Emerite/Ramdor bean seed failure
Hi! I am new to this forum, so hello all!
I bought some Ramdor/Emerite bean seed from Renee's Garden, and started them indoors at the same time as my mushroom pole beans. The mushroom beans are thriving, but the Emerites did not germinate. I had given a few seeds to a friend to srart indoors too, and out of the 6 seeds I gave her, 2 failed to germinate, 2 lost the seed portion and came up as naked stalks, and 2 came up normally.
Any idea why they would fail like this? I did read today that these beans prefer a cool germination temperature, so perhaps my indoor temps were not good for them, or perhaps my seed starting soil mix was too wet for them?
