Cold start seeds?

So ive been told by a couple older growers that u can cold start ur seeds in a wet paper towel in the fridge and it will make them a little tougher? Is this true and if so what are the benefits?

Never heard of that one.
Always start at 75-80 deg
They need the warmth to initiate the germination process.

Anyone here soak their seeds in a peroxide/water mix before putting them in papertowels?

Lol there are so many ways to do it. I use a paper towel soaked with clonex nutrients. Or rockwool cubes in solution with nutrients. I feed my seedlings the second they are sprouted until the are harvested. I feed from seed to weed. But some people might flame me for that but i dont care. I sprout in 65% light also. I never do dark sprouting but there always in light. Never had an issue. In 20 yrs. I do like i do and not what others do. I try the opposite of what everone does.
