how long for seeds to sprout

How long until seeds sprout above soil?

I planted some germinated seeds in MG and have kept the soil moderately wet. It’s been 48 hours and still no sprouts showing above soil. Should I be nervous or does it take longer?

Also, am I correct in thinking they don’t need light until they sprout above soil?

Wow, I just noticed that one of my plants actually is barely above soil. It’s sort of weird though, it looks like a bent stem showing above soil with both ends under soil. I’m guessing this is normal?

sorry for the noob questions.. as you can see I’m like a parent hovering over their newborn!

Hehe.. looks like I need to just be patient. Now several of them have straightened out and couple others are just beginning to.

DirtyBoy, yeah.. hopefully 6 months.

I’m starting another three today. Total I should have between 10-15 outdoors by mid to late May hopefully.

Got to love how three so far sprouted on 4/20; hopefully thats a good sign. Two of which are under CFL’s and one if placed by a massive “sun” window. (built specifically for plants pretty much) I’m curious to see how they do in that window.
