I got my soil test results back a few days ago. I spent most of the day putting soil amendments down. Sure wish this system would accept my pics!

I soaked my seeds for 4 hours in warm water with kelp, Essential and a little hydrogen peroxide. The thermostat is set on the heatmat for 85 degrees F. The seeds were coated with Azos and sown in 3" Cowpots with Mycorrhiza in the seed starting mix. Once the seeds pop, they will then be placed into 6" Cowpots. The roots grow amazingly fast. Usually by 10 days the roots are starting to breach the 6" Cowpots. I have done it this way to avoid damaging roots.
