Recently started germination of 4 seeds. Soaked seeds for 16 hours until they sunk then transferred to paper towel method which I now have in between 2 plates underneath a warm bulb. 

Haven't got a propogator or heat pad so I've taken to filling a hot water bottle wrapping it into a towel and placing the plate on top to keep the heat. Has anyone had success with this?

I checked on them earlier and one has slightly popped while the others haven't so I'm wondering whether to plant the one that's popped or can I wait for the others to pop until i use it? 

 

Any help would be appreciated. This is my 2nd grow but my 1st was a bit of a disaster so I'm anxious to not fuck this one up!! 

Bongin

First of all welcome to Percy’s mate. Sounds like all you really need is patience. I don’t know where you are but if I use the paper towel method To germinate I don’t use heat. Our house is about 24c and that’s plenty for germination. Let the seeds form a tap root about a centimeter or two and then plant the root pointing down and gently water.... done. Then the fun starts. All the guides are here and ask questions if you need anything. Best way to grow is start a diary here. We can help you along the grow like that.

Thanks for the reply mate.

I'm in the process of starting a diary too. Didn't do one the first time around but probably best as it didn't go well lol. 

Anxious to start and excited to share mate. Thanks again.

@new-at-this Welcome mate, I can see us changing your username pretty soon 😉 lol

Heat isnt needed unless you're in winter mate. Just room temps works fine. They most important thing is to keep the seed damp. 

I soak mine in water for a few hours, then plant them straight into coco. They always pop Smile Get rid of the extra heat and they will be fine

@macky lol it was my wifes choice!

Really appreciate all the advice. I've just unwrapped the towel and placed it in its dome into the tent. Thermometer says 25C so hopefully should be fine. I'll update when fully popped. In middle of starting a diary so please hope you check it out. 

My first grow was with Miracle Gro soil ( I know, amateur much?) and I messed up when I was drying so lost bout 9 oz of bud. Was heartbreaking lol. This time...no Miracle Gro, only Biobizz All Mix and proper drying racks so hopefully should fare better this time.
