Cosmos seeds sprouting in two days

SplandySplandy Posts: 161
Three of my seeds have sprouted in two days. They are in heated propogators. Is this too soon? Does it mean they will be leggy?

    Quick germination won’t cause them to become leggy. The usual cause is not enough light.

    Mine did the same last time I grew them. They spring into life quickly. 

    And i sowed tomatoes on Thursday ... there were signs of life by Saturday lunchtime.

    mine were a similar couple of days and no under-heat....amazing.    interestingly the cosmos (purity) seeds bought new this year (presume last years seeds) came out first then another few days for the other half to come out, which were the balance of seeds i bought last year.
