Seed opens, but then closes back again

  1. So here's the problem. I'm germinating two seeds (different strains) using the paper towel method (in two different towels). In just about 24hr both of them opened. 6 more hours later the one got it's taproot pop out. But the other didn't change at all. 76hrs have passes and the first one is now in soil and is doing great. But the second one even CLOSED ITSELF. o_O

    I'm afraid I might have overmoisturised the paper towels and might have drowned it.

    My question is - Is it still alive? Have you ever seen a seed closing itself? What to do now?
  2. not all seeds are strong enough to germinate. sounds like you got a dud.
    And as far as overwatering a seed...I germinate my seeds by floating them in a jar of water for 48 hours.
