Hi there. I need some advice re: a White Widow seedling I germed about a week ago. She has popped her head above ground for about three or four days now but the husk of the seed is still keeping her cotyledons closed together.
Is this a problem? I can almost see the first regular leaves trying to squeeze through the gap to get to the light. I normally wouldn't be too worried about one seedling but this is the only one of this strain I have and I really need her to pull through.
Drop a few drops of water on it, it will soften it up enough for it to crack the husk the remainder of the way open, I've had a good dozen do this lately was frustrating me, so I dropped a few drops of water on it, then pulled it the rest of the way open, be gentle, maybe tweezers/toothpicks.
