I soaked the seeds in water for just about 24 hours until they sank, then planted the seeds in jiffy cups in seedling soil that I watered first. In complete darkness. The tent has been maintaining 69/70 degrees F. The dome has had steady condensation. The soil temp according to the heating pad is maintaining between 71-73 degrees.
It’s been about 41 hours and they haven’t come through the soil yet I am wondering if I planted them too deep (about 3/4 to an inch). I was just curious as to how long they tend to take to sprout or if I should be adding light now? I keep debating turning my LED light on and keeping it about 40-44 inches above it (the recommended early stage for this light)
The soil is damp still. I am patient I just am nervous I buried them too deep or if I should have had a light on even though most say they don’t need light until they are seedlings. I don’t even know if they have fully cracked open because I put them into the soil just after they sank, they seemed maybe slightly cracked open when I took them out of the water but I was just more concerned about being gentle and not drowning them.
