The Mad Russian's grow show

Starting 5 seeds of a strain called Crippy #3 bought by a friend off C-bay years ago from a guy called Kentucky. It will be done using a yellow cloth whetted with warm water and placed in a zip lok baggie.
If I get any that germinate they will be put in cups of perlite and peat moss. It is planned to grow organically being under compact floros for vegitative growth and a 600 watt hps for flowering.

The seeds were in fact healthy. "Crippy bud was sold at c-bay by a fella named Kentucky. A great producer of the most earthy tasting buds i've ever smoked. ""It's indica dom and scrog it for best results."
That is all the information I have found about thiese seeds.
Storage? A small plastic baggy that they came in and a drawer. I have had them only 3 years but they were given to me by a person that had them for a couple more years. I'm estimating them to be from 2000-2002.

refrigerated and sealed? My darn kids would eat em.
I have mine in either envelopes rolled and sealed or in the little plastic baggies in a tin. No problems even with the 3 year old seeds so far. I have been sent seeds that were over 16 years old in a little breeder baggie and they worked a dream (williams wonder for one)

I keep seeds in the fridge. The theory is not particularly that they keep better but when I germ them there`s more of a change in temps so they think "Ah Spring is here".
It`s only a theory but it seems to work for me.

Beautiful.

With digital photography shots that would once have been impossible without expensive equipment and special training are now commonplace.

Good luck!
