Digging through the o' seed locker and ran across some Apollo 13 seeds that I received back in '02. Almost 10 years old, I assumed the germination rate might suffer, so I dropped all 35 of them in a [aper towel to see what they would do. After 36 hours, 33 of 35 are cracked and showing their intitial root...:doh:

These have been stored in an airtight container in the crisper drawer of the 'fridge.

Looks like someone digging more holes this yr. Just goes to show if you keep the seeds cool and dry they stay good along time.

Hey Hick,

I ran into a place here that carries some apollo 13 seeds... What are qualities/traits of this strain?

doc. my A13 is from a breeding project by an ols friend. It's been so long that I can't really recall all of the logistics. F4'5'6 ?? I just don't recall now. But I know they "worked" with it for awhile.
I've grown these seeds out at least 3 other times, and they were all 'pretty' consistent, stable. Only a slight variation produced two basic pheno's. One leaning a bit more toward the sativa end of the spectrum than the other. But both produced long, heavy, flavorfull colas, with a "Lemon Pledge" aroma and citrus/lemony flavor. An..."inspirational" kind of high, I guess I would call it. Not a mind racing, paranoia high, but far from the deep indica, drool on your chin, couch lock.
Umbroh..;) these were from the guy that produced that "Gorilla Arm" pheno'..:confused2: (remembering names,never been my forte')

I quickly perused my 'puter for some yesterday chef, to no avail. I know I have many of the A13, it's a matter of finding them among the hundreds maybe thousands of pictures... :eek:
