Hi team, for any who are interested I figured I would post my recipe for germinating seeds. This method is extremely reliable. 

Things you need

1. mini greenhouse with dome

2. heat mat

3. small lamp

4. small rock wool cubes, jiffy pots, or tiny pots of your medium


I soak the cubes in PH correct water, pop the seeds in the cubes, add heat and light and keep moist. 

That’s it. I don’t germinate in a paper towel or any of that stuff, just put the seed in the cube. If the seeds don’t germinate they are defective lol.

@ned Your method has the one thing that works best, it’s not complicated and I love that. Everything you said makes perfect sense. My process is very similar, just depending on the time of year I sometimes eliminate the heat mat and or the humidity dome because of my climate. The seed scuffing and overnight soak to speed germination are my two differences and prefer not to use paper towels either as planting directly into a media protects the roots better. The two mistakes I notice many growers make often is keeping the seed overly wet or planting the seed to deep. Germination is such a simple process imo and results in the 90% positive rate should be the norm with high quality seed. Thanks for sharing this brother.
