Hi,
I am starting a small row of 6 Dichondra Silver Falls in an small plastic tray. I have it by boiler in a nice warm place. There is not much light in the spot. After 4 days I checked on my little seeds and one has sprouted, but the other 5 have not. Since, Dichondra does not need light to grow and I have had much success in the past starting them in the dark I am now wondering what I should do.
Should I move it under my grow light-or should I wait a day or two more until they all sprout up?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I would move them under lights asap. I don't think they need darkness to germinate.
