Mine came up about a week or two after germination. I just put up a blog post showing a photo of my tomato and pepper seedlings at 4 weeks, i.e. 4 weeks from the date I planted the seed. You're welcome to check it out.

Very nice LoriBee - fun to look at garden photos on a stormy PNW dark morning :)

Here's another example of the progression of tomato seedlings:

So, it looks about like 30 days for the true leaves. Thanks for responding. Loribee2, this is our first time to try moskvich. Yours are looking great. How do you like them?

I had true leaves way before 30 days. I sowed seeds on Feb. 19. This is what the plants looked like on March 10:

Boy those look great Mike. So you had them in 19 days.

I put my seeds in on the 27th so I'm 13 days in. Mine are a little leggy. I'm using fertilome seed and cutting mix to start the seeds (linky) and don't believe it has any fertlizer. I was going to wait until the seed leaves to fertilize them. Other than being a little leggy the seedlings look healthy.

17 days since germination (max), according to my log. I sowed them on Feb. 19, the first ones germinated on the 23rd. They are in Oasis Horticubes and a 600-watt MH light, albeit one that only outputs 30,000 lumens. I sowed another 306 last Saturday; in one tray only six of the 102 have not germinated yet. Two of them are under a 400-watt MH bulb, the other a 600-watt, 72,000 lumen one.

Googling oasis horticubes, do you have a hydrophonic setup? The more I find out the more I realize I don't konw squat.

I am trying the moskvich new this year myself, so I don't know! Good I hope! ;-) Good luck!

About 20 days for me. On a heating pad through germination and then another 7-10 days.

Nice starts Mike.
