KISS rules with seed. Simple potting soil mix, no extra ferts or amendments, 3.5 inch square pots in a prop tray. No dome usually unless it’s too dry to maintain a moist substrate for 24 hours. Spray mist with plain water to til the sprouts pop and shed their seed coats, then gentle watering with plain water til a second set of true leaves appears.
1) lightweight, moist not soaked, soil
2) warmth, from 75-85F
3) veg-level light from the day they break soil
4) some air movement, which is why I usually don’t use a dome.
That’s it folks. All the rest is folklore. At best it won’t hurt anything, but at worst will stunt or kill your seedlings. I cringe at some of the techs I see on the boards, paper towels, kelp teas, Superthrive, peroxide, peat pucks, soaking in a glass of water, point up, point down, etc., etc. These techs are for the benefit of anxious humans who can’t wait 3 or 4 days for their bean$ to sit out of sight underground, doing what seeds are designed to do.
Seedlings just want warmth, water, soil and light. Give it to them and they will do the rest.
I’ve created seeds for Fleur du Mal Seeds for over a decade. I tend toward indoor sativa-dominant hybrids, many based around Cinderella, Durban and Haze lines I’ve worked for more than two decades. This work has been greatly enhanced by my friendships with some of the top boutique cannabis breeders of the past twenty years. Among them, Soul of Brothers Grimm, and Oldtimer of Underground Seed Collective were mentors that generously shared their knowledge and genetics with me and many others back in the early days of the online grower community that they and I helped found at Overgrow.com.
I offer these varieties humbly, with full acknowledgement that I stand on the shoulders of those that have come before me. My goals are simple, to bring out the best of what each parent strain offers in distinct crosses and lines; to improve and protect the diversity and integrity of the cannabis plant; and to be transparent in provenance and heritage, so that others perhaps can build upon my work some day.
I expect to introduce a few new lines in coming months in addition to the current list. I will post here as they are introduced. Regular and stealth shipping available worldwide.
