Default Starting seeds

I've read through a ton of threads of all the different methods some of you use. I am going to pop seeds for the first time soon, and have a few questions. I've only gone from clone so this is new to me. I don't want to screw up from the get go.
Out of the different methods, I'm thinking either to plant in rapid rooters, or a soil, but have yet to find what kind of soil I should plant in. Have seen FFOC mentioned but not sure what that is. I grew last season in FFOF, and remember reading that its too hot for seedlings. Also seen MG seed starter. What do you guys use?
Thanks

miracle grow seed starting mix is great.

me personally germ right in the soil itll get its whole life. everything i have now was germed right in MG prenuted soil with no issues what so ever.

i have also germed right in FFOF it seems hotter than the MG and a couple plants showed slight burn.

i am switching to a custom happy frog mix that ill be making, but ill germ right in plain Happy Frog.

no paper towels or soaking for me either, jsut right into the soil.

wet paper towel in a baggy set on a heat pad, Usually pop in less than 3 days. Had one pop today in less than 20 hours. After they pop I put em in Jiffy peat pots. Good Luck

Hi Ston-loc, have enough opinions yet?

I read Mandalaseeds.com on planting seeds and have had 100 % success. They make sense to me.

Bwahahahahaha, I joined the site just a few months after that and never ran upon it. That's awesome.

Rose, thanks. That was a great read. Didn't think to scroll around their site for that info. So I'm going straight into soil. No rappid rooters, no paper towels. Just not decided on what kind of soil yet. I'm going to grow them out in FFOF, but they dont recommend that for their seedlings. Not sure if i wanna drop $ on a whole bag of FFLW for just the 10 seedlings. Hmm... I guess I wasnt too clear with my question initially. Not asking methods really. Mainly if you grow straight from soil, what soil do you use? And is FFOF too hot for seeds? I remember reading that, but now cant seem to find it. Only seeing its not on the list of recommended on the mandala site

Hey Ston-loc!

I too go by Mandala's site and plant straight into soil. The soil i germed in this go round is pro-mix bx with added dolomite lime, ratio is 1 cup per CF. There are some slightly larger chunks in this mix and i was careful to move them out of the way so the seedlings could break thru. When i get my seed order, im going to screen it out to a lighter mix for seedlings so i dont run into this problem again.

BTW, did you get that seed order yet? Im holding off til March 2nd to order. Great promo at Attitude that im going to take advantage of. Still can't wait to do that satori grow-off! Any new details yet?

I am stoked as well! Got a lot of great genetics on the way!

I will find a way to post pics of "Drfting's Germination Station" and start a thread. Many people built them before the crash, and i lost the sticky for it during that time. Ive upgraded to t5's since then, and the outcome was astounding! Ill have it up by tonite!

I soak for a night in water then plant straight into BlackGold soil (which works for me everytime). Picked up a bag of MG Seedling starter Mix, since Hammy gives them mad props, will try them and report back. Don't think there will be any problems tho...

EDIT: as of 06/12/2012 all seeds have started using the MG seed starter mix.

Default Trouble starting seeds in soil

I seem to be having an issue getting the remaining beans to pop. I've repotted 2 of them again tonight, crossing my fingers. Any tips? They all sunk in water and I put them straight into the soil which was watered and warmed.

I noticed one had sprouted. Has a pretty long white growth on it. I assume this is the taproot and it should be pointed down? It was pointed up, so I pointed it downward with tweezers. Question though is, would light being on the tap root cause any damage?

Can you sprinkle some soil on top? I would do that.

imo that was a mistake, unless over 3/4" or more of taproot but again imo i dont think they should of gotten that long out of the medium anyways (plus its still pointed up, if you notice picture). i like to germ right int he soil and let nature do its thing.

It's not too late too turn it back up the way the picture shows. I read that if the taproot is pointed up, it'll bury the seed further into the soil. I guess that was wrong information? The taproot is atleast that long. How long after the taproot grows does the stem begin to grow?

leave it be you keep touching the sprouting root and it will die. most the time seeds will straighten up and grow the way they should grow. Their are chemicals in the root tip and the meirstem that dirrect each to grow the dirrection it should.
