marijuana seed tail won’t grow

The problem happened with 10 lowryder #2 seeds. They were cracked w/paper towel then transferred to pete moss growing things in a heated greenhouse until they broke the surface, then moved to non-greenhouse grow area. All other strains broke the surface and were transfered but not the LR2. It has been 15 days so they are certainly dead.

Any ideas about what happened? Could they be bad seeds or was it most likely my fault? I ask because I’m thinking about asking for new seeds but if I’m the one that messed up I don’t want to screw the company over. PLEASE HELP.

Has anyone ever heard of seeds that sprout (crack and a white tail popes out) but don’t develop any further?

Avoid using small grow containers then progressing upwards, use one for the whole season, hey, less work for you and less stress for the plant.

There are 3 possibilities:

We are specialized in quality and not quantity. All seeds are fresh seed stock (3-12 months) and sales turnover is quick among distributors and resellers. There is never any old seed stock on the market regardless of where or when a customer buys our strains.

Some or all seedlings fell over and died

Poor germination results can only be the result of negative outside influences after purchasing the seeds and are beyond our control. This does not necessarily mean that the grower is at "fault". Even the most experienced grower can run into unforeseen problems such as fungus infected soil, a technical malfunction on an EC meter, etc. Often growers buy the wrong soil because it is recommended by the manufacturer or retail store (consult our Soil Guide for more info).
