Take a plate put a wet paper towel on it put on your seeds cover with wet towel. place on top of your fridge not in the fridgeit but on top. keep wet with in 24hrs to 4 days the seeds will pop open. if not ready to plant place in a ziplock bag put IN fridge and they will stay for up to 2 weeks with out cracking out any more. if ready to plant use tweezers very carefully place the cracked seeds in your cups of dirt. i use regular disposal plastic cups with a few holes in the bottom and i i use a pencil with a piece of tape about 1.5 inches or so up the pencel so all holes are the same depth. place the cracked seed in the hole with the lil white tail coming out of the seed pointed to the bottom of the hole then cover with dirt and with in about 2-4 days of 24 hrs light they will pop out. Works every time. DO NOT USE HEATING MAT as a young cracked seed under dirt goes to the heat as they dont have sun on them under the dirt with a heating mat they try to go towards the heating mat and u will loose your seeds as they tried to grow down nut up! GOOD LUCK

If you go straight to 400 watt u can end up with some problems with leave devolpment! i use cool florecent until the plants have there 4th set of leaves are well developed with a few sun leaves. them move them where ever outside or under stronger hps and mh's
