How do you make sure the seeds you sell are in optimal conditions?
At Dinafem Seeds, we carry out highly meticulous selection, storage and packaging processes that guarantee the quality and the conditions of our seeds:
- Selection: Only the best seeds, the ones that look good and seem right for storing after the cleaning and removal of debris and other impurities, are selected.
- Storage: Selected seeds are stored in silica gel-filled glass containers with a thermo-hygrometer that registers the mix/max values inside in order to keep track of the temperature and humidity variations within the containers. The silica gel keeps the air inside dry at a relative humidity of 30 %. Those jars are placed in special fridges equipped with a pump for keeping the air dry and prevent the deterioration of the cardboard packs.
- Packaging: The selected seeds are then placed inside Eppendorf tubes or vials –we were in fact the first seed bank to use this cannabis seed packaging method-. Later on, a small piece of polyurethane foam is put inside too in order to separate the seeds from the silica gel. This also helps keep the seeds as dry as possible. The silica gel has a colour-change system thanks to which controlling and regulating the humidity levels is far easier.
