How Long Before My Seed Breaks Soil?

  1. I germinated a seed and got the white root thing out. I planted it in organic seed starting soil about 1/2 an inch down. I misted the soil before and after I planted it. I have 4 cfl's 67 actual watts total, and one of the cfl's is a couple inches above the soil. I planted it around 4:00 pm yesterday and it still hasn't broke soil. How long do you think it will take? I know an exact time isn't possible but just an estimate.
  2. After I planted my germinated seed it took about a full 24 hours before I saw the seed head break soil.

  3. Patience young Jedi. I usually see them pop within 48 hours, sometimes within 24, but it could take up to a week. You're doing good -- until it pops keep the soil moist but never soggy, and keep the lights on so they sprout will get energy the moment it pops through.
