This is how we germinate our seeds, we have a VERY high degree of germination success for any seeds we crack unless the seeds are garbage. When germinating our seeds you MUST follow these steps and have them picture documented if something goes wrong, then we WILL replace them. If not!

Wait for seeds to germinate – let seeds FULLY germinate in the paper towels, this means until the seedling has completely pushed off its shell and you see green cotyledons.
Plant Seedlings in desired Substrate, my preference is to then put them in Root Riot or Rapid Rooter Plugs and let the roots grow into these for ease of transplantation later.
