Is seed starting the same for watermelons as giant pumpkins ? I know they like it hotter, 90-95 F, but do I still file the side of the seeds ? Soak in seaweed with paper towel in incubator overnight? What do you recommend?

Is there a specific pruning pattern like pumpkins ? Keep main and secondaries, prune off tertiary vines?

Also, when I graft the two plants together, I should pinch of what will become the vine on one of them, correct? I'm really new to this...

I have soaked them and filed but i also have just planted them right in the potting mix and did just as good, Like you say 90-95f to germ and it seemed that the longer in moist conditions the more prone to the seed rotting. So thats why i just plant the seed straight in the soil mix.
