How long does it take seeds pop and sprout above the medium?
If you germ them before you bury them, usually a few days
Papertowel method never fails… Get about a 1/2 in tail then plant
I plan on germinating them first, but about a few days to break the surface?
Yes sir…few days at the most, my most recent were dropped in the 4th, and up on the 8th
Don’t over water I made that mistake… They love moist and soft… And plant deep enough where friction causes shell and membrane to part from cotyladons
I usually do clones so I have both. I want to see the difference between the 2.
Clones or seeds (the 2)
I use solo’s only for the simple fact that I double cup them for ease of watering
Those will work just fine tho, I’d go a bit bigger tho…saves you from a couple transplants and stress
Thanks. Wasn’t sure but ya solo would save some time. Not totally sure about seeds. Appreciate it.
@cid . I’m usually a clone guy too
Keep us posted
I got em to sprout. It should be fun to see the difference in growth. The clones i had the last 2 times didn’t seem to be that good of quality.
I just wrote this article about popping seeds yesterday. Cotton wool is the best, although paper towels work just as well. People that drop seeds into soil and wonder why they dont germinate should read and try this method.
I did them in a cup, napkin, and then buried them after the tap root was growing. I’ve got all 4 doung well. I’m just used to clones. But, this should be fun.
