    Also depends alot on the seeds and strain. I have some MasterLow that are a bitch to germ as the seeds are overly thick or hard. So I either scuff them or crack them with my teeth after a couple days.

    with a soak in thiocarbomide 3% solution and the paper towel method, 6/6 sprouted for me in 26 hours.

    By 'sprout', you could menan a couple things.

    Most of the seeds I've dealt with have popped within 3 days. That means the seed splits and root tip emerges.

    If your beans are under soil, it could take a couple more days for the cotyledons to emerge.

    Give them a couple weeks to break the surface of the dirt. Some can take a while, and it's temperature dependent.
