Yeah, that's what you want. You want the seed to crack open.

i allways plant mine after they are about a quarter inch to half inch long. I think most people plant them when they are very short. I think it will be alright just dont touch the taproot at all!!!

if the seed shell is still on the top of the root grab it by that. Or use tweezers. I give my plants 18/6 for the whole veg stage witch is usually about 6 weeks and then i switch to 12/12. But you can veg as long as you want to. A lot of people also do 24/0, its all personal preference. I do 18 so my light has a little time off every day and also its a little better on the electricity bill.

It depends on how much room you have. How long you Veg them will will depend on how big they get and how much bud you will yield.
