'Sup GC. I discovered something interesting the other day that I thought I'd share with you. Alright so usually when I go to germinate seeds, I stick 'em in a cup of water or use the plate/towel method. Both of which will usually take around 3-5 days to germinate seeds. However I've discovered another method that takes 1-2 days, tops. Take your seeds and place them in a cup of water, but instead of leaving it in the dark or whatever, you wanna have a light on it. I grow with CFL's. & I actually discovered this by accident. What happened was, one of my seedlings sprouted, so I put some light on it. I had two seeds in a cup of water germinating, and the roots came out about a day after I had the light on the seedling. Point in case, CFL (or maybe any grow light) + water + seed = Super Fast Germination. Enjoy.
