Ok well I recently aqui red some mixed seeds from a buddie. So I decided on germinating them using the paper towel method, I kept them dark and at a constant 80 degrees F. So this morning I check up on them and 3 have tap roots but the tap roots are dark? I could not find any info about this anywhere. Have you guys ever seen this or even heard about this? Will they sprout up? Thank you guys!

Some strains will initially show a purple tail but this is more rare and it will immediatly turn white with growth . I fear what you describe could be a fungus rot , but maybe its just coloring as mentioned ! If the sprout shows sighns of rot it will progress into the seed causing death as a result and this is commonly known as dampening off .I hope you just have pigment showing geneticaly.PPS

Thank you I do not believe it is rot as some others did have bright white tails and the towels still looks clean. I have planted them and am hoping for the best, I will update you guys on any progress, lastly if you can answer this for me I had a sprout come up for a separate batch, and it looks healthy have a bright green stem but the seed is still covering the leaves and it's been like that for like 2 days. What should I do to it?

Take a toothpick and CAREFULLY work the shell off of the leaves.
