Scops a sproutin

Be careful. Looks like there´s also some mold sprouting there. Or does it just look like that on the photo? 

Take off the lid and let it dry out (if it´s really how it looks on the photo) and restart the germination when the mold has dried up. If you keep up the humidity (and if it´s really mold) it´ll mess up the seeds if you don´t take off the lid.

lol yeah that's mold.

my place i guess is full of it by now so anything near it will get moldy under the right conditions, unless it's wrecked by bennies.

 

i tried sprinkling coir hoping trichoderma be in it on top of things, but gonna need to re-stock on the real thing..

h202 plus cinnamonned pots/trays seem kinda ok by now, the cinnamon be crusting up things tho...would not recommend

No worries, It´s only like two weeks now, and most of the ones that arrived are in Europe. They will arrive and both species are permitted imports. Even if quarantine opens them, they will probably pass them on. The shipping time usually take 3-6 weeks to Australia.

No, you´ll probably have to wait a while. 6-12 months minimum. Scops look pretty unique, so you have a good chance to tell them apart once they are a little bigger.

I found a label on one of the pots after all :D

 

Grafted 2 of each species.

What is actually the best age for grafting, will bigger seedlings make a bigger/better connection?

Anyone else in the US still waiting on their seeds? I feel like it normally only takes 2 weeks to get here from EU.

8 rib scop?

 

Well, if you can believe the guy who discovered and described it, then yeah, 8 rib Scop as seedling is not uncommon. That said, it´s also possible you switched the seeds. :-P Long story short, I saw the mother plant that these seeds were harvested from and they are Scops. This is not the cheapo strain that´s been going around.

I already saw the first seedlings from that strain and they are completely normal Scop seedlings so far. Ritter mentioned seedlings having more ribs and stated 7, sometimes even 8 ribs, but they drop them later on. Like I said, I saw the plants that these seeds were from and I will defend them till my last breath. It can always happen that you move a seed corn during watering, or that a different species gets into the dried seeds, but I am absolutely sure these are Scops. The seeds have a totally different size than other species, which is already a giveaway. This is a photo of the mother plant where the fruits are ripening. So yeah, not sure what´s going on with that seedling, but the strain that I sent everyone is Scop. 58ff8a30d0f07_Scop2).thumb.jpg.d17caa62cb18939e103ec0fa65e047a3.jpg

 

As a seed seller, I need to know what I have, especially after the shit show with the fake T. scopulicola seeds from Peru that happened to some of the other seed sellers. I can trace back the seeds to the very fruit, and it´s just really important to me to make that very clear. I went the extra mile to guarantee the genuity of these seeds and I spent much more than I usually do just to make sure I get excellent quality. I don´t even earn anything on these and I just have them in the shop because it´s great quality. It can always happen that you get a strange seed corn that doesn´t belong or maybe even an uncommon hybrid seedling, but I am sure about the authenticity of these. There are always seeds where you can´t be sure as a seed seller, but these were grown in Germany by a hundred percent solid grower that also had a great documentation of his whole act. If the seeds I get from Peru or Bolivia were half as good in regards to viability and documentation as these Scop seeds, I´d be delighted. So yeah, thanks for posting updates. I am sure it´s a Scop and many ribs on seedlings is not uncommon.

Haha cool, i never doubted it was scop just couldn't find any mentioning of it having 8 ribs.

I swear my pachanoi was trying to grow 10

Yeah I know. With all the fake Scop seeds on the market, I just wanted to make sure everybody knows they are legit regardless the Rib count. At that size it´s too early to tell more about the seedling, but I am sure it´ll drop the ribs later on or is a hybrid with more ribs than usual. Another possibility is that a Santa Seed corn got into the bag or into the Scop sowing area, but I think it´s probably just a rib anomaly.

My first couple of grafted trays failed because it's just not warm enough for them to take outside... So I've turned my lights on and I'll do another round of grafts in a couple of days...

I had great germination rate, thanks EG. I'll take some pics of the other varieties I grafted earlier in the year and post them in the morning...
