Here’s a tip, Gmann… If I was you, I would start now:
Check out Method 4/Method 5… Either the paper towel or cup of water methods.
If I was you, I would start germinating a seed now… if you don’t see any sign of life in your pod by the time the new seed germinates, switch them out. You will have a guaranteed sprout then.
If you wait too long, the seed turns black and decays/decomposes, it will be risky to use the same cocopod again. But if your seed isn’t doing anything, I would say you’re safe to re-use the same cocopod.
Good job pushing it up, it definitely needs to be flush with the lid or you’ll have problems. This actually could possibly have added to oversaturation which means less oxygen in the environment could have occured. No oxygen to the seed probably hurts it.
If I was you I would wash my hands to avoid bacteria, then give the cocopod a good pinch/squeeze under the lid to get the excess moisture off the bottom of the pod to get some more air flowing in there and start drying it out a little. Moving it up will help
