First time grower and I’m giving myself anxiety with not knowing if what I’m doing is correct as I still haven’t seen any true life.
I started to germinate two seeds, one amnesia haze auto and one northern lights auto. Both were put into a cup of tap water for about 30 hours, both sunk to the bottom. Neither had cracked yet. Transferred them to a wet paper towel between two plates and placed on top my CCTV box for heat. Both cracked after about 48 hours. Continued checking daily and one had begun to consistently grow its tap root to around half an inch whereas the other seemed to stop growing at around 2mm.
I planted both in coco, the one that was growing it’s tap root eventually sprouted after 7 days but only popped its cotyledon leaves and never grew more than half an inch tall then died. I dug up the other seed and discovered it had not changed at all since planting.
I’ve just started to germinate two more seeds, one more northern lights auto and a blueberry auto. I started these by putting in a glass of tap water with a PH of 6 and TDS of 100. After about 18 hours I transferred to jiffy peat pellets (expanded using water heated to 27 degrees celcius, same PH and TDS) and put in the supplied humidity enclosure and placed on a seed heat mat. Temp inside the enclosure is around 30 degrees with about 60% RH. It’s been about 4 days now and I’m still yet to see any sign of sprouting.
I should add it’s winter here so I’m heating my tent with an air heater on a timer and built in thermostat. Tent temperatures average around 23 degrees celcius. Tent humidity is around 50%.
Just wanting to know if I’m doing things correctly as it’s my first time so I don’t know what to expect. Should I just be more patient or am I doing something that’s killing the seeds?
