I was wondering how long does it take for the plant to grow through the soil once it is planted. The reason I ask is because they've been in there for three days and I havn't seen any growth yet.

It can take anything from 1 day to 2 weeks, i've found if you start them on a soggy paper towel and then transfer them after the tap root has sprouted then it normally happens faster

I dont like the paper towel way. I have riped roots apart before trying to get them unstuck from the paper. Just my 2 cents.

I just germ them in a glass of water. 2 to 3 days you have a tap root to plant.

if the soil stays moist and at a constant temp 70 or above you should sprouts well within a weeks time.keep the light close about 2 to 3 inches, maybe try a heating pad under them.----keep them moist----

What you need is a good humidome with a heating mat. You'll get a better turnaround with one garanteed!!

I had a hard time getting my to pop up in the beginning. Then I took an old heating pad and wrapped it up in a few plastic bags and set it on high (at first) and put my seed tray on top of it, after the seeds were planted. Once the soil got warm, like a day or so, I turned the heating pad down to medium/low. They seemed to sprout a lot faster than my first attempt, which was no warmth under the seed tray. My basement is very cold (during the months I start them inside), so this really helped them to germinate. :cool:

three days is nothing to worry about. gentle warmth should have them above ground in two or three days more.

Ah be nice to the newcomer .... these old post pop up all the time at the bottom of a thread under some such heading like - related posts.... It's easy not to notice when you are new and every thread is new to you.
Good info is timeless.
