25+ Year old seeds

Postby DoseThemAll » Sat Dec 10, 2016 9:15 pm

Just over a year ago i was gifted some seeds from a guy in Oregon. Guy didn't know what they were but told me he wouldn't have saved him if it wasn't fire. 8 strains from the early 90's, numbered 1-7 and OR. Roma. all in what appear to be pristine condition.

I tried to pop a couple with no success. I scuffed the outside on some as well.
Having a limited amount of each, I have been hesitant on experimenting too much, so I was hoping someone with more experience could offer me some suggestions.

GBA?

Hey Scarlet,

I've tried using a cup of water as well as a paper towel with no luck.

After a couple google searches I'm thinking I might try GBA. I think I might even have some laying around somewhere.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated :)

Oh sorry, I was mistaken, I am refering to GA3, Gibberellic Acid.

GA3 helps I've ran 1/2 with and w/o before with noticeable results, give humic and fulvic acids a try, seems to really help with old beans 25+ years tho they would've have to been stored exceptionally well

I dropped a couple singles with no luck. I have some GA3 in my shopping cart so maybe after I am done with this tester batch I can invest the proper time and space into them. If I manage to sprout some, I will be sure to update this post :)

Man, that's a shame. I hope you'll have better luck next time you attempt this. It's theoretically possible to get a sprout from those, right?
