I soak overnite (in water and peroxide) and plant them the next day in strofoam cups, with fast drainage as a must. This time a family emergency came up and they soaked for 8 days. I'm so lucky they all didn't turn into mush. One was totalled, 2 look iffy, and 4 are sprouting. But 5 are remaining black and hard.
Anyone know what's up with that? Are they dead? Old? They are not floaters.

I'll scratch them with a file and soak them overnite. See what happens.
