Looking to get an early start on the marigolds indoors.

I have a germination try that comes with a plastic lid dome, a heat mat, a thermometer to keep check on the soil temperature, and a shop light.

I did a trial run with four pods and put three seeds in it. A week later and nothing was happening so I got in there to see if the seeds were doing anything and they weren't doing a thing. I had them on he heat mat under the dome with a temp between 75-80. They had no light on them and they were on my kitchen counter.

Marigolds need light to germinate. It can even be a sunny window. Keep the soil moist but not wet and in 7 days you should see something start to happen.

That sounded a little bit bossy didn't it. Sorry. That's certainly not set in stone. Just my take on marigolds.
