Hello. I am having the worst time trying to germinate these seeds. I watched the videos, it seems like I’m doing everything right, but I still haven’t been successful. I got a tiny taproot on one, but it never popped the seed, I assumed it was defective, threw it away and planted another one. That one hasn’t even given me a taproot yet. These are indica seeds–Northern Lights x Big Bud Autoflower.
I’m concerned so I’m wondering what I should do. I check on it three times a day. Nothing. I’m considering maybe putting the plate on a heating pad? Maybe it isn’t warm enough? I’m in New England and the seasons are changing, fall is in full swing here.
The sativa haze strain I started with it looks fine. It gave me a nice long taproot, really quickly. Now it is producing a fourth set of tiny leaves. Yesterday I transplanted it into a nice big terracotta pot because the root structure rose to the top of the solo cup already. That one germinated and seems super happy under these really hot fluorescent lights in the kitchen here, so I’m worried if I put the Indica seed I’m trying to germinate on a heating pad it will be overkill.
I dunno. If you have any thoughts or tips, please comment.
