Ok so that is odd, this is the second time I have made this post the first one has just vanished....but anyway. I have germed thousands of seeds so I am not new to this, but my germ rates on these good seeds I am buying now is way low. Is this normal? This last run I put down 35 of them, and at 7 days I now have 8 viable sprouts. And really once you get past a week you aren't goign to get much more, maybe a stragler or two left but after 7 days they are pretty much done. I thought with these better strains I would get better results, especially paying $15 a seed from Herbie's for really good strains. I put them straight into soil, mist daily to keep top wet and cover with a black sheet in my veg room where it is 80/55. When I see the first sign of them popping move them under the T5 at at least 12 inches away from the bulbs. Way back when I used to water germ and then transplant, but honestly that should really not matter. I might go back to that just to see if there is a difference, but I would have no idea why there would be. Might try another place or something to buy from. No clue why I can't get at least 70-80% of them to sprout, and about 50% to stay alive. I am at half that. I so need to build a cloning setup, these seeds are annoying me.
