Germination trouble?

I am trying to germinate some ILGM LSD Autoflower.

Put the seeds into Fox Farm soil in small cups this past Sunday. Misted the soil with a spray bottle and put a smsll plastic bag over each to create a little greenhouse effect. Put them under the grow lights.

So far nothing.

Before with Photo seeds they came up in only 2-3 days.

Do Auto require something different?

If this isn’t right any advice for retrieving the seeds and trying something different?



Nope. Seeds are seeds. I’ve had seeds that have taken 8 to 10 0days to come up. Have patience.


Should be the same for auto and photo seeds, but some times it just takes a while for them to break ground.

At a week, I would take my tweezers or something pointy and VERY slow and gently start uncovering the seed. If i see any site of a white tap root, i stop, cover it back up and wait.
If i fully uncover it and it hasn’t even popped open after a week, then I’d called it trash. :confused:


Can take a bit of time.


Thanks all.

The way I like to germinate seeds is the way someone showed me on here.
Make sure the water pH is well couple of driplets of hydro peroxide in a 1 1/2 Rubbermaid with the seal cap. I did six seeds three different rubbermaids. Would I read the hydroperoxide help soften the shell and produced little rat tails. Then just this morning I just transplanted them into a fox farm soil concoction.
I would highly suggest next time try just the water method once you see rat tails in about 48 hours use a spoon and gently put them in a finger hole in the soil and gently put some soil and water throw it in your tent. That’s at least what I did. My success rate with ILGM seed so far for germination 16 for 16. Hope this helps

Maybe it’s cooler this time around then when you germd the others.


Make sure the soil is warm enough. I use a seedling mat when necessary in my cool basement.


This what i was thinking. I also pregerminate, so not familiar with the plant and pray timeline.

Warm and wet and they will usually pop within 2-5 days.


lmao, I do see a lot of this and now it has a name :metal:
