pan cyan question
    #3347584 - 11/11/04 05:50 PM (12 years, 29 days ago)

i am going to start growing pan cyans. i am going to use finch seed to grow it off of. i know you are supposed to boil the seed for 45 min-1 hour and then let the seed sit and soak up the water, but how long would you guys recommend letting it sit to soak the water up. thanks

I wouldn't boil it that long maybe 30-45 mins at most, just boil it until you see that the seed level has raised inside the pot significantly. Don't do it too much or they will burst and lose their water. I usually do em for 30 mins, if you don't boil them to their full water holding capacity they will suck up any remaining water while in the jars which is very good.

I think you have it backwards, and your boil times are a bit long..

Let sit soaking in water ~12-24 hours. I have to use closer to 12, because my seed is very verile... they're beginning to sprout at 24hrs.

Then boil 25 - 35 mins, or just until a few of kernels start to burst. You have to check it every few minutes by taking a spoonful out. Remove from heat, load into strainer and let drain 15 - 30 mins. Drain well. Load jars. PC. Inoculate. Wait. Wait some more. Joy.

:wink:
