      It has only been 2 days. I will keep hope that they will pop. Out of 4 I pray for at least 1 Thanks!

    3-5 days is typical, sometimes longer. I start seedlings in 16 oz solo cups, mist the top of the soil when planted, when the seedling comes up through and is looking straight up at the light I give it 2 oz of water from a shot glass, that will last a few days. I water 1-2 oz of water at a time until theyre like 2 weeks old then I let it dry out and fully water. Fully watering within the first week can easily drown seeldings and suffocate unpopped seeds or cause mold.

      I planted in styrofoam cups and watered the soil first then I made a hole about 1/4 inch and dropped the seed and covered it, and poked holes in the bottom of the cups. I'm just using sunlight now.

    2 to 10 days would be my guideline but let me ask, what was your germination method?

      Paper towel, but then seeds fell on the floor from wind after maybe 16 hours and 2 of the seeds turned green.

      Well I'm not sure wind would be a good thing during germination especially using the paper towel method! Once that tap root gets destroyed, game over!

    The way you are germinating your seeds it could take up to 7 days for them to pop. Make sure you keep the soil moist and not soaking wet or you will drown the seeds. When the seeds pop you still want to keep the soil moist and not soaking wet. When they start growing upward you want to water them in a circle around the base of the seedling, just around the base and not the entire container. You will widen your circle of water as the plant grows. PEace

    I think the more information you give, the better help you will get. In my opinion you dont need any rooting hormones since you have no roots. Besides, any nutrients this early in the seedling stage wont help and will probably harm. I see you did the paper towel method. You say your seeds turned green???

    I sent you a link to guide you.
