no, this is tricky to do but once you know how and have done it a few times its relatively easy.
I only do this for seeds that don't crack initially. Those seeds that lag behind compared to the others or where fresher seeds would have thrown 1-3cm tap roots by now.
What i do is take the seed in between my index finger and thumb and take a set of tweezers and align the seed so the ridge on the edge of the seed is in contact with the top and bottom of the tweezers and you squeeze lightly till the seed shell cracks open. Then i just throw it back in paper towel for another couple days.
The trick though is to get some of your "finger meat" in between the tweezer prongs as it act like a bump stop preventing the tweezers from going to far and crushing the seed. Also i use medical style tweezers for this as they have little teeth on the prongs that prevent the seed from rolling or shooting out, like such.
I could do a demo and try and take some pictures later when im home on how to do it if you would like, have plenty of seeds i can sacrifice.
