tomato grafting with David's Maxifort root stock

I am trying to start tomato grafting by using your Maxifort. I have not had much luck, even after reading and following all of your seed starting tips. This all happens indoors with a heat mat, two full spectrum bulbs, starter mix and every other day watering with treated water. Nothing has come up after 21 days. (The package says germination for your Maxifort is 96%.)

Can you provide any help? I continue to have an interest in tomato grafting.

Tomato Grafting
by: Juanita

We have grown the Maxifort with no problem. First, plant the seed no deeper than 1/4 inch. Start on the heating mat but no grow lights yet. Put a plastic dome over the seeds and do not put water in the pots where you planted. Pour water in the bottom tray so the pots soak the water up. If you have been pouring water in where you planted the seeds, they could have become dislodged by the water.

Once the seedlings break the dirt, take the dome off of the tray. Turn the heat mat off and turn the Grow Light on. Grow lights (not an indoor lamp) can be found on Amazon.
