At this point, I think that anyone who is growing Seed Junky’s beans is doing the community a service by telling us your experience. It’s becoming more and more apparent that Seed Junky is releasing a number of strains that have a high proclivity to hermie - and for a breeder that sells some of their strains for well over $500/pack, this is very wrong.
Worth noting, Seed Junky is one of the very few breeders that will never replace any of their seeds for any reason… Perhaps their name should be Junky Seed Genetics, amiright?!
Spoiler Alert: I’m a little over 2 weeks into 12/12 with 8 out of 11 of the seeds I germinated, so I already know the answer to the subject title, as do those that I’ve been sharing this grow with in a PM. If you already know…
OK, to get started, this is the pack:
The pack cost $550 + shipping. There were 12 seeds in the pack, but 1 was crushed. No use in complaining, though (see above).
The seeds were not very impressive. They were smallish and light colored, but this should go to show you that size and color doesn’t always indicate viability.
As I often do, I started them in paper towels using my vertical hanging method…
48 hours after placing them in the paper towels, we have activity with most of the beans:
And here they are 72 hours after hitting the paper towels:
11 of 11 germinated. The 2 shortest ones caught up rather quickly, which I’ll show you below, but here are the biggest 9 (still 72 hours after hitting the paper towels)…
And here’s all 11 - less than 5 full days after hitting the paper towels:
That arrow points to the last one to germinate, and it was also the last one to be placed into my cloning/seedling bucket. I point to it so you can see how it progresses when compared to the others, which all appeared to be more vigorous from the start.
OK, that’s enough to get this thread started. I’ll post updates later today or tomorrow.
