A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks

Hi. So I’ve never tried the water germination method so I figured I would give it a shot and follow instructions in the link. I soaked them for 24 hours, they finally sunk to the bottom but haven’t sprouted out of the casing yet. Do I need them to soak longer? Are they ready to plant? They look swollen and a pretty blue color.

Some wait to see the tap root before planting. Some soak for 24 hours and then use the paper towel method. Personally, I soak them until they crack open and then go straight into soil. If your seeds haven’t cracked yet, a few more hours should get them to pop.

Did they crack ?
After 24 hrs if they sunk i would place in a moist paper towel in plastic bag wnd left open for another 12-24 hours in warm dark space above 70 degrees is good
And plant when you have a tap root
The fact they sunk tells you they have swollen and will crack open soon
