Problem #1: some beans are from 2012.... the rest are from around 2009.

Problem #2: some of these are already notoriously hard to germinate due to the sativa genes. (Murphy being Murphy these are the oldest of the two)

Problem #3: necessity for hardcore guerrilla tactics.

Problem #4: I accidentally mixed the beans together ... (but thats ok, I initially intended to cross these eventually)

 

Genetics: two strains;

 - Ileso#2 - [(Laos sativa x Vietnamese sativa) x Purple coloured Indica] x Afghan(?) - need to check notes to be sure *

 - Nat#1 - national strain (very old strain originally grown here before all the hype, so its adapted to the climate) x Lebanese

 

 

 

 

Notes:

* the exact make up should be in my previous notes somewhere. these were grown out sometime around 2009 in Barcelona.

Nice work, keeping journals!

When I still had grow rights, in 2011, I had the seeds carefully separated.
In early 2015, I had seeds left over that got mixed up as you describe.
I planted all in pots indoors, and to my surprise they all germinated!

This one flowered when the plant was 1.3 inches tall!

Yes... that one was an auto-flower, but all other seeds from this created very large plants.

This one, when harvested was one bud, the size of a golf ball (and very dense.)

You could sit them in the 'North', South' and 'magnetic null' of a bar magnet for 2 weeks and strike them.....see which ones are helped, N, S or NULL.

It's one of those it could be so's... there IS evidence indicating something but no agreed theory...

Exposure of seeds to static magnetic field enhances germination and early growth characteristics in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.).
