Dreamtime - 2013
 
Well I just couldn't wait any longer, I am starting a grow thread on a pack of Dreamtime seeds won in a recent auction.
Not much to show or tell yet, I got 20 seeds in the pack and I have just put 12 in water to soak for about 8 hours. After that they will be put directly into seed starting soil.

These are all of the seeds - quite a variation in sizes.

These are the seeds selected - completely random selection

Seeds are shown on 1/4" graph paper (6.35mm)
I'll keep everyone posted on their progress.

Hey Barn,

I had a question about my ss seeds seemed smaller then usual and some where light. The bw I bought about a year ago were massive and awesome silver color! Either way all of my ss came up :) I wanted to ask you is dreamtime open pollination of just like a field of strains or was it like one year man I love this afghan skunk then the next year it was like wow I found an amazing MHz and another each year and they just kept crossing great strains, or was there an exact pedigree to the dream. Thanks in advance!

I like the graph paper Barnflowers, nice touch. Dreamtime is kind of like those old mystery packs of seeds you used to see in catalogs, but with these you know what the species is, just not the variety. I've grown some out and was very happy, still have one as a mom and still have some seeds left. Good luck and will be watching.

@ weezy...here's a quote from an older Dreamtime thread about what may be in there.

I don't know any more than the next guy about the Dreamtime pack, officially it is marketed as a collection of strains. It's probably part of their process where at the end of the day all of the seeds that didn't successfully make it into proper packs go into a collection to be used as a variety pack, but that's pure speculation on my part. Lot's of folks claim to have found some real gems in these variety packs.

For myself, it should be a wonderful adventure and an opportunity to try strains that I would otherwise have to buy a whole pack.

Most people claim that seed size is not relevant and that the same plant can produce various seed sizes.

We shall see :)

Dreamtime
 
Glad to see you started this thread!! I just started 4 DT myself and will follow your thread with interest ! Yes on seed size/shape related to strain there is a correlation and these seeds show the variety well. Tapioca also made some good comments on this. Just on leaf shape alone I can see at least 3 varieties in the 4 seedlings of dreamtime I have started in soil as always. Good luck in the barn man!!:cool:
PS on seed size , true the size varies from plant to plant within a strain but each strain seems to have a signature seed type, round and black or elongated and striped etc
I have notice the dwarfish phenos seem to produce tiny seeds and the tiny seeds seem to produce monster plants. anyone else noticed such like?

Well a bit of an update, not much is going on right now.

All seeds sank to the bottom of the water at the 6 1/2 hour mark. All seeds are now in seed starting soil, bottom 1/3-1/2 has extra perlite added. Misting them morning and night.

Excited!
:)

Hi there BarnFlowers.
Hope you hit paydirt with your sewings!Good to hear they sank when they drank...always a good sign!
The whole seed size thing...it's oddities man!The whole world thrives on that stuff.
Anyways,keep us posted.Interested to see what'll spring up!

Hi Barnflowers,
Looking forward to seeing what emerges from your seeds.
I've had good experience with 'dreamtime' and got some really good quality plants.
I'm just popping 10 more at the moment(from old yellow pack)they're a bit stubborn because of age,but they're definitely stirring in their shells:).
watching with interest :).

DT8 is above soil! (almost) About 3days and 8hrs after being put in water.
