I've successfully grown from clones a few times, now trying my hand at seeds but I am yet to have any success. I've so far tried paper towel, jiffy pellets, and a glass of water. No luck - though the jiffy cubes ones were old and possibly crappy seeds from a mate, and the paper towel did dry out significantly at one point. The glass of warm water produced no taproot.

Given the cost of seeds and that its hard for me to find them anyway where i am, i'm hesitant about what to try next. From what I read this is quite an easy process!

Whats your foolproof method for germination?

I'm going to try the jiffy pellets again this time with a better seed (pic related), and also the humidity dome and a heat map as its a little bit cold where i am at the moment.

Seeds are a product of sexual reproduction, and this fact alone precludes the possibility of having a fool-proof germination protocol.

Germination is largely influenced by three factors: moisture, temperature, and the availability of oxygen (seeds respirate in a manner very similar to what we do). Tweak those three factors until you're consistently getting 90% germination. Speak to your seed provider for advice about germination.

put them out over the winter and let them germ by their own in spring.

Get some kind of shallow dish/tupperware that you're able to loosely cover with a lid or maybe tinfoil, but not airtight. Wet a paper towel or napkin; put in the shallow dish. Place your seeds on the wet paper towel/napkin, fold napkin over. Loosely cover your dish/tupperware. Put this somewhere warm: like on top of the power source of a desktop computer that is always on or the top back of a refrigerator. Check every 12 hours or so, if your napkin/paper towel begins to dry out add some water. DO NOT LET DRY OUT! Once your seeds start to crack and sprout "tails" put em in dirt.

You are really overthinking it

Place seeds at an appropriate depth in soil, cover with soil. Keep moist. Keep at correct temps. You now have seedlings. The paper towel method and such is pretty much never used by anyone other than stoners with no horticultural experience

Do what this guy says, save I use a small cigarette tin >>147250

I would also add you don't want to water them when you plant them, and when they sprout water them infrequently. It seems counter intuitive, but it works. They seem very easy to drown.

Also, use kira white thunder seeds, they are very forgiving.

Get yourself a tray of 6 cubes. Put soil in them. Put the seeds in put your water in make sure it's moist. Cover up with Saran Wrap and put it in warm environments above 70 if you can. Make sure to keep watering it don't let it get dry but don't soak it too much. Saran Wrap will help keep the moisture in and the warm environment will help your seedlings hatch and sprout.

I soak em in water overnight then put it in a wet paper towel with a little heat until they crack, then put them in rockwool cubes because I grow in hydro. Never had a problem.

Thank you all for the advice!

I was definitely over thinking it.

I followed >>147244 , and i have a few healthy seedlings that have new growth appearing. Those few days of germination were a lot warmer than usual for this time of year so I think the extra heat helped.
