My seeds arrived today without a hitch. They will get wet by the weekend. Looks like about 18-20 beans. Nice dark seeds that are roughly half the size of average beans. I will split them in half, and will start the second half once the first batch breaks ground. Still undecided on my pollination plan. I was planning on collecting pollen from all the males, mixing it together and dusting the ladies wit it but, if most of my seeds germinate, I may just leave all males with the girls until pollination is complete. Germination rate will make the decision for me. :unsure:

I'm excited for you and good luck.

I prefer keeping it as natural as possible too. Though, once the males are spent you'll see there's no reason to keep them all the way to the end of the females cycle. A week or two after blooming, sure, but six...nah.
Yeah, my dedicated space for this endeavor will be a bit tight [4x5] but I will pull the males as soon as they are spent and it will be a great fit. I chucked my fair share of crosses but this will be a serious shift. This is [preservation] a beautiful concept, I hope my efforts will be worthy. Seeds, seeds, seeds for all my friends!
Actually, seeds were last years secret Christmas presents. Nobody attempted to return anyšŸ˜

Great to see these run!
20 in a 4x5 will be tight, 1 gallons would do it. Are ya available to water alot?! Lol.
Yep, I don't expect 100% germination and after the males are finished, probably 8-12 girls left to go the distance. If they try to take over, I'll just put half the bred females in another tent to finish. As soon as they are big enough to clone, I'll clone away and everybody gets a time change. Not gonna try to save any smoke, all the ladies with be fully seeded. That should provide us with thousands of beans in the bank!

Nepal Highland #3 update, 8 of 10 popped in a day and a half. I popped the smaller beans first and they seem to have some vigor. I'll let the second half [10 beans] get wet in the morning. This could be exciting, I'll breath a sigh of relief after I see the third set of leaves. Then we'll have one hellava start.
