Jiffy pellet question


I'm new to growing and purchased some seeds from "The Single Seed Company" all feminized seeds. I purchased Lemon Kush and White Widow/Big Bud and they gave me a freebie CR+.

I germinated them in the paper towel method in a zip lock bag with a plate on the top and one on the bottom for 2-days no light with a heating pad for 2-day. The CR+ displayed a root, Lemon Kush and WWBB were cracked slightly. I placed the CR+,WWBB and Lemon Kush in Jiffy pellets for 2-days and the CR+ sprouted so I placed it under the LED light and it is doing great.

But the Lemon Kush and the White Widow/Big Bud has not sprout yet and it is day #6 so I placed them under the LED light in the humidity chamber for 12 hours. Should I place the WWBB and Lemon Kush back in the dark or place them in a soil medium like the CR+??? I need some advice.

Thank you

They do not need to be in the dark but the jiffy pellets must be damp,,,not wet,,,damp! the seed will feel the conditions are ripe to send out roots. If the seed is deeper than 1/2 an inch the sprout may not reach the surface.
other than patient.

Next time you germinate seeds try the glass of water method. I put a seed in a glass of water and put it in a dark warmish(cupboard above fridge) place for 48 hours. I get 99% germination. Much easier.
