Hydro Grass Monkey (Update 2/20/18)
Edit: removed non relevant information
64 hours passed since I dropped them in water, moved them between paper towels, and all 6 tap roots have emerged from their shell, so they were placed into the buffered rockwool cubes and placed in net pots filled with hydroton. Then finally they went into the veg tent into there DWC home.
It took another 44 hours before we had all 6 of our emerging seedlings show themselves. 100% germination in 108 hours (4.5 days) I have all 6 pictured down below as they came up early this morning. The taproots will have the light nutrient food from when I soaked the rockwool until it finds its way out, then it will be feeding from the reservoir.
And since I see all the cotyledon are opening and green. I will claim this day 1 of vegetation of these 6 grass monkeys. So enough of the blah blah blah...
