    Hey guys, i germinated seeds last saturday(6 days) and everything but one strain was in soil by tuesday(3 days germing). I have 3 seeds of Grape Snow Train germing and one finally cracked yesterday morn. I planted it last night. But the other two are worrying me. They've been in paper towel for 5 days. Any tips or suggestions? Been looking around but other then breaking them open idk what to do

    Not a fan of towels but seeds can take 10 days or more if it is the cool season.

    Oh yea, also been keeping them between 70-85 degrees. P.s. The seeds are much more mature and large compared to every other seed i germed

    Burpee 36 cell self watering tray, rapid rooters or soil, heat mat 100% success

    Well i waited another day and nothing so i decided to crack the 2 seeds open. Used a brand new blade and went around the rim and then used my teeth to pop half the shell off. Inside both of em was alive n healthy but the seed shell was harder then an egg shell after almost a week germinating. So i put the seeds in soil. Gunna wait a week to see if they pop. If not i'm gunna germ 2 more seeds, scarify the outside of the seeds, use very diluted peroxide and keep em around 80 degrees in fresh towels every 2 days. I'll post a pic if those 2 i forced poped work out

    think they might not like dioxins, formeldehyde bleach furans and stuff?
    a cup of water, direct to moist soil etc has always been tops for me.

    everything i'v been popping was new strain for me so towels gave a piece of mind but next go if these don't pop i may as well

    so they actually popped and are doing better then the one that cracked on its own before planting. They both had a tiny bit missing on their cotyledons but are growing.

    That was over a month ago? How long did it take for them to germ and sprout?

    Today would be day 15 since starting germination

    Rapid rooters are the greatest thing ever. I went 9/9 my first time cloning using them. I was having issues getting seeds to germ into FFOF soil, so the owner of my local GS showed me the rapid rooters and I had 4/5 seeds germ. Moral of my story, research rapid rooters and find out how to get you some.
