I’m not sure what the cause is. Could be bad seeds/genetics or me doing something wrong. Had a few unsuccessful germinations via coco pod method, peat pod/Start, and paper towel in a ziplock on top of my computer lol. A lot of other folks do not seem to have a problem with germination.
These seeds are from Barney’s Farm via Seedsman. I do not add anything to the germination process. I would say that it appears the germination and growth seems to be a lot faster in the Start compared to being inside the Grobo.
Although two different strains, here are 2 plants on day 12, one germinated inside the coco pod/Grobo and one germinated inside the peat pod/Start:
