Is germinating different for hydro? I know that for soil, most people put their seeds in moist paper towels and wait till they pop, then they are put into the soil, root-y thing down. for hydro is it different? Should I still germinate with paper towels before I place the seed in the rockwool? should I start the seed only with distilled water? Should I keep that water at a 5.5ph? I have had three seeds in rockwool for about 4 days now, and none have popped out from under the surface. One of them, I germinated a bit in a paper towel before placing inthe rockwool, but the other two I just put into the rockwool and hoped for the best. They are sitting under a 400w hps light but covered with a tuperware top, not sealed, so it is shady and not too bright. That way they get some warmth too. Am i doing something wrong? Is there a special wayto germinate when using hydro?
