Still in the middle of first grow season. My first batch is on it’s way outside, most are doing great so far.
Queston is on the next set. I put 7 seeds from 4 strains in water. Plan was just like round 1, to transfer if they had good tails at 48 hours. Life took over and all 7 seeds spent 72 hours in the water. I noticed several (did not take the time to record which ones) had nice tails, but they were not floating any more, but transferred all to starter pots anyway.
I now have 7 cups where 1 has come up as expected, 1 that looks like it is trying, and 5 that appear to be deader than Caesar. I believe it was last Monday when they went into the water, Thursday when they came out, and now am at about the 5 day mark of looking for signs of life.
Still puzzled by the floating as opposed to sank to the bottom of the cup. Does it mean that I killed the seed when they sink? Kicking myself for not checking them at 48 hours, that is about where round one was when I planted them and they are mostly doing good 7 weeks later.
Still have several seeds left, going to try to fill in the gaps by trying the wet paper towel method. Any suggestions are appreciated.
