thanks again @jonyoudyer and @choosefreedom , I will do my best to grow some plants that will bring a smile to your faces!
Thank you for stopping by, your time is a valuable commodity, and I always keep this in mind and do my best to respond to everyone.
Have a great day! -@futuremind
Ey! Me alegra mucho saber de vos y poder leerte. Que bueno que todavia continúes con lo que tanto te gusta hacer. Muchos éxitos y a cuidar esas semillas.
Gracias mi amigo!
Me encanta la jardinería y espero traer actualizaciones en el camino! También voy a volver a estar activo con la impresión 3D pronto!
Que bueno porque dejaste de publicar y la comunidad de impresion3D murió jajaja
Just make sure you have the paper towel enclosed. I like to use two plates, others use a zip lock baggie. Hell yeah man can’t wait to see how they do!
Hey brother, thanks for the kind words and support! Yes I have them in a little Tupperware container with a lid! :)
Looking forward to growing your Big Mack Superstars! 😁
Welcome back, good luck.
Thanks a lot bro! :D
Awesome job, The bmac is an awesome strain. Best of luck this grow
Thanks a lot bro! I'm super excited to grow these strains and get active blogging again :D
yeah happy growing
Thanks so much @loonatic :)
For what it's worth I started germinating in wet towel, then I planted directly in soil to save me work and now I have returned to germinate in wet towel because the germination rate is much higher. I usually leave them in water for at least 12 hours, well the last ones I planted I forgot and they were in water for 36 hours and they all germinated :).
Good luck with the crop.
Thank you for the kind words @happyfrog420-new!
I've heard great things about this germination method but just never tried it before. I figured because I'm working with some known strains on a limited supply, I should try the most optimal method(s) known, and might also seed them so I can produce a seed bank of my own. I've never tried seeding plants either, probably because I just get mostly females all the time for some reason :D
I had one pop within 24 hours and getting ready to check them this morning. I expect to see some life! ;D
