Customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks
5 days ago I carefully planted 5 sprouts. Out of the 5 sprouts, 1 tried to break ground but couldn’t shed it’s husk before it died. None of the others have broken ground yet, even though I’ve kept them watered with purified water. They were all laid on the ground and watered until covered with soil, then kept wet. In 5 days, I saw green on one seedling, only and saw no other green break ground.
This is the way I’ve always grown my seeds and have always had good results in the past. What can I be doing wrong? I usually plant my sprouts when they’re about 1/2" long. Should I wait longer, before I plant them? Should I give them a few more days to come up? I don’t remember it taking this long with my other ones.
