So I’m not an experienced grower and not really sure if there a sort of code growers go by and stuff.

but what’s everyone opinion on seeds not popping and paying for them?

I bought a pricy pack of 6 seeds (for me they were pricy at around £60) so far only 1 of them has germinated, 1 popped up then died, looked like the seed shell choked it out or something, the rest are just sat in the dirt looking exactly the same as when they went it. Let’s say no more pop, you just paid for that pack and get 1 viable germination, should you be able to get a refund? Or is it just luck of the draw and that shit is just a possibility?

 

pretty fucking gutted tbh

Would you mind giving us a rundown of your germination process and how ya start the seedlings out?   We may be able to identify an issue and stop it from happening.   

When this kept happening to me, it turned out it was my fault.  I had a fully closed humidity dome over my seedlings.... and it was causing the plant to rot before it could break out of seed pod.    Since I stopped using a dome for seedlings, I have had no issues. Every single seed that broke the ground has grown. 

But, despite that and before I realized that's what the issue was, S.H.N. sent me a brand new pack of seeds since I had issues.   No questions asked.

@shonuff 

Very fair shout and can definitely be down to user error.

My house is cold as fuck so at the moment im

germinating in cell pots inside a propagator with a heat mat underneath. Seeds go straight into soil, watered in with ecothrive biosys, dome goes on, leave a little crack in the air vents and it’s got a fluorescent light over the top of the dome.

never had a problem germinating seeds before and normally have a great success rate, but this pack popped 6, 2 came up and 1 was fucked!

@greentomato it could be a variety of things, this is also the main reason I like to use the glass of water and paper towel method as it is easier to check on the progress of the seeds without leaving it up to fate, if I find they are not moving along as expected I can give them a little shove or bin them and not sit and wait to throw another In the glass. However some seeds I have bought in the past from not so reputable sources I have had issues with, but it's really hard to nail down what the cause may be especially if you are putting them straight into the soil without any prior soaking etc. As much as it sucks it may be best to cut your losses and start fresh, if they are a bigger seedbank or a well known seedbank check to see if they have a germination guarantee if they do give them a call and let them know you are struggling to get them to germinate, not all seedbanks will have this option but some do. Good luck!

I feel like a, like a slice of butter... melting on top of a big-ol' pile of flapjacks... yeah.

Full disclosure: I am a new  cannabis grower, but a long-time gardener. What's the temp inside your propagator on your heat mat?  How long since you started them in soil?  You mentioned you place is cols AF. It may be it will just take the others longer to germinate.  Don't throw them out just yet.
