Autoflower germanation

Hey guys,
I usually grow photos without issue. Decided to give autos a try after a friend recommended it to me so I bought a few seeds. I figured I would have some questions in a few weeks but not this early. Is their a different way you are suppose to germinate autos? I put my seeds in water for a day and then go with the paper towel method. No problem with photos but I am looking at 0 for 2 with the autos. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Is their a different process that works better for autos?

I have never had luck with the paper towel method. After cup i go into soil in the grow box under 18-6 lighting

Welcome to the community I’ve always just germinated autos the same way as photos. I’ve just stick with what works for me paper towel method. Good luck
