Caapi 4 strains from Seed
« on: September 27, 2010, 01:03:12 PM »
Irie,
OK so lets see how this grow-log goes.
What we have is four strains of Caapi seeds from AJ, in deepest darkest Peru!
All seeds will be treated the same. 48hrs soak in spring water with a few drops of peroxide....

White "Blancho"

"Black"

"Yellow"

After the soak the seeds will be laid on a bed of vermiculite & tented in a ziplock.

Irie,
The Black.
So soaked for 36-48hrs or until they sink.

Shake'n'bake! Dusted them with rooting powder, mostly as a anti-fungicide.

Gently resting the seeds on a bed of verm & tenting...

Back on topic please. And "therealsanango", always keep forum type gripes/complaints to PMs in the appropriate forum. This place has nothing to do with Edot and never will. You are welcome to stick around here but lets leave the Edot talk out of threads. We have a long ugly history with them/him.
If the original members don't mind, I am thinking of deleting the past few posts as they have nothing to do with this thread. I guess I will leave it for Stonehenge, do what you wish with this one man. Given time, I would likely just delete them.

Enough said, thanks,

-Kemp

I tend toward live and let live when it gets to off topic stuff unless its getting negative or attacking someone. I will agree this was headed that way so i went ahead and zapped out the off topic stuff. I don't feel like any of you were trying to break rules or do anything bad. Often times mods and admin have to make decisions on borderline things. Lets try to stick to the topic at hand if we can.

Caapi eedusuallytakes somewhere from 7-16 days, soI'm thinking he is probably just beginning to see sprouts... or should be soon.

Zaka, why the seeds are taking too long time to germinate? that's the only seed germinating from all the strains? here in the amazon floor it germinates in 10 days and in 20 days in a healthy plant.
maybe not using the proper soil, it has to be similar to the amazon soil, the place where you are growing your virolas look a very fertile soil.

Irie,
Well I don't check them too often, but peeked this morning and saw more sprouts, will post photos in a day or so!
The soil here is extra fertile, with our volcano just a couple of miles down the road!
Up-date soon!

Zaka, what do you put under the seeds? is that some form of perilite? and do you just mist the seeds everyday or what? I am interested in your treatment of them because you have gotten such good results. I at one point had some Cappi seeds but could never get them to germ.
