I doubt if they are too wet to at least crack. I've germinated in straight h2o, just drop em in and wait for them to split, and plant. (not my recommended method)

Whats your temps?? Sometimes a nice warm bed helps.

Plant 1/2" deep in quality potting soil (NOT miracle grow), on their sides.
Keep the soil lightly moist.

how long did u wait while they are germinating. You put them on a plate between the wet paper towels and then what i do is cover the plate with saran wrap and put them in a dark spot at room temperature or a littlee warmer. The paper towels should not be soaked just wet enough that if u squeeze them lots of water doent drip off them. My seeds took about 2 days then i saw little white roots coming out the cracks and thats when u plant them. I think that is your problem your seeing they cracked so your planting them right away and not waithing for the root tip to come out. I could be wrong if you let them keep germinating after they cracked.

Thanks ganja'. That is the "prefferred method" that I referred to. But failed to include it.
Right into the dirt, no fuss no muss, no extra steps in handling the delicate embryo.
I will, occasionally soak them overnite, 12-24 hours in water. I think it helps to 'soften' the hurd a little.
