      Hi there! I commented on one of your other videos too with questions. This doesn’t concern law, but temperature and your awesome ice method. I live in South Central PA, and I began germination too late in spring. I also didn’t have much info at first, just trial and error. However, Your site has been the most informative by far! Anyway, I have two huge packages of organic culinary seeds that are completely viable. Also picked up some black swan seeds from home Depot! I’m planting in containers– 5 g at the least. Soil is a mix of organic potting soil, peat moss, sand, PERLITE and rocks for drainage. I did mix a handful of cow manure even tho later I read that you do not suggest this. Out of three, One container of two sprouts is surviving on my balcony using the ice method to keep things cool .. the other container was killed because during transplanting I damaged the root system. The second pot, it’s still on my front porch but the sprout looks half eaten/ half wilted. I am using netting so if something did eat it, it must have been insects. I have two more peat pots germinating now inside under a lamp. So I’m going to try to do things right this time.. no cow manure. Also no miracle grow. I did add some of that to the pots. I bought some tomato fertilizer but I’m going to exchange it for guano or what do you think I should get? Please help! If I can get just one plant to mature and flower this season I will be happy. They just don’t seem to be growing fast at all.
      How often am I supposed to be putting Ice on the netting? I’ve been doing this twice a day: first thing in the morning, and mid after noon. Won’t this method end up drowning my poppies??! They like cool, dry conditions. They are getting cool but the ice does melt. ?? I do not water them using anything else though! 😓

        Ok, did you put any Slug Bait down like SLUGGO? I know, you won’t see them, but they are VERY TINY (not the average Slug) and they match the color of the soil, and only come to feed at night.
        Also, did you cover the top Layer of Soil with Perlite? THIS IS ABSOLUTELY VITAL!!
        It not only reflects light back onto your Sprouts (Which require Light), but it also deflects HEAT since it’s WHITE, whereas Soil is DARK. Lastly, it retains moisture from escaping the Soil, AND it will keep little “Moisture loving” critters away from your sprouts since all moisture passes by it, thus repelling any Slugs naturally.
        Now, the ICE METHOD, is supposed to be a SOLID, Shallow Block of Ice (use a tin Pie Pan or whatever baking Pan you might have that you can add a couple inches of water to).
        Place it over the Pot so it COVERS the WHOLE diameter of the exposed top of the Pot, so to create a “refrigeration effect“.
        Yes, it will melt, but it will melt MUCH slower if it’s a SOLID Piece (just a scientific fact), with PERLITE on the top of your Soil to reduce radiant heat.
        It won’t “drown” your poppies if your Soil is well draining. They need constant moisture when sprouting anyways.
        Poppies Flop over Naturally, and are Slow Growing until they start Flowering. –
        I cover this in another Blog Post and in one of the Videos HERE in THIS Post.
        Thanks!

    Regarding your reply to my comment on Reddit, this Article of yours actually does make some sense, but still a very grey area. I guess it just depends on each person’s intent and/or opinion.

    Good write-up though. Thanks

      Agreed.
      The only reason for our mention of “Intent” was to help answer the question as to why there is so much Confusion on this matter (of whether or not they are Legal to Grow).
      Since one’s “intent” directly effects how they go about searching for Information (in regards to their Legality). Which leads to how they go about finding information, and the difference between the two kinds of Opposing (yet reputable) information can be found.
      We weren’t referring the any Law (i.e.: “Criminal Intent”).
      In fact I don’t believe we even used the word “Criminal” anywhere in this Post.
      We were just using the word “Intent” as a Descriptive word, in order to simplify the reason why some people think it’s LEGAL to Grow, and why some think it’s Illegal.
      I hope that makes sense.
      Thanks for the info.
