I've only had successful germination with the paper towel technique. What is the key to this way?

@EveryGrow, no, I haven't had a seed not germinate using this method. Not that I'm popping thousands of seeds or anything but 20+ times I've had no problems. Overall, the less you handle the seeds (and their delicate root tips and hairs) the less chances you have of something going wrong. By that, I've heard of ppl breaking the tap root by accident when transferring to medium. The soak allowed the seed to absorb the water it needs to split the outer shell, and the rockwool holds enough water to get the young seedling upnand going but also enough air is held in the roots to get fast development. To each their own method tho...

i never ph my water when giving the seeds a bath but then not pop many seed.
Manly run clones as much faster

@bigbubsofcheese, I don't ph the seed water, just the rockwool cube while the seed soaks. I wish I could run clones, no space for a mom, so perpetual autos is gonna be my forte...
