Hey all, I had some seedlings last year in these pots that took over 2 weeks to germinate, now I've tried more and it's been about 2 or 3 weeks. Should it take this long? If not then any reason why? Strain is Virginia gold

Temperature is probably a little low. The speed at which tobacco germinates is very temperature dependent. At a constant 75f most strains germinate in under 7 days. At 65f they will take up to 2 weeks. At lower temps they take even longer.

Temp is a significant factor.

Having your soil too moist for too long can kill your seedlings.

Some people soak the seeds until they start to germinate. A propagator (anything with a clear plastic cover like a salad container) helps. Moisten a paper towel with warm water, put your seeds in, place in propagator and leave alone for three or four days. Moisten with warm water as necessary (use a spray bottle and drain off any standing water). It worked for me. Also, old seed will have a poor germination rate.
