    Re
    Reminds me of cherry seeds,
    They are supposed to hit the ground then go through stratification. I think that's the word. But you can put them in the fridge for a few months.

    Some guys scuff weed seeds with like a match striker but Ive never had to take drastic measures. I can see it though now that seeds are actually spendy.

    Lots of methods work. Some breeders actually don't honor if you do not soak for 12-18 hours and don't use a damp paper towel for tap root. Its all over the place really.

    I have always used little plastic shot glasses filled with Nestle spring water and soak for max 16 hours then move to paper towel until the tap root gets 0.5-1 inch then drop it into solo cups with soilless just barely covering them.

    Now my experience with popping seeds isn't a whole lot. I have probably popped 35 seeds over a decade span and only 3 have not germinated for me. 1 was from a pack and the other 2 were at least 9 years old Blue God from Jordan of the Isles I found 2 months ago in my wife's jewelry box LOL.

    This is the last 10 seeds I did couple months ago.

    if they are old seeds you could try adding GA3 to the water when germinating just don't add too much or they will stretch like crazy

    i've always just planted my seed and watered then waited a few days, too much chance of picking up pathogens or damaging the fragile tap root and imo the only reason for soak/paper towel is impatience, i don't see any benefit unless they are like 5-10+ years old or improperly stored

    Just take the seeds and put them in your soil and keep it moist.

    Hmm tree's. You should soak apple seeds too.

    I didn't say it doesn't work did I?

    I explained what water to avoid or amend with H2O2 also.

    I wouldn't soak the beans from those breeders who say not to. Insurance.

    Please, do what makes YOU happy.

    Keep in mind that this is an open forum and people are going to post answers YOU don't like. After all it was just information I gave.
    Not like saying that our paper towel method was "Bad information."

    Mmm, seeds from various boutique breeders in your area....Ok, the point is?

    Here's some won at auction. Your listed price range is low........One is the only pack to be released.

    Nice seeds. I saw that auction... and those are worth 150. People over pay at auctions. Hope you didnt spend a load at AUCTION.

    But I know the feeling to be exclusive. Nice seeds again..

    FYI, seeds all turned out fine. The green crack has been a day behind the blue dream throughout, but both are doing well.
    Put cracked seeds in soil, the first blue dream to crack sprouted the next day, the one 3 hrs later sprouted the next day (may have planted a little deeper?) The green crack also sprouted 1 day apart starting the next day.
