Some of our newer list members may not understand why your conditions are so difficult or why you started using the burrito method.

KY Zone 6 . . . not perfect but normal enough to let mother nature do most of the work!

Chuck's right - when burrito'ing, you have to take care not to let paper
towel/seeds be more than damp (not wet) & make sure plastic baggies are
loosely folded so air can move freely. check them fairly often to make
sure they dont' dry out. I store burritos in the fridge in a large
<unzipped> ziplock bag.

After about a month at warmer fridge temperature (40 - 45oF), I start
checking weekly for germination. 2 months at colder temp (35 - 40oF).
