Cannabis seed popped qhite liquid

what just happened. milky white semen looking substance in germination glass .

the title says it all. i hate to use the reference of semen but it truly looked like semen. slightly stringy/snotty and the water was slightly opaque.

i would say it had something to do with the cup or the water BUT i had 6 other cups germing 6 other strains right next to the offender. 22 seeds in total 7 strains in total and one goes all gross on me??

i poured it out onto a black tshirt so i could try to get a look at what it was and it dispersed into little flakes on the tshirt. felt almost waxy. resiny sorta.

the offender strain was Sour kosher by DNA. 4 seeds. they all seem to be germing ok but now I’m worried that they got some bacteria/fungus. i transferred them to a new cup with new water with a touch of h202 in it to hopefully clean them up.

and sorry i woulda taken pictures but I’m scared to take pics of germing seeds for fear of wrecking germ rates with the flash. i know i coulda taken one without the flash but that takes time dialing shit in and i felt i didn’t have time! lol i was so panicked!

anyone ever experience anything like this?

and on the same sorta note. i recently had 3/4 a batch of clones go face up on me and when i was inspecting them for roots i noticed this clear gelatinous slime in all the big air pockets in the root riot cube? i assume this is some sorta bacterial colony? i dip my clones in great white after clonex I was assuming this was the offender in this situation but now I’m not so sure?

i always use h2o2 when i pop seeds – its probably unnecessary but it’s piece of mind, as far as the problems goes – no clue. I’d guess the cup was the offender and not the seeds. Sounds like bacterial growth. If I had to guess, it would be the bad kind unless you were aerating the water somehow. Chances are the plants will be fine IMO. Not sure about your clones, sounds similar though.

It’s very easy to have dead spots (no O2) in aerated water where bad bacteria can grow – bad bacteria tend to stink up the place.

lol i had it inside a cardboard box with the flaps closed. i got some houdini cum if thats the case!

it was only 24 hours too.

this one really has me stumped. i mean its gotta be some sort of micro bug but which kind and how so fast?

flash = light, roots don’t like light, the little nubs sticking out I’m sure dont appreciate getting all blinded! its probably no biggy but i just know i took like 15 pics with the flash on of some dazy jones and got the worst germ rates I’ve ever had. nothing different then a couple weeks before besides strain and not wanting to put any blame with devils harvest I’m assuming it was my fault. just going to be more careful next time unless i hear of more issues with Dazy jones.

Don’t blame what ever issue you have on light hitting your roots.

That is another “Pot Myth” that keeps getting told over and over.

I have grown Many plants out in a clear Snapple Bottle. I watched the roots the whole grow. Maybe 25-30 plants grown in Snapple. never an issue.
Clear Pots/Light on Roots. It’s just BS.

You are barking up the wrong tree.

You ever sleep walk?

lol,I cannot believe the crazy thoughts that some people have and I just have to laugh.
I don’t think that is the reason for your germination rates.
You’re simply germinating wrong.
Try germinating right into your grow medium and I can guarantee you that you will have a very high germination rate.

lol YES i used to sleep walk bad when i was on ambien.

nowadays tho. you need to sleep to sleep walk. 5 month old baby keeps me from sleeping most the time lol

all i can think is that maybe i cleared my throat when i was dropping the beans and a tiny little goober found a home in the cup? idk it was so weird. and sour kosher. of all strains for it to happen too. the one i needed to make 4 separate orders to get only 4 seeds!! bah i hope they are ok!

and awesome about the light. I’ve had roots grow out into my saucers before and never really seemed to mind, i guess it would make sense if light didn’t bug them that much

i used to do that and i got sick of digging up seeds to cut them open when a breeder decided to send out a batch a bit early to make demand (most batches off seeds nowadays)

I’ve been gettin pret near 100% except for dazy jones. she went 2/10 anything by bodhi or 303 is 100% in 24 hours, DNA is usually about 90% or so. usually 1 who doesnt make it. AND cali connect is 50% if I’m lucky most of the time. boss hog is actually the only cali connect strain Ive successfully germed.

that batch of dazy jones just scared me away from using a flash on em is all. i still get near 100% i just dont chance taking pics. ever use a flash to charge a fishing lure? a lot of energy is released in that one little millisecond. like ALOT. more then a 1000w for sure. by a long ways. go take a pic with your flash on in your room, which light over powers? the flash every time for at least 10 feet. idk id rather just be safe then sorry with the rare beans I’ve been germing as of late

Seeds crack, then rot (soft white stuff inside shell)?

Have you tried the paper towel method ? Wring out a paper towel so it’s not dripping, put seeds in it, fold it over, put them in a ziplock bag. I always blow into the bag, but that may or may not be a good idea and isn’t necessary just part of my tradition. Anyway seal the bag up with some air in it and then check on it every 12 hours or so refreshing the air and spraying with a TINY burst of water IT the paper towel is getting dry. Unfold and check for sprouting seeds and VERY carefully pull them off the paper towel. In same cases the tap root will have grow through the paper towel (which is probably the main disadvantage of this method) and you will need to tear away a little paper towel or just be extra careful and the tap root will pull away from the paper towel. You could use scissors to cut away some paper towel as well as having some paper towel on the tap root won’t hurt. Then drop them in soil or rockwool or coco or whatever you are using.

Then I put the bag someplace dark and not cold. A desk draw should work. I’ve seen people stuff the bag under a cushion and get decent enough germ rates. On top of something mildly warm like a refigerator is ok, but you don’t want to take a chance with too much heat as that will kill them and room temp is good enough germ.

I supposed it could be your seeds suck too, but it’s probably your seedlings not getting enough air because your medium is too wet.

thanks, i thought i should mention this is happening with jiffy peat pellets.

that white stuff would be the seeds endosperm. the seeds food supply. so lets figure out why your seeds won’t complete germination. if you are using peat pellets resist the urge to pull the seed out to check on it. you are only damaging it. if you have any pics, that would be a good start. what variety are you growing? how old are the seeds? are you soaking them and then planting them?

Assuming you know what you are doing & knowing that most seeds pop right pretty easily with just a little moisture, I would place my bet on faulty beans.
