Third grow appears to be healthy and looking good at this point. First two attempts were started using the shot-glass method to stimulate the seed to develop taproots and then transferred to pod. Both failed. Third attempt was done by the book and seed was put in pod from the start and all is looking good. As for me, I’m sticking with this method. Also very satisfied with Pacific Seeds as the first three seeds have at least developed roots.
Same exact experience here. I just don’t understand how people have success germinating it outside the coco pod!
