Newly germinated seeds

  1. My seeds seem to always germinate but poping the tap root, then it grows around toward the other side of the seed it came out of. So when putting them into rockwool (or now Rapid Rooters), I always wondered whether to place the seed with the end the tail came from down, which leaves the tail itself going up, or the other way around. I have always gone with plan A on the grounds the bottom is the bottom and the taproot will find its way down. I'm wondering what others do?
  2. I personally don't pre-germinate my seeds. But it really shouldn't matter which way you put them in. The seed will figure out which way to grow regaurdless of how you place it in the rockwool.

    Good luck.
  3. I would have thought so but I keep hearing you have to plant with root pointing down even though that leaves the seed with the end the root emerged from pointing up.
  4. i think every seed i've germ'd had a pretty straight tap root so i just stuck it in there, but the seed will eventually find its way. It just might take a little longer.
  5. did you ever notice how when the plant sprouts the seed is still on the top
    so put the white part (cracked side) in the rockwool first so that the seed is pointing up and white part pointing down
