For some reason I have terrible luck germing lg seeds. I have no issues with BG or other gourd seeds. Anybody have any advice on germing LG seeds?

I go with a lot more moisture in my starting mix and bury them a bit deeper in said mix, 95 degrees. Usually up in 5-7 days. No filing or clipping here.

They like it warmer than other seeds. I do clip the ears off, and scrape the seed coat a bit with my pocket knife. Germination isn't the problem for me, like the brown fungus.
