How long does it normally take for LG seeds to germinate? I have them in the germ chamber at 85 degrees. Been three days and nothing popped yet.

Topsfield, Ma.

A week is not uncommon...filing seeds is a good idea too!
Newer seeds will germ faster for sure. I've had much better luck starting LG seeds in soil than paper towel method! Good luck

Go to 90 clip the ears or it takes forever.

I agree with filing edges, seed starting soil mix, clipping ears and 90 degrees. They like it warmer than Atlantic Giants.

Thanks. I’ll keep waiting and warm them up a bit.
