Santiago, an autoflower, is doing fantastic. Like her namesake, she is incredibly punctual and prompt. She only just sprouted yesterday and is already making headway on her first set of proper leaves.
Not so with Boyle, unfortunately, who is a photoperiod stick-in-the-mud. He still hasn't broken the surface in spite of adequate heat, moisture, and humidity. New seeds have been started. The first set of seeds I tried to germinate using my tried-and-true wet paper towel in an opaque box atop my computer method. This time I'm going to follow the seed bank's recommendations, which start with submersion in water for the better part of a day.
